He was fascinated by the great masters and reproduced the masterpieces of Velásquez and Rembrandt on oil canvas boards. Muriano also stated that, “Each piece is unique as long as it is the fruit of our imagination. It can be photo, a song, a dream, a poem or just passing by people on the street. For me everything is a source of inspiration” (“Patrice Muriano Paintings: Delightful “New Pop” Acrylic Series”). As of today Patrice Muriano still lives in the south of France, and he exhibits his artwork in New York, Osaka, Los Angeles, and other places of the
Moreover, both Ponchins travelled to many locations to paint magnificent pictures. Choosing a picture to paint about from this gallery was a challenge for me mainly because both Antoine and Jos. Henri Ponchin had a similar painting style, but I finally concluded to write about a painting from Antoine Ponchin titled The Roman Ruins.
For this assignment I have chosen two paintings to compare and contrast. One painting is by Diego Rivera which is called “Man, Controller of the Universe” and the other one is by Henri Matisse, which is called “Woman with a Hat”. I choose these two painting because the one by Diego caught my eye by how busy and creative it was; and the artwork by Henri caught my attention because of how the colors were and how they were mixed to make another colors. To start with, both of the artworks may be paintings, but they are painted very differently. The artwork done by Henri Matisse is painted by brushstrokes of paint and views can see where the artist used brushstrokes.
Edgar Degas Born in 19 July 1834, conceived Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas, was a French craftsman well known for his work in painting, figure, printmaking and drawing.

Delacroix often painted contemporary and historical events in a style that characterized political and exotic scenes passionately. After Delacroix traveled to Morocco and developed an interest in Orientalism was enchanted by exotic people, their culture, and the colorful clothing they wore shaped his use of pure hues. Delacroix's works are passionate and reflected his belief that beauty exists in nature and he looked to recreate those values that nature held such as no straight lines existed and very rarely could you find a pure hue. Delacroix in a way anticipated the Impressionists use of color theory and he understood the power that complementary colors bring to a composition. 1850-1875 Edouard Manet Manet was an original artist that shocked his contemporaries with two scandalous paintings in 1863, Luncheon on the Grass, and Olympia.
If you give a meaning to certain things in my paintings it may be very true, but it is not my idea to give this meaning. What ideas and conclusions you have got I obtained too, but instinctively, unconsciously. I make the painting for the painting. I paint the objects for what they are.” There is no doubt that the images in Guernica
She wonders about her mother’s love, waits for her return and tries to understand. The absence of knowledge about her mother’s return or if she was ever to return was a continuous thought for Naomi. “What matters to my five-year-old mind is not the reason that she is required to leave, but the stillness of waiting for her to return” (59). Naomi speaks again of stillness later in the novel. Although this time the stillness represents not waiting for her mother’s return but her lifelong preparation of handling the news of her mother’s death.
Renoir, in conjunction with his classmates Claude Monet, Sisley, and Bazille established the Impressionist movement. Taking art in an exceedingly new direction, these young artists experimented with new techniques and were thought of as radicals of their time and as a result they burst the foundations of ancient types of painting, and worked outside of the studio. Although Impressionism in France began once many alternative painters were experimenting with plein-air painting, Pierre Auguste Renoir and his peers developed new techniques that outlined the movement; their art was immediate, and it represented movement with sincere compositions and vivid colors. Rejected by the Salon, they displayed their works privately exhibitions and gained support for their distinct, trendy paintings. Their works were simply recognizable by their use of bright colors, visible brush strokes, and stress on light weight.
The primary group included artists Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Mary Cassatt. Monet was named the father of the French Impressionism movement because he was responsible for bringing most of the individuals together (.theartstory.org/artist-monet). Monet’s work was mostly oil on canvas paintings that were in the Realism and Impressionism styles. His most important paintings were Parasol-Madame Monet and Her Son and the series called “Water Lilies”. According to the website, The Art Story, “Impressionism and Monet are now considered the basis for all of modern and contemporary art, and are thus quintessential to almost any historical survey” (theartstory.org/artist-monet).
Grant started painting in the late thirties, and studied school in Paris in his twenties. Eventually, he was familiar with modern painting and decided to paint like that for a long time. That soon ended when he returns to the Midwest, he forgot everything that he had learned about modern art to paint realistic style art. He wanted to paint art that had a cultural and colonial meaning to it. Around august,
Kerry James Marshall’s work is informed by his deep appreciation for the history of artistic expression, and profoundly influenced by urban culture, the African-American experience, and civil rights. “What I want to happen when I go to a museum is that expectations of what you find in there are completely altered, so that it’s not commonplace to just see European paintings with European bodies, but it’s also as likely that you will see ... black figures, Asian figures, or Hispanic figures.” Marshal’s art references a number of movements such as Fauvism, abstraction, and perception. He also has a unique way of using of cultural symbolism and pictorial devices that are informed by his own experiences of the world and his avid collecting of artefacts from classical mythology, folklore, African and African-American history, film history, art, literature, posters and comic books. Marshall 's pictures use a
The Hudson River School was a group of American artists who were interested in capturing aspects of the American landscape and also shared a specific genre of painting. Their focus shifted across the continent and many tried to capture the beauty of the uncultivated west. Thomas Cole and Asher B. Durand were two very significant Hudson River School artists whose almost invisible brushstrokes and muted palette defined the art of the American landscape for society in the mid-nineteenth century. Previously, Europe had been the center for art and controlled what art was accepted, but the United States’ uncultivated wilderness was a popular subject for landscape painters. There was a sense of mystery and grandeur that was attractive to artists and people paying to see the art.
Marilla probably felt sorry for Anne and then decided to keep her as shown in the text where it states “She and Matthew never decided to get rid of her.” After the conference, Marilla shows sympathy towards Anne as demonstrated in the last part of Scene 3. I think Marilla judged Anne by her appearance and not by her personality and when Marilla learned more about Anne’s past life, she then developed a passion for Anne and decided to keep her after hearing about her past life rather judging her on her physical appearance and then trading her for a male orphan. That’s how I believe this will affect her relationship with Anne and Anne’s story about her past life caused Marilla to change her
He first became known for his charcoal caricatures. He took his first drawing lessons from Jacques-François Ochard. In Normandy he met Eugène Boudin who taught him oil paints and “en plein air”. While others tried to copy works from famous artists Monet would paint what he saw outside. While Monet was in Paris he made a few friends who were painters and were also impressionists.
