Modern Abstract Art Paintings Cool For Rooms Decoration

August 19th, 2016

The reason modern abstract art paintings for rooms decoration become so popular is that abstract paintings not only simple but also can stir our emotions, creatively inspire us, and add a greater level of depth to an entire room simply through the artist’s use of color, shape, and texture. Alongside music, abstract art is among the purest forms of expression, as it allows artists the freedom to communicate feelings and emotions unconstrained by forms found in objective reality.

Abstract paintings may be made using many media, with many artists using acrylics, while others prefer to create abstract oil paintings or abstract watercolor paintings. As a result of the freedom abstract art brings, many contemporary artists are drawn to create non-representational works, and abstract canvas paintings are perpetually in demand by collectors and art lovers around the globe.

Famous Landscape Paintings Albert Bierstadt The Rocky Mountains

July 16th, 2016

Famous Landscape Painting The Rocky Mountains Lander’s Peak is painted by Albert Bierstadt in 1863. This painting is the major work that resulted from the artist’s first trip to the West. In spring 1859, he accompanied a government survey expedition, headed by Colonel Frederick W. Lander, to the Nebraska Territory. By summer, the party had reached the Wind River Range of the Rocky Mountains in what is now Wyoming.

Bierstadt dubbed the central mountain in the picture Lander’s Peak following the colonel’s death in the Civil War. This was one of a number of large works painted after Bierstadt’s return from these travels. It was completed in 1863, exhibited to great acclaim, and purchased in 1865 for the then-astounding sum of $25,000 by James McHenry, an American living in London. Bierstadt later bought it back and gave or sold it to his brother Edward.

Classical Painting Maria Luisa of Parma Later Queen of Spain

July 16th, 2016

Maria Luisa of Parma, Later Queen of Spain was painted by Laurent Pecheux in 1765. This portrait, whose commission is recorded in great detail in the artist’s autobiography, was for the family of her fiance, the Prince of Asturias, later King Charles IV of Spain (1748–1819).

The decoration of the Hapsburg order of the Croix-Etoilee, which she wore all her life, is pinned to her dress and she holds a snuffbox with a miniature of her future husband in her right hand.

Children Oil Paintings A Boy with a Cat

July 16th, 2016

A Boy with a Cat was painted by Thomas Gainsborough in 1787. The canvas had as its pendant a painting of two children, one seated and one standing, warming themselves before a cottage fire. The latter has disappeared but its composition is known from an 1809 mezzotint engraving.

The pair formed part of a group of rustic paintings of working-class children much admired in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as “fancy pictures.” Jack Hill, shown here, was a professional beggar whom Gainsborough took into his house as a model.

Landscape Paintings The Forest at Pontaubert

July 16th, 2016

The Forest at Pontaubert was painted by Georges Seurat in 1881. Seurat spent two months in the late summer and early fall of 1881 in Pontaubert, a village in the Cousin Valley southeast of Paris frequented by Daubigny, Corot, and other Barbizon artists.
The visit inspired this “sous-bois” or forest glade, which Seurat probably completed the following winter in the studio he shared with his traveling companion and former Ecole des Beaux-Arts schoolmate Aman-Jean. It shows his technique just before he developed Pointillism.

The Adoration of the Shepherds with Saint Catherine of Alexandria

July 16th, 2016

The Adoration of the Shepherds with Saint Catherine of Alexandria was painted by Cigoli in 1599. Cigoli, a painter of considerable intellectual accomplishment and a friend of the great scientist and astronomer Galileo Galilei (1564–1642), was the key artist in Florence in the late sixteenth century.

This altarpiece was painted at the height of Cigoli’s career and introduced to Florentine painting a new emotional warmth and emphasis on color, based on the work of of Barocci and Titian. Some of the details are taken directly from nature, such as the still life around the Christ Child and the rustic figures at the right.

Cigoli’s work emphasizes the study of nature together with the work of the masters of the High Renaissance. This painting can be reproduced on canvas by MuseumArtPaintings.com.

Jesus Christ Painting Head of Christ

July 15th, 2016

Head of Christ was painted by Rembrandt. Rembrandt painted this subject a number of times; three examples, one described as “Een Christus tonie nae’t leven” (“a head of Christ done from life,” that is, from a model probably found in the Jewish quarter of Amsterdam), were cited in the 1656 inventory of the artist’s possessions.

Of the dozen bust-length portraits of Christ known today, only the small panel in Berlin is universally accepted, but several others are obviously the work of pupils. The present picture, which is sensitive both in conception and execution, must be either by Rembrandt or by one of his most gifted followers.
