Francis Cadell: A collection of 184 works (HD)

Francis Cadell: A collection of 184 works (HD) Description: "Francis Cadell was born in Edinburgh, the son of Francis Cadell FRCSE, a surgeon His childhood home was at 22 Ainslie Place on Edinburgh's prestigious Moray Estate, and was educated at the Edinburgh Academy. His sister was Jean Cadell a well-known actress. From the age of 16 he studied in Paris at the Académie Julian, where he was in contact with the French avant-garde of the day. While in France, his exposure to work by the early Fauvists, and in particular Matisse, proved to be his most lasting influence. After his return to Scotland, he was a regular exhibitor in Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as in London. Cadell was a left-handed painter. While a student, the President of the Royal Scottish Academy tried to stop him painting with his left hand because 'No artist ever became great who did so.' Cadell swiftly replied 'Sir and did not the great Michelangelo paint with his left hand?' The President did not respond and left the room quickly. A fellow student asked Cadell how he had known that Michelangelo was left-handed. Cadell confessed 'I didn't know but nor did the president.' Cadell spent much of his adult life in Scotland and had little direct contact with many of the new ideas that were being developed abroad. He therefore tended to use subjects and environments that were close at hand – landscapes, fashionable Edinburgh New Town house interiors, still life and figures in both oil and watercolour. He is particularly noted for his portraits of glamorous women whom he painted in a loose, impressionistic manner, depicting his subject with vibrant waves of colour. He enjoyed the landscape of Iona enormously, which he first visited in 1912 and features prominently in his work. During the 1920s he spent several summers with Samuel Peploe, another Scottish Colourist, on painting trips to Iona, and was also friends with the Scottish architect Reginald Fairlie. During World War I he served in the 9th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and the 9th Royal Scots regiments. He lived at 6 and 22 Ainslie Place, Edinburgh from 1920-1932. During this time he befriended Reginald Fairlie who lived at 7 Ainslie Place and they remained friends thereafter. He then lived at 30 Regent Terrace from 1932-1935 where he found it more and more difficult to sell his paintings because of the economic climate. He finally moved to 4 Warriston Crescent where he died in poverty on 6 December 1937. Two of his paintings were offered for over £500,000 in 2009. Cadell's Estate is represented by Portland Gallery, London." --- 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! #LearnFromMasters #ScottishPainter #FrancisCadell #OnlineArtGallery #CollectionOfPaintings #ArtHistory #TASCHEN

John Duncan Fergusson: A collection of 223 works (HD)

