Edouard Vuillard: A collection of 686 works (HD) Description: "Edouard Vuillard was born in 1868 in Cuiseaux, a tiny French town near the Swiss border. At age nine, he moved with his family to Paris. His father, a retired army officer, died several years later, leaving his mother, Marie, with three children and only a small income. She came from a family of textile designers, and to make a living she first operated a lingerie shop and then a dressmaking business from the succession of Paris apartments that the family occupied. Edouard lived with his mother, his greatest supporter, for her entire life, surrounded by the women and fabrics that filled her work room. In 1888 Vuillard studied briefly at the École des Beaux-Arts under Jean-Léon Gérôme, but disliked the conservative approach. Later that year he moved to the Académie Julian, where he met other young artists who rejected both academic art and impressionism. Vuillard associated with this group, known as the Nabis. He first made small expressive paintings of interiors using flats bands of color, then began adding detailed surface patterns to his work, creating enchanting paintings of women in domestic interiors. By the turn of the century he was making striking, large-scale decorative wall paintings and folding screens, and later, portraits of prosperous French families. While Vuillard's art remained figurative, his intense focus on the picture surface itself—the flattened, sometimes unpainted support patterned with figures that blended with their surroundings—would foreshadow elements of abstraction in the twentieth century. Vuillard died at the beginning of World War II, just as the quiet, domestic world he had painted for so many years was about to be shattered." --- 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 --- Thanks for all support!
John Maler Collier: A collection of 209 paintings (HD) Description: "The Honorable John Collier was an important artist who painted portraits, dramatic themes, and landscapes. He was educated at the Eton School and studied art in Munich and Heidelberg, as well as at the Slade School under Poynter and in Paris under Laurens. He also was encouraged by Millais and Alma-Tadema. He established a highly successful practice painting society portraits and exhibited 83 times at the famous Royal Academy in London. He also exhibited over 100 times at other prestigious galleries, including Suffolk Street, the Royal Hibernian Academy, and the Society of French Artists. Among his sitters were Charles Darwin, Professor Huxley, and the Dukes of Cornwall and York. His subject paintings, like those of William Orchardson, RA, catered to the psychological dramas of upper class life. This outstanding work is a fine example of Collier's painterly approach to light, color, and design. The Honourable John Collier O.B.E., R.P., R.O.I., was one of the most prominent portrait painters of his generation. Born in 1850, he was the son of a judge and amateur artist, Lord Monkswell. He was educated at E¬¬ton and studied at the Slade School of Art under Sir Edward Poynter, in Paris under Jean-Paul Laurens, and in Munich. Although not their pupil, he was encouraged and influenced by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Sir John Everett Millais. "It was from Millais that he learnt the method, which he has ever since adopted in portraiture, of putting sitter and canvas side by side, looking at them from some distance, and walking backwards and forwards to do the actual painting." (Polloch, W.H., The Art of the Honourable John Collier (1914), p 2). Collier was one of the 24 founding members of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, of which he became Vice President and was also a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He exhibited no fewer than one hundred and thirty paintings at the Royal Academy and one hundred and sixty five at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, as well as many others in galleries throughout the country and abroad. He was the author of The Primer of Art (1882), A Manual of Oil Painting (1886) and The Art of Portrait Painting (1905). He was awarded the O.B.E. in 1920 and he was the subject of The Art of the Honourable John Collier (1914) by W.H. Pollock, published by the Art Journal, which lists all his most important subjects between 1875 and 1914, which included portraits, historical and other dramatic scenes. It has fifty illustrations and six colour plates of his works, and an interesting photograph of his studio. The range of Collier's portrait subjects can be seen from the fact that, in 1893, for example, his subjects included the Bishop of Shrewsbury (Sir Lovelace Stamer), A Glass of Wine with Caesar Borgia, Sir John Lubbock F.R.S., A.N. Hornby (Captain of the Lancashire Eleven), A Witch, A Tramp, and the Bishop of Hereford (Dr. Atlee). His commissioned portrait of King George V as Master of Trinity House in 1901 when Duke of Cornwall and York, although very far from being his best work, shows the extent of his fashionable reputation. Other subjects included two Lord Chancellors (the Earl of Selborne in 1882 and the Earl of Halsbury in 1898), the Lord Chief Justice Lord Alverstone (1912), and the Master of the Rolls (Sir George Jessel, 1881); Rudyard Kipling (1891); the painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1884); and scientists including Charles Darwin (1882), Dr. Joule F.R.S. (1882) and the artist’s father-in-law Professor Huxley (1891)." --- 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 --- Thanks for all support!

