Despite physical limitations caused by a childhood accident, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s artistic gifts were nearly limitless. His interest — and deep involvement in — the Parisian nightlife made him one of the foremost chroniclers of the French fin de siècle. Though many critics would classify Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec as a post-Impressionist, Toulouse-Lautrec shared many of the same interests as the traditional Impressionists. Paintings such as At the Moulin Rougecentered around the urban  [ Read More ]

How Henri Matisse Worked

Henri Matisse was the key artist in the Fauvist movement of the early 20th century, one of the first avant-garde movements in European art. Matisse came from humble beginnings and rose to the top of the international art world. His long and prolific career started before the turn of the century and spanned two world wars, several painting styles and art media from painting to sculpture to paper cutouts.

Claude Monet

To his own generation — and to every generation since — Claude Monet (1840-1926) embodied the spirit of the artistic revolution known as Impressionism. He was at the forefront when a small group of young artists, dissatisfied with the conservative standards of the jury that selected the works of art each year for the official Salon art exhibition in Paris, decided to mount their own exhibition. Monet helped formulate the  [ Read More ]

Master of Flémalle Netherlandish painter named after three paintings in the Städelsches Kunstinstitut in Frankfurt that were wrongly supposed to have come from Flémalle, near Liege. There is a strong consensus of scholarly opinion that he is to be identified with Robert Campin (active 1406-44), who was the leading painter of his day in Tournai but none of whose documented pictures survive. The identification depends on the similarity between the Master of Flémalle’s  [ Read More ]

John Constable

Constable, John (1776-1837). English painter, ranked with Turner as one of the greatest British landscape artists. Although he showed an early talent for art and began painting his native Suffolk scenery before he left school, his great originality matured slowly. He committed himself to a career as an artist only in 1799, when he joined the Royal Academy Schools and it was not until 1829 that he was grudgingly made a full Academician,  [ Read More ]

William Blake

Blake, William (1757–1827), the third son of a London hosier. He did not go to school, but was apprenticed to James Basire, engraver to the Society of Antiquaries, and then became a student at the Royal Academy. From 1779 he was employed as an engraver by the bookseller J. Johnson, and in 1780 met Fuseli and Flaxman, the latter a follower of Swedenborg, whose mysticism deeply influenced Blake. In 1782  [ Read More ]

The van Eycks started their careers as manuscript illuminators. The often miniature detail and exquisite rendering found in van Eyck paintingsm such as the Annunciation, reveal a strong affinity with this art form. However, the single factor that most distinguishes the van Eycks from the art of manuscript illumination was the medium they used. For many years Jan van Eyck was wrongly credited with the “discovery of painting in oil”. In  [ Read More ]
