Can you share the names of admired oil painting artists who employed a “direct painting” style and/or a “wet-in-wet” method of putting pigment to support– who were from Arican countries, Asian countries, South American, Oceania… etc.
I’ve seen reference to Frans Hals, Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Francesco Lazzaro Guardi, Thomas Gainsborough, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Paul Cézanne, George Wesley Bellows, John Singer Sargent, Antonio Mancini, Vincent van Gogh, Anders Leonard Zorn, Chaïm Soutine, Giacomo Favretto, Mariano José María Bernardo Fortuny y Marsal, Giovanni Boldini Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, Nicolai Fechin, Édouard Manet, Robert Henri, Oscar-Claude Monet, Bill Alexander, Bob Ross, and Willem de Kooning.
Who is not on this list? Direct wet on wet painting has surely existed before the Dutch in the 1300s, and I would imagine there are more than few historical giants who used oil with their pigments in this manner who happened to hail from Africa, Asia, etc., right? Who are they?
