Exhibition In Rotterdam The Netherlands 2012

Place: Kunsthal Rotterdam

Date: October 6, 2012, to January 20, 2013

Title: Avant-Gardes, The collection of the Triton Foundation

Presentation: In close collaboration with the Triton Foundation, over a hundred and fifty works of international top quality have been selected from over one hundred different artists from the vanguard, avant-garde and Western art movements. Works can be seen by great innovators such as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Piet Mondriaan and Yves Klein, as well as other avant-gardists who departed from the prevailing artistic rules adhered to by their predecessors and went on to experiment with new forms of expression. These artists include George Braque, Francis Picabia, Willem de Kooning, Elsworth Kelly, Frank Stella and many others. Enhanced with works by great masters such as Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh, the Avant-Gardes exhibition offers a comprehensive overview of developments in modern art.

  • Waterloo Bridge, Claude Monet 1901.

Exhibition In Albertina Vienna Austria 2012

Date: 10 February 2012 – 13 May 2012

Title: Impressionism, Pastels Watercolors Drawings

Presentation: The exhibition presents more than 200 pastels, watercolours and drawings of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists with the primary goal of demonstrating the outstanding position of their work on paper. This is the first international show dedicated exclusively to this theme. Particularly among the artists of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, drawing achieved a ranking equal to that of painting an equality that would prove to be pioneering for modernity.

While the paintings of Monet, Degas, Renoir, Pissarro, Manet, Seurat, Signac, Cézanne and Gauguin enjoy great popularity, their at least as impressive work on paper is much less well-known. It was thanks to these artists in particular that the drawing, in addition to its mainly secondary usage as preparatory study material, also received a primary function and was able to redefine itself as a complete, independent work of art.

  • Waterloo Bridge, Claude Monet 1901.

Washington Crossing The Delaware

Emanuel Leutze | 1851 | Oil on Canvas | Gallery 760

This paining is arguably one of the most famous pictures of American patriotism . Washington Crossing the Delaware is emblematic of perseverance in the face of great odds. This large canvas painting has been copied and recopied, parodied, and celebrated countless times in its history.

Though painted almost one hundred years after the events it depicts, the painting presents Washingtons perilous journey across the frozen Delaware river with immediacy and passion. Depleted and short on morale, the men of Washingtons company crossed Delaware in a surprise attack on enemy troops quartered in Trenton, New Jersey on Christmas Day in 1776.

A fire actually damaged the painting in Leutzes studio in 1850. It was again damaged in a bombing raid in 1942 and thankfully is still with us today! In 1851, Marshall O. Roberts bought the painting for $10,000. According to Official Data, that would be a whopping $342,000 today!

Artwork In Public Spaces

After opening its doors in October 2019, MoMA displayed six of its artworks on view in public spaces to celebrate its reopening. These include Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Lobby, Café 2, the Louise Reinhardt Smith Gallery, the Carroll and Milton Petrie Terrace Café, and the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building.

Title: Impressionism and Post Impressionism from The High Museum of Art, Atlanta GA USA

Presentation: Impressionism and Post Impressionism from The High Museum of Art, Atlanta GA USA showcases almost 50 paintings, drawings, and prints by such renowned artists as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent. The works in this exhibition illustrate the emergence of Impressionism in 1870s France, its evolution to Post-Impressionism, and its later influence on American artists.

The exhibition commences with works by such pre-Impressionist artists as Eugène Boudin to mark the initial transition from the traditional, academic paintings of the Paris Salon to the loose brushwork and airy landscapes that defined the Impressionist movement. Paintings by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Frédéric Bazille, the founders of Impressionism, illustrate this radical departure and further convey this movements fascination with light filled color and broken brushwork.

  • Autumn on the Seine at Argenteuil Claude Monet 1873.

  • Houses of Parliament, Symphony in Blue Claude Monet 1903.

Portrait Of A Woman With A Man At A Casement

Fra Filippo Lippi | 1440 | Tempera on Wood | Gallery 602

The life of Fra Filippo Lippi is as fascinating as reading a bookif not even more so! Orphaned at a young age, his aunt gave him over to a monastery. According to Giorgio Vasari, pirates kidnapped him and held him for 18 months as a slave until he painted a portrait of his owner.

Later in life, he had quite the scandal since he ended up having a relationship with a young nun, Lauri Buti. Apparently, he was caught and tortured and was only released after Cosimo de Medici stepped in to save him. On another side note, the union of the painter and his nun lover resulted in them getting married and having a son, Filippino Lippi, who was a magnificent painter in the later 15th century.

According to the Met official archives, Portrait of a Woman with a Man at a Casement is the earliest surviving double portrait in Italy, the first to show the sitters in a domestic setting, and the first with a view onto a landscape.

On the womans sleeve you can see the letters Lealta which means loyalty. There is a man who is staring at her at the window, so maybe this is her betrothed? His hands are touching a coat of arms, which I am sure back in the day would have been recognizable to many who viewed this painting. Many art historians feel that this couple may be Lorenzo di Ranieri Scolari and Angiola di Bernardo Sapiti, who were married around 1439.

    Julie Le Brun Looking In A Mirror

    Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun | 1787 | Oil on Canvas | Gallery 616

    Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun possessed a life made for a movie.

    Le Brun is one of the finest 18th-century French painters and arguably one of the most important of all woman artists. She taught herself how to paint and was extremely talented. She lived during the turbulent times of the French Revolution, yet still she achieved great success.

    At just 21 years old, Elizabeth Le Brun married to a leading art dealer in Paris and due to his profession, she was not accepted at first into the prestigious Academie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture. However, she just so happened to know Queen Marie Antoinette and was admitted at the age of 28.

    Once the French Revolution broke out, she was forced to flee France since she was pretty tight with the Queen. She lived in Italy for a while before eventually returning to France.

    I chose this painting as number one, not only due to its uniqueness in character, but also its impossible perspective. Le Bruns talent is truly on full display as one of the master portrait artists of the 18th century.

    These portraits capture a new appreciation in late eighteenth-century Europe of childhood as a unique, impressionable moment of life distinct from adulthood.
