Modigliani’s mannered art

The third great outsider among the émigrés in Paris died all too soon. The Italian Amedeo Modigliani destroyed himself through drink and drugs, driven desperate by his poverty and bitterly ashamed of it. Modigliani was a young man of fey beauty, and his work has a wonderful slow elegance that is unusual, but compelling. Through the influence of the Rumanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, he fell under the spell of primitive  [ Read More ]

Indeed, it wasn’t until the age of 27 when, after brief sojourns into different professions — including those of art dealer, teacher, and lay minister — van Gogh devoted himself to painting. Vincent quickly developed his own style, learning by studying theImpressionists and Japanese art. In  [ Read More ]

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.
