Anders Zorn: 124 Paintings By Arron Adams
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Anders Leonard Zorn (1860 –1920) was Sweden artist who obtained international success as a painter, sculptor and printmaker in etching. His fame abroad is founded mostly on his portraiture... More > where he had the ability to capture the character and the personality of the depicted person. But also his graphic work, where he is among the most talented of all times, is well-known. Known as the "Swedish Impressionist", the painter Anders Zorn is best known for his alfresco nudes. These female figures were mainly depicted outdoors, using the plein air painting technique, often by the sea and in natural light. He strove to reflect a synthesis between nature and the human body manipulating paint onto canvas with rapid brush-strokes. His works were particularly popular in America at the time of his death, his prints sometimes selling for more than those of his mentor Rembrandt. Paintings by Anders Zorn can now be seen in several of the best art museums around the world.< Less

He is best known for his lifelike sculptures that are designed to represent a moment in... More > time, a time in history, or a certain circumstance that people can relate to. He graduated from The Citadel and studied medicine at the Medical College of South Carolina. After extensive training, he began his career in psychiatry. In his mid-forties, he began experimenting with wood carving in his spare time, and soon became interested in carving many different types of wood. It was this interest that led him to search for and collect logs which would become his sculptures. Most of his carvings, from hand-size to life-size, are each from a single piece of wood. Despite his age, he continues carving and painting with no plans to retire from these. He lives in Charleston, South Carolina. William Baldwin was one of his thankful patients and his religious poems make a fine compliment.< Less

More > artist's model for the sculptor Auguste Rodin. John exhibited in Paris for the first time in 1919 at the Salon d'Automne, and exhibited regularly until the mid-1920s, after which time she became increasingly reclusive and painted less.

The Art of Rodin: Illustrated By Louis Weinberg
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The Art of Rodin: Illustrated by Louis Weinberg; includes sixty-five images of his works, first published in 1918. François-Auguste-René Rodin (1840–1917), known as Auguste... More > Rodin, was a French sculptor. Although Rodin is generally considered the progenitor of modern sculpture, he did not set out to rebel against the past. He was schooled traditionally, took a craftsman-like approach to his work, and desired academic recognition, although he was never accepted into Paris's foremost school of art. Sculpturally, Rodin possessed a unique ability to model a complex, turbulent, deeply pocketed surface in clay. Many of his most notable sculptures were roundly criticized during his lifetime. They clashed with the predominant figure sculpture tradition, in which works were decorative, formulaic, or highly thematic. Rodin's most original work departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory, modeled the human body with realism, and celebrated individual character and physicality.< Less
