Modern art is characterised above all by the personalities of the artists. Pictures no longer stand alone and isolated as works of art but nowadays they are mostly used in different contexts, as well as in relation to the artists themselves. What would the paintings of Vincent van Gogh be without the legend of his cut off ear, or pop art without the luminous personalities and eccentrics such as Andy Warhol? Modern art is firmly tied to the personalities of the painters. The reputation of some prominent paintings from the modern era can also be partly defined by the artists who created them. For instance, the action painting of a Jackson Pollock or the legend of Claude Monet’s eye disease. The art historical significance of paintings is undisputed but part of the magic comes initially from the artists themselves.
