    If it is true that the "Mona Lisa" painting is the most famous painting of all time then one would have to conclude that Leonardo da Vinci is the most famous painter of all time.

    His painting of "The Lord's Supper" as well as his painting of The Sistine Chapel are also world renowned works of art.
    Because art like beauty is in the eye of the beholder there are likely to be some debates as to who the "best painter" ever is. However your question was who is "the most famous painter" of all time. It would be difficult to find any adult who has never heard the name Leonardo da Vinci.

    The Mona Lisa is probably the most famous painting in the world so I guess the guy who painted it: Leonardo Da Vinci, should be the most famous painter.

    I've a sneaking feeling, however, that if you were to simply ask someone to name a painting their probable reply would be, 'The Mona Lisa'.

    Conversely, if you asked the same person to name a painter then their probable answer would be, 'Van Gogh,' minus the Vincent.

    Correction for dashingscorpio: Michaelangelo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel for the warmongering Pope Gregory.

    It has to be Van Gough. He was underestimated and he made beautiful paintings. He was a crazy man, with an incredible imagination. His paintings are absolutely outstanding.
