    Are there any modern artists who paint in the classical renaissance art style?

    I love the classical Italian art, but most modern art now is just shapes and colors and the artist says that it's a statement on some controversial subject that's happening today.

    Are there any painters that still paint with this style?

    I think you are confusing the dated phrase "modern" with the word contemporary.

    Is that for me? I suppose i did not phrase my post correctly. I dont think modern art applies anymore to my knowledge, I think the types of art the OP was referring to are now alloted to their own specific categories and referring to modern art as encompassing all art created today is incorrect.

    But if I'm wrong, please correct me.

    If you had bothered to look, just for a second, you would have answered your own question.

    Of course! At FSU, a professor I know trained classically teaches a course specifically designed to teach the students how the old masters created their works.

    i've often thought about making a painting completely from scratch, that is, mix my own pigments, make a proper ground, build the frame, boil my own rabbits... no modern shortcuts. one day i'll follow through i hope.

    Fred Wessel comes to mind. He uses tempera and gold leaf in pretty much a Renaissance sort of style:

    I have wanted to incorporate Baroque style ever since reading Burne Hogarth's books in which he praises it. Tons of hard work though; and I need to go back to basics to fill in some gaps. I see what you are asking though- it is awesome when the elegant classical styles are combined with exciting modern themes.

    Adrian Gottlieb is incredible. http://www.adriangottlieb.com/

    Dammit, I hate it when they modify their sigs after they post! At least it's reassuring that a real person wasn't so clueless.
