Leonardo da Vinci: A collection of 148 paintings (HD) Description: "Da Vinci was one of the great creative minds of the Italian Renaissance, hugely influential as an artist and sculptor but also immensely talented as an engineer, scientist and inventor. Leonardo da Vinci was born on 15 April 1452 near the Tuscan town of Vinci, the illegitimate son of a local lawyer. He was apprenticed to the sculptor and painter Andrea del Verrocchio in Florence and in 1478 became an independent master. In about 1483, he moved to Milan to work for the ruling Sforza family as an engineer, sculptor, painter and architect. From 1495 to 1497 he produced a mural of 'The Last Supper' in the refectory of the Monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan. Da Vinci was in Milan until the city was invaded by the French in 1499 and the Sforza family forced to flee. He may have visited Venice before returning to Florence. During his time in Florence, he painted several portraits, but the only one that survives is the famous 'Mona Lisa' (1503-1506). In 1506, da Vinci returned to Milan, remaining there until 1513. This was followed by three years based in Rome. In 1517, at the invitation of the French king Francis I, Leonardo moved to the Château of Cloux, near Amboise in France, where he died on 2 May 1519. The fame of Da Vinci's surviving paintings has meant that he has been regarded primarily as an artist, but the thousands of surviving pages of his notebooks reveal the most eclectic and brilliant of minds. He wrote and drew on subjects including geology, anatomy (which he studied in order to paint the human form more accurately), flight, gravity and optics, often flitting from subject to subject on a single page, and writing in left-handed mirror script. He 'invented' the bicycle, airplane, helicopter, and parachute some 500 years ahead of their time. If all this work had been published in an intelligible form, da Vinci's place as a pioneering scientist would have been beyond dispute. Yet his true genius was not as a scientist or an artist, but as a combination of the two: an 'artist-engineer'. His painting was scientific, based on a deep understanding of the workings of the human body and the physics of light and shade. His science was expressed through art, and his drawings and diagrams show what he meant, and how he understood the world to work." --- 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!
Emanuel Phillips Fox: A collection of 76 paintings (HD) Description: "Australian painter and teacher, E. Phillips Fox was born in Melbourne on 12 March 1865, the son of a Jewish photographer and an artist mother. His father left home in 1866 and his mother remained central to an exceptionally closely knit family. He studied at the National Gallery School, Melbourne, from 1878 to 1886, where fellow students included Rupert Bunny , Florence Fuller , John Longstaff, Frederick McCubbin and Tudor St George Tucker . From 1881 to 1887, he taught evening classes at an artisans’ school of design and, from 1885, he joined Tom Roberts on weekend painting excursions around Melbourne. In 1887 Fox left for Europe, where he studied in Paris from 1887 to 1889 at the Académie Julian and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts from 1889 to 1890 under Jean-Léon Gérôme, supported by his brothers Joel and Philip. In 1889 Fox also joined the afternoon class of the American artist-teacher Alexander Harrison. Fox met up with Bertram Mackennal, John Longstaff, John Peter Russell and Tudor St George Tucker and, in the summers, painted at the artists’ communities at Etaples in Picardy with Tucker and Iso and Alison Rae, and also in Britanny. During 1890 and 1891, he moved to the artists’ colony at St Ives, Cornwall. He copied Velasquez’s works in Madrid in 1891 and visited the countryside near Paris. Fox returned to Melbourne in 1892, where he chiefly painted portraits and landscapes. In 1893, Fox and Tucker opened the Melbourne School of Art, where they introduced students to French teaching practices and promoted the plein air painting approach at their outdoor summer school, held from about 1894 at Charterisville, near Eaglemont. In 1901, Fox left for London, having been commissioned to paint The landing of Captain Cook at Botany Boy (National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne), which he was required to paint overseas. He spent time in London and revisited the artists’ colony at St Ives, where he met Ethel Carrick, whom he married in 1905. In London he met up with George Coates , George W. Lambert , Hugh Ramsay, Tom Roberts , Arthur Streeton and Tudor St George Tucker. Fox and Carrick lived in Paris until 1913, and became good friends with Rupert Bunny and his wife. He was elected sociétaire of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1910. Fox and Carrick travelled widely in Europe, and visited Algiers in 1911, where they painted Arab scenes. Fox mainly painted elegant women and family groups, in which he captured sunlight effects and conveyed the graceful languor of the Edwardian era. Fox and Carrick visited Australia in 1908 and again in 1913 when, at the outbreak of war, they cancelled their plans to return to Europe. E. Phillips Fox died of cancer in hospital in Melbourne on 8 October 1915, aged 50." --- 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!

We are celebrating LearnFromMasters's two years of existence with a special video, '100 Famous painters and Their Studios', hope you enjoy it. It's been already two years since this channel was born, I didn't expect to grow up so rapidly, almost 4000 subscribers, that's proof there are still a lot of people interested about art, old masters's paintings, and look at these artworks with the same delight like we do. Our goal for the next third year is to spend more time searching greatest old painters, and to share with you a video presentation of an artist, every single day, at 10:00 AM. So, over exactly one year starting now, we hope on this channel will be 365 new videos posted. (If, at the end of these 365 days, the earnings [on https://www.patreon.com/LearnFromMasters] will reach 365$ [per month], all the paintings posted on that period of time, will be available for download.) Also, let's do a retrospective of these two years: - 304 videos/266 artists posted (all containing almost 60 000 artworks); - over 500 000 views; - almost 4000 subscribers. Because many of you had requested for artists that turn out to be already posted on this channel, we decided to do a list (that will be daily updated) of all painters already posted here: https://goo.gl/hri4HE --- MUSIC: Kevin MacLeod - Eastminster Eastminster by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100719 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ 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 --- Best regards, LearnFromMasters
