Theodore Robinson: A collection of 202 paintings (HD)

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: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: (By donating at least 50$ you'll have acces to all artworks (JPEG files) collection already posted on this channel!)

Correggio: A collection of 172 works (HD)

Correggio: A collection of 172 works (HD) Description: "Born in 1489, Antonio Allegri da Correggio was an Italian artist associated with the High Renaissance. His work is among the most famous of the sixteenth century. His compositions were known for their dramatic subject matter and vigor. His works have also been notable for their sensuality. Regarded as a revolutionary artist of whom little is known, he influenced subsequent generations of artists. His most famous works include The Adoration of the Magi (1516-1518), The Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine (1526-1527), and Leda with the Swan (1531-1532). Born in Correggio, Italy, the artist is primarily known by his birthplace. Scholars believe his father was a merchant, but very little is known of Correggio’s training except that he was the apprentice of Francesco Bianchi Ferrara of Modena. Early in his career Correggio resided in his hometown. One of his earliest paintings is the Adoration of the Child with St. Elizabeth and John (c.1508). He also painted several tondos for the Mantua Church of Sant’Andrea which he completed in 1514. With his celebrity rising, he was commissioned to paint the Madonna altarpiece for the St. Francis Monastery near the town of Correggio. In 1516 Correggio left for Parma where he would spend most of his career. There he became associated with the Mannerist style, an intellectual movement of the high Renaissance known for its artificial approaches to art which was a reaction to the naturalism of artists like Michelangelo and Raphael. A few years later, in 1519, he married Girolama Francesca di Braghetis. She, too, was from Correggio. One of their sons, Pomponio Allegri, became a painter, though he did not achieve the fame of his father. During his early career in Parma, Correggio painted Madonna and Child with the Young Saint John (1516) and Madonna of Albinea (1514) which is lost today. Correggio became known for his innovative interior designs as evidenced by his major commission painting in the Camera di San Paolo of the convent of St. Paul. By 1520 he began to paint the domes for the Church of San Giovanni Evangelista and the Cathedral of Parma. The Parma Cathedral features Correggio’s Assumption of the Virgin (1526-1530) which became one of his masterpieces and most influential works. While Correggio typically painted religious scenes, he is also famous for his set of Loves of Jupiter, mythological paintings that include such works as Leda with the Swan and Venus and Cupid with a Satyr (c.1528). Many of Correggio’s works (which are not attached to cathedrals) are collected by the world’s most prestigious museums." --- MUSIC: Kevin MacLeod - Mesmerize Mesmerize 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!

Benjamin Williams Leader: A collection of 237 paintings (HD)

Benjamin Williams Leader: A collection of 237 paintings (HD) Description: "Benjamin Williams Leader father was a friend of John Constable, and a good amateur artist, so he and Benjamin would often go on sketching trips on the banks of the River Severn. Leader worked at his father's office as a draftsman and at night studied art at the Worcester School of Design when he was not working or studying, he would in his leisure time do 'en Plein air' landscape oil painting. In 1854, at 23 years old, he became a student at the Royal Academy Schools in London, and, in his first year, had a painting accepted for exhibition, "Cottage children blowing bubbles", which was sold to an American buyer for £50, (equal to US$7,000 today). Benjamin Williams Leader did not complete his course of studies at the Royal Academy, nor did he have to, because his landscape oil paintings were in great demand by affluent purchasers and within only a few years of his first sale, he achieved great commercial success. In 1857 he changed his name from Benjamin Leader Williams to Benjamin Williams Leader to separate himself from the many other painters with the surname Williams. In autumn of that year he traveled to Scotland and painted A Quiet Pool in Glen Falloch, it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1859 and quickly sold, such was the demand that much of his best work now went to private galleries and was never exhibited. For the following ten years, Leader divided his painting time between the Severn Valley, Worcestershire, and Wales. At the Royal Academy exhibit in 1881, February Fill Dyke was shown to great acclaim and Leader was made an associate in 1883, and became a Royal Academician in 1898. In 1891, his brother, Edward Leader Williams, a civil engineer who was knighted for his work for designing the Manchester Ship Canal, which was to become the theme of Leader's largest painting, Manchester Ship Canal: The Making of Eastham Dock. Benjamin Williams Leader's early works were influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, with their attention to fine detail and emphasis on painting from nature "en Plein air", the inspiration for these early works was the wide open countryside around Worcester. In his later years, he adopted a looser more Impressionistic style, rather than being an exact copy of nature and this turned out to be more popular. He exhibited in every summer exhibition at the Academy until 1922, he was 91 years old." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Jean-Georges Beraud: A collection of 215 works (HD) *UPDATE

