John William Waterhouse Die Lady von Shalott The Lady Of Shalott

John William Waterhouse The Lady Of Shalott (1888)

The Lady of Shalott is an 1888 oil-on-canvas painting by the English Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse. The work is a representation of a scene from Alfred Lord Tennyson's 1832 poem of the same name, in which the poet describes the plight of a young woman, loosely based on the figure of Elaine of Astolat from medieval Arthurian legend, who yearned with an unrequited love for the knight Sir Lancelot, isolated under an undisclosed curse in a tower near King Arthur's Camelot. Tennyson also reworked the story in Elaine, part of his Arthurian epic Idylls of the King, published in 1859, though in this version the Lady is rowed by a retainer in her final voyage. Waterhouse painted three different versions of this character, in 1888, 1894 and 1915.

Leonardo Da Vinci Ginevra De' Benci Renaissance Portrait

Leonardo Da Vinci Ginevra De' Benci (1474)

Ginevra de Benci was an aristocrat from fifteenth-century Florence, admired for her intelligence by Florentine contemporaries. She is the subject of a portrait painting by Leonardo da Vinci. The oil-on-wood portrait was acquired by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., United States, in 1967.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. Leonardo was, and is, renowned primarily as a painter. Among his works, the Mona Lisa is the most famous and most parodied portrait and The Last Supper the most reproduced religious painting of all time, with their fame approached only by Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam. Leonardo's drawing of the Vitruvian Man is also regarded as a cultural icon, being reproduced on items as varied as the euro coin, textbooks, and T-shirts.

Claude Monet war Wegbereiter des Impressionismus und beeinflusste vor allem die Landschaftsmalerei. Monet traf den engeren Kern der Gruppe der Impressionisten während eines Aufenthaltes in Glenyre, woraufhin er sich von den etablierten Maltechniken abwandte. Seine Malerei ist charakterisiert durch seine facettenreiche Farbgebung, die verschiedene Stimmungen gekonnt ausdrückt. Monet malte oft das gleiche Motiv zu verschiedenen Tageszeiten und fing dadurch die Vergänglichkeit von Zeit und Licht ein. Seine Werke, vor allem seine Seerosen-Motive, die Elemente des Expressionismus schon vorwegnahmen, waren grundlegend für die moderne Malerei des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Vincent Van Gogh Head Of A Peasant Fine Art Painting

Peasant Character Studies is a series of works that Vincent van Gogh made between 1881 and 1885. Van Gogh had a particular attachment and sympathy for the working class fueled in several ways. He was particularly fond of the peasant genre work of Jean-Francois Millet and others. He found the subjects noble and important in the development of modern art. Van Gogh had seen the changing landscape in the Netherlands as industrialization encroached on once pastoral settings and the livelihoods of the working poor with little opportunity to change vocation. Van Gogh had a particular interest in creating character studies of working men and women in the Netherlands and Belgium, such as farmers, weavers, and fishermen. Making up a large body of Van Gogh's work during this period, the character studies were an important, foundational component in his artistic development.

Vincent Van Gogh Die Kartoffelesser

Vincent Van Gogh Die Kartoffelesser

Die Kartoffelesser (niederländisch De Aardappeleters) ist ein Gemälde Vincent van Goghs, das er im April 1885 in Nuenen malte.
Das Gemälde misst 81,5 × 114,5 cm und ist mit Ölfarben auf Leinwand gemalt.
Die Kartoffelesser ist das erste große Werk van Goghs, an dem er einige Monate lang arbeitete. 
Dargestellt werden beim Nachtmahl sitzende Bauern. Van Gogh, der sich auch kurze Zeit als Prediger versuchte, wollte den Bezug des Menschen zur Natur und zu seiner Hände Arbeit ausdrücken. Er schreibt dazu am 30. April 1885 im Brief 404 an seinen Bruder Theo:
„Gern hätte ich dir zu diesem Tag das Bild von den Kartoffelessern geschickt, doch obwohl es gut vorwärtsgeht, ist es doch noch nicht ganz fertig. Obschon ich das eigentliche Bild in verhältnismäßig kurzer Zeit gemalt haben werde, und zwar größtenteils aus dem Kopf, so hat es doch einen ganzen Winter Malen von Studienköpfen und Händen gekostet. [...] Ich habe mich nämlich sehr bemüht, den Betrachter auf den Gedanken zu bringen, daß diese Leutchen, die bei ihrer Lampe Kartoffeln essen, mit denselben Händen, die in die Schüssel langen, auch selber die Erde umgegraben haben; das Bild spricht also von ihrer Hände Arbeit und davon, daß sie ihr Essen ehrlich verdient haben. Ich habe gewollt, daß es an eine ganz andere Lebensweise gemahnt als die unsere, die der Gebildeten. Ich möchte denn auch durchaus nicht, daß jeder es gleich schön oder gut fände.“

Während der zwei Jahre, die der Maler in Nuenen verbrachte, entstanden über 180 Gemälde, vor allem Bilder von Bauern aus der Umgebung, aber auch zahlreiche Stillleben. Ab Ende 1884 hatte er vier Amateure aus dem nahen Eindhoven als Schüler, die ihn jedoch nicht mit Geld, sondern mit Mahlzeiten und Farben bezahlten. 1885 schuf er Die Kartoffelesser, das als Hauptwerk geltende Gemälde dieser Periode. Der Künstler litt jedoch in der Provinz unter seiner Isolation. Die für ihn nächstgelegene Kunststadt war Antwerpen, wohin er im November 1885 aufbrach.
