What is the name of the smiling American painter (pictured to the left) who abandoned his country at a young age never to return, was deeply influenced by Courbet, was an infamous bon vivant, rake, and argumentative, contrary fool, who painted his mother in a drab black-and-white style which his contemporaries thought was wholly inappropriate, and, who like another American, Andy Warhol, changed the world of art (and advertising) forever?
