Christo, and his wife. They are the artists that wrap things. I think they are still around.

Christo still is, but his wife passed on a few years ago.

Until last year, one of my favorites - George Tooker - passed away in his 90's.

No. My art education in school was pretty dismal, pretty much "here's some supplies, do whatever you want." Since I'm much more passionate about music, I can name a few living composers, though sometimes I have to check if they're actually living or not. I somehow doubt I'll ever appreciate art the way most of you do, since I always despised being forced to create it. Like I'm sure there are paintings that I might like, but in reality would be easy for any student to come up with.

Sure, except that I paused for a minute, because sometimes I lose track of who may have died recently, like Zao Wu Ki.

The first person who came to mind was Jasper Johns. The next names that came to mind were David Hockney, Arthur Secunda, Wayne Thiebaud, and Frank Stella.

My favorite painter to buy, if I were in a buying mode right now, would be Howard Hodgkin.

Your comment is sadly true, thought, that once I'm sure everyone could instantly name at least one living artist, like Picasso, but probably not any more.

Is Lucien Freud still around and painting? I remember a few articles on his work in the general press a few years ago.
