Pierre Auguste Cot (17 February 1837 – 2 August 1883) was a French painter of the Academic Classicism school.

The Honourable John Maler Collier  (27 January 1850 – 11 April 1934) was a leading English artist, and an author. He painted in the Pre-Raphaelite style, and was one of the most prominent portrait painters of his generation. Both his marriages were to daughters of Thomas Henry Huxley. He studied painting at the Munich Academy where he enrolled on 14 April 1875 (Register: 3145) at the age of 25.

Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet (10 June 1819 – 31 December 1877) was a French painter who led the Realist movement in 19th-century French painting. The Realist movement bridged the Romantic movement (characterized by the paintings of Théodore Géricault and Eugène Delacroix) with the Barbizon School and the Impressionists. Courbet occupies an important place in 19th century French painting as an innovator and as an artist willing to make bold social commentary in his work.

Vittorio (or Vittore) Crivelli was an Italian painter, brother of Carlo Crivelli. Born ca. 1440 in Venice, dead in Venice 1501 or 1502. His works are similar in style to his brother's, but less accomplished.

Paul Cézanne ( 1839–1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed.

Alexandre Cabanel won the Prix de Rome in 1845 and was consequently deemed as one of the finest academic painters of his time. His was also avidly opposed to the Impressionist movement. His famous painting The Birth of Venus was exhibited at the Salon in 1863 and earned Cabanel several commissions Napoleon III.

Pavel Petrovich Chistyakov (Russian: ́ ́ ́) (July 5 [O.S. June 23] 1832 – November 11, 1919) was a Russian painter and teacher of art. He studied at the St.Petersburg Academy of arts (1849 - 1861) under Petr Basin. He was a pensioner of the Academy of Arts in Paris and in Rome (1862-1870). He taught in the Drawing School of the Petersburg Society for the Encouragement of the Applied Arts (1860-1864), and in St.Petersburg ( 1872) he was the professor-head of workshop (1908-1910) and managing mosaic branch (1890-1912).

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, (29 September 1571 – 18 July 1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta and Sicily between 1593 and 1610. His intensely emotional realism and dramatic use of lighting had a formative influence on the Baroque school of painting.

Lodovico Cardi, also known as Cigoli (1559 – 1613), was an Italian painter and architect of the late Mannerist and early Baroque period, trained and active in his early career in Florence, and spending the last nine years of his life in Rome. He was a pupil of Alessandro Allori, whom he inherited the tradition of late Mannerism, but his sensuous colour and brushwork reveal the influence of Barocci, Correggio, and Venetian painting. 1604 he spent most of his time in Rome, and his dramatic handling of light shows the impact of Caravaggio (Ecce Homo, 1606, Pitti, Florence). Cigoli also worked as an architect; he had scholarly inclinations and was a friend of Galileo.

Carlo Crivelli (b. 1430/35, Venezia, d. 1495, Camerino). Italian painter. He was born in Venice and always signed himself as a Venetian, but he spent most of his career working in the Marches, particularly at Asconi Picelo, and he also lived for some time at Zara in Dalmatia (now Croatia). His paintings are all of religious subjects, done in a n elaborate, old-fashioned style that owes much to the wiry Paduan tradition of Francesco Squarcione and Andrea Mantegna and yet is highly distinctive. Their dense ornamentation is often increased by the use of gesso decoration combined with the paint. The finest collection of his works is in the National Gallery in London and includes the delightful and much reproduced Annunciation (1486). Vittorio Crivelli (died 1501-02), Carlo's brother, was a faithful but pedestrian follower.
