. Painter: Claude Monet. Camille Monet and a child in the artist's garden in Argenteuil, France. Date: 1875. Style: Impressionism. Genre: Portrait. Media: Oil, canvas. Location: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, USA.
'Impression, Sunrise' by Claude Monet is another one of my favourite paintings. This was created from a scene in the port of Le Havre. Monet depicts a mist, which provides a hazy background to the piece set in the French harbor. The orange and yellow hues contrast brilliantly with the dark vessels, where little, if any detail is immediately visible to the audience. From the 15th April to 15th May 1874 Monet exhibited his work together with Pissaro, Sisley, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and some other thirty artists. They organized their exhibition on their own as they were usually rejected at the Paris Salon. Most visitors were disgusted and even outraged over such a graffiti.  A critic who attended the exhibition, M. Louis Leroy, wrote a now famous article in Le Charivari in which he used the term "Impressionist" based on the title of this painting. Despite the fact that Leroy had used the word derisively, the group decided to adopt it and painters such as Renoir and Degas were happy to be called Impressionists. #claudemonet #impressionism #impressionists #impressionsunrise #monet #art #painting #famouspainting #famouspainter #painter #favouritepainting

Study of light 6 - part of ‘Traces’ a Solo exhibition by Chiara Mac Call, showing for one last week at Kuca Bukovac, Cavtat, Croatia. The exhibition followed a residency in which the artist was asked to respond to the house of impressionist painter Vlaho Bukovac. One of the stand-out features of Bukovac’s work is his depiction and use of light on materioal and skin. Having seen the light in Cavtat I have become convinced that Bukovac absorbed his sense of light in his home town of Cavtat and then sought it out (often painting in plain air) wherever he went. As part of the work I made a series of studies of the light in Cavtat and neighbouring Dubrovnik. . . . . #kucabukovac #vlahobukovac #bukovac #Cavtat #Croatia #photography #impressionists #painters #photographyresidency #residency #light #enplainair #creativity #artphotography #documentary #response #self -taught #skin #artphoto #womenartists #traces #womeninphotography #photographyexhibition #soloshow #photographinglight #lightphotography #museum #selfportraitit #exhibition #photographyshow

The latest landscape painting #impressionist #impressionists
Oil painting on canvas Size: 2by3 feet Title: The Gaze 2018 THE GAZE, is the story of a mother and her children,the love,affection,attention,and the feelings from the mother to her little ones. The gaze tends to create the illusion of what lies within our minds,which throws the question beyond our feelings. Each one of us has the opportunity in life to ease the suffering of another by our tender care and gaze of love .When we encounter another in need,we have the opportunity to express our compassion. While pity looks down on another from a perspective of superiority,true compassion suffers with another with authentic empathy. True compassion enters into another's mind and heart,walks arm and arm with another down every rough road. Reflect, today, upon this beautiful scene of the gaze in love,affection,caring shared from mother to her love ones as reflected to the love of christ at cross. Throughout the painting intends to give the viewers the journey for love and happiness to the new offspring @artforsale0 @fraublau_mal_erleben @contemporaryartcollectors @artcollectormagazine @naija_art @_artvav @young_art_collector #collector #artcollector #artbuyers #paintingsforsale #art_empire #contemporarypainting #impressionists #oilpaints #nigeriaweddings @gtbank @myaccessbank #illusionist #realisticpainting #oilcolour #drawing_expression #artistz_united #african_portraits #ghanaians #london #art_empire #contemporarypainting #impressionists #oilpaints #nigeriaweddings @gtbank @myaccessbank #illusionist #realisticpainting #oilcolour #drawing_expression #artistz_united #african_portraits #ghanaians #london 🇬🇧#thecubecafe @thecubecafe @thesparkng @pedro.ferreira.hipolito @doiidesigns @grenning.gallery

Last week to see my solo show ‘Traces’ at Kuca Bukovac in Cavtat, Croatia - which is closing on Sunday 16 December. My enduring thanks to the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and to Villa Pattiera for sponsoring the residency. To everyone at Kuca Bukovac Museum for opening their doors and making me feel so welcome and to Cavtat for being such a welcoming home from home. Leila, @petra_kralj_fox and @lucijavuko - this could have never happened without you. I was so lucky to work with three such wonderful curators.

"...a powerful sense gathers of the closeness of the relationship between man and beast. Munnings captures love in all its loyal simplicity, as it could survive amid the hatred and horror of war." -The Times . "There’s a genuine uniqueness to Munnings’s war art, in how the beauty of impressionist brush strokes and vibrant colours collides with the sadness and destruction of war." ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ -Time Out .

