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.

Fishing by Edouard Manet

July 15th, 2016

Fishing was painted by Edouard Manet in 1862–63. Manet’s lifelong friend Antonin Proust recorded Delacroix’s injunction when they visited him in 1856: “Look at Rubens, draw inspiration from Rubens, copy Rubens. Rubens was God.” The present painting could be considered a direct result of Delacroix’s admonition.

For the composition, Manet borrowed elements from Rubens’s “Park of the Chateau de Steen” (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna) and “Landscape with Rainbow” (Musee du Louvre, Paris). In the foreground Manet substituted figures of himself and his companion, Suzanne Leenhoff, for those of Rubens and his second wife, Helena Fourment. For this reason, the painting is associated with the marriage of Suzanne and Manet.

Since the artist had concealed his relationship with Suzanne from his father, who died in September 1862, it is likely that the painting was made sometime between then and the wedding in October 1863.

Landscape Paintings The Bathing Pool by Hubert Robert

July 15th, 2016

The Bathing Pool was painted by Hubert Robert. This is one of a set of six paintings from a room in the Chateau de Bagatelle, on the outskirts of Paris which belonged to the comte d’Artois, brother of Louis XVI.

Robert often incorporated the antique ruins and monuments he had studied in Italy, in the present case the temple of Jupiter Serapis at Pozzuoli, near Naples. The statues of Mercury and Venus are based on works by the French sculptor Pigalle while the landscape is imaginary.

The Immaculate Conception by Guido Reni

July 15th, 2016

The Immaculate Conception was painted by Guido Reni in 1627. Reni, the most celebrated painter of seventeenth-century Italy, was particularly famous for the beauty of his female heads and the devotional effectiveness of his pictures of the Virgin Mary.

This altarpiece was commissioned in about 1627 by the Spanish Ambassador, the Count of Onate, for the Infanta of Spain. It was later in the Cathedral of Seville, where it exercised a deep influence on Spanish painters, especially Murillo. It was subsequently (1851–1946) in the collection of the Earls of Ellesmere at Bridgewater House in London.

Religious Paintings The Lamentation

July 15th, 2016

The Lamentation was painted by Scipione Pulzone in 1593. This altarpiece was painted for the chapel of the Passion of Christ in the church of the Gesu, in Rome, the headquarters of the Jesuit order. Its style was intended to complement the austere interior space of the church.

Pulzone’s canvas is conceived not as a narrative but as a meditation on the Entombment of Christ, in line with Ignatius Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises. Details such as the tears of the Virgin, the crown of thorns held by Saint John, and the pallor of Christ’s body are presented to the viewer for contemplation. Pulzone’s brand of realism made him an important exponent of Counter Reformation art.

Fruit Paintings The Afternoon Meal

July 15th, 2016

The Afternoon Meal was painted by Luis Melendez in 1772. This still life by Melendez is exceptional in its format and composition. The setting in a luscious landscape is also unusual for him; his compositions are usually set against stark backgrounds.

The painting is similar to a series of four which were painted for the Nuevo Cabinete de Historia Natural of the Prince of Asturias (now in the Museo del Prado, Madrid). It is likely that the Museum’s still life originally had a pendant canvas of the same size, with a landscape. The presence of a picnic basket justifies the title of The Afternoon Meal (in Spanish, La Merienda).

Classical Oil Paintings of Women Elizabeth Farren

July 15th, 2016

Elizabeth Farren was painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence in 1790. The Irish actress Elizabeth Farren made her London debut in 1777 as Kate Hardcastle in Oliver Goldsmith’s “She Stoops to Conquer.” She was at the height of her career when this canvas was shown at the Royal Academy in 1790. Seven years later, she married the twelfth earl of Derby.

This beautiful portrait helped to secure for Lawrence the role of successor to the elderly Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723–1792).This painting can be reproduced on canvas by MuseumArtPaintings.com. Original Dimensions: Height: 238.8 cm, Width: 146.1 cm. Other sizes and custom sizes are available, if you are interested, please visit our site or contact us at email: artsalehelp@gmail.com.

Religious Paintings The Adoration of the Christ Child

July 15th, 2016

The Adoration of the Christ Child: The fourteenth-century mystic Saint Bridget of Sweden recounted Christ’s birth after experiencing a vision. The “great and ineffable light” she described as emanating from the Child is the most compelling feature of this picture.

The portrayal of this divine splendor allowed painters to convey the mystical aura of the event and to experiment with dramatic lighting effects. Drawings and numerous paintings of the subject suggest that a lost work by Hugo van der Goes was the source of the composition.

This painting can be reproduced on canvas by MuseumArtPaintings.com. Original Dimensions: Height: 104.1 cm, Width: 70.2 cm. Other sizes and custom sizes are available, if you are interested, please visit our site or contact us at email: artsalehelp@gmail.com.

Saint John on Patmos by Hans Baldung

July 15th, 2016

Saint John on Patmos was painted by Hans Baldung in 1511. A painter and printmaker of great originality, Baldung was trained in Durer’s Nuremberg studio before he established his own workshop in Strasbourg in 1509. This painting shows Saint John in exile on the island of Patmos, experiencing a vision of the Virgin as he writes his Book of Revelation.

The panel originally joined two others-Saint Anne with the Christ Child, the Virgin, and Saint John the Baptist (National Gallery of Art, Washington) and the Mass of Saint Gregory (Cleveland Museum of Art)-to form a triptych, commissioned by the Order of Sankt Johann in Jerusalem at Grunenworth in Strasbourg.

Religious Paintings Virgin and Child

July 15th, 2016

Virgin and Child was painted in 1670–72. Like Zurbaran and Velazquez, Murillo was trained in Seville, where he spent his whole career. This painting of the Madonna and Child formed part of the collection of the Marques de Santiago, who owned a number of outstanding works by the artist.

The popularity of Murillo’s paintings of the Madonna and Child derives from his ability to endow a timeworn theme with a quality of intimacy and sweetness. The infant’s attention has, in this picture, been momentarily diverted from nursing by the presence of the viewer.

This painting can be reproduced on canvas by MuseumArtPaintings.com. Original Dimensions: Height: 165.7 cm, Width: 109.2 cm. Other sizes and custom sizes are available, if you are interested, please visit our site or contact us at email: artsalehelp@gmail.com.
