Paul Cezanne fun facts

Cézanne’s The Bather depicts an adolescent boy mid-step, capturing a fleeting moment in time. The painting is quite traditional in its subject matter—a male figure in a landscape. But unlike traditional painting, Cézanne’s Bather is pensive, even anxious; his body is decidedly unheroic. Set against a barren, ambiguous backdrop, it is [...]

Vincent van Gogh Flowers in a Vase

During the ten years that Vincent van Gogh painted, he depicted many different genres; portraits, landscapes, and still lifes. Some of those still lifes were of bottles, chairs, shoes, or famously, flowers. From Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, to his Irises, or his Roses, he brought life and emotion to his work – taking a subject matter that has [...]

Facts about Claude Monet

The great French artist, Claude Monet, was responsible for introducing the idea of impression to the art movement of those who painted what they perceived at a certain point in time. Impressionists paint colors perceived with natural light, with little importance given to details. Shapes are formed by how the colors of the scene are [...]

Artist Michel Delacroix

Michel Delacroix was born in 1933 on the Left Bank, in the 14th Arrondissement of Paris. He started painting at the early age of seven just as the German Occupation of Paris began. Paris as it was during the Occupation is the Paris that appears in his paintings even today; there was a virtual absence of automobiles and streetlights, the [...]

Paul Gauguin Portraits

For many, the “myth” of Paul Gauguin—the self-taught artist who abandoned his family to focus full-time on painting in distant places—can overwhelm his actual life story and contributions to art. Apart from his personal story, Gauguin’s innovations—his bold style that expressed emotion through strong color, and his [...]

Marcel Duchamp Nude Descending Staircase

Painting is dead. When I first came upon this statement, I embraced it as a challenge. Challenge and risk taking are what fosters the creative evolution. Painting is far from dead, but if it is to continue to be a vital component in the arts, if it is to continue to evolve, then painting must be taken to new dimensions. I have taken this [...]

Gauguin Pictures

With its 47 works by Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) the Glyptotek covers the whole of his artistic development – from Paris, via Copenhagen, to Brittany and Tahiti. Gauguin is one of the most important artists of the 19th century. He is famous for his Tahiti pictures (1891-1903), but his entire oeuvre shows him to be one of the pioneers of [...]

Paul Cezanne Art Style

I’ve generally thought that Cezanne’s paintings throughout most of his career have a detached and introverted quality to them. From 1873 (pretty early), The House of the Hanged Man at Auvers: What stands out to me is the layering of the painting, which is a very Cezannish quality. You want to enter the scene of the painting, [...]
