Blake, as a professional engraver, led a print shop with his wife Catherine where he had introduced a revolutionary engraving technique called relief etching. Blake used it for the first time in his collection of poems for children, Songs of Innocence in 1789, and in the expanded collection Songs of Innocence and Experience five years later in which he presented his talented illustrations incorporated with lyrical poems intended to change the world. His poems were unconventional and untypical, they were not purely instructional and educational, as literature of that time was. Blake

Pablo Picasso, known as one of the most prodigious artists of all time was born on October 25th, 1881 in Malaga, Spain, son of Don José Ruiz Blasco and Doña Maria Picasso y Lopez. Interested more towards the vivid world of art rather than schoolwork, he exhibited an extraordinary talent of drawing at a very young age. Hence Picasso’s father who was a painter and an art teacher by profession introduced him to the different techniques and mediums. In 1895, Picasso moved to Barcelona in order to attend the Llotja School of Fine Arts. Instead of attending classes, Picasso was rather interested in roaming the streets of Barcelona sketching city scenes.

Close is recognisable because he was creating modern compositions of self portraits and portraits in the 60s, an age when no one was doing this anymore, a time when ART WAS DEAD. Using the large scale was also shocking as it had such impact when placed in a room.

Several paintings from his teenage years still exist, such as First Communion (1895). He created an important example at every stage of his career from the classical works of the 1920s to the works produced in occupied Paris during the 1940s.

And, the next year, after years of scraping by in Moscow, Vitebsk and other towns, Chagall and Bella moved back to Paris. At this point, Chagall’s name was recognized in modern art circles, affording him the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and Mediterranean. In the heart of the Green Violinist (1923-24) is nostalgia for the artist’s rustic village. Fiddlers on rooftops were a popular motif of Chagall’s, stemming from his memories of Vitebsk. This very motif also reflects the artist’s deep devotion to his Jewish cultural roots; his subject who may represent the prophet Elijah is an extension of the rooftop, indicated by geometric shapes in his pant legs and by windows.

I have lived in Mason County, West Virginia for 20 years and had not noticed how much art there is within the county. First, I thought art had to be a painting or a sculpture, until I took an Art Class at MOVC with Mr. Jan Haddox. Mr. Haddox said on the first day “Art is what you like, it can be creative or unique, and does have to just be a painting or a sculpture.” This is what opened my eyes to the art in Mason County. First, the piece of art that sticks out the most to me is the floodwall along the Ohio River. The floodwall shows the Battle of Point Pleasant, a bloody war between Native Americans and early Americans.
Located in a historic Civil War era grist mill by the river, the Brandywine River Museum is home to native artists and much more.
