Tiziano Vecellio was the greatest artist of the Venetian School, recognized as immense genius in his own time and his reputation as one of the giants of art has never been sincerely questioned.... More > Lomazzo described him as the 'sun amidst small stars not only among the Italians but all the painters of the world'. He was supreme in every branch of painting and his achievements were so varied that he has been an inspiration to artists of very different character. Poussin, Rubens, and Velazquez are among the painters who have particularly revered him. In many subjects, above all in portraiture, he set patterns that were followed by generations of artists. His free and expressive brushwork revolutionized the oil technique: Vasari wrote that his late works "are executed with bold, sweeping strokes, and in patches of color, with the result that they cannot be viewed from near by, but appear perfect at a distance..."< Less
Lovis Corinth: Paintings
Lovis Corinth, whose real name is Franz Heinrich Louis Corinth, was a German painter and printmaker, one of the most important representatives of German Impressionism and Expressionism. Corinth's... More > oeuvre includes more than 100 paintings and several books and essays on painting. Today Corinth is regarded as one of the "Classics of Modern Art" and his works are exhibited in the most important museums and galleries of the German-speaking world.
His early work was naturalistic in approach. Corinth was initially antagonistic towards the expressionist movement, but after a stroke in 1911 his style loosened and took on many expressionistic qualities. His use of color became more vibrant, and he created portraits and landscapes of extraordinary vitality and power. Corinth's subject matter also included nudes and biblical scenes. He painted numerous self-portraits, and made a habit of painting one every year on his birthday.< Less
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was French painter, printmaker, draftsman and illustrator with enormous productivity - more than 1000 paintings, 5000 drawings, and 350 prints and posters. He suffered a... More > debauchery and alcoholism and after mental and physical collapse died at the age of 37. His life has inspired numerous authors. His imaginary style is highly linear and gives huge accent to contour. He frequently applied the paint in long, thin brush strokes which would often leave much of the board on which they are painted showing through. Many of his works may best be described as drawings in colored paint.
Although exhibitions of his paintings were not well received in his lifetime, Toulouse-Lautrec is nowadays one of the world's most popular artists and is represented in most of the museums of Europe and the United States. He is sometimes classified as great Post-Impressionist along with Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin.< Less
Camille Corot: Paintings
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796 - 1875) was the leading French painter of the Barbizon school in the mid-nineteenth century. Claude Monet called of him:
"There is only one master here and... More > his name is Corot. We are nothing weigh against to him - nothing."
Corot often praised as a predecessor of Impressionism, but he painted his landscapes in more traditional way than is generally supposed. Compared to the Impressionists who came later, Corot's palette is restrained, dominated with browns and blacks ("forbidden colors" among the Impressionists) along with dark and silvery green. Though appearing at times to be rapid and spontaneous, usually his strokes were controlled and careful, and his compositions well-thought out and generally rendered as simply and concisely as possible, heightening the poetic effect of the imagery. As he declared:
"I noticed that everything that was done correctly on the first attempt was more true, and the forms more beautiful."< Less
Theo Van Rysselberghe: Paintings and Drawings
Théo van Rysselberghe was a Belgian neo-impressionist painter, who played a pivotal role in the European art scene at the turn of the century. Barely 18 years old, he has developed his own... More > realistic style, close to impressionism. The accurate rendering of light would continue to occupy his mind. He was one of the prominent co-founders of the Belgian artistic circle Les XX on 28 October 1883. This was a circle of young radical artists, rebels against the outmoded academism of that time and the prevailing artistic standards. After van Rysselberghe saw the works of the impressionists Monet and Renoir, he was deeply impressed and start experimented with this technique. He discovered the pointillist technique when he saw Georges Seurat's La Grande Jatte in 1886, abandoned realism and became an adept of pointillism. After 1890s, he slowly reduced the use of points, began applying somewhat broader strokes and after 1910 abandoned it completely.< Less
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The thirty-five paintings on ceramic in Ubiquitous Serpentine have a prepossessing beauty that shimmers and pulses. Disdaining straight lines in his compositions, Lucas’s poetically stated... More > ambition is to “enhance the serpentine,” by which he explains, “are those profound explications of the mystery inherent in nature.”
Lucas’s bold, color-laden brush strokes conjure mysterious, magical gardens. Expressively, almost impetuously drawn, the paintings reveal a cellular essence invisible to the naked eye. These are paintings to be felt as much as viewed, as one is drawn into Lucas’s vision of nature. Designed to inspire imaginations more than to present any cognitive interpretation, they confront us by charm and beguilement, creating a sense of the quixotic and, sometimes, of the foreboding.
