Christian Krohg: A collection of 158 works (HD)

Christian Krohg: A collection of 158 works (HD) *UPDATE (added over 100 new artworks than previous video) Description: "Norwegian painter, draughtsman and writer. While studying law at the University of Christiania (1869-73), he attended both Johan Fredrik Eckersberg's (1822-1870)) private art school (1869-70) and then the drawing class of Julius Middelthun (1820-1886) at the Royal School of Drawing (1870-71). Having taken his degree in law, he went to the Kunstschule in Karlsruhe, where he studied under Hans Gude (1825-1903) and then Karl Gussow (1843-1907). In 1875 he followed Gussow to the Akademie at Berlin. He remained there until 1878, becoming a close friend of Max Klinger, a fellow student, and also getting to know the Danish philosopher and writer Georg Brandes (1842-1927), who introduced him to contemporary French writers such as Emile Zola and did much to sharpen his awareness of social and political problems. The experience of Berlin, where Krohg lived in great poverty, complemented Brandes's arguments and gave a somewhat bitter and critical turn to Krohg's interest in the realistic recording of the city. Krohg also embarked on his career as a portraitist at this time. While his portrait of Lucy Eyeberg (1876; Nasjonalgalleriet, Oslo) reveals an acute realist interest in costume, especially its varying textures, the portrait of Georg Brandes (1878-79; Skagen, Skagens Museum) shows Krohg also capable of responding to a forceful and fascinating personality with a penetrating study of character. Though Krohg was impressed by Menzel and Liebermann during his stay in Berlin, he preferred to paint in a Naturalist style. Krohg visited Skagen for the first time in the summer of 1879 and visited it several times during the course of the 1880s. The meeting with Skagen, its inhabitants, and the other painters at the artists' colony had a significant influence on Krohg's artistic development. In 1881 Krohg won a state stipend and went to Paris. Next year he exhibited for the first time at the Paris Salon. He was strongly influenced by Manet and joined the Impressionist movement, painting mainly pictures of social criticism. He was one of the first exponents of Impressionism in Norway and in 1884 he began to exhibit regularly at the annual exhibitions in Oslo. In 1893 he won the competition to exhibit a painting at the World Fair in Chicago in 1893. Between 1901 and 1909 he lived in Paris and in 1902 he became a teacher at the Académie Colarossi. from 1909 he was director of the newly founded Academy of Painting and Sculpture in Oslo. In 1886 he published the novel "Albertine", and in 1888 the novel "A Duel."

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: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: (By donating at least 50$ you'll have acces to all artworks (JPEG files) collection already posted on this channel!)

Benjamin Williams Leader: A collection of 237 paintings (HD)

Benjamin Williams Leader: A collection of 237 paintings (HD) Description: "Benjamin Williams Leader father was a friend of John Constable, and a good amateur artist, so he and Benjamin would often go on sketching trips on the banks of the River Severn. Leader worked at his father's office as a draftsman and at night studied art at the Worcester School of Design when he was not working or studying, he would in his leisure time do 'en Plein air' landscape oil painting. In 1854, at 23 years old, he became a student at the Royal Academy Schools in London, and, in his first year, had a painting accepted for exhibition, "Cottage children blowing bubbles", which was sold to an American buyer for £50, (equal to US$7,000 today). Benjamin Williams Leader did not complete his course of studies at the Royal Academy, nor did he have to, because his landscape oil paintings were in great demand by affluent purchasers and within only a few years of his first sale, he achieved great commercial success. In 1857 he changed his name from Benjamin Leader Williams to Benjamin Williams Leader to separate himself from the many other painters with the surname Williams. In autumn of that year he traveled to Scotland and painted A Quiet Pool in Glen Falloch, it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1859 and quickly sold, such was the demand that much of his best work now went to private galleries and was never exhibited. For the following ten years, Leader divided his painting time between the Severn Valley, Worcestershire, and Wales. At the Royal Academy exhibit in 1881, February Fill Dyke was shown to great acclaim and Leader was made an associate in 1883, and became a Royal Academician in 1898. In 1891, his brother, Edward Leader Williams, a civil engineer who was knighted for his work for designing the Manchester Ship Canal, which was to become the theme of Leader's largest painting, Manchester Ship Canal: The Making of Eastham Dock. Benjamin Williams Leader's early works were influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, with their attention to fine detail and emphasis on painting from nature "en Plein air", the inspiration for these early works was the wide open countryside around Worcester. In his later years, he adopted a looser more Impressionistic style, rather than being an exact copy of nature and this turned out to be more popular. He exhibited in every summer exhibition at the Academy until 1922, he was 91 years old." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Correggio: A collection of 172 works (HD)

Correggio: A collection of 172 works (HD) Description: "Born in 1489, Antonio Allegri da Correggio was an Italian artist associated with the High Renaissance. His work is among the most famous of the sixteenth century. His compositions were known for their dramatic subject matter and vigor. His works have also been notable for their sensuality. Regarded as a revolutionary artist of whom little is known, he influenced subsequent generations of artists. His most famous works include The Adoration of the Magi (1516-1518), The Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine (1526-1527), and Leda with the Swan (1531-1532). Born in Correggio, Italy, the artist is primarily known by his birthplace. Scholars believe his father was a merchant, but very little is known of Correggio’s training except that he was the apprentice of Francesco Bianchi Ferrara of Modena. Early in his career Correggio resided in his hometown. One of his earliest paintings is the Adoration of the Child with St. Elizabeth and John (c.1508). He also painted several tondos for the Mantua Church of Sant’Andrea which he completed in 1514. With his celebrity rising, he was commissioned to paint the Madonna altarpiece for the St. Francis Monastery near the town of Correggio. In 1516 Correggio left for Parma where he would spend most of his career. There he became associated with the Mannerist style, an intellectual movement of the high Renaissance known for its artificial approaches to art which was a reaction to the naturalism of artists like Michelangelo and Raphael. A few years later, in 1519, he married Girolama Francesca di Braghetis. She, too, was from Correggio. One of their sons, Pomponio Allegri, became a painter, though he did not achieve the fame of his father. During his early career in Parma, Correggio painted Madonna and Child with the Young Saint John (1516) and Madonna of Albinea (1514) which is lost today. Correggio became known for his innovative interior designs as evidenced by his major commission painting in the Camera di San Paolo of the convent of St. Paul. By 1520 he began to paint the domes for the Church of San Giovanni Evangelista and the Cathedral of Parma. The Parma Cathedral features Correggio’s Assumption of the Virgin (1526-1530) which became one of his masterpieces and most influential works. While Correggio typically painted religious scenes, he is also famous for his set of Loves of Jupiter, mythological paintings that include such works as Leda with the Swan and Venus and Cupid with a Satyr (c.1528). Many of Correggio’s works (which are not attached to cathedrals) are collected by the world’s most prestigious museums." --- MUSIC: Kevin MacLeod - Mesmerize Mesmerize by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license ( Source: Artist: SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

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. "