Gaze of Solitude" oil on canvas, 24.2by36inches 2018 All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, human Are life eternal: and in silence they Speak happiness beyond the reach of man. I am that person who only understand life lyrically,visually and expressively in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. Gaze of Solitude is an expressive and tranquil mood of a young girl,who despite everything in life........She is that one girl who could see beyond the edge of life with her tender gaze of a bright future,she expresses tranquility even in the midst of challenges and, by her serenity, make others more tranquil. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy,and live a life within. In life.......at times we have to experience the state of tranquility(been all alone) to understand who you are as a person, that ideology about life,and your self forgetting all ups and down and open your subconscious mind to see beyond your worries,and see things natural to your way of being and thinking #art_empire #contemporarypainting #impressionists #oilpaints #nigeriaweddings @gtbank @myaccessbank #illusionist #realisticpainting #oilcolour #drawing_expression #artistz_united #african_portraits #ghanaians #london 🇬🇧#thecubecafe @thecubecafe @thesparkng @pedro.ferreiraj.hipolito @doiidesigns #art_empire #contemporarypainting #impressionists #oilpaints #nigeriaweddings @gtbank @myaccessbank #illusionist #realisticpainting #oilcolour #drawing_expression #artistz_united #african_portraits #ghanaians #london #art_empire #contemporarypainting #impressionists #oilpaints #nigeriaweddings @gtbank @myaccessbank #illusionist #realisticpainting

I searched for this book for many years across the world, and finally this copy was presented to me, marked by it’s previous owner in 1957. It was with very mixed feelings that I read it, and I will reserve my judgement. To follow on yesterday’s post about Dylan Thomas, her husband, it could not have been easy for her living with such an extraordinary person. Or without him...Have you read Leftover Life to kill? 🌻 #40yearjourney .co #travelblogger #travelblogging #bloggersofinstagram #travellifestyle #bloglife #tblogger #wanderlust #impressionists #wonderfulplaces #lovetotravel #roamtheplanet #seekmoments #booklover #lakedistrictuk #sculpture #momentsofmine #ednastvincentmillay #operahouse #mahler #wagner #vincentvangogh #johnkeats #wordsworth #bestintravel #cntraveler #dylanthomas #bbctravel #johnruskin #renaissanceart

Warning: This post is all about my favorite paintings from The National Gallery. If you have no interest in art, well you're missing out! . . . I love the Impressionists and my favorite artist is Matisse so I was excited to see more of his work in person. The first picture is his painting "Portrait of Greta Moll." She and her husband were students of Matisse (lucky!!!!). . . 2nd: Paul Cezzane 's "Bathers (Les Grandes Baigneuses). Was an inspiration for the Cubist movement and both Matisse and Picasso took interest in it. . . 3rd: "The Haystacks" by Paul Gauguin. One of a series of paintings. . . 4th: Edgar Degas' "Combing the Hair (La Coiffure")" which was once owned by Matisse. Cool, right? . . 5th: Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh. One of four. He intended to decorate a room in his house in the South of France with them for his friend, Gauguin. . . 6th: "Motherhood (La Maternite)" by Pablo Picasso. . . 7th: Vincent Van Gogh's "A Wheatfield, with Cypress" painted while he was in a mental asylum. I love this painting; especially the stroke of the clouds! . . 8th: Another Matisse, "The Fountain at Fontainebleau". . 9th: "Van Gogh's Chair" by, surprise, Van Gogh 😀. . . 10th and last but not least "The Gare St-Lazare" and The Thames Below Westminster" by Claude Monet. . . Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my favorite paintings. Stay tuned for some random around London pictures!. . . #monet #gauguin #vangogh #cezanne #degas #matisse #picasso #thenationalgallery #london #explore #adventure #travel #wanderlust #travelislife #travelisgoodforthesoul #art #impressionists

