Ansel Adams combined some of my favorite things and provided magnificent things; he took photography, then took pictures of the outdoors in my favorite type of scenery; the west, with the beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers and all of Gods creations and then put it all in black and white. There is something so crisp, clean and pristine about black and white, almost pure. So picking Ansel Adams seemed like a natural choice, because I knew I would enjoy learning about someone who obviously enjoyed some of the same aesthetically pleasing things that I do. Adams was not only a photographer but an environmentalist, who was born in San Francisco, California, on February 20th, 1902 and after a somewhat rocky and unique childhood, he led an

Ferdinand Victor Eugene Delacroix (26 April 1798 – 13 August 1863) was a French Romantic artist regarded from the outset of his career as the leader of the French Romantic school. Delacroix's use of expressive brushstrokes and his study of the optical effects of color profoundly shaped the work of the Impressionists, while his passion for the exotic inspired the artists of the Symbolist movement. A fine lithographer, Delacroix illustrated various works of William Shakespeare, the Scottish writer Walter Scott and the German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. In contrast to the Neoclassical perfectionism of his chief rival Ingres, Delacroix took for his inspiration the art of Rubens and painters of the Venetian Renaissance, with an attendant emphasis on color and movement rather than clarity of outline and carefully modeled form. Dramatic and romantic content characterized the central themes of his maturity, and led him not to the classical models of Greek and Roman art, but to travel in North Africa, in search of the exotic.
During the time, Northern Renaissance artworks concentrated on the idea of nature or naturalism. This realistic and down to earth art visually showed the real world. The artist, Jan Van Eyck, endorsed and perfected naturalism in his artwork. In the early times, he painted books for hours, such as small prayer books, like lavish paintings of scared and daily scenes. Not only he was a good painter, he was also very good and creative when it came to expressing his thoughts and emotions.
