Visual artists and writers of the GrotesqueThis is a list of artists, movements and theorists sourced here, for a Wikipedia list (of which I have excluded the entries on Philip Thomson's list), see here.
Compared to Thomson's list, this list is more concerned with the twentieth century. Obviously missing from it is La Fura Dels Baus.
