Igor Grabar: A collection of 112 works (HD)

Igor Grabar: A collection of 112 works (HD) Description: "Igor Emmanuilovich Grabar was born into the Russian family in Budapest on March 25 (13), 1871. His family returned to Russia in 1876. Igor finished a grammar school and then the Moscow lyceum in 1889. He dreamed of becoming an artist and in 1889 moved to Petersburg and entered two university faculties – the law faculty and the history and philology faculty at once. He made his living by writing short stories. In 1894 Igor Grabar entered the Academy of Arts, where he studied under Ilya Repin. In 1895 he travelled in Italy, Paris and further on across Europe, studying works by recognized masters of painting and architecture. After his return to Russia in 1900, he created his best paintings dedicated to Russian nature: September Snow (1903), February Azure, White Winter. Rook Nests, March Snow (1904), and Chrysanthemums (1905). In 1910 the artist became fond of architecture, studied history of art and wrote the first ever History of Russian Art in six volumes (1909-1916). From 1913 to 1925 Grabar was the director of the Tretyakov Gallery, and worked on protection of architecture monuments. The Central Restoration Studios (nowadays named after him) were founded on his initiative in 1918. Igor Grabar resumed painting after 1924. In that period he painted well-known portraits of his relatives, as well as scientists and musicians: Portrait of Mother (1924), Svetlana (1933), Portrait of Daughter in Winter Landscape (1934), Portrait of Son (1935), Portrait of Academician S. A. Chaplygin (1935), self-portraits, and works dedicated to V. I. Lenin. He went on landscape painting too: The Last Snow (1931), Birch Tree Avenue (1940), and Winter Landscape (1954). Till the end of his life the artist remained a keeper of Russian painting traditions of the late 19th centur. Igor Grabar died in Moscow on May 16, 1960." --- BOOKS about Giovanni Boldini: [1] MASTERS OF WORLD PAINTING: IGOR GRABAR --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support! #LearnFromMasters #RussianPainter #ImpressionistMovement #OnlineArtGallery #CollectionOfWorks #OilPaintings #ArtHistory #IgorGrabar

Fritz Thaulow: A collection of 157 paintings (HD)

Fritz Thaulow: A collection of 157 paintings (HD) Description: "Norwegian painter Frits Thaulow was born in 1847 and traveled throughout Europe. Though famous for his landscape painting, he is also known for combining Realism and Impressionism in his work. Born in a small town in Norway, Frits Thaulow was the son of a wealthy chemist. His father’s money gave him the chance to work with some of the leading artists of his time. Thaulow worked with several tutors and painters to perfect his art. Early in his career, Thaulow studied maritime art and planned to work in the field, but he later found himself interested in landscape art. After traveling between Norway and France for several years, Thaulow made the permanent move to France, where he lived and worked for the last few years of his life. Thaulow moved to Paris early in his career and worked on a number of paintings. Though Realism was popular in Norway, Paris was the center of the Impressionist movement. When he attempted to paint Impressionist landscapes, he found himself incorporating realistic elements from his childhood. Art historians now often regard the artist’s work as a combination of Realist and Impressionist elements. Those elements are clear inHorses Watering at the Bridge at Montreiul sur Mer. The interesting lines and pale color choices are clearly the work of an Impressionist, while the realistic look of the horses and the houses on the shore fall into the Realism movement. Another of his famous pieces is Summer Landscape with a Bridge at Beaulieu, which centered on a small creek. In 1880, Thaulow left Paris and returned to Norway, where he lived for more than a decade. While in France, he learned many Impressionist techniques that he later brought to his home country. Thaulow often focused on the landscapes and cities near his hometown. He completed a series of paintings of skiers on the slopes of a small town before moving back to Paris. Moving to France helped Thaulow expand his paintings to include French settings. He created the pieces The Battery and At Quimperle later in his career. Thaulow spent the last fourteen years of his life living in Paris and painting the French countryside as well as recreating memories from his home country. By combining elements of Realism and Impressionism in his landscapes, Thaulow created his own movement, and he’s responsible for introducing the Impressionist style to Norway." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: --- Thanks for all support!

Arthur Bowen Davies: A collection of 87 works (HD)

Description: "Arthur B. Davies was born in Utica, N.Y., on Sept. 26, 1862. He was sketching and painting scenes of the Mohawk Valley before he was 16, when his family moved to Chicago. He studied at the Art Institute there, worked for the board of trade, and went on an engineering expedition to Mexico. In 1887 he went to New York City and studied at the Art Students League, where Robert Henri and George Luks became his friends. Davies's earliest professional work (1888-1891) was magazine illustration. He married in 1890 and moved to a farm near Congers, N.Y.; soon afterward he competed unsuccessfully for the mural decorations of the Appellate Court in New York City. In 1894 the New York art dealer William Macbeth provided him with a studio over his gallery, gave him a one-man show, and introduced him to industrialist Benjamin Altman, who provided funds for his first trip abroad. In Europe he was impressed by the Venetians and by Delacroix, Puvis de Chavannes, and Whistler.

By 1900 Davies had found his characteristic theme: the female in a landscape setting, romantic, nostalgic, frequently with a mysterious ritualistic quality. The figures, small in scale, are often arranged in a friezelike procession against dark and forbidding backgrounds. The mood is poetic, with a peculiarly personal symbolism that is suggested by mythological themes or by obscure symbolic titles. A new grandeur was introduced in his work as the result of a trip to California in 1905 during which he made studies of mountains.

Davies was one of "The Eight" whose 1908 exhibition at the Macbeth Gallery challenged the authority and conservatism of the National Academy of Design. Five of the exhibiting artists stressed urban realism in subject matter; Davies and Maurice Prendergast established notes of fantasy and charm which were wholly personal. Davies was a master of many media—oil, watercolor, pastel, lithograph, etching, sculpture, murals, and tapestry designs.

From 1912 to 1914 Davies was president of the Society of Independent Artists, which had been formed to organize the Armory Show of 1913. This celebrated exhibition first introduced American artists and the American public to the European pioneers of 20th-century style. Davies's work for a period reflected a new cubist influence but returned eventually to the idyllic fantasies that were his natural language.

Though Davies was a habitual recluse and worked in considerable secrecy, he attracted devoted admirers and was generous in his admiration of progressive artists. During the 1920s he executed a series of murals and designed tapestries. He also became obsessed with the act of inhalation and believed that the character and quality of Greek art was due to the fact that it represented figures consciously controlling their breathing. It has even been said that his personal experiments in breathing led to his heart attack in 1923. After that he went again to Europe, where he painted a series of romantic landscapes in northern Italy. He died in Florence, alone in his studio, on Oct. 24, 1928."
