SIR PETER PAUL RUBENS (1577-1640)

Click the image to open in full size.

Rubens was a prolific seventeenth-century Flemish Baroque painter, and a proponent of an extravagant Baroquestyle that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality. He is well-known for his Counter-Reformation altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects. In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp which produced paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically-educated humanist scholar, art collector, and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, King of Spain, and Charles I, King of England.

TITIAN (1488-1576)

Click the image to open in full size.

Titian was one of the most versatile of Italian painters, equally adept with portraits, landscape backgrounds, and mythological and religious subjects. His painting methods, particularly in the application and use of color, would exercise a profound influence not only on painters of the Italian Renaissance, but on future generations of Western art.

GIORGIONE (1447-1510)

Click the image to open in full size.

Giorgione was the first to paint landscapes with figures, the first to paint movable pictures in their own frames with no devotional, allegorical, or historical purpose and the first whose colors possessed that ardent, glowing, and melting intensity which was so soon to typify the work of all the Venetian School.

BOTTICELLI (1445-1510)

Click the image to open in full size.

Botticelli is one of the most important figures of the late fifteenth-century Florentine school. His art was closely associated with humanist culture. With Botticelli begins the trend toward poetic and philosophical expression in art that depends on the interests of its patrons and that characterizes much' of the painting of the High Renaissance after 1500. His work represents the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting.

REMBRANDT (1606-1669)

Click the image to open in full size.

Rembrandt was a Dutch painter and etcher, generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art history. His primary subjects were portraiture, landscape and narrative painting. Rembrandt's greatest creative triumphs are exemplified especially in his portraits of his contemporaries, self-portraits and illustrations of scenes from the Bible. His self-portraits form a unique and intimate biography, in which the artist surveyed himself without vanity and with the utmost sincerity. In both painting and printmaking he exhibited a complete knowledge of classical iconography, which he molded to fit the requirements of his own experience; thus, the depiction of a biblical scene was informed by Rembrandt's knowledge of the specific text, his assimilation of classical composition, and his observations of Amsterdam's Jewish population. Because of his empathy for the human condition, he has been called "one of the great prophets of civilization."

GOYA (1746-1828)

Click the image to open in full size.

Goya was regarded as the last of the Old Masters and as the first of the moderns. Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown, and through his works was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The subversive and imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of later generations of artists.

One of the interesting facts about Titian is his recurring use of a particular hair color on his female subjects. He used it so often that 'titian' is listed in the dictionary as a hair color:

Quote:

a reddish-brown or golden-brown color: hair of titian.

I am very fond of Ver Meer as well as Waldmuller. Dutch masters, Flemish masters, and Impressionist catch my eye. Sometime after Monet and Renoir is when I think art stopped being art. Now really, look at a Gaugin, Van Gogh, Dali or Picasso and tell me that it is no more than bizarre fantasy. Some of Matisse's work could have been painted by a 1/2 blind monkey. Truely dreadful.
