Artists' Involving Light

I'm handing my Art pieces in for my AS at the end of today.

My teacher thought it would be a good idea to research some artists that focus on light, use a lot of it in their work, or connect their work to light.

For example, the course I have chosen is photography, connecting to quotes or phrases associated with light.

Thanks Guys.. any names of artists, or their work would be a tremendous help!
Johannes Vermeer (also known as Jan Vermeer) is probably worth looking up... Wikipedia says:
his paintings are admired for their transparent colours, careful composition, and brilliant use of light.

To tie in with your photography, it is now believed he used a pinhole type camera obscura to project his scenes onto the canvas to help sketch them out...

He's probably best known for his 'Girl With a Pearl Earring' which inspired a recent film of the same name.

Some useful links:

Hope this helps :)