Jean-Georges Béraud: A collection of 215 works (HD) *UPDATE (added over 50 new artworks than previous video) Description: "Jean Béraud was born in St Petersburg in 1849, the son of a French sculptor, Jean Béraud, who had probably moved to the city to work on the cathedral of St Isaac. His mother took the family to Paris after her husband’s death in 1853. Jean, like his friend Marcel Proust, was educated at the Lycée Bonaparte (today the Lycée Condorcet). He briefly studied law at the University of Paris and in 1870-71 served in the Garde Nationale during the Siege of Paris. Abandoning law for art, in 1872-3 he studied in the studio of the portrait painter Léon Bonnat. Béraud exhibited two portraits at the Salon in 1873, showing there until 1889. Béraud’s Salon exhibit of 1876, After the funeral (private collection), established his reputation as a chronicler of Parisian life in paintings which combine an Impressionistic freedom of brushwork with acute and witty observation of fashions, physiognomies, class and personalities in the ordered chaos of the teeming modern city. Once declaring ‘I find everything but Paris wearisome’, Béraud painted both high life and low life, from aristocratic salons and racing at Auteil to Insoumises in the lock-up, 1886 (private collection), which depicts prostitutes rounded up by the police in the cold light of dawn. A brilliant draughtsman and illustrator, Béraud sketched his Parisians from the windows of horse-drawn cabs. Béraud’s work was greeted with great enthusiasm and he was welcomed into Parisian society, receiving commissions for portraits from famous figures such as the Prince d’Orléans and Prince Troubetskoy. Urbane and exquisitely dressed, he frequented the salons of the Countesses Potocka, de Noailles and d’Agoult, and in 1897 was Proust’s Second in a duel. Béraud, who never married, was also happy in theatrical company: his closest friend was the celebrated actor Coquelin the Elder. Jean Béraud was a founding member and Vice President of the Sociéte Nationale des Beaux-arts, where he exhibited between 1910 and 1929. He was awarded a gold medal from the Society of French Artists in 1889 and a gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in 1889. In 1887 he was made a Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur. In 1891 Béraud caused a scandal by exhibiting at the Salon Mary Magdalene visiting the Pharisee (Musée d’Orsay, Paris), which transposed the Biblical story into a contemporary setting and shone a harsh light on modern morals. Several paintings of subsequent decades show the inhabitants of modern Paris taking part in the events of the Bible, such as the Mocking of Christ, or allude to the gap between rich and poor, such as The insurgence, 1896 (private collection). Béraud’s satires were coldly received, although he remained an important figure in the artistic life of Paris. Following his death in 1935, the Musée Carnavalet held a retrospective of his work. The work of Jean Béraud is represented in the Musée du Louvre, Paris; the Musée d’Orsay, Paris; the National Gallery, London; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC and the Pushkin Museum, Moscow." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support!

Anto Carte: A collection of 47 works (HD)

Description: "Antoine “Anto” Carte was a Belgian figurative painter. Sometimes compared to his friend and peer, the Flemish artist Gustave van de Woestyne, Carte’s Neo-Realist paintings of farmers and miners are dark and expressive. He employs the figure symbolically, both highlighting the struggles of the working class and conveying fantastical narratives. Born on December 8, 1886 in Mons, Belgium, Carte apprenticed to the studio of painter Frantz Depooter for 14 years, and received his formal training at the Academy of Mons and Brussels. He began calling himself Anto Carte and in 1928 helped to form the Expressionist painting group Nervia. He taught at the Higher Institute of Decorative Arts of La Cambre and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, both in Brussels. Carte died in Ixelles, Belgium on Febrary 15, 1954."
