Pablo Picasso‘s sexual appetite was irrepressible,

Home Design: Add Warmth Fireplace Paintings to Your Room

2 Dec

The paintings over a fireplace can be hung by placing a piece of art where you desire it to be the wall, calculate the sum of space left between the artwork and the cloak and find the middle point amid the two numbers where the painting is going to hung.

FYI, the heat rising from a fireplace, over time, can destroy the integrity of the painting. To remedy this, place the oil painting near but as far away from the fireplace as you can stand. I’ve found one helpful answer about how to hang an oil painting over a fireplace. Here is the link: http://www.ask.com/question/how-to-hang-a-painting-over-a-fireplace Hopes help! Have a nice winter night!

Real Portraits by Rene Magritte

20 Nov

Man In A Bowler Hat was made in 1964, which was actually a self-portrait. This portrait painting measures 63.5 X 48 cm which is now owned by a private person in New York (Simone Witherspoon Swan). The gentleman in a bowler hat wearing a black coat was Magritte himself. He used a dove accidentally flying through his face to cover his face. By his own account, he was quite different from most surrealist painters in Paris and despised using colors for portraits. He just wanted to tell the audience that the portrait was just an ordinary middle-class citizen. Since he never drew others, painting himself was actually in violation of the cases. Sometimes, turning one’s face away was using accidental things to block. This was another feature of his surrealist portraits. For more please visit http://www.artisoo.com

Hard to Make a Definition of Decorative Painting

6 Jul

In general, it refers to the painting with decorative significance and independent art form. Decorative painting differs from the ordinary pattern and picture in that it has the appreciation and decorative value to meet people’s needs for decoration. Decorative painting is defined in Fine Arts volume of the Encyclopedia as follows: decorative painting is characterized by the focus on appreciation of content, certain exaggeration in the pattern and spatial correlation in color, which generally does not emphasize the true light shadow and perspective in the three-dimensional space.

Rather than trying to figure out what the painting looks like, just allow yourself to be taken in by the painting. See what emotions, sensations or memories emerge. Let your eyes relax and travel around the piece without expectation. Examine the colors, forms, materials, surface, and how they interact with each other. Take your time. Let the painting “speak” to you. Notice how the various elements like shape, color and form affect you. An intricately detailed, vibrant painting will affect you differently than a calm, cool Malevich.

It can be divided into figure decorative painting, home decorative painting, etc, in terms of the nature, it can be divided into abstract decorative painting, modern decorative painting, from the production material, it can be divided into oil painting, dynamic painting, wooden painting and photography painting, in production method, it can be divided into print decorative painting, mounting decorative painting and hand made decorative painting.

Sonia Delaunay Oil Paintings

Sonia Delaunay was a true Renaissance woman of many talents and aspirations. Although she found incredible successes in her life as a wife, mother, socialite, businesswoman and artist, she often lived in the shadow of her husband, Robert Delaunay. It was only decades after her husband’s death that Sonia Delaunay acquired the attention and appreciation that she fully deserved. As a vanguard of the modern female artist movement, Sonia exerted an influence upon the world of art and culture that remains unforgettable and momentous.

Sonia Delaunay was born Sophie Stern on November 14 1885 in Gradzihsk, Ukraine. She moved to Paris in 1905 to study art at Academie de la Palette. Along with her husband Robert Delaunay and others she cofounded the Orphism art movement, best known for its use of geometric shapes and eye-catching colours. Her love of collage inspired Delaunay to combine her skills in fine art with applied arts to experiment with texture and colour combinations in fabric designs. Delaunay began this experimentation in 1913 but it was the Russian Revolution of 1917 which forced her into the apparel business. To support her family, Delaunay opened a boutique “Casa Sonia”, in Madrid, Spain where her family had been living during the First World War. Creating and selling clothing and accessories became Sonia’s life and she became well known for her unusual motifs and colours which enveloped the body, it was said that her clothing became a moving painting. In 1921 she returned to Paris after having closed her boutique to design for private clients as well as couturiers such as Jacques Doucet, Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel and Jacques Heim. Over these years she experimented with textiles, embroidery and designing with wool which led onto her swimsuit creations which have became well known and loved as influential 20th century Modernist design.

Post-Impressionism Oil Paintings

 

Post-Impressionism in Western painting, movement in France that represented both an extension of Impressionism and a rejection of that style”s inherent limitations. The term Post-Impressionism was coined by the English art critic Roger Fry for the work of such late 19th-century painters as Paul Cézanne, Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and others. All of these painters except van Gogh were French, and most of them began as Impressionists; each of them abandoned the style, however, to form his own highly personal art. Impressionism was based, in its strictest sense, on the objective recording of nature in terms of the fugitive effects of colour and light. The Post-Impressionists rejected this limited aim in favour of more ambitious expression, admitting their debt, however, to the pure, brilliant colours of Impressionism, its freedom from traditional subject matter, and its technique of defining form with short brushstrokes of broken colour. The work of these painters formed a basis for several contemporary trends and for early 20th-century modernism.
