Berthe Morisot was French painter and printmaker, member of the circle of painters in Paris who became known as the Impressionists. She was described by Gustave Geffroy in 1894 as one of "les... More > trois grandes dames" of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Mary Cassatt. Morisot painted what she experienced on a daily basis. Her paintings reflect the 19th-century cultural restrictions of her class and gender. She avoided urban and street scenes as well as the nude figure and, like her fellow female Impressionist Mary Cassatt, focused on domestic life and portraits in which she could use family and personal friends as models. Her works also include landscapes, portraits, garden settings and boating scenes. Morisot's works have been particularly popular in the United States, and many important works are in American collections.< Less

The earliest form of painting was with colours ground in water. Egyptian artists three thousand years B.C. used this method, and various mediums, such as wax and mastic, were added as a fixative. It was what is now known as tempera painting. The Greeks acquired their knowledge of the art from the Egyptians, and later the Romans dispersed it throughout Europe. They probably introduced tempera painting into this country for decoration of the walls of their houses. The English monks visited the Continent and learnt the art of miniature painting for illuminating their manuscripts by the same process.< Less

Alma-Tadema: Drawings, Etchings, Watercolours By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836 – 1912) was a Dutch-born British painter. He settled in England in 1870 and spent the rest of his life there. A classical-subject painter, he became famous for... More > his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, with languorous figures set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean Sea and sky. Alma-Tadema was a perfectionist. He worked tirelessly to make the most of his paintings, often repeatedly reworking parts of paintings before he found them satisfactory to his own high standards. His work shows much of the fine execution and brilliant color of the old Dutch masters. Though admired during his lifetime for his draftsmanship and depictions of Classical antiquity, his work fell into disrepute after his death, and only since the 1960s has it been re-evaluated for its importance within nineteenth-century English art.< Less
Edward Burne-Jones: Drawings, Pastels, Watercolours By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones was a British painter and designer closely associated with the later phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. He considered that art should be valued as an object of beauty... More > provoking a sensual response, rather than for the story or moral. In many ways this was opposing to the ideals of Ruskin and the early Pre-Raphaelites. In his pictures, there is the lack of realism; the earth, the sky, the rocks, the trees, the men and women of Burne-Jones are not those of this world; but they are themselves a world, consistent with itself, and having therefore its own reality. His credo for art was: "I mean by a picture a beautiful, romantic dream of something that never was, never will be - in a light better than any light that ever shone - in a land no one can define or remember, only desire - and the forms divinely beautiful - and then I wake up, with the waking of Brynhild."< Less

More > Greek word ἀνωνυμία, anonymia, meaning "without a name" or "namelessness". In colloquial use, "anonymous" is used to describe situations where the acting person's name is unknown. It can be said as not using your own name, simply. Some writers have argued that namelessness, though technically correct, does not capture what is more centrally at stake in contexts of anonymity. The important idea here is that a person be non-identifiable, unreachable, or untrackable. Anonymity is seen as a technique, or a way of realizing, certain other values, such as privacy, or liberty.An important example for anonymity being not only protected, but enforced by law is probably the vote in free elections.
