Russian Landscape Painters
Ivan Shishkin: A collection of 352 paintings (HD) Description: "The works of this outstanding artist enjoy vast popularity in Russia; the best of them have become the classics of Russian landscape painting. During 40 years of his artistic activity Ivan Shishkin produced hundreds of paintings, thousands of studies and drawings and a large number of engravings. For contemporaries, Shishkin’s personality embodied Russian nature itself; they called him “forest tzar”, “old pine tree”, and “lonely oak”. Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin was born into the family of a merchant. His father, a self-made and broad-minded man, after long hesitations, supported his son's desire to become an artist. In 1852-1856, Shishkin studied in the Moscow School of Painting and Sculpture, in 1856-1860, he continued his studies in St. Petersburg, in the Academy of Arts. He made rapid progress and got all the awards the Academy offered. Having received a Major Gold Medal for two pictures with the same name View of Valaam Island. Kukko. (1860) and an Academy grant for studies abroad, Shishkin spent 3 years (1862-1865) in Germany, Switzerland, Czech, France, Belgium and Holland. Gradually he got disappointed in his foreign teachers and European authorities in landscape painting. Now he felt free and independent and longed to return home, to Russia. During his stay abroad Shishkin engaged in lithography and etching. His numerous pen drawings caught the eye of the Dusseldorf public and critics by their virtuoso hatching and filigree treatment of detail. In 1865, Shishkin painted his View near Dusseldorf for which he was awarded the title of Academician and which was shown at the 1867 World Fair in Paris. In 1865, he returned to Russia and settled in St. Petersburg, where he joined the Itinerants’ Society of Traveling Exhibitions (Peredvizhniki). One of his first masterpieces Noon in the Neighbourhood of Moscow (1869) critics called “song of joy”. He always preferred to draw daytime scenes, full of sunlight and life. Pine Forest in Viatka Province (1872), Rye (1878), Path in a Forest (1880), Oaks (1887), Coniferous Forest. Sunny Day. (1895). His scrupulous reproduction of nature stood in sharp contrast to the academic canons of landscape painting. For his loving approach to detail some critics called his works colored pictures, which lack of life. But despite such attention to details Shishkin’s paintings do not fall apart, but give full and finished impression. Shichkin had a troubled private life, twice he fell in love and married and twice his wives died. His sons also died. But never Shishkin allowed his sorrows appear on his canvases. His last work is Mast-Tree Grove (1898). He died in his studio at the easel with newly begun canvas. Among the Russian landscape painters Shishkin was the staunchest and most consistent exponent of the materialistic aesthetics – to depict nature in all its pure, unadorned beauty. His role in Russian art did not lose its significance even in the years, which saw the appearance of splendid landscapes by Isaac Levitan, Valentin Serov and Constantin Korovin. Despite the fact that he espoused different aesthetic principles and advocated a different artistic system, Shishkin enjoyed an indisputable authority among young Russian painters of the late 19th century. The new generation did not fail to acknowledge him as a thoughtful and masterful portrayer of Russian nature." --- 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!

Cuno Amiet: A collection of 106 works (HD) Description: "An important modernist artist, painter, illustrator, graphic artist and sculptor of the 19th century, Cuno Amiet is indeed a name to reckon with in Swiss art circle.

William Stanley Haseltine: A collection of 114 works (HD) Description: "A member of the second generation of the Hudson River school, America’s first native school of landscape painting, William Stanley Haseltine is best known for his precise renderings of the rocky coast of New England. Haseltine was born in Philadelphia, son of a prosperous merchant. His mother was a painter and his brothers were also involved in artistic pursuits. While attending the University of Pennsylvania, Haseltine sketched in the countryside outside Philadelphia and studied with landscape painter Paul Weber (1823–1916), who introduced him to the disciplined drawing technique and romantic spirit of the German school. Haseltine completed his education at Harvard College and traveled to Germany with his mentor in 1854. Haseltine settled in Düsseldorf, where he was deeply influenced by the landscape paintings of the German master Andreas Achenbach (1815–1910). The young artist joined the thriving colony of American expatriate artists, several of whom accompanied him on his travels throughout Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. Haseltine returned to the United States in 1858 and opened a studio in Philadelphia. The critical success of his Italian landscapes, particularly at the prestigious National Academy of Design in New York, encouraged Haseltine to relocate to the city; in 1859 he established himself in the Tenth Street Studio Building, where his fellow tenants included many of the most important American landscape painters of the day. Haseltine began sketching along the New England coast, visiting such popular tourist and artistic destinations as Mount Desert, Maine; Narragansett, Rhode Island; Nahant, Massachusetts; and New York’s Hudson River. His paintings of these settings were remarkable for their intense focus on rocks, subject of great popular and scientific interest among mid-nineteenth-century Americans at a time when new geologic theories of the earth’s origins were challenging traditional biblical accounts of creation. The scientific precision of Haseltine’s preparatory drawings and finished paintings reflect the influence of English art critic John Ruskin (1819–1900), who urged artists to depict nature in painstaking detail to reveal the perfect order of the divine plan. Haseltine longed to return to Europe. In 1866 he moved to Paris, where experimentation with plein air (out-of-doors) landscape painting among contemporary French artists stimulated him to focus on the effects of light and atmosphere in his work. In 1869 Haseltine relocated to Italy; his brilliantly colored, large-scale oils as well as his watercolors of Italian subjects demonstrate his continuing preoccupation with rock formations. Haseltine made several extended visits to America but remained a lifelong member of the American expatriate community in Rome. A respected figure in both Europe and America, he served as an art judge for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago and helped found the American School of Architecture, later the American Academy, in Rome. Shortly before his death in Rome, Haseltine traveled to the American West and Alaska with his son, Herbert, who later became a sculptor." --- 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!
Peder Mørk Mønsted: A collection of 284 paintings (HD)
Description: "Peder Mønsted was born in Balle Mölle, near Grenna in eastern Denmark on 10th December 1859. He studied at the Prince Ferdinand’s Drawing School, Aarhus where he studied under Andries Fritz (1828-1906), a landscape and portrait painter, before moving to Copenhagen. Here he studied at the Royal Academy of Art between 1875 and 1878, and was taught figure painting by Julius Exner (1825-1910). Here too he would have come across the work of artists such as Christen Kobke (1810-1848), an outstanding colourist and Peter Christian Skovgaard (1817-1875), a romantic nationalist painter, a knowledge of whose work is seen in the Danish landscapes and beech forests of Mønsted’s. As early as 1874, at the age of 15, he took part in the December Exhibition in Copenhagen. In 1878 Mønsted left the Academy to study under the artist Peder Severin Krøyer (1851-1909).
Mønsted travelled extensively throughout his long career, being a frequent visitor to Switzerland, Italy and North Africa. In 1883 Mønsted travelled to Paris where he worked with William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) for four months. As early as 1884, he visited North Africa returning later in the decade. The early years of the 20th century saw Mønsted returning to Switzerland, the south of France and Italy, the latter being the source of inspiration for many Scandinavian artists of the 19th century. The war years curtailed Mønsted’s travel to Norway and Sweden, however the 1920’s and 1930’s saw him return to the Mediterranean. From 1879 to 1941 he exhibited regularly at the annual Charlottenborg Exhibition. Throughout his long career, Mønsted continued to paint the Danish landscape and coastline. His is a romantic, poetic view of nature; he was an artist who depicted the grandeur and monumental aspect of the landscape, with a remarkable eye for detail and colour. He was also known for a number of portraits, including that of King George I of Greece. "
