David Cox: Drawings By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
David Cox was an English landscape painter, one of the most important members of the Birmingham School of landscape artists and an early precursor of impressionism. He is considered one of the... More > greatest English landscape painters, and a major figure of the Golden age of English watercolor. Although most popularly known for his works in watercolor, he also painted over 300 works in oil towards the end of his career. By the 1840s Cox, alongside Peter De Wint and Copley Fielding, had become recognised as one of the leading figures of the English landscape watercolour style of the first half of the 19th century. This judgement was complicated by reaction to the rougher and bolder style of Cox's later Birmingham work, which was widely ignored or condemned.

More > Arcimboldo's conventional work, on traditional religious subjects, has fallen into oblivion, but his portraits of human heads made up of vegetables, plants, fruits, sea creatures and tree roots, were greatly admired by his contemporaries and remain a source of fascination today. At a distance, his portraits looked like normal human portraits. However, individual objects in each portrait were actually overlapped together to make various anatomical shapes of a human. They were carefully constructed by his imagination. Besides, when he assembled objects in one portrait, he never used random objects. Each object was related by characterization. By using everyday objects, the portraits were decoration and still-life paintings at the same time.< Less

Ingres: Drawings 150 Colour Plates By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Ingres's style was formed early in life and changed comparatively little. His earliest drawings, such as the Portrait of a Man (1797) already show a suavity of outline and an extraordinary control of... More > the parallel hatchings which model the forms. His portrait drawings, of which about 450 are extant, are today among his most admired works. While a disproportionate number of them date from his difficult early years in Italy, he continued to produce portrait drawings of his friends until the end of his life. Ingres drew his portrait drawings on wove paper, which provided a smooth surface very different from the ribbed surface of laid paper, which is, nevertheless, sometimes referred to today as "Ingres paper". Drawings made in preparation for paintings, are more varied in size and treatment than are the portrait drawings. He also drew a number of landscape views while in Rome but, with the exception of the small tondo Raphael's Casino, he painted no pure landscapes.< Less
Zorn: Drawings 131 Colour Plates By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Anders Zorn was one of Sweden’s foremost artists who obtained international success as a painter, sculptor and printmaker in etching. His incisive ability to depict the individual character of... More > his model is famous. The model's surroundings were important; Zorn believed that a portrait should be painted in an environment that was natural for the model.

He had worked with this technique since 1882. He had developed his abilities and was now highly accomplished.

More > works were of classical themes in the spirit of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Frederic Leighton, and were exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Society of British Artists and the Dudley Gallery. In the late 1870s and the 1880s, Waterhouse made several trips to Italy, where he painted genre scenes.

Prud'hon: Drawings 85 Colour Plates By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The highlights of this book are the 85 color plates of Prud'hon's academic figure drawings, or "acadamies" as they are known. These drawings dignified and stunningly beautiful.... More > Unfortunately, Prud'hon's drawing techniques have been lost and there is no definitive work describing how they were produced. Many of these drawings have unfinished sections and you can see not only the basic structure, but the construction process as well. This context of Academy training in drawing is particularly important in the case of Prud’hon. Delacroix noted how, even late in life, Prud’hon “habitually spent all his evenings in the studio of his student, M. Trezel, drawing after live models ... as if himself were the student.” Prud’hon was not so unusual in making académies throughout his entire career; he was extremely unusual in making more and more académies as his career advanced, especially as a substitute for finished paintings.< Less
