Giovanni Giacometti: A collection of 139 paintings (HD) Description: "Giovanni Giacometti was born in Stampa, the Grisans on March 7th , 1868. Encouraged by his teacher, the young Giacometti entered on the artistic career and moved to Munich in 1886 to attend the school of arts and crafts. There Giacometti met Cuno Amiet, who became his close friend and with whom he studied the works of the French impressionists. Supported by his parents, Giacometti moved along with Amiet to Paris in 1888. He went to the spring salon, where he was deeply impressed by some paintings. There, Giacometti met for the first time the works of Gianni Segantini, whom he got to know in person later on. Running short of money, Giacometti was forced to return to Stampa in 1891: a period of loneliness and lack of inspiration. However, the exhibition of his first works in the "Nationale Kunstausstellung" in Bern and the commission for a portrait made a small profit. On the proceeds, Giacometti travelled to Rome and Naples. In 1894 he met Segantini, with whom he formed a deep friendship ever since. Segantini designed in 1897 the idea of a panorama of the Engadine for the Suisse pavilion at the world exhibition in Paris in 1900. Giacometti was supposed to cooperate on the project, but it ran out of money. In 1900 he married and settled in Borgonovo, where his son Alberto was born in 1901, followed by three other children. At this point of time a phase of artistic emancipation began and with the examination of his French examples, Giacometti outgrew Hodler's powerful influence. In 1912 Giacometti was invited to exhibit in Dresden with artists of the "Brücke". In the same year, Giacometti had a large success with an exhibition in the "Kunsthaus" in Zurich, in 1920 his works were exhibited in Bern. Several other international solo-exhibitions followed. The last years, the artist spent in the quiet of Stampa. Giavanni Giacometti is regarded as mediator of modern French and Italian art assets. This way he made a substantial contribution to the renewal of Suisse painting in the 20th century. Along with Cuno Amiet, Giovanni Giacometti belongs to the representatives of typical "Suisse Colourism"." --- 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!
Bruce Crane: A collection of 88 paintings (HD) Description: "Bruce Crane was one of America’s best-known Tonalists, adapting the style of the Barbizon School to the American tradition. Born in New York City, Crane began his painting career by seeking out the instruction of Alexander Wyant, who took him to paint in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains. Wyant’s moody, tonal style had a profound influence on Crane’s work, but he quickly abandoned Wyant’s favored wilderness for more picturesque subjects. Concentrating on open pastures, barnyards, and hayfields, Crane responded to nature’s quiet poetry and delicacy of tone. Crane journeyed to Europe in 1880, spending time in Paris and Grez-Sur-Loing, a pastoral artist’s colony. There, he gained direct exposure to the French Barbizon aesthetic, which introduced an increasingly atmospheric element into his work. When he returned to New York the following year, Crane set out for his favorite painting haunts in the Adirondack woods, Long Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut, creating pastoral landscapes that carried the golden haze of summer or grey light of fall. Crane’s work was admired by critics and patrons throughout the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. His paintings were continually on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Boston Art Club, and the Corcoran Gallery, and he earned numerous honors over the course of his career, winning prizes from the National Academy of Design, the Society of American Artists, the Carnegie Institute, the Salmagundi Club, the Paris Exposition of 1900, and the St. Louis Exposition of 1904. His paintings are now in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and the Wadsworth Athenaeum Museum of Art." --- 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!
Charles-François Daubigny: A collection of 178 paintings (HD) Description: "Charles-François Daubigny, printmaker and painter, was born in Paris on February 15, 1817 to a family of artists . His father was the landscape painter Edme Daubigny. At the age of nine years old, his mother sent him to live with a caretaker in the village of Valmondois in the Val d'Oise region and he returned to Paris when he has fifteen. To assist his family financially he painted trinkets and clock faces for a clockmaker and later worked at the Louvre as a restorer of old-master paintings. Besides what he learned from his father, he was able to acquire a formal art education in the Paris atelier of the painter Pierre Asthasie Théodore Senties. Daubigny was self-sufficient at eighteen years old when he traveled to Italy with fellow artist Henri Mignan. They spent two months exploring the country and upon his return to Paris he reentered Atelier Senties. In 1838, he was accepted in the Salon and by that year he was producing masterful landscape etchings. In the mid 1840s Daubigny began visiting the village of Barbizon where he could paint in "plein-air" the natural beauty of the French countryside. He became a central figure of the Barbizon School, known for its naturalistic paintings. He has been called one of the greatest landscape painters in 19th century France but he was also one of the first great painter-etchers of that century. Charles-Francois Daubigny died in Paris on February 19, 1878." --- 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!
Newell Convers Wyeth: A collection of 80 paintings (HD) Description: "NEWELL CONVERS WYETH (1882-1945) had a huge zest for life. He carried this enthusiasm through a tremendous number of paintings, more than 3,000 illustrations, numerous vast murals, and a great many still life and landscape paintings. Howard Pyle was his teacher and idol. Wyeth emulated Pyle's approach as nearly as possible, painting much of the same kind of subject matter; medieval life, pirates, Americana. To this he added his own dramatic picture concepts and rich, decorative color. Outstanding in this phase of his work were the more than twenty-five books he illustrated for Chrles Scribner's Sons Classic series. The popularity of these books is such that, even after decades, most of them are still in print. After painting in oils for many years, Wyeth turned to the egg tempera medium and also began to paint more for exhibitions. He encouraged an interest in the arts in his children, giving them every opportunity for self expression. His daughters Henriette and Caroline, are both accomplished painters; Ann, a composer, and his son, Andrew, is a famous painter. His grandson, Jamie, is also an excellent painter in his own right. The October, 1965, issue of American Heritage contains an excellent article by Henry C. Pitz about the career of Wyeth and his family. At the time of his tragic death in a railway crossing accident, N. C. Wyeth was one of America's best loved painters." Feel free to subscribe!
