Evelyn Pickering de Morgan (1850-1919): Evelyn Pickering de Morgan was one of the women artists of the Pre-Raphaelite School.She was born into a wealthy family who had hoped she would make a socially prominent marriage.Evelyn, however, aspired to a career in art and she secretly studied art. Her teacher was her uncle the artist John Roddam Spencer-Stanhope. She later attended the Slade School of Art and was able to enjoy a distinguished career. She was married to the potter William de Morgan and was part of the Pre-Raphaelite circle that included Edward Burne-Jones. Morgan's paintings reflect the influence of Jones, but in addition to the Pre-Raphaelite themes and subject, de Morgan also evolved into more allegorical and symbolic themes and subjects. Her painting The Prisoner for instance is a poignant commentary on the status of women during the Victorian and early Edwardian eras
Berthe Morisot (1841-1895): Berthe Morisot was born in Bourges to a well-to-do family devoted to art.

Morisot herself painted a broad range of subjects.Her paintings include still-life studies, paintings of women in domestic as well as social surroundings, and landscapes.

Francis Bacon (British expressionist)Self-portraitEnglish painter of Irish birth. Francis Bacon came to London in 1925 and although he received no formal art training, he created a sensation in 1945 when he exhibited his Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion (London, Tate Gallery) at the Lefevre Gallery in London. His work was Expressionist in style, and his distorted human forms were unsettling. He developed his personal style and gloomy subject matter during the 1950s, when he achieved an international reputation. Aside from his unpleasant images of corrupt and disgusting humanity, Bacon deliberately subverted artistic conventions by using the triptych format of Renaissance altarpieces to show the evils of man, rather than the virtues of Christ. In Pope Innocent X he reworked a famous portrait by Velazquez into a screaming mask of angst."
And it all flowed from one central insight: that in a culture glutted with information, where most people experience most things at second or third hand through TV and print, through images that become banal and disassociated by repeated again and again and again, there is role for affectless art. You no longer need to be hot and full of feeling. You can be supercool, like a slightly frosted mirror. Not that Warhol worked this out; he didn't have to. He felt it and embodied it. He was a conduit for a sort of collective American state of mind in which celebrity - the famous image of a person, the famous brand name - had completely replaced both sacredness and solidityANDY WARHOL16 Jackies
"Roy Lichtenstein was the master of the stereotype, and the most sophisticated of the major Pop artists in terms of his analysis of visual convention and his ironic exploitation of past styles. The work for which he is now known was the product of a long apprenticeship.Previous imageRoy Lichtenstein In the Car
