I was going to include him in my post, but I felt that some people would have considered 58 "old". To me, he was too young when he died.

I hadn't noticed that Gsquared beat me to it when I posted my comment, but that's okay, cause after all, great minds think alike.

I'm glad that you mentioned Seurat, Modigliani and Pollock, all very important artists who went way too young.
