Georges Lemmen: A collection of 113 works (HD)

Georges Lemmen: A collection of 113 works (HD) Description: "Georges Lemmen (Belgian, 1865–1916) was a painter, draftsman, and printmaker associated with the Neo-Impressionist movement. Born in Schaerbeek, Belgium, Lemmen joined the avant-garde movement Les XX in Brussels, a group that consisted of 20 of the most prominent Belgian artists at the time. Les XX hosted annual salons and invited artists from across Europe to show their work. Through these exhibitions, Lemmen became exposed to the artistic developments of his French contemporaries, such as Georges Seurat (French, 1859–1891). Lemmen became heavily influenced by Pointillism, and eventually he developed his own version that consisted of looser swirls of color. His later works became heavily stylized, bearing traces of the Art Nouveau craze that had swept across Europe at the turn of the century. His works are in collections at the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre in Paris, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Edward Hopper: A collection of 236 paintings (HD)

Edward Hopper: A collection of 236 paintings (HD) Description: "No one captured the isolation of the individual within the modern city like Edward Hopper. His imagery of figures within urban settings go well beyond their role as modern cityscapes, exposing the underbelly of the human experience. So while his oeuvre officially falls within the rubric of Realism, it offers a far more evocative look at life between the World Wars. Indeed, by providing a minimum of action, stripping away almost any sign of life or mobility, and adding dramatic means of representation with striking lighting schemes in claustrophobic spaces, Hopper suggests something of the psychological inner life of his subjects, leading the way towards Abstract Expressionism. He injected significance, and the weight of the individual's existential being in the modern metropolis or in country life, into what otherwise might appear to be straight-forward images of everyday life." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: --- Thanks for all support!

2/4 Paul Nash: The Ghosts of War (Ep1) - British Art At War First broadcast: Sept 2014. Episode 1/3 In the years preceding 1914, David Bomberg, Walter Sickert and Paul Nash set out to paint a new world, but, as the century unfolded, found themselves working in the rubble. On 25th May 1917, war artist Paul Nash climbed out of his trench to sketch the battlefields of Flanders near Ypres. So focused was he on his work he tripped and fell back into the trench, breaking his ribs. Stretchered back to England, Nash missed his regiment going over the top at the Battle of Passchendaele. His regiment was wiped out.

Giorgio de Chirico: A collection of 166 paintings (HD)

Giorgio de Chirico: A collection of 166 paintings (HD) Description: "Giorgio de Chirico was an Italian artist who co-founded the genre of ‘metaphysical painting’ which had a profound influence on the Surrealists. Born in Rome, he developed a keen interest in art in childhood and was also moved by philosophical writings. As a young artist, he was enthused by the European Symbolist artists and their use of dream-like imagery. His earliest signature works combined a Symbolist sensibility with his love of the classical antiquities of ancient cities and his philosophical musings on the true nature of reality. He held many exhibitions of his work around the world and was much praised for his brilliant and intricate interpretations of everyday life which were expressed vividly through his paintings. He introduced the world to the style of metaphysical painting and his enigmatic scenes of empty cities, menacing statues, mysterious shadows and strange combinations of everyday objects inspired the artists of the Surrealist movement in the 1910s. However, the element of mystery in his paintings diminished after 1919, when he eventually began painting in a more realistic and academic style. Although his later works failed to recapture the unsettling originality of his early paintings, he is still recognized and praised for his influence on both, the Surrealists and THE later generation of artists. His contribution to modern art of the 20th-century is invaluable." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: --- Thanks for all support!

Paul Nash: A collection of 152 works (HD)

Description: "Paul Nash was born in 1889 in London, and grew up in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1910 to 1911 under the renowned Professor of Drawing Henry Tonks, alongside Ben Nicholson, Stanley Spencer, Mark Gertler, Dora Carrington and Christopher R. W. Nevinson. He served in the Artists' Rifles during World War I until he was invalided home following a fall, and returned to the front as an Official War Artist. He was a member of the London Group from 1914, co-founded Unit One with Ben Nicholson in 1933 whose members included Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth and he was represented in the Venice Biennale in 1926, 1932 and 1938. From 1936 he was a leading proponent of British Surrealism and organised the International Surrealist Exhibition in London in 1936. During World War II he was again an Official War Artist. He died in 1946 in Boscombe, Hampshire, succumbing to the severe asthma that afflicted him for most of his adult life.

Nash's achievements and influence in British, and international, inter-war art are near unsurpassable. Working in oils, pastels and watercolours, and primarily through the genre of landscape, Nash united various artistic legacies and traditions. His war works are without parallel in their evocation of the suffering of mankind represented by the destruction of the landscape, whilst the products of his Surrealist period evoke a quiet unease, a refined uncanny mood that marries the revolution of European Surrealism with the romantic British landscape tradition and the mythological and mystical heritage of William Blake to depict a pantheistic, all-encompassing natural world."