John Duncan Fergusson: A collection of 223 works (HD) Description: "John Duncan Fergusson, lived from 9 March 1874 to 30 January 1961. He was one of the few British artists to participate in the Impressionist revolution in art that took place in Paris in the years before the First World War. He was a key member of the movement known as the Scottish Colourists, and a large collection of his work is on view in the Fergusson Gallery in Perth. The wider picture in Scotland at the time is set out in our Historical Timeline. Fergusson was born at 7 Crown Street, Leith, and was the oldest of four children. Both his parents were from Pitlochry, and Fergusson always regarded Highland Perthshire as his spiritual home. After attending the Royal High School, Fergusson went on to study medicine at Edinburgh University as a step towards an ambition of becoming a naval surgeon. He left after only a few months, however, instead enrolling at the Trustees Academy in Edinburgh to train as an artist. Within a few more months he had decided that the approach taken at the Academy was not for him, and he left in order to train himself as an artist. In the 1890s Fergusson travelled in Spain and Morocco before deciding that France was the place to be. Between 1895 and 1907 he made repeated visits from his home in Edinburgh to France, working alongside many of the key artists of the day. In 1907 he rented a studio in Paris and settled there full time. Outgoing and enthusiastic, Fergusson fitted perfectly into the artistic community that was so active on the Left Bank of the River Seine at the time, meeting and swapping ideas with artists like Picasso, Matisse and Derain. Within a fairly short time, Fergusson had become a fixture on the Paris art scene, and he was a leading member of an active community of expatriate painters living in the city. In 1913 Fergusson met a 22-year old English dancer, Margaret Morris, who was touring in Paris with her own dance company. The two fell in love and were to become lifelong companions. Later in the year, Fergusson left Paris to settle on the French Mediterranean coast, where Margaret Morris was a regular visitor between managing her own commitments in London. When war erupted in August 1914, Fergusson moved to London to be with Margaret Morris. His only notable work during the war was a series of paintings of the naval dockyard in Portsmouth, commissioned by the Government. Fergusson produced a series of Scottish landscapes after a visit in 1922, but he spent most of the 1920s in London working with the dancers of Margaret's dance company. During this time he became a friend of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. In 1929 John Duncan Fergusson and Margaret Morris moved to Paris, where once more he fitted perfectly into an active artistic community. Meantime he had become a key member of a group of Scottish painters who were later to become known as the Scottish Colourists. With the outbreak of another war in 1939, Fergusson once more returned to Britain with Margaret Morris, this time settling in Glasgow. Margaret Morris established the Celtic Ballet, and the two collaborated in the setting up of the New Art Club, which became a focus for artistic development amongst many Scottish painters. They remained in Glasgow after the war, though each year the two would spend time in France where Margaret Morris ran summer dance schools. In 1950 Fergusson was awarded an honourary degree by Glasgow University. John Duncan Fergusson died in 1961 at the age of 86. He had been one of the last survivors of the era of the Impressionists in Paris in the years before the First World War, and his impact on the development of art in Scotland, and beyond, was dramatic, wide ranging and enduring. After Fergusson's death, Margaret Morris established the JD Fergusson Art Foundation to look after a large collection of his work. Margaret Morris died in 1980, but the Foundation lived on, with the primary aim of finding a permanent home for the collection. On 6 March 1992 the Fergusson Gallery opened in Perth, housed in a converted waterworks. A major renovation between 2003 and 2005 has ensured that the Fergusson Gallery will continue to make Fergusson's work available to the widest possible audience for the foreseeable future." --- 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! #LearnFromMasters #ScottishPainter #ImpressionistMovement #OnlineArtGallery #CollectionOfPaintings #ArtHistory #JohnDuncanFergusson #TASCHEN

Louis Anquetin: A collection of 82 works (HD)

Louis Anquetin: A collection of 82 works (HD) Description: "Louis Anquetin was regarded as the most promising artist of the 19th century and he was a major influence on other artists of his time and later generations. In Paris, he was a part of a group of artists that included stalwarts like Vincent van Gough, Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Emile Bernard and George Seurat. His early work was heavily influenced by ‘Impressionism’ but later, along with Bernard, developed a new method of painting called ‘Cloisonnisme’ that quickly gained him the reputation of an innovator in the Paris art scene. Anquetin never stayed put with any style and throughout his career, he experimented with different styles. This may partly be due to his innovative nature and restless spirit. During his later life, he was largely out of the art scene and after his death, he was nearly forgotten. However, in recent years his works have seen an uprise in interest, particularly his paintings of the mysterious women of the night, a subject that he worked on when he was in Rome. You can know more on this brilliant artist in the biography given below." --- 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!

Emily Carr: A collection of 196 works (HD)

Description: "Canadian Artist and Writer: Emily Carr studied in San Francisco in 1889-95, and in 1899 she travelled to England, where she was involved with the St. Ives group and with Hubert von Herkomer's private school.

She lived in France in 1910 where the work of the Fauves influenced the colourism of her work and she came into contact with Frances Hodgkins. Discouraged by her lack of artistic success, she returned to Victoria where she came close to giving up art altogether.

However, her contact with the Group of Seven in 1930 resurrected her interest in art, and throughout the 1930s she specialized in scenes from the lives and rituals of Native Americans. She also showed her awareness of Canadian native culture through a number of works representing the British Columbian rainforest. She lived among the native Americans to research her subjects. Many of her Expressionistic paintings represent totem poles and other artefacts of Indian culture."
