Andre Lhote: A collection of 195 works (HD)

Andre Lhote: A collection of 195 works (HD) Description: "André Lhote was a French Cubist painter, art critic, and teacher. The artist successfully combined the angular aesthetics of Cubism with the bright palette of Post-Impressionism in depicting landscapes, and still lifes. “To use color well is as difficult as for a fish to pass from water to air or earth,” he once mused. Born on July 5, 1885 in Bordeaux, France, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, initially influenced by the works of Paul Gauguin and Paul Cézanne. Lhote later fell into the influential Parisian milieu known as the Section d’Or, which included Marcel Duchamp, Jean Metzinger, and the poet Guillaume Apollinaire. His major works during this period include Cordes (1912) and Le Porte of Bordeaux (1914). After serving in the French army during World War I, Lhote began contributing articles to the Nouvelle Revue Française and founded his own painting school, instructing artists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Margaret LaFranc. He was awarded the Grand Prix National de Peinture in 1955, and in 1957 the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris hosted a solo exhibition of his work. He died on January 24, 1962 in Paris, France. Today, Lhote’s works are included in the collections of the Tate Gallery in London, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the Albertina in Vienna, among others." --- SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com SUPPORT MY WORK AT: https://www.patreon.com/LearnFromMasters LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: https://goo.gl/hri4HE --- Thank you so much for your support!

Samuel Peploe: A collection of 270 paintings (HD)

Samuel Peploe: A collection of 270 paintings (HD) Description: "Born in Edinburgh in 1871 and educated at the Collegiate School in Charlotte Square, Samuel John Peploe had good academic ability but no interest in the professions, preferring to walk, sail or sketch. By 1893 he was enrolled for classes in The Trustees' Academy, the forerunner of Edinburgh College of Art, and the following year was in Paris at the Academie Julian under the neo-classicist William Bouguereau, and later at the Academie Colarossi. Long study nurtured his natural ability and helped him perfect an early style based on the Dutch masters. From 1901, Peploe began a lifelong habit of taking painting trips to northern France and to the Hebrides, with J D Fergusson. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Scottish Academy, and the Royal Glasgow Institute from 1900 and had his first one-man show at the Scottish Gallery in 1903. By 1906 his earlier still life and figure paintings, characterised by dark backgrounds, gave way to paler colours, greys and pinks. This was in part due to a move to a new, lighter studio in York Place. His second exhibition in 1909 was successful but his eyes were turning to Paris and the next year he moved and married Margaret MacKay whom he had met on a painting trip to Barra in 1894. France liberated his palette as evidenced by Fauvist panels painted in Royan (1910), Cassis (1911, 1913) and in Paris. His stuido paintings show the influence of Van Gogh and de Segonzac. The Peploes came back to Edinburgh in 1912 with dozens of paintings much too advanced for Edinburgh. Rejected by his old dealer, Peploe put on his own show a the New Gallery in Shandwick Place, where the Society of Eight had their inaugural exhibition in the same year. For the next fifteen years Peploe retained a brilliant palette, evolving a mature style containing elements of Cezanne, the Jazz Age and Matisse. By the late 1920's he had reverted to a more sonorous, tonal painting, still enlivened by brilliant colour chords, but weightier and cooler. In 1933 he taught two terms at the College of Art in Edinburgh, making a considerable impact. Best known for his still lifes of tulips, Peploe had a wide range of subjects including figure painting and particularly landscape.

Giuseppe Casciaro: A collection of 132 works (HD)

Giuseppe Casciaro: A collection of 132 works (HD) Description: "Born in the province of Lecce, Giuseppe Casciaro enjoyed a long and successful career of some sixty years. He was a pupil of Filippo Palizzi, Gioacchino Toma, Stanislao Lista and Domenico Morelli at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples, where he won numerous prizes. Casciaro developed a particular proficiency for landscape drawings in pastel, although he also painted a handful of oil paintings. He may have first been inspired to take up the medium of pastel in 1885, when a series of pastel drawings by the artist Francesco Paolo Michetti was shown in Naples. Two years later, in 1887, Casciaro exhibited a series of eleven pastel landscapes of his own, and he remained devoted to the medium throughout his career. Indeed, he may be regarded as one of the finest practitioners of the art of the pastel landscape working in Italy during this period. Casciaro settled on the hillside quarter of Naples known as the Vomero, sharing a studio with the painter Attilio Pratella, and for much of his life his preferred subject matter were views in and around Naples and the islands of Capri and Ischia. Between 1892 and 1896 Casciaro travelled regularly to Paris, where he had a one-man exhibition and received commissions from the dealer Adolphe Goupil. Appointed a professor at the Accademia in Naples in 1902, by 1906 he was also engaged as a tutor in pastel drawing to the Queen of Italy, Elena di Savoia. Casciaro exhibited frequently in Naples and at the Biennale in Venice, and won a bronze medal at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900. His work was also exhibited throughout Europe; in Munich, Barcelona, Prague, Athens and St. Petersburg, as well as in San Francisco, Tokyo and in South America." --- MUSIC: Kevin MacLeod - Mesmerize Mesmerize by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1500005 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com SUPPORT MY WORK AT: https://www.patreon.com/LearnFromMasters LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: https://goo.gl/hri4HE --- Thank you so much for your support! #LearnFromMasters #ItalianPainter #GiuseppeCasciaro #OnlineArtGallery #CollectionOfPaintings #ArtHistory #TASCHEN

Alfred Henry Maurer: A collection of 248 works (HD)

Description: "Alfred Maurer was born in New York on April 21, 1868. In 1884, he studied at the National Academy of Design, New York, where he became recognized as an accomplished painter of portraits, inspired by ames Whistler and American impressionist William Merritt Chase

From 1897–1914 Maurer lived in Paris where he became acquainted with fellow Americans Gertrude and Leo Stein. It was in the Stein’s salon, a well-known meeting place for Americans and modern French artists, that Maurer met Henri Matisse.

Matisse’s use of color in his fauvist paintings influenced Maurer’s work, and between 1905 and 1914, he began creating paintings using the bold fauve palette and the dark outlines of pre-cubist art.

He exhibited in 1909 at Alfred Stieglitz's Gallery 291 in New York, in the 1913 New York Armory Show, and was an associate member of the modernist Salon d’Automne in Paris.

In 1914, on the eve of World War I, Maurer permanently returned to New York.

In 1924, art dealer Ernest Weyhe purchased the contents of Maurer’s studio, over 255 works, and Weyhe became his artistic representative, providing Maurer financial security.

At the age of 64, Maurer took his own life on August 4, 1932, just several weeks after his father’s death. Though he had little commercial success in his lifetime, he is highly respected in the art world today. "
