Tintoretto: A collection of 226 paintings (HD) Description: "Tintoretto was an artist of immense output and dramatic style who emerged from the Venetian School of painting. He was one of the best known Venetian painters next to Titian (1485 – 1576), having very briefly trained under the master. Tintoretto had high ambitions, and adorned an inscription in his studio that said, “Michelangelo’s design and Titian’s Color.” In this he sought to produce the brilliant compositional methods of Michelangelo, while using the bold coloring of Titian; a goal of the highest order for Renaissance painting. He is often said to herald a Baroque style of painting. Tintoretto was born Jacopo Comin and called Jacopo Robusti in youth, but artistically he was often called Il Furioso, for the fury in which in painted. He may have trained with Titan in 1553, but it is said the master sent him home after a brief ten days because of his obvious talents. He may have also trained with the Venetian painters, Bonifacio Veronese (1487 – 1557), Paris Bordone (1500 – 1571), and worked closely with, thus influenced by, Andrea Meldolla, called Il Schiavone (1510 – 1563). Though throughout all of this, Tintoretto developed a highly independent style and worked reclusively, rarely sharing his methods. In order to bring great detail and spatial perspective to his work, Tintoretto molded wax models and experimented with their appearance in light. This gave his work an exaggerated feel in light and movement, achieving something much different from his goal of design and color. Kren and Marx of the Web Gallery of Art remark, “his drawings, unlike Michelangelo’s detailed life studies, are brilliant, rapid notations, bristling with energy and his colour is more sombre and mystical than Titian’s.” While producing much work early on, the three works that gave Tintoretto acclaim were painted for the Scuola Grande di San Marco in 1548. The works depicting Saint Mark, Finding the body of Saint Mark in Alexandria and Saint Mark’s Body Brought to Venice, are exemplary of the artist’s dramatic use of perspective and space. The third piece, The Miracle of Saint Mark Freeing the Slave, shows his skillful use of fore-shortening and bold contrasts between light and shading. This led Tintoretto to the painting of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice, where he completed an incredible breadth of work, off and on between 1564 up until his death in 1594. A short list of notable works Tintoretto painted here include the Crucifixion, Annunciation, St. Roch presented to the Pope, St. Roch taken to Prison, The Pool of Bethesda, St. Roch curing the plague victims, St. Roch comforted by an Angel, St. Roch in Solitude, and St. Roch healing the Animals, but the many masterful works of his in the church are too many to list here. Among other artists that Tintoretto worked with in the church were Paolo Veronese (1528 – 1588), and together with Titian’s past work, they became know as the essence of the Venetian School of painting. Tintoretto also painted his grandest single piece, Paradise, a massive painting noted as the largest ever created on canvas. He also produced a good amount of portrait pieces. Of his work now in the Uffizi Gallery is Portrait of a Man, (1546), Leda and the Swan, Christ and the Samaritan Woman at the Well, The Samaritan Woman, Portrait of a Venetian Admiral, Portrait of a Man with a Red Beard, Portrait of Jacopo Sansovino, and Saint Augustine Heals the Cripples, (attributed to Domenico Robusti, called Tintoretto)." --- 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!

Francis Goya, Historia De Un Amor, Full Album
Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez baptised June 6, 1599 -- August 6, 1660) was a Spanish painter who was the leading artist in the court of King Philip IV and one of the most important painters of the Spanish Golden Age. He was an individualistic artist of the contemporary Baroque period, important as a portrait artist. In addition to numerous renditions of scenes of historical and cultural significance, he painted scores of portraits of the Spanish royal family, other notable European figures, and commoners, culminating in the production of his masterpiece Las Meninas (1656).
Francisco de Goya: A collection of 289 paintings (HD) *Repost
Description: "Francisco de Goya (30 March 1746 – 16 April 1828) was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker. He is considered the most important Spanish artist of late 18th and early 19th centuries and throughout his long career was a commentator and chronicler of his era. Immensely successful in his lifetime, Goya is often referred to as both the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns.
He was born to a modest family in 1746 in the village of Fuendetodos in Aragon. He studied painting from age 14 under José Luzán y Martinez and moved to Madrid to study with Anton Raphael Mengs. He married Josefa Bayeu in 1775; the couple's life together was characterised by an almost constant series of pregnancies and miscarriages. He became a court painter to the Spanish Crown in 1786 and the early portion of his career is marked by portraits commissioned by the Spanish aristocracy and royalty, as well as the Rococo styletapestry cartoons designed for the royal palace.
Goya was a guarded man and although letters and writings survive, we know comparatively little about his thoughts. He suffered a severe and undiagnosed illness in 1793 which left him completely deaf. After 1793 his work became progressively darker and pessimistic. His later easel and mural paintings, prints and drawings appear to reflect a bleak outlook on personal, social and political levels, and contrast with his social climbing. He was appointed Director of the Royal Academy in 1795, the year Manuel Godoy made an unfavorable treaty with France. In 1799 Goya became Primer Pintor de Càmara, the then highest rank for a Spanish court painter. In the late 1790s, commissioned by Godoy, he completed his La maja desnuda, a remarkably daring nude for the time and clearly indebted to Diego Velázquez. In 1801 he painted Charles IV of Spain and His Family. In 1807 Napoleon led the French army into Spain.
He remained in Madrid during the Peninsular War, which seems to have affected him deeply. Although he did not vocalise his thoughts in public, they can be inferred from his "Disasters of War" series of prints (although published 35 years after his death) and his 1814 paintings The Second of May 1808 and The Third of May 1808. Other works from his mid period include the "Caprichos" and Los Disparates etching series, and a wide variety of paintings concerned with insanity, mental asylums, witches, fantastical creatures and religious and political corruption, all of which suggest that he feared for both his country's fate and his own mental and physical health. His output culminates with the so-called "Black Paintings" of 1819-1823, applied on oil on the plaster walls of his house the "Quinta del Sordo" (house of the deaf man) where, disillusioned by domestic political and social developments he lived in near isolation. Goya eventually abandoned Spain in 1824 to retire to the French city of Bordeaux, accompanied by his much younger maid and companion, Leocadia Weiss, who may or may not have been his lover. There he completed his "La Tauromaquia" series and a number of canvases. Following a stroke which left him paralysed on his right side, and suffering failing eyesight and poor access to painting materials, he died and was buried on 16 April 1828 aged 82. His body was later re-interred in Spain."
