Another no-brainer: J.C. Leyendecker, an early 20th century magazine and ad painter. Known for his advertising illustrations made for Arrow Collars and his gorgeous stylized, hatch-y paint strokes. He was gay AF, and his paintings of men are so beautiful.


Kay Nielsen, another art nouveau-inspired children's book and fairy tale illustrator who also collaborated with Disney (most notably on the Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria sequence in "Fantasia"). He also did some concept art for an earlier adaptation of "The Little Mermaid" which ultimately didn't happen; at least not until 1989, long after his death.
