Scheme and Steal to Create These Paintings of Man's Best Friend

 

Depictions of dogs extend back thousands of years, from paintings on cave walls to portraits with Royalty. And beginning in the 18th century, to portraits of dogs themselves. Seen as status, hunters, guardians, and even gifts, they've symbolized protection, guidance, loyalty and love. But there is nothing more curious than our furry friends seen with human traits, emotions and intentions. As far back as ancient Egypt Anthropomorphism was used to embody and satirize human behavior. It has popped up over centuries to critique the world we humans live in, or simply to mock human inclinations, or make a point under the cover of canine actors. Whether with human tendencies, at our feet or singularly as the star, dogs are cemented in history and contemporary culture as viable art subjects.

Alfred de Dreux, Phillip Reinagle, and Sir Edwin Henry Landseer were serious artists well-known by 19th Century aristocracy. They were also witty dog lovers... (see more)

Scheme and Steal to Create These Masterpieces by Impressionist Artists Gone Rogue

 

At the turn of the 19th century a group of up-and-coming Impressionist artists felt Impressionism was running out of ideas. Wanting to shake up the contemporary art world, artists like Van Gogh, Cezanne and Lautrec pursued their own artistic experiments -highly personal art- rejecting nature and realism favoring more ambitious expression: Evocative color, distinctive brushstrokes and emotional symbolism. Unlike other art groups, these dissenters -often rivals- painted mainly alone yet were unified by a subjective approach to painting. Known for diverse yet distinctive styles, exhibited together they represented a French art movement coined Post-Impressionism. These Post-Impressionist artists pioneered a new personal approach to painting forming a basis for trends that followed and early 20th century Modernism.

Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cezanne and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec were pioneering non-conformists. They are considered three of the greatest artists of the Post-Impressionist period. And their individualism became an influence for generations of artists... (see more)

Scheme and Steal to Create Paintings by Visionaries of the Modern Revolution 

 

Modernism in art goes back further than the word implies: 1860-1960. The Industrial Revolution changed values, the way people lived, and access to new ideas. The new ideas and discoveries challenged their previous lives. Tradition didn't seem as important anymore. Seeking to align with the experience and values of modern industrial life, artists used new imagery, materials and techniques to create artworks to better reflect the realities and hopes of modern society--often associated with ideal visions of human life and a belief in progress. Rejecting realistic depictions, these artists presented the world as they perceived it behind physical appearance in a wide variety of personal visions-- innovating, experimenting, emphasizing materials, techniques and processes. These many works and movements are significant in the transition from traditional to contemporary art.

Paul Klee, Vasily Kandinsky, and Piet Mondrian were each trend-setters in their own right. Each left a unique legacy for those who followed their vision... (see more)

Scheme and Steal to Create These Paintings by Women Ahead of Their Time

 

Before there was Women's Suffrage. Before Women's Lib. Well-before artists like O'Keeffe, and the Feminist Art Movements of the 1960’s and 70’s, there was a long history of feminist activism in an era when the concept of feminism was still unknown. In the mid and latter 19th Century, bright, independent-minded women uncomfortable with their role in society, fought to increase women's influence and power in a male-dominated world. Among them were Cassatt, Goncharova and af Klint whose courage and tenacity pushed the boundaries of the gender inequality of the times. Their artistic or philosophical contributions anticipated modern feminist concepts and laid the groundwork for activism paving the way for the generations that followed. 

Mary Cassatt, Natalia Goncharova, and Hilma af Klint were ground-breaking, head-strong women of the 19th Century. Against the odds of the times, their independence helped change the course of art... (see more)
