Maximilien Luce was a productive French artist, known for his paintings, illustrations, engravings, and graphic art, and as well for his anarchist believes. Starting as an engraver, Luce then... More > concentrated on painting, first as an Impressionist, then as a Pointillist, and finally returning to Impressionism. Luce depicted a various range of subjects in his works over a long career. He most frequently created landscapes, but his other works include portraits, still lifes, domestic scenes, such as bathers, and images of welders, rolling mill operators, and other laborers. Starting near the early part of the twentieth century, his identification with the Neo-impressionists began to disappear, as he became less active politically, and his artistic style shifted from Neo-impressionism, and he resumed painting in an Impressionist manner.< Less

Maurice Brazil Prendergast was an American Post-Impressionist artist. He exhibited as a member of The Eight, though the delicacy of his compositions and mosaic-like beauty of his style differed from... More > the artistic intentions and philosophy of the group. Prendergast's work was strongly associated from the beginning with leisurely scenes set on beaches and in parks. His early work was mostly in watercolor or monotype, and he produced over two hundred monotypes between 1895 and 1902. He also experimented with oil painting in the 1890s, but did not focus on that medium until the early 1900s. He developed early in his career and continued throughout his life to elaborate a highly personal style, with boldly contrasting, jewel-like colors, and flattened, pattern-like forms rhythmically arranged on a canvas. Forms were radically simplified and presented in flat areas of bright color. His paintings have been aptly described as tapestry-like or resembling mosaics.< Less

Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin was French painter of still-lifes and domestic scenes remarkable for their intimate realism and tranquil atmosphere and the luminous quality of their paint. For his still... More > lifes he chose modest objects (Le Buffet, 1728), and for his genre paintings unpretentious events (Lady Sealing a Letter, 1733). He also executed some fine portraits, especially the pastels of his last years. He was nominated to the Royal Academy of Painting in 1728. Despite the triumphs of his early and middle life, Chardin's last years were clouded, both in his private life and in his career. It was not until the middle of the 19th century that he was rediscovered by a handful of French critics, including the brothers Edmond and Jules de Goncourt, and collectors. Nowadays Chardin is considered the greatest still-life painter of the 18th century, and his canvases are coveted by the world's most distinguished museums and collections.< Less

Johan Krouthén was a Swedish artist who broke away from the traditions of the Swedish Academy, turning to Realism and Idealism. Immediately after his studies, he spent a few months in Paris... More > and in Denmark where he associated with the Skagen Painters. Back in Sweden he painted pictures of gardens and portraits of local people. Krouthén abandoned Realism in favor of Idealism. He was not satisfied with reality without adding light and shade. When interviewed, Krouthén explained that a painter must skillfully and accurately paint nature at its best. Just as in his garden paintings, his interiors often include completely passive figures. He was not particularly interested in contemporary art, explaining: "Art and culture have deteriorated tremendously. Modern art is neither art or nor modern. All the isms people talk about are pretty pointless if they are no more than an imitation of traditional art with a lower level of culture."< Less
