R.C. Gorman was a Native American artist who lived from 1931 - 2005. He was born in Arizona, but spent his later years in Taos, New Mexico. He was a very popular and well-known artist, known for his simple, but bold and colorful depictions of women. I was not always a big fan of his work, but I do really like this one.

"Forest of Beech Trees" by Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt was an Austrian painter who lived from 1862-1918. Klimt is very popular and probably more well-known for his paintings of the female body. I love the colors and texture of this particular painting.
