Daniel Garber: A collection of 84 paintings (HD) Description: "Indiana born Daniel Garber's beautiful landscapes may be considered the most distinctive work of the Pennsylvania Impressionists at the turn of the century. Garber was born on April 11, 1880, in Manchester, Indiana, and his pursuit of a career as a professional artist began at age 16. From 1897 to 1898, he studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. He moved to Philadelphia in 1897 and enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1899, and during the summers of 1899 and 1900 also took classes in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, at the Darby School of Painting, studying under Hugh Breckenridge and Thomas Anshutz. He opened a studio in Philadelphia in 1901, working as a portraitist and commercial artist. In 1905, he won a Pennsylvania Academy award, The Cresson Traveling Scholarship, which allowed him to go to Italy, England and France for two years. As a result, the works of the French Impressionists, particularly those of Camille Pissarro and Claude Monet, inspired him. The European masters lent their influence, and he developed a signature style representing sunlight using a broad spectrum of pastel and bright colors, combining fantasy and realism. He returned to Lumberville, Pennsylvania, in 1907, and his mature works done in that area are perhaps some of his best. He painted in a straightforward, luminous manner, depicting the great quarries across the river in Byram, New Jersey, as well as in a more decorative, high-key mode, rendering foliage and branch patterns, as in Wilderness (1912, oil on canvas). This painting includes an element of fantasy that had begun to characterize much of the late Impressionist work in America. During the period 1908 and 1924, Garber included skillfully painted figures in most of his paintings, unlike many of his contemporaries. To a smaller extent Garber was a portraitist, but his landscapes of the woods and quarries of Bucks County, Pennsylvania gained him his greatest notoriety. His talents as a teacher were also evident, and he became the outstanding teacher among the group living at New Hope. He was a member of the faculty at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women in 1904, and then began in 1909 began a career of teaching at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts that lasted forty-one years. Not far from the Delaware River in Lumberville, Bucks County, Garber settled on a tranquil farm in 1907, and that provided him the inspiration for many of his works. Retiring in 1950, Garber was one of the Academy's most admired and respected teachers. Garber's paintings are represented in the collections of many museums across the United States, including the Allentown Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The nearly thirty awards that have been bestowed upon Garber are too numerous to list, however some include the National Academy of Designs Hallgarten Prize in 1909, and the 1924 Bronze Medal from the Carnegie Institute. Perhaps his most coveted was received in 1915, when he was awarded a Gold Medal from the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. Daniel Garber died on his farm, Cuttalossa, on July 5, 1958." --- MUSIC: Kevin MacLeod - Meditation Impromptu 03 Meditation Impromptu 03 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=USUAN1100161 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 LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: https://goo.gl/hri4HE --- Thank you so much for your support!
Theodore Robinson: A collection of 202 paintings (HD) Description: "Long considered the first American impressionist, Theodore Robinson was born in Irasburg, Vermont, but spent most of his childhood in the rural Midwest, predominantly Wisconsin. Robinson’s formal art education began at the Art Institute of Chicago (1869–1870) and continued at the National Academy of Design in New York (1874–1876), where he was one of the founders of the Art Students League. In 1876 he journeyed to Paris and entered the atelier of the academician Carolus-Duran but later moved to the École des Beaux-Arts to study with Jean-Léon Gérôme. In the fall of 1879, Robinson moved to Venice; here he was befriended by American expatriate artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler, who had a great influence on him. Robinson returned to the United States in December of that year and began to work as a mural painter for public and private buildings in New York and Boston. By spring 1884 Robinson had earned enough money to return to France. With Paris as his home base, Robinson was able to travel to surrounding artistic sites including Barbizon and Dieppe, and to go to Holland. In 1887 he began his sojourns in Giverny, a village on the Seine where Claude Monet had established his home and studio, and he returned to that village every spring and summer for the next five years. Although Monet generally avoided the many foreign artists who came to Giverny, he and Robinson became close friends. Like Monet, Robinson painted figure compositions and landscapes and also explored the concept of sequential images in a series of panoramic views of Giverny. During his Giverny period, Robinson continued to make trips back to New York, where he maintained friendships with Twachtman and Weir, and through them served as a conduit for the dissemination of Impressionist precepts in the United States. Duncan Phillips proclaimed that Robinson’s style “used the broken tones of Monet but refined the method and made it subtle and sensuous.” To supplement his income, Robinson began teaching during the summers in Napanoch, New York, and later in a succession of teaching positions in New Jersey. In February 1895 Macbeth Gallery in New York gave him his first solo exhibition. Robinson died the next year during an acute asthma attack, an illness that had plagued him his entire life. Five of his paintings were lent posthumously to the 1913 Amory Show, in which he and Twachtman represented American impressionism." --- 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 LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: https://goo.gl/hri4HE --- 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."
