Artist Birthdays in March


 It's artist birthday remembrance for March!

Van Gogh has a birthday coming up March 30 and surely by then I can start thinking if not of Irises just yet, at least of a crocus or two. 




A long before Van Gogh but on the same day,  Francisco de Goya was born in 1746.




March 6 was the birthday of Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni ((6 March 1475 – 18 February).


American photographer Diane (Nemerov) Arbus was born on March 14, 1923 and died in 1971, in New York City.

March 7 was American modernist painter Milton Avery's birthday, born in 1885 in Sand Bank, New York

  5. If only I'd been born in March I could have had something in common with some of my all time favorite artists.
