Giovanni Boldini: A collection of 412 works (HD) *UPDATE

Giovanni Boldini: A collection of 412 works (HD) *UPDATE (added over 100 new artworks than previous video) Description: "Giovanni Boldini (1842–1931) began his artistic education at a very young age, learning primarily from his father Antonio, who was a painter and restorer of some repute in Ferrara, Italy. The young Boldini did not pursue formal academic training, however, and instead, after inheriting a considerable sum of money from his great-uncle, moved to Florence in early 1864. At the time, Florence was home to a community of young artists, with whom Boldini rapidly formed friendships and who thus provided artistic inspiration and also probably helped him find subjects to paint. Boldini made his first trip to Paris in May 1867, writing upon his return that "My only thought as long as I stay here will be how I can get to Paris and set myself up there." In October 1871, he achieved that goal, and quickly established his Parisian career. Over the next twenty years Boldini explored many different subjects: small genre scenes as well as broad city views, brilliant suburban landscapes, and informal depictions of musicians, performers, and café-goers. Many of these same subjects appeared in the works of a group of avant-garde artists, the Impressionists, who came to prominence in the same period. While Boldini's later work evolved toward an almost exclusive focus on depictions of wealthy and famous society figures, his earlier career reveals the remarkable variety of works he made as he developed his unique style in the process of becoming one of the most celebrated artists of the time. By the end of the nineteenth century, Boldini had established his reputation as the epitome of the Belle Époque portraitist, with a glittering clientele who sought out his studio to be portrayed by the "Parisian from Italy."" --- BOOKS about Giovanni Boldini: [1] GIOVANNI BOLDINI IN IMPRESSIONIST PARIS by Clark Art Institute --- 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!

EL ANDAR DE LA FE Por Dr. Charles Stanley

Mariano Fortuny

I have been meaning to get this done for ages. Full of mispronunciations and I think I may have used the word "so" about 1,000 times. Still, the world needs more Fortuny, and this is my little contribution.

Mariano Fortuny y Marsal: A collection of 106 paintings (HD) *UPDATE
(added almost 100 new artworks than previous video)

Description: "Although born and trained in Spain, Mariano Fortuny spent most of his relatively brief career in Italy, and indeed is often defined as an Italian artist as much as a Spaniard. Orphaned as a young child, he was raised by his grandfather. Fortuny studied painting in Barcelona before travelling to Rome at the age of twenty, having won a pension from the Catalan city. Following visits to Morocco in 1860 and 1862 he began painting Orientalist subjects. Fascinated by the Arab world, he travelled extensively in southern Spain and the Maghreb, collecting Persian carpets, Hispano-Moresque pottery, Islamic metalwork, arms and armour, fabrics and textiles. Apart from Orientalist works, he painted historical genre subjects and scenes of 18th century courtly life – a style which proved so commercially popular that it became widely known as ‘Fortunismo’ – as well as landscapes. He was also a gifted watercolourist, draughtsman and etcher.

Fortuny lived and worked mainly in Rome, although he spent some time in Paris, where his paintings were sold for huge prices by the art dealer Adolphe Goupil, and also lived for two years in Granada. It was in Rome that Fortuny died suddenly, possibly of malaria, in November 1874, at the age of just thirty-six. The largest single collection of works by this Catalan artist, amounting to twenty-five paintings, fifty-two watercolours, sixty prints and 1,678 drawings, is in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in Barcelona.

Much admired for their rich colour and bravura brushwork, Fortuny’s paintings and watercolours were to be highly influential on the later generation of French and Italian painters of Orientalist subjects. As the French painter Henri Regnault said of Fortuny: ‘He is master to us all. If you could only see the two or three pictures he’s completing at the moment and the watercolours that he’s done recently. It makes me feel disgusted with my own…oh Fortuny, you give me sleepless nights!’ Fortuny’s skill as a watercolourist was noted from early in his career, and, as his wife’s uncle Pedro de Madrazo was later to recall, the artist used the medium of watercolour in a manner that was ‘totally unusual and free, energetic, at odds with all convention and routine.’ His watercolours were admired by many of his contemporaries, including Regnault and the critic Théophile Gautier, and were avidly acquired by collectors. As the artist himself wrote in 1866 to his friend Tomàs Moragas, ‘Goupil, the richest dealer in Paris, has ordered 4,000 dr. [duros] worth of small paintings from me, he’s buying all he watercolours I can do at 20 dr. [duros] a throw.’ Fortuny is said to have worked on his watercolours every evening, after painting in his studio during the day, and would often present them as gifts to friends and relatives."
