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

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.

Camille Corot: 174 Masterpieces
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796 - 1875) was the leading French painter of the Barbizon school.
Corot often praised as a predecessor of Impressionism, but he painted his landscapes in more... More > traditional way than is generally supposed. Unlike the Impressionists, Corot painted only sketches in the open air; he composed his finished paintings in the studio.

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.

Memories of Sand: Excerpts of Computer Thought Photography
Ships in 3-5 business days
The images in this book were created in the realm of the unseen. These are “photos” from the void that mostly goes unnoticed, the space between computer generated lines.
In 1997 while... More > using a tablet and a Macintosh Quadra I waxed about what was happening in this dance of bitmapped lines. When painting with oils and charcoal I am always fascinated by the texture and mini compositions that happen between the strokes of a brush. As the brush rides across the canvas a universe is created in its “wake”. A professor once told me that every inch of a painting has to be alive. If one were to cut a painting into one-inch squares each inch would become a new separate work of art. Light and shadow dancing with thin and thick, layers of color melt over texture of canvas creating mountain ranges of form in the macro world.
So what of the cyber world of art? What happens in the cracks of the texture of a raster-based image? Is there a silicone similarity to physical paint and charcoal?< Less

I have established 10 IT dogmas so I can reach the ultimate goal: "The World's Best in Fine Art ... Nothing Less."
Read about IT- Dogmas and IT-Equipment.
I have created 325+ works. They... More > follow strictly the context of the 10 IT-Ddogmas.
The result is just FANTASTIC. I use IT in all phases of art.
Some artlovers believe things must be done in the oldfashioned way.
But it's just a tool.
I've got The World of Art Award for my work, then I continue to combine art and IT.
My next book is called "Art Beyond Bounds".
Here I show how I get my IT-Equipment paint a digital painting, to stand and paint, while I do something else.
Rembrandt did this too, but used students, not IT-Equipment.
Right now, I am doing the last tests.
It is indescribable to follow each brush stroke on the screen.
One artwork It has finished in a half to one and a half minute.
So you can easily adjust parameters and "paint" again.< Less
