In 1874, Morisot married Eugene Manet (Edouard’s brother), a painter in his own right. Recognizing her talent, he put his career on hold to manage hers—something that was quite simply unheard of.

  • Vincent Van Gogh
‘Self-Portrait Dedicated to Paul Gauguin’
Oil on Canvas
1888

Harvard Art Museum
@harvardartmuseums
_
In early 1888, Van Gogh moved to Arles in the south of France, where he hoped to establish an art colony. Believing that painting could be reinvented through the genre of portraiture, he encouraged his fellow artists to paint themselves, and then to exchange the canvases. After receiving self-portraits from Emile Bernard and Gauguin, who were working together in Brittany at the time, Van Gogh inscribed this painting “To my friend Paul Gauguin,” and sent it to him. He described the process of creating his arresting likeness in several letters to his brother Theo, an art dealer in Paris, explaining how he manipulated his features in response to Japanese prints, changed the contours of his jacket for coloristic effect, and painted the background “pale veronese green” without any shadows. Shortly after he sent the work to Gauguin, however, their friendship deteriorated, and Gauguin sold it for three hundred francs.

  • Paul Signac
‘Harbour at Marseilles’
Oil on Canvas
1907
_
The State Hermitage Museum
@hermitage_museum 
_
The pointillist technique used in this painting consists of small dotted applications of paint, and is sometimes also described as divisionism. Signac was one of a number of artists and theorists who created a scientific method of separating complex tones into pure colours, applied using identical brushstrokes arranged in a decorative mosaic, which are then combined by the eye when seen from the necessary distance. The spontaneity and empiricism of Impression were here combined with the deliberation and precision of a carefully defined system, which also influenced the construction of such paintings, in which the "chance" Impressionist composition was replaced by the traditional centralised composition framed by "wings". This landscape was probably composed from drawings and watercolours taken from nature, which was the artist's usual method of work.

  • So we recently spent some time at the Angkor National Museum, an archaeological museum dedicated to the collection, preservation and presentation of Angkorian artefacts. It also provides information and education about the  art and culture of the Khmer civilisation, with collections mainly dated from the Khmer Empire's Angkor period circa 9th to 14th-century. Most of the artefacts are discovered in and around the Angkor archaeological sites nearby, and this was a fascinating morning excursion. Our favourite part? The Room of a Thousand Buddhas. Amazing!

  • Я пишу о художниках из разных стран, но все равно преобладают Франция, США и Россия.
Исправляю ситуацию.
Алфонс Муха, чешский живописец, декоратор, график, мастер театральной и рекламной афиши. Один из ярчайших представителей стиля модерн. Альфонс Мария Муха родился в городке Иванчице 24 июля 1860 года. в семье небогатого судебного чиновника, мораванина Ондрея Мухи. Матерью художника была Амалия Муха, дочь богатого мельника (мораванка по отцу и полька по матери). В детстве Альфонс увлекался пением и был принят певчим в хор мальчиков капеллы собора Св. Петра и Павла в Брно, что позволило ему учиться в гимназии. По окончании гимназии он пытался поступить в пражскую Академию художеств, но не выдержал экзамены и некоторое время по протекции отца работал писарем в суде своего города. Всё своё свободное время он посвящал занятиям в местном любительском театре — вначале как актёр, затем как декоратор и художник афиш и пригласительных билетов.
В 1879 м году его пригласили в Вену работать театральным художником-декоратором. Однако в в 1881 году, в «Рингтеатре» случился пожар, который привел к гибели около 500 человек и уничтожил его мастерскую, декораторская фирма потерпела крах, а сам он был так потрясён, что покинул Вену и переехал в небольшой моравский городок Микулов (Никольсбург), где работал над украшением родового замка графа Карла Куэна-Беласси, а затем и его парадного дворца Эммахоф (названного в честь Эммы — жены графа) в моравском городе Грушовани. Вскоре художник совершил, вместе с супругами Куэн-Беласси, путешествие в Северную Италию и в австрийский Тироль. Там Альфонс некоторое время расписывал стены замка, принадлежавшего брату Куэн-Беласси. Восхищённый талантом юного Мухи, граф согласился оплатить расходы по его учёбе в Мюнхенской академии изящных искусств. Здесь Альфонс Муха вскоре возглавил Ассоциацию Славянских художников.
После двух лет занятий в Мюнхене Муха в 1887 году переехал в Париж и поступил в Академию Жюлиана, а затем в Академию Коларосси. Однако, в том же 1887 году граф Куэн-Беласси покончил с собой. Муха остался без средств к существованию. Ему пришлось прервать занятия живописью и зарабатывать на жизнь изготовлением рекламных плакатов.....

  • How did I get so lucky to study so many histories and sciences that I love in life? For awhile, I was working on a project at the Mütter about 19th C microscopy. And I’m double lucky to still be there starting soon on weekends to talk all about the topic with this lovely Zentmeyer microscope from 1876. Joseph Zentmeyer was a great instrument maker back in the old days of Philadelphia. He even won an award from the Franklin Institute for his microscope ideas. (We have one on display there at the museum as well.) Anyway, Zentmeyer was also at the Centennial Expo to introduce some of his designs, and that’s one event I’m obsessed with. #microscope #microscopy #museums #museumlife #muttermuseum #philadelphia
