Pablo Picasso: A collection of 855 works (HD)

Pablo Picasso: A collection of 855 works (HD) Description: "Pablo Picasso was the most dominant and influential artist of the first half of the twentieth century. Associated most of all with pioneering Cubism, alongside Georges Braque, he also invented collage and made major contributions to Symbolism and Surrealism. He saw himself above all as a painter, yet his sculpture was greatly influential, and he also explored areas as diverse as printmaking and ceramics. Finally, he was a famously charismatic personality; his many relationships with women not only filtered into his art but also may have directed its course, and his behavior has come to embody that of the bohemian modern artist in the popular imagination. It was a confluence of influences - from Paul Cézanne and Henri Rousseau, to archaic and tribal art - that encouraged Picasso to lend his figures more structure and ultimately set him on the path towards Cubism, in which he deconstructed the conventions of perspective that had dominated painting since the Renaissance. These innovations would have far-reaching consequences for practically all of modern art, revolutionizing attitudes to the depiction of form in space. Picasso's immersion in Cubism also eventually led him to the invention of collage, in which he abandoned the idea of the picture as a window on objects in the world, and began to conceive of it merely as an arrangement of signs that used different, sometimes metaphorical means, to refer to those objects. This too would prove hugely influential for decades to come. Picasso had an eclectic attitude to style, and although, at any one time, his work was usually characterized by a single dominant approach, he often moved interchangeably between different styles - sometimes even in the same artwork. His encounter with Surrealism, although never transforming his work entirely, encouraged not only the soft forms and tender eroticism of portraits of his mistress Marie-Therese Walter, but also the starkly angular imagery of Guernica (1937), the century's most famous anti-war painting. Picasso was always eager to place himself in history, and some of his greatest works, such as Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907), refer to a wealth of past precedents - even while overturning them. As he matured he became only more conscious of assuring his legacy, and his late work is characterized by a frank dialogue with Old Masters such as Ingres, Velazquez, Goya, and Rembrandt." --- SUBSCRIBE: Facebook: Google+: Contact: --- Thanks for all support!

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: Facebook: Google+: Contact: SUPPORT MY WORK AT: LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: --- Thank you so much for your support! #LearnFromMasters #ScottishPainter #ImpressionistMovement #OnlineArtGallery #CollectionOfPaintings #ArtHistory #JohnDuncanFergusson #TASCHEN

Gustav Klimt: A collection of 164 paintings (HD) *UPDATE
(added over 50 new artworks than previous video)

Description: "An influential painter and the founder of the Vienna Secession art movement, Gustav Klimt dominated the art scene in the 19th century Austria. Till date, his art works demand high respect and are widely revered in the art circles. Klimt chose to go off the beaten track of conventional and traditional academic art and adopted the new trend in European modern art. He is known for his decorative art, a genre that most of his contemporaries chose not to adopt. He was the most renowned proponent of Art Nouveau, a genre of art that was inspired by natural forms and structures. One of the most celebrated artists of the 19thcentury, Klimt’s paintings portrayed women in sensual tones. It was the presence of sensual appeal in his paintings that is accountable for his being enlisted in the list of most controversial artists of his time. Some of best known paintings include, ‘Old Burgtheater in Vienna’, ‘The Kiss’ ‘Portrait of Baroness Elisabeth Bachofen-Echt’ and ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’."
