Joseph Lorusso: Joseph Lorusso is an international contextual artist who uses oil paint as a main medium to create beautiful artworks with blissful subject matter. His works often portray women in relaxed states, as well as many couples, with some in relaxed states and others kissing each other or staring into one another’s eyes. He paints figures and landscapes using the style of great Italian and French masters while many in today’s context have moved onto more modern styles. Lorusso’s work is beautiful and calming, despite his strong use of warm colours, and often has no hidden meaning which allows the viewer to appreciate his technique and formal aspects more. His works are both visually appealing and he makes use of an old style which makes the subject matter appear somewhat realistic.

The people at the gathering would have wanted reasons to admire the great work of art so they would start discussing it in detail. The Aegisthus Painter’s red-figured kalpis would have had a similar affect with large gatherings. By the 470sBCE when it was painted, the technique had already been honed and had a fan base. It became more popular, because “replacing the graver with the brush gave the artist a subtler line and a new range of line expression” (Boardman page 280). People began to admire the details that the artist could incorporate
Most Valuable Artists Award 1715-1750 Antoine Watteau Watteau was revolutionary for his time because of the breakthrough of having his Pilgrimage to Cythera, 1717, accepted as his entry into The French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture and only by creating a subcategory called fete gallant, meaning amorous festival, to accept Watteau as a student. His work was recognized by the Rubenistes as having the most important elements, use of coloristic balance and style of subjects, of early Rococo style depicting the amusements of outdoor activities that the high society French aristocrats enjoyed. Watteau's figures were elegantly posed, relaxed, and full of softness with relation to the lush landscape; it all comes together in a dream-like
Though the evidence he brings is entirely based on emotional opinion, Traub gives his audience a sense of credibility that certainly helps his case.

With less wars, we can actually focus on pleasurable things like music, art, writing, etc. Who knows, we might even hit a golden age! France is an amazing kingdom-- especially under King Louis reign-- and we should be doing things to make it stronger and great, not tear it down. There have been many great kings to rule France. However, King Louis is the best king we have and most likely will see in a long time!
His inspiration came from his dad José Ruiz Blasco who was a painter (specialized in naturalistic depictions of birds, animals etc.) Seeing his father always painting Pablo decided to try it out.

He combined all these elements with his own characteristics and developed to form his own style. In general, Rubens's appropriate handling of sketches relationship, and the manner he adopted of light and shade give a strong sense of volume in his landscape paintings; brilliant colors, flow composition and full structure make his landscape paintings full of magical visual effects; arc and swirling "Baroque" Rhythm which all-encompassing display eternal change. Rubens's aroque world, is a beautiful, boast, full of flesh world representative of the imperial power. Yet, Poussin considered Rationality above all else, He admired humans and nature, rather than the king. Poussin balanced the Baroque and Classicism, his landscape painting are serene, noble, and have a sense of order, to depict Idealized landscape painting and eventually developed classical

Thomas Eakins was born and lived in Philadelphia for most of his life. His father, Benjamin Eakins, was a weaver, and Thomas often observed his father at work. This led him to develop skills in drawing lines, perspective, and the use of a grid, which he later used for his art. Eakins attended Central High School, where he studied applied science and arts, and excelled in mechanical drawing. In 1861, he studied drawing and anatomy at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
Man with a Wine Glass is no exception to that statement, which is even more enhanced by the level of description the docent went into. The more she spoke about the cheery smile and the richness of the contrasting lights and darks, the more I felt welcomed to join this individual in his liveliness. She then went on to compare it to Young Man with a Plumed Hat (1631) by Rembrandt and the comparisons were made between the values of darkness in contrast with the light of the subject. Both have a painterly style that consumes features such as the subject 's hair and attire, but differ in shadows and value. While Velazquez 's painting is bright and open, Rembrandt 's
