A thread in one of the other forums inspired me to revisit a favorite artist of mine: James Turrell. In my lifetime I hope to visit his Roden Crater Project:

:: 3D ::

Henry Moore; I grew up down the street from one of his "Large Arch" pieces (below).
Saarinen, Eero and Eliel (Eliel's North Christian Church in the background), for their human-scale "art" .

(edit - 10/11/11: I have never, until this moment, noticed that the clock on the church bell tower is not centered)

Image

Auguste Rodin (once you get past "The Kiss" and "Thinker") because his work unnerves me to some extent.; i.e., "Balzac" (below), the Burghers of Cailais, and his many "fragment" pieces.

Image

Lorenzo Ghiberti, for his mastery of material and technology of the day; he resurrected the nearly forgotten Roman process of "lost wax" (investment) casting (1378-1455).

:: 2D ::

Leonardo DiVinci, for introducing us all to the concept of the process sketch.
Martin Grelle; modern western artist with a great understanding of light.
Stephan Pastis; Pearls Before Swine cartoonist - for a good laugh.

I remember my Art History professor discussing his work "The Age of Bronze" and saying at the time Rodin came under fire because the sculpture was so accurate people were sure he'd actually cast his model in bronze, killing him in the process.

Not the greatest, but Andy Goldsworthy's simple style often amuses me.

Caravagio's mastery of light was a revelation in college
