This Sculptor tried again and again to be accepted into his area Art School. A friend of Rodin later claimed to have found a sculpture in a junk store. When it created a sensation the friend declared, "This piece was created by a man whom this school rejected three times!". His The Thinker and The Kiss are simple truths. I love to visit our city's Rodin Museum.
He painted many self-portraits to explore the use of facial muscles to express emotions. After the early death of his first wife during childbirth he painted his second, young wife over and over as a goddesslike figure in his works.
This man's profound love of subject and painting is, at times, overwhelming. His use of color is a constant source of complete amazement to me. I feel honored to exchange links with 1st-Art-Gallery who offer Handmade Oil Painting Reproductions of over 1000 of Renoir's works, and are sponsors of Wikigallery.org
He is best known for the paintings he produced while spending many years in native Tahiti. His unique style is probably closest to Impressionism, but what attracted me to his work was how he showed a very different culture as something beautiful.
Many years before the 2002 movie "Frida" I borrowed and studied a book on this artist from our city's Central Library. In 2007 I saw over 40 of her paintings at our city's art museum.
His Expressionist painting style is very different from my own, but his work holds such depth for me. Often avoiding great detail his strong brushwork usually shows dark emotions in a very powerful way. His subjects of death, age or fear are so different from mine, but I must write that his method of portraying them is one of my favorites. His messages are so undeniable.
With remarkable confidence she has put a "love of motion" into my paintings.
His first novel "Ultimate Rush" is, without a doubt, one of the best books I have ever read - and I read a lot. I can get lost in his beautiful writing style the same way I can get lost in Renoir's beautiful brushwork...
a charming, intellectually charged coffee shop that regularly changes its' wall art - hey, sometimes it's my art !
At a time when I was faltering in my endeavors to produce small paintings I re-discovered Ms Calascione through an old "favorites" file I had saved. Her work is truly astounding, and much of it is done on 8x10" panels.
I had been seeing this man's work for years through all manner of vehicles. Upon seeing a big book of his illustrations at the book store I had to put the book down because of the pricetag - then I remembered my son had given me a gift card to that bookstore. I immediately took the gift card from my wallet, picked up the book and went to the cashier. At home I spent many hours pouring over his intriguing illustrations, but was sad to learn that he never married and was never recognized as an artist but only as an illustrator.
For many years I hesitated to mention this man who, with his wife Marie, lived an obscure life in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA. However, their hundreds of loving photographs represent such an affection for each other that they immediately became a source of inspiration for me. Emulating them, we also began to make brushes from my wife's hair years ago and I have beome a master of their use.
