I firmly believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it’s definitely true about art. Art has the ability to rouse tremendous passion but what is perfection to one person is an anathema to the next. My favourite works of art would probably be scoffed at by lovers of old masters or pop art, but on the other hand, for me, modern art is completely unfathomable and actually pretty pointless. I normally have a very eclectic taste in most things but my 7 favourite works of art are actually quite a limited style range.

Van Gogh is absolutely my most favourite artist of all time. I love all his works and it’s a real shame that he only ever sold one painting when he was alive. I can’t imagine the joy he would feel knowing how much his paintings fetch today. This one sold for $54million in 1987.