Eugene Boudin: A collection of 1163 works (HD) Description: "Louis Eugène Boudin's pint-sized paintings may not enjoy the same reputation as the more ambitious works by his star pupil Claude Monet, but their diminutive dimensions should not diminish their significance. Boudin introduced his fellow Le Havre resident to the pleasures of painting en plein air, which decided the future for talented young Claude. In this respect, and although he was technically a key precursor, we may consider Boudin among the founders of the Impressionist movement. Boudin participated in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874, and also exhibited in the annual Salon that year. He did not participate in any subsequent Impressionist exhibitions, preferring instead to stick to the Salon system. It was only in his last decade of painting that Boudin experimented with the broken brushwork for which Monet and the rest of the Impressionists were known. The son of a sea captain who settled in Le Havre in 1835, Boudin met artists through his father's stationery and framing shop, which also sold artists' supplies. Jean-Baptiste Isabey (1767-1855), Constant Troyon (1810-1865) and Jean-François Millet (1814-1875) would come by and offer the young Boudin advice. However, his favorite art hero at the time was the Dutch landscapist Johan Jongkind (1819-1891). In 1850, Boudin received a scholarship to study art in Paris. In 1859, he met Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) and poet/art critic Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867), who took an interest in his work. That year Boudin submitted his work to the Salon for the first time and was accepted. Beginning in 1861, Boudin divided his time between Paris during the winter and the Normandy coast during the summer. His small canvases of tourists on the beach received respectable attention and he often sold these quickly painted compositions to the people who had been captured so effectively. Boudin loved to travel and set out for Brittany, Bordeaux, Belgium, Holland and Venice quite often. In 1889 he won a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle and in 1891 he became a knight of the Légion d'honneur. Late in life Boudin moved to the south of France, but as his health deteriorated he chose to return to Normandy to die in the region that launched his career as one of the maverick plein-air painters of his era." --- 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!
Abraham Bloemaert (1564-1651) A collection of paintings & drawings 4K Ultra HD Silent Slideshow
A Dutch painter and printmaker in etching and engraving. He was one of the "Haarlem Mannerists" from about 1585, but in the new century altered his style to fit new Baroque trends. He mostly painted history subjects and some landscapes. He was an important teacher, who trained most of the Utrecht Caravaggisti, at least for a period
Bloemaert was born in Gorinchem, Habsburg Netherlands, the son of the architect Cornelis Bloemaert I, who moved his family to Utrecht in 1575, where Abraham was first a pupil of Gerrit Splinter (pupil of Frans Floris) and of Joos de Beer.
From the age of 15 or 16, he then spent three years in Paris from 1581–1583, studying six weeks under a Jehan Bassot (possibly Jean Cousin the Younger) and then under a Maistre Herry.
While in the School of Fontainebleau he received further training from his fellow countryman Hieronymus Francken.
He returned to Utrecht in 1583, just before the French Wars of Religion began, which destroyed much of the work at the Chateau of Fontainebleau.
When his father was appointed city architect (Stads-bouwmeester) in Amsterdam 1591 he accompanied him there, and on his father's death in 1593 returned finally to Utrecht, where he set up a workshop and in 1594 became dean ("deken") of the "zadelaarsgilde", as from 1367 the painters were included in the saddlemaker's guild, with no Guild of St. Luke of their own.
In 1611, along with the two other leading Utrecht painters, Joachim Wtewael and Paulus Moreelse, he was one of the founders of the Utrecht Guild of Saint Luke (St Lucas-gilde) a new Utrecht painters' guild, and became its deken in 1618.
Many of Bloemaert's paintings were commissioned by Utrecht's clandestine Catholic churches. He died in Utrecht.
Accorgint to the Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition, "he excelled more as a colourist than as a draughtsman, was extremely productive, and painted and etched historical and allegorical pictures, landscapes, still-life, animal pictures and flower pieces."
In the first decade of the seventeenth-century, Bloemaert began formulating his landscape paintings to include picturesque ruined cottages and other pastoral elements. In these works, the religious or mythological figures play a subordinate role. Country life was to remain Bloemaert's favourite subject, which he depicted with increasing naturalism. He drew motifs such as peasant cottages, dovecotes and trees from life and then on his return to the studio worked them up into complex imaginary scenes.
Among his many pupils were his four sons, Hendrick, Frederick, Cornelis, and Adriaan (all of whom achieved considerable reputation as painters or engravers). The RKD also lists Jan Aerntsz de Hel, Abraham Jacobsz van Almeloveen, Cornelius de Beer, Nicolaes van Bercheyck, Jan van Bijlert, the two Boths, the two Honthorsts, Leonaert Bramer, Bartholomeus Breenbergh, Hendrick ter Brugghen, Jacob Gerritsz Cuyp, Willem van Drielenburg, Wybrand de Geest, Nicolaus Knüpfer, Hendrik Munnicks, Frederick Pithan, Cornelis van Poelenburch, Henrik Schook, Anthoni Ambrosius Schouten, Robert Jansz Splinter, Matthias Stom, Herman van Swanevelt, Dirck Voorst, Quintijnus de Waerdt, Jan Baptist Weenix, and Peter Petersz van Zanen
