Carl Spitzweg: A collection of 78 paintings (HD)

Carl Spitzweg: A collection of 78 paintings (HD) Description: "Carl Spitzweg (also Karl Spitzweg) was born on February, 1808, in Unterpfaffenhofen, Bavaria. In 1825, he successfully completed his education at the humanistic Gymnasium. He then studied pharmacy at the university in Munich. Spitzweg finished his studies with distinction in 1832. Because of a drawn out illness, he gave up his career and dedicated himself to painting from then on. Spitzweg copied paintings in the "Alte Pinakothek" in Munich and maintained friendships with painters such as Christian Morgenstern, Eduard Schleich the Elder, Dietrich Langko, and Friedrich Voltz. He became a member of the Art Association of Munich in 1835. He sold his first paintings in 1837. He gained inspiration on his numerous educational journeys to Salzburg, Bozen, Meran, Venice und Dalmatia, among other places. Carl Spitzweg began a lasting friendship with Moritz von Schwind in 1847. Together with Schwind, he visited the World Fair in Paris in 1851. While subsequently visiting London in that year, he was fascinated by the works of John Constable and William Turner. He started seeing some success in 1860. Carl Spitzweg received the Bavarian Royal Merit Order of St. Michael in 1865. He was inducted as an honorary member of the Academy of Visual Arts in 1868, though he had never attended an art academy himself. Beginning in 1844, he produced many humoristic pictures in the "Fliegende Blätter." In this small format work, he represented the world of the German everyman with loving humor and indulgence as the Biedermeier ideal of "the good ole days." The work which best represents his technical sophistication and unmistakable style is "Der arme Poet" ("The Poor Poet") from 1839. Carl Spitzweg died on September 23, 1885, in Munich." --- 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 (By donating at least 50$ you'll have acces to all artworks (JPEG files) collection already posted on this channel!)

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: 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 (By donating at least 50$ you'll have acces to all artworks (JPEG files) collection already posted on this channel!)

Alfred Thompson Bricher: A collection of 251 paintings (HD)

Alfred Thompson Bricher: A collection of 251 paintings (HD) Description: "Largely self-taught, Alfred Thompson Bricher was a businessman in Boston from 1851 until 1858 when he became a professional artist. He studied in his leisure hours at the Lowell Institute in Boston and also attended an academy in Newburyport, Massachusetts. In the 1860s Bricher followed his contemporaries to the popular vistas of the White Mountains. There, particularly at North Conway, he studied and painted with Albert Bierstadt, William Morris Hunt, Gabriella Eddy, and Benjamin Champney. Bricher was a prolific artist and in 1860-61 alone records 20 finished paintings. Attesting to his popularity as an artist, as well as the popularity of his subject matter, are numerous chromolithographs made after his work. In 1868 he moved from Boston to New York. In 1874 he became a member of the American Society of Painters in Water Colors. He was elected an associate of the National Academy of Design in 1879. During the 1870s he devoted himself almost entirely to marine painting and spent much of his time exploring the coast of Maine, Narragansett Bay, and the Jersey Shore. His paintings were exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum, the Boston Art Club, the National Academy of Design, the Brooklyn Art Association, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago." --- 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!

Francis Danby: A collection of 119 works (HD)

Description: "The Irish born artist Francis Danby is considered to have been the leading painter of the Bristol School of artists during the Romantic period. Francis Danby had settled in Bristol in 1813 and over the next eleven years established himself as the finest landscape painter in the vicinity. During most of this time he painted in watercolours and it was only around 1818-19 that his work in oils began to emerge, his first major oil painting being exhibited in London at the British Institution in 1820 (The Upas Tree). By 1824 Francis Danby was heavily in debt and he fled the city of Bristol in secrecy, moving to the capital in the hope of fame and fortune. It was upon exhibition of his painting of Sunset at Sea after a Storm at the Royal Academy in 1824 that Francis Danby first rose to prominence in the London art scene. Regarded by Richard Redgrave as the “work that made the painter’s reputation” Sunset at Sea after a Storm was purchased to much fanfare at the exhibition by the President of the Royal Academy, Sir Thomas Lawrence. Here was a romantic seascape, which displayed that sublime depiction of limitless scale which John Martin had been using to such public acclaim. John Martin had already declared his opposition to the Royal Academy, but now the Academy appeared to have found its answer to John Martin’s spectacular triumphs through the art of Francis Danby.

Unfortunately, Francis Danby was plagued by financial and marital problems throughout his life and although he rose to considerable fame through his paintings emulating the style of John Martin, he fled England for Europe in late 1829 as a result of the breakdown of his marriage and continued debt. Although he returned to England around a decade later he never re-established the fame which he had attained during the 1820’s. In recent times Francis Danby’s work has been re-appraised and he is now acknowledged for his remarkable ability as a landscape artist rather than just for the few dramatic oils paintings through which he first rose to fame."
