Picasso tops list of 20th century artists

The Times of London compiled a list of the top 200 artists since 1900, based on a poll of 1.4 million online readers. Pablo Picasso was number one, with Paul Cezanne second, and Gustav Klimt ranked third. Frida Kahlo, slated at 19, is the top-ranked woman. “The results show a strong inclination towards the early modern, towards styles and experiments that have had a century or so to settle down through once-outraged sensibilities, forming the deep sediment of tastes,” the Times asseses. Better luck next year, Renoir.
