Paul Klee: A collection of 277 works (HD)

Paul Klee: A collection of 277 works (HD) Description: "Paul Klee, a Swiss-born painter, printmaker and draughtsman of German nationality, was originally associated with the German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter, and subsequently taught at the Bauhaus, the widely influential German art school of the interwar period. Klee's diverse body of work cannot, however, be categorized according to any single artistic movement, or "school." His paintings, which are at times fantastic, childlike, or otherwise witty, served as an inspiration to the New York School, as well as many other artists of the 20th century." --- MUSIC: Kevin MacLeod - Danse Morialta Danse Morialta by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license ( Source: Artist: SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Felix Vallotton: A collection of 187 paintings (HD)

Félix Vallotton: A collection of 187 paintings (HD) Description: "Born in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1865 and obtaining French citizenship in 1900, Vallotton drew his inspiration from this double culture. Following studies at the Académie Julian and École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he strove to make his living by painting portraits. It was however in his portrayals of Parisian life that Vallotton developed an individual style, which he changed very little afterwards. Vallotton later tried his hand at engraving, a form he soon mastered and received widescale acclaim for, his prints used in many magazines and publications of the day. Vallotton’s engravings primarily consist of large areas of black and white and are characterised by their stark contrast and acute attention to detail. Vallotton’s engraving reached such a level of originality that the various influences which merged within it were no longer perceptible, creating a language all of his own which no longer resembled that of anyone else. [...] It is in his engraving that the multiple aspects of his talent best reveal themselves, whether it be those of the portraitist, the draughtsman of everyday life, the decorator, or the accomplished designer.” The artist exhibited with the Nabis for the first time at the Salon des Indépendants in 1893, where he caused a sensation with The Bath, Summer Evening. His painting evolved towards more stylised scenes which approached his engravings, a practice he turned away from in 1900. The same year, he married Gabrielle Rodrigues-Henriques, daughter and sister of the Bernheim art dealers, the marriage offering Vallotton bourgeois comforts and a solid footing in the art market. "[Vallotton] painted numerous decorative panels and in 1919 he exhibited a large triptych, Mourning, Punishment for the Crime, and Hope. However, from the very outset, these attempts were doomed to failure, because it was too early to seek after a monumental reflection of war." In the last years of his life, he retired into his shell completely, his seclusion marked by his very last diary entry: “Fortunately, there is still painting." In those years, however, he continued to paint more than two hundred canvasses, including many landscapes of the many places he had lived and visited during his life: Lausanne (his home town), the Alps, the Loire valley, the Dordogne, Honfleur, and Normandy. During this time Félix Vallotton painted what he referred to as ‘historical landscapes’, a term denoting paintings he often composed and completed from memories of a place. Between realism, simplified stylisation, and bitter criticism of the society of his time, Félix Vallotton was above all a tireless worker, creating more than 1,700 canvases and 200 engravings during his life. Felix Vallotton died on 29th of December, a day after his sixtieth birthday.." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: --- Thanks for all support!

Lucian Freud: A collection of 226 paintings (HD)

Description: "Lucian Michael Freud (8 December 1922 – 20 July 2011) was a British painter and draftsman, specializing in figurative art, and is known as one of the foremost 20th-century portraitists.

He was born in Berlin, the son of an architect and the grandson of Sigmund Freud.

His early career as a painter was influenced by surrealism, but by the early 1950s his often stark and alienated paintings tended towards realism. Freud was an intensely private and guarded man, and his paintings, completed over a 60-year career, are mostly of friends and family. They are generally sombre and thickly impastoed, often set in unsettling interiors and urban landscapes. The works are noted for their psychological penetration and often discomforting examination of the relationship between artist and model. Freud worked from life studies, and was known for asking for extended and punishing sittings from his models."