Sir Luke Fildes: A collection of 54 paintings (HD) Description: "Fildes was born to a nonartistic family in Liverpool, and started modestly with evening classes in art and design in Chester, where he spent his youth. He then studied design at Warrington, and then turned completely to fine art, moving to London and enrolling at the South Kensington Schools in 1863. In 1866 he gained admission to the Academy Schools, and from 1867, while still a student, he earned his living by drawing on wood. When The Graphic started in 1869, he was invited along with others who became the important painters of the plight of the poor - Herkomer, Holl, Walker and also Pinwell - to contribute. In this magazine appeared his The Casuals, which later became the famous oil painting. Among various good things for the magazines and books, he illustrated Dickens's last work, Edwin Drood. Fildes' first picture at the Royal Academy was in fact a Marcus Stone-like picture of lovers on a boat with accompanying swans called Fair, Quiet and Sweet Rest. In 1873 he exhibited Simpletons, and in 1874 Applicants for Admission to a Casual Ward, which was the picture of the year, and required a rail and policeman to keep back the crowds of onlookers. In 1875 his Academy picture was Betty, 'a buxom milkmaid', but in 1876 came another important social picture, The Widower. In 1877 Fildes moved into the artist's district centred around Leighton's house in Holland Park, with a house in Melbury Road designed by Richard Norman Shaw (who built a house for Marcus Stone in the same road). In 1879 Fildes was elected ARA, one year after Frank Holl and a year before Herkomer, and in 1887 he became RA (his diploma picture was The Schoolgirl). Fildes took great pains to make sure that his pictures were authentic and of genuine people from the streets, and for example for the painting The Doctor (1891), recreated a whole poor bedroom in his studio. He was much praised for the 'Dickensian study of character' of his work." --- 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 --- Thanks for all support!
Arthur Hacker: A collection of 90 paintings (HD)
Description: "Arthur Hacker was perhaps the most versatile of late Victorian artists and his regular and popular exhibits at the Royal Academy and New Gallery include paintings of contemporary drama, mythological and Biblical narrative, landscapes and still lifes. He also established a lucrative portrait painting practice in the early twentieth century, among his sitters being the artists Frank Short, Onslow Ford, William Goscombe John and Ernest Newton. As the son of a line engraver it is perhaps surprising that he did not undertake many commissions for book illustration and devoted his artistic output to oil paintings, often on a large scale. He entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1876 and graduated in 1880 whereupon he travelled to Paris and trained in the atelier of Léon Bonnat. One of his fellow pupils was Stanhope Forbes and like Forbes Hacker was much influenced by French art. His painting of French peasant life Her Daughter's Legacy attracted much attention at the Royal Academy in 1881. In 1886 Hacker helped to found the progressive New English Art Club, an association which appears rather contrary to the academic ideals expressed in the picture he exhibited at the Academy a year later, Pelagia and Philammon (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool). Other pictures in a similar High Victorian vein include, The Temptation of Sir Percival of 1894 (Leeds City Art Gallery), The Cloister of the World of 1897 (Cartwright Hall Art Gallery and Museum), And There was a Great Cry in Egypt of 1897 (private collection). These paintings made Hacker famous and popular in the 1890s but as the taste for grand subject pictures began to wain in the twentieth century, he concentrated upon portraiture and modern genre subjects."
