Best Answer

There may be various answers to this question. Most people have heard of Picasso, though.

How about Rembrandt and Vincent Van Gogh?

Andy Warhol is. He is an very important sculptor and artist.

Another answer:

With all due respect there are others to be considered, too:

Michelangelo, Leonardo da vinci, Rembrandt, Picasso.

Of course, they are not American.
Leonardo da Vinci is hands down the most famous artist in the world.

There are some people who don't necessarily agree that he is the BEST artist in the world and I will not debate that because it is a matter of personal taste. But your question is who is the most FAMOUS, and Leonardo da Vinci is without a doubt the most famous. Just think about it; even though Leonardo died in 1519, his name is still widely recognized in all corners of the world!

You will get different answers in different countries.

In the US perhaps Jasper Johns. In Germany Anselm Kiefer. Etc...

Some consider Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, etc. But their art is controversial, they actually don't "put their hands on". Who do the work are theirs assistants.

And they are not painters!

I don't know if some of the masters of painting are still alive.

I like the artwork of the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes, for me, she's the best painter alive.
