The Famous Artists is proud to include a growing number of wonderful painters with surnames beginning with the letter W. Both of the ‘W’ artists we have profiled so far lived in Europe hundreds of years ago. One was Dutch and one was Swiss. One is remembered for his altarpieces, originating the real landscape and his treatment of water. The other is remembered for his bucolic scenes of idyllic charm. Both left behind works that continue to be treasured and have given both of these men fame and recognition long after their deaths.
Like all of the paintings by famous W artists appearing on The Famous Artists, the paintings themselves are in the public domain but some countries do extend copyrights to photographs of public domain works. Please use the images appearing on this site with the appropriate discretion.
