Flake: Wow that's sad. And that from "leading art schools" ?...
Georges de la Tour - nope
van Rijn Rembrandt - yes (whew!)
Jean-Léon Gérome - nope
Roy Lichtenstein - nope (considering who's in there I thought...)
Banksy's there ? wow.

the fact that 19th century got 4% tells me to stop right there. No Sargent is shocking actually. I can understand that Waterhouse isn't going to stand a chance, but that's plain weird. We gave the boss his due at my school.

Actually Roy Lichtenstein is there... they spelled his name wrong. Not that I'm thrilled by that.
I'm glad Rembrandt is there... figured he's still a gimmee even today, and really glad to see Franz Hals on the list too. But I'm bummin' that Howard Pyle, NC Wyeth and Mucha didn't make the list.

The Art Renewal version of most popular artists...

Agreed, the fact that Hockney appears anywhere on that list completely invalidates it.
I'm not even going to get started on Duchamp.

The ArtRenewal top 10 has a greater majority of romantic artists, mostly Victorian. The 'Art Newspaper' list is more avant-garde (read: up its own arse) I suppose, but all lists like this are completely subjective. What I find amusing is the 'who we asked' bit. Loads of London Art Colleges, and oh, a few from the stix to keep the plebs happy. And how some people voted for the artists' personality rather than the art.
Personally I don't have a problem with Duchamp, but then I also like artists like Yves Tanguy and he doesn't make the either list... unsuprisingly! It is amazing there are virtually none, if any of the Pre-Raphaelites in the list. I actually wonder what art history consists of these days?

Ok, I'm glad I'm not the only one who was boggled by the fact that Duchamp was the top of the list -- and I'm not even an art student. It just seemed an effete answer to me.
My favorites aren't even dead yet
Whelan and Lacoste
But honestly, Caspar David Friedrich is just
It's all opinion anyway when you think about it. *shrug*
But, Paul McCartney was on the list too, that makes me go o.O
