Thomas Moran: A collection of 342 paintings (HD)

Thomas Moran: A collection of 342 paintings (HD) Description: "Thomas Moran was born in 1837 in Bolton, Lancashire to two handloom weavers. The rapid industrialization of nineteenth century England soon mechanized the weaving process and forced Thomas Moran's parents out of their jobs, at which point the whole family was moved to Kensington, Philadelphia, just outside of Philadelphia. At the age of sixteen, Thomas Moran became an apprentice to a Philadelphia wood engraving firm, Scattergood & Telfer. It was in this position that he began to paint and draw seriously, working diligently on his skills as both a watercolorist and an illustrator. In this he had help and support from his brother Edward, who was an associate of the marine painter James Hamilton. In the early 1860, Thomas Moran traveled to Lake Superior, where he painted and sketched the landscape of the Great Lakes. Back in Philadelphia he sold lithographs of the Great Lakes before setting off on another trip, this time to London, to see the works of the famed British landscape and marine painter JMW Turner. Thomas Moran replications of Thomas Moran's work so impressed the director of the National Gallery that he was given a private room to work in. Upon returning to the U.S., Moran wanted to go west again and paint but had to wait for the right opportunity. That opportunity came in the form of Ferdinand V. Hayden's 1871 Geological Survey Expedition to what is now Yellowstone National Park. Thomas Moran was hired, along with photographer William Henry Jackson, to document the landscape of the region. He could not have chosen a better trip or companion, as the combined talents of Moran and Jackson in documenting the geysers, hot springs, canyons and cliffs of the "Yellow Stone Territory" would be instrumental in persuading Congress to set the land aside as a National Park. It was also the beginning of a fruitful partnership, as Thomas Moran would accompany Jackson again on Major John Wesley Powell's expedition to the west in 1873. It was on this trip that Thomas Moran painted his two most famous works, "The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone" and "The Chasm of the Colorado," both of which were purchased (for a previously unheard-of sum of $10,000 each) by Congress to be displayed in the Capitol in Washington. With the money he was earning from his newfound fame, Thomas Moran again traveled to Europe, this time to Venice, where he purchased a gondola and shipped it back to the United States in order to use it as a model for a variety of Venice scenes he produced after 1890. Thomas Moran moved west permanently in his old age, settling in Santa Barbara, CA and traveling to Acoma and Laguna pueblos to paint the scenery and lifestyle of the native peoples. He died in 1926 of natural causes." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Instagram: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Hans Zimmer - A Way of Life

This song is very similar to "A Small Measure of Peace," but I think it's so good in its own right that I decided to upload it as well. It has a much more tranquil feeling in the beginning.

Jasper Francis Cropsey: A collection of 256 paintings (HD)

Jasper Francis Cropsey: A collection of 256 paintings (HD) Description: "Jasper Cropsey, born in 1823, was a landscape painter and architect. At the age of 13, Cropsey won a diploma from the Mechanics Institute for a house model he constructed. This achievement gained him entry into the architecture office of Joseph Trench, where he worked from 1837-1842. By 1844, Cropesy began to paint full time and spent the next three years in Europe. Cropsey studied landscape painting under Edward Maury and was later associated with the Hudson River School. Cropsey was well known for his brilliant use of color in autumnal landscapes on canvases sometimes reaching nine feet long. In the 1850s, he produced more allegorical and imaginary landscapes with complex themes, which he found could be expressed effectively in serial painting. "The Spirit of War" depicted battle as a mighty medieval fortress among geological peaks that stood dark and turbulent against a vivid sunset. This painting was exhibited with "The Spirit of Peace" in various cities for six years. As an architect, Cropsey designed and superintended the Victorian style 6th Ave elevated stations in New York City. He died in 1900." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Narcisse Virgilio Diaz: A collection of 160 paintings (HD)

Description: "Diaz was born in Bordeaux to Spanish parents. At the age of ten he became an orphan and misfortune dogged his early years.
At fifteen he entered the studios at Sèvres, working in the decoration of porcelain but he later turned to painting. Turkish and Oriental scenes attracted him and he took to painting Eastern figures dressed in richly coloured garments; he also spent much time at Barbizon painting landscapes.
Around 1831 Díaz encountered Théodore Rousseau, for whom he possessed a great veneration, despite the fact that Rousseau was four years his junior. At Fontainebleau Díaz saw Rousseau painting his wonderful forest pictures, and was determined to paint in the same way if possible. He observed his working methods and eventually became his friend.
Díaz exhibited many pictures at the Paris Salon between 1831 and 1859 and was decorated in 1851. After 1871, his works became very fashionable and he became revered as a great Barbizon painter. Diaz also painted some floral subjects. He was a friend of Renoir and his painting style influenced Monticelli and Fantin-Latour, the great still life artist.
Diaz died on 18th November 1876 and in 1881 he posthumously received the Légion d’honneur. His flower paintings can be found in several museums including Grenoble, Marseille, Leeds City Art Gallery, National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh and Glasgow Art gallery."
