George Inness: A collection of 320 paintings (HD)

George Inness: A collection of 320 paintings (HD) Description: "George Inness, one of America's foremost landscape painters of the late nineteenth century, was born in 1825 near Newburgh, New York. He spent most of his childhood in Newark, New Jersey. He was apprenticed to an engraving firm until 1843, when he studied art in New York with a French landscape painter from whom he learned the classical styles and techniques of the Old Masters. In 1851, sponsored by a patron, Inness made a fifteen-month trip to Italy. In 1853 he traveled to France, where he discovered Barbizon landscape painting, leading him to adopt a style that used looser, sketchier brushwork and more open compositions, emphasizing the expressive qualities of nature. After working in New York from 1854 to 1859, he moved to Medfield, Massachusetts, and four years later to New Jersey, where through a fellow painter he began to experiment with using glazes that would allow him to fill his compositions with subtle effects of light. Duncan Phillips remarked on Inness’s mellow light as a unifying force, saying, “…he was equipped to modernize the grand manner of Claude and to apply the methods of Barbizon to American subjects." At this time also, Inness developed an interest in the religious theories of Emanuel Swedenborg, an 18th century theologian who believed that all material things were imbued with spiritual presence and who proposed a philosophy in which earthly and heavenly realms are united. Inness's paintings throughout the decade of the 1860s showed sweeping, panoramic views of the Catskills, the Delaware Valley, or the New Jersey countryside. Despite their varying locales, these scenes share a spiritual expressiveness in the portrayal of nature’s moods, for example, dramatic effects of weather and atmosphere. In Inness’s mature paintings, the forms of the landscape become indistinct, hazy, abstracted, suggesting an existence in both material and immaterial worlds. Inness moved back to New York in 1867 and in 1868 was elected to full membership in the National Academy of Design, but being an inveterate traveler, he returned to Europe in 1870, living in Rome from 1871 to 1875. Two years later he returned to New York, where he helped found the Society of American Artists. In 1878 he settled in Montclair, New Jersey, but continued to travel and paint misty, poetic, and evocative landscapes. Over the years he went to a variety of locations in the eastern and southern United States, and to Cuba, California, and Mexico. In 1894 Inness made his last trip abroad, visiting France, Germany, and Scotland, where he died. A public funeral was held in New York at the National Academy, which also held a large exhibition of his paintings that same year." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Vincenzo Irolli: A collection of 65 paintings (HD)

Vincenzo Irolli: A collection of 65 paintings (HD) Description: "Vincenzo Irolli was an Italian figurative painter of everyday life and religious subjects. Perhaps Irolli’s most compelling works are his depictions of women expressively posed in dimly lit rooms, as seen in his oil painting In rapture. He notably despised the avant-garde movements of his time, and openly hoped to undermine Cubism by exhibiting his traditional work at the Salon in Paris each year. Born on September 30, 1860 in Naples, Italy, the artist studied at the Naples Institute of Fine Arts under Gioacchino Toma. His works were included in the Venice Biennales of 1922 and 1924. The artist died on November 27, 1949 in Naples, Italy." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: (By donating at least 50$ you'll have acces to all artworks (JPEG files) collection already posted on this channel!)

From London To Paris By Air circa 1923 Handley Page Transport; JQ Music

Aircraft playlist: more at: Early airline travel between London and Paris. The airline is Handley Page Transport Ltd.; the aircraft are Handley Page Type O (converted World War I bombers). The fare was 300 francs, equal to about $25 then (or $350 in 2016). "The daily trip of one of the huge passenger planes in the English Channel Service. Arrived at the flying field we watch the plane being brought from its hangar and see its folding wings spread and secured in position for flight. Ten passengers enter and take seats in the roomy cabin. Each is allowed fifty pounds of baggage." Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The film was silent. I have added music created by myself using the Reaper Digital Audio Workstation and the Independence and Proteus VX VST instrument plugins. The Handley Page Type O was an early biplane bomber used by Britain during the First World War. At the time, it was the largest aircraft that had been built in the UK and one of the largest in the world. It was built in two major versions, the Handley Page O/100 (H.P.11) and Handley Page O/400 (H.P.12). The impression made by the Type O was such that for many years after the war, any large aircraft came to be called a "Handley Page" in Britain and entered the dictionary as such... After the war, O/400s remained in squadron service until replaced by the Vickers Vimy toward the end of 1919. War-surplus aircraft were converted for civilian use in the UK and nine were used by Handley Page's pioneering airline, Handley Page Transport. Eight O/400s were fitted with passenger accommodation and operated by the 86th (Communication) wing, formed at Hendon to provide quick transport between London and Paris for officials engaged in the negotiation of the Treaty of Versailles. Two were finished in silver dope and named Great Britain and Silver Star and fitted as VIP transports, while the others, seating eight, retained their dark green finish... Handley Page Transport Ltd was an airline company founded in 1919 by Frederick Handley Page in the new era of civil flying after the First World War. The first planes were a small number of Handley Page Type O/400 bombers modified for passenger use. These flew London-Paris. At a request from the Air Ministry the Handley Page Type W8 was later used for both Paris and Brussels. On 31 March 1924 the assets and operations of Handley Page Transport were merged with three other British airlines to found Imperial Airways. The company itself remained dormant until reconstituted to take over Miles Aircraft in 1947 as Handley Page (Reading) Ltd... Cricklewood Aerodrome Cricklewood Aerodrome was adjacent to the Handley Page factory in Cricklewood, which had been established in 1912. The airfield was used by the factory and the transport company. Initially though, Handley Page Transport used Hounslow Heath Aerodrome to embark or disembark passengers for customs clearance, as customs facilities were not provided at Cricklewood until 17 February 1920. The company inaugurated a London-Paris air service from Cricklewood Aerodrome in 1920. The aerodrome closed in 1929 as it was being surrounded by suburban development, and the Golders Green Estate was built on the site. A new aerodrome was built at Radlett, where most aircraft were now to be constructed. However the construction of aircraft at Cricklewood continued until 1964 when the premises were sold to become the Cricklewood trading estate. Accidents and incidents On 14 December 1920 a Handley Page O/400 used by the airline crashed on take-off from Cricklewood Aerodrome, hitting a tree and killing both of the crew and two of the six passengers. On 14 January 1922, the Handley Page Transport Handley Page O/10 G-EATN, operating on a scheduled passenger flight from Croydon Airport in London to Paris–Le Bourget Airport outside Paris, crashed while on approach to Paris–Le Bourget, killing all five people on board... NOTE: Although online sources seem to agree that Handley Page Transport operated HP O/400 aircraft (HP .12), the British Civil Aircraft register shows that G-EASY and G-EASN, seen in this film, are both HP O/11 aircraft (apparently meaning HP .11, that is O/100 airplanes).

Ernest Meissonier: A collection of 122 works (HD)

Description: "An important figure in French painting and one of the best history painters of the 19th century, Ernest Meissonier excelled in the production of small but highly detailed history painting. A miserly and conceited individual, he was also one of the best genre painters, specializing in figure painting with historical costumes, often taken from the 18th century. He was also noted for his etching. From the age of 30 onwards, he received numerous awards, including the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour - the first painter to be so honoured. Regarded today as one of the greatest miniaturist painters, the best collections of his work are in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, and the Wallace Collection, London."