Édouard Manet, Boating at Argenteuil, 1875, Museum of Fine Arts, Tournai, Belgium, Oil in canvas , 131 x 122 cm In the summer of 1874, Monet, Renoir, and Manet were together at Argenteuil on the Seine near Paris and painted several portraits of each other with their families and friends. This picture of Claude Monet and his wife is one of the most vivid and suggests Manet’s close ties with the Impressionists, even though he always refused to exhibit with them. From this date Manet’s paintings become more and more marked by the broken color and bright palette of the work of his associates. Outdoor themes, unusual in his early paintings, become much more common, and his attitude is grayer and more carefree.
The @National_Gallery London has a nice collection of my favourite impressionists (we did not have time to see the temporary exhibition, though), and a lot of other beautiful artworks! 😍 #nationalgallerylondon #nationalgallery #degas #edgardegas #monet #claudemonet #vigeelebrun #tizian #rembrandt #saintsebastian #dutchmaster #impressionists #impressionism #balletdancer #painting #masterpiece #instamuseum #narodnigalerie #londyn #impresionismus #vystava #umeleckedilo #nadhera #umeni
The Boat House and Laugharne was exactly the way Dylan Thomas described it ‘ It is the strangest town in Wales’ But beautiful in it’s harshness, it is as if nothing has happened there since he left. Reading ‘The Love Letters of Dylan Thomas’ is quiet tragic, a lovesick poet, always searching 🌻 #40yearjourney .co #travelblogger #travelblogging #bloggersofinstagram #travellifestyle #bloglife #tblogger #wanderlust #impressionists #wonderfulplaces #lovetotravel #roamtheplanet #seekmoments #booklover #lakedistrictuk #sculpture #momentsofmine #ednastvincentmillay #operahouse #mahler #wagner #vincentvangogh #johnkeats #wordsworth #bestintravel #cntraveler #dylanthomas #bbctravel #johnruskin #renaissanceart

Grid Series of 9: Hey, are those two sisters? “Bal du moulin de la Galett” 1876 Pierre-Auguste Renoir This probably Renior’s most famous painting, if not the most famous of all of Impressionism’s works. Another moment capturing the lively neighborhood of Montmartre … again my favorite neighborhood in Paris … and home of Amelie! Regard not only the typical Sunday afternoons and brushstrokes of the time but Renoir’s masterful attention to the shafts of light through the canopy above, which fall with purposeful fortuity on the painting’s subjects. #BaldumoulindelaGalett #PierreAugusteRenoir #Renior #artist #paris #museedorsay #painter #postimpressionist #postimpressionists #impressionist #impressionists #1890s #oilpainting #oil #texture #brushstrokes #artofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #art #arthistory #museum #france #postimpressionism #impressionism #artofinstagram #montmartre
Grid Series of 9: Orange et Bleu … The man who couldn’t save him. "Le docteur Paul Gachet" 1890 aka "Portrait of Doctor Gachet" Vincent van Gogh The second of two near identical paintings of the physician who took care of Van Gogh in the last months of his life. While (#fact ) Van Gogh only sold two paintings in his lifetime, the sister-painting to this one later became the highest selling work of art at any public auction in history. It is documented a once suspicious Van Gogh wrote his brother that the doctor was “sicker” than he was. On another day, he wrote his sister that he had found a friend in Gachet. Such is the duplicity of a troubled mind. #vincentvangogh #artist #paris #museedorsay #painter #postimpressionist #postimpressionists #impressionist #impressionists #1890s #oilpainting #oilpainting #texture #brushstrokes #artofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #vangogh #art #arthistory #museum #france #postimpressionism #impressionism #artofinstagram #arthistory
Moving on from the pieces. I thought I knew this person and so took the picture. Turns out I didn't, but I love the painting lol! “Le déjeuner sur l'herbe” aka “Luncheon on the Grass” started 1865 - abandoned 1866 Claude Monet Monet’s once obsession and challenge to Edouard Manet’s painting of the same title became an unfinished piece that has mystified many. I think the plaque at the Musee D’Orsay said the original piece was huge, 12’ x 18’. Some accuse Monet of abandoning the work because he could not handle early critiques of the painting from his contemporaries (the original Manet with nudes was far more scandalous). He later claimed it was because the painting became moldy while in storage and so he cut it up in to three panels (only two remain today). I think the most curious aspect of this is the why Monet privately kept the still-cumbersome pieces (even working to get them out of debt hock) if he never had plans for them. They say art is never finished, it’s abandoned and this is a wonderfully-literal example which, none the less, managed to end up in a most-prestigious museum. I think sometimes one can no longer want a particular challenge when it’s discerned that its meaning is lost or, more poignantly, is illusory —that one just simply, emotionally moves on to better and more inspiring things yet keeps these scraps around as now transcendent reminders of lessons learned. Monet stated years later about this piece that he learned to avoid large format works because they tended to get him “in trouble.” Re: the things that get us in trouble: I feel you Claude. Regardless, the incomplete painting allows a rare perspective into his work flow. #lovethebootsthough #erasertime #erasehertime #lolz #claudemonet #monet #artist #paris #museedorsay #painter #postimpressionist #postimpressionists #impressionist #impressionists #1890s #oilpainting #oil #texture #brushstrokes #artofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #art #arthistory #museum #france #postimpressionism #impressionism #artofinstagram
