^^^ There was a Poirot episode where they were discussing Chagall in a gallery, and one woman goes "He is an exile... you can tell, his heart is still in Russia."

I agree with Alphonse Mucha and Giger voters, but my all time fave is Tamara De Lempicka :)

[quote="zee"]Giger and Beksinski!

Those are my two favourites too!

Beksinski was a genius, such a shame he died over something so petty....

I made a little homage to Giger on my wall...
