and some will always remain


This is where and how I pay homage to some of the artists who have inspired me over the years. They're called "Grand" because they are all older than I — like grandparents. Anyway, I hope I'll introduce some of you to a wondrous experience or two...

These listings are meant to give some leads to start to find much more about these artists. I've tried to be thorough with the more obscure while with others, I've just pointed to the already established sites which often have far more exhaustive links and bibliographies. In all cases, I've tried to have links to all instances where the original work of the artist is available on the Internet. I hope you'll let me know about those I've missed, as well as those links that aren't working.
