Albert Bierstadt: A collection of 404 paintings (HD)

Albert Bierstadt: A collection of 404 paintings (HD) Description: "Albert Bierstadt (American, 1830–1902), a landscape painter who focused on the American West, was born in Solingen, Germany. His family immigrated to Massachusetts in 1833, when he was just two years old, but he returned to Germany to study at the Düsseldorf School of Painting in 1853. While in Germany, he roomed with painter Worthington Whittredge; the two traveled Europe together, and, while in Switzerland, Bierstadt sketched the inspiration for Lake Lucerne. This painting was exhibited by the National Academy of Design in New York in 1858, and led to his being elected to the National Academy in 1860. The artist taught briefly in Germany after finishing school. He moved back to the United States, and traveled west with surveyor Frederick W. Lander in 1859. While there, Bierstadt sketched much of what he saw, and turned many of those sketches into oil paintings. Along with his brothers Charles and Edward, Bierstadt opened a photography studio in New York in 1860, which closed six years later, in 1866. He the traveled west again in 1863 with author Fitz Hugh Ludlow, and continued to return to the West for inspiration as time went on. Bierstadt painted pictures on oversized canvases that romanticized the Rocky Mountains, the Yosemite Valley, and the Native American tribes. In 1867, Bierstadt married Ludlow’s former wife Rosalie. In 1882, his studio was destroyed in a fire along with many of his sketches. Over his lifetime, he painted at least 500 paintings, including The Last of the Buffalo and Yosemite Valley, both of which have been featured on postage stamps. The artist also mentored William Bliss Baker, another landscape painter. Bierstadt was a member of the Hudson River School, a group of like-minded artists. Mount Bierstadt in Colorado is named after him. The artist died in Irving, NY, in 1902." Feel free to subscribe!

William Stanley Haseltine: A collection of 114 works (HD)

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: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- 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. "
