Influenced by the Shoreham landscapes of Samuel Palmer, and his teacher John Nash, here are the eerily empty landscapes of Essex, Sussex Downs, and elsewhere.

Cézanne: ‘The Father of Modern Art’ — msamba (Reblog)

Paul Cézanne is perhaps one of the best-loved painters of Western art. Yet the popularity of his still life and landscape works has perhaps tamed the radicality of his vision in our own eyes. It is easy to forget that these seemingly traditional 19th century Post-Impressionist paintings caused ‘a landslide in art’. Jacky Klein explains […]

Murder At The Gallery (Tuesday Poetics dVerse)

Photo by NEOSiAM 2020 on Pexels.com

It was at the Turner Exhibition.
Hutchings was a quiet lad, for a copper;
he had a passion which no one suspected — and it got him killed.
I took the call and we all piled ’round.
There he was, wrapped up in bubble wrap,
sequestered in the store room
next to ‘Snow Storm’; not one of my favourites.
Someone had taken a scalpel to him,
a right mess he was, poor lad.
When we got to his flat there were art books all over,
though not a morsel in the fridge. Evidently Hutchings —
I shall call him George — used to feed on art.

A History of Fruit and Art — Where Creativity Works (Reblog)

“With an apple I will astonish Paris.” – Paul Cézanne, 1839-1906 Fruit’s existence is one of my favorite parts of being a human. It sounds silly, but the sensation of eating something that is explicitly designed by nature for that purpose fills me with a wonderful sense of contentment. Fruit is beautiful to look at, […]

Cézanne and I — lampmagician (Reblog)

I’d like to paint the way you write; says Cezanne to Zola. I think there fits also the other way round; I’d like to write the way you paint. It’d be a short post (because my lovely granddaughter Mila will come soon?)I have watched this movie yesterday, though I have recorded some weeks ago and […]

Women Artists in Brittany — Bonjour From Brittany (Reblog)

Brittany has been a great source of inspiration for artists from across the world drawn to the beauty of its natural landscapes and unique quality of light. The women artists who came to draw inspiration from the rich colours and distinctive landscapes of the region have sometimes been overlooked and I highlight some of these pioneering painters here.

Art Sunday: Marie Bracquemond – Under the Lamp — Random Writings on the Bathroom Wall (Reblog)

Marie Bracquemond (1 December 1840 – 17 January 1916) was a French Impressionist artist, who was described retrospectively by Henri Focillon in 1928 as one of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism alongside Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt.  Her frequent omission from books on artists is sometimes attributed to the efforts of her husband, Félix […]
