Julia Margaret Cameron - old photo

Julia Margaret Cameron (née Pattle; 11 June 1815 Calcutta – 26 January 1879 Kalutara, Ceylon) was a British photographer.She became known for her portraits of celebrities of the time, and for photographs with Arthurian and other legendary or heroic themes.Cameron's photographic career was short, spanning eleven years of her life (1864–1875). She took up photography at the relatively late age of 48, when she was given a camera as a present.Her style was not widely appreciated in her own day: her choice to use a soft focus and to treat photography as an art as well as a science, by manipulating the wet collodion process, caused her works to be viewed as «slovenly», «mistakes» and bad photography. She found more acceptance among pre-Raphaelite artists than among photographers. Her work has influenced modern photographers, especially her closely cropped portraits. Her house, Dimbola Lodge, on the Isle of Wight is open to the public

Howard Hodgkin · British painter and printmaker

Hodgkin's paintings often seek to convey memories of encounters with friends and frequently carry titles alluding to specific places and events such as Dinner at West Hill (1966) and Goodbye to the Bay of Naples (1980–82). Hodgkin himself has said that he paints «representational pictures of emotional situations».
His prints are hand-painted etchings and he has worked with the same master printer (Jack Shirreff at 107 Workshop) and print publisher (Alan Cristea Gallery) for the last 25 years.Despite their apparent spontaneity and usually small scale, many of Hodgkin's paintings take years to complete, with him returning to a work after a wait and then changing it or adding to it. He often paints over the frames of his pictures, emphasising the idea of the painting as an object. Several of his works are on wooden items, such as bread-boards or the tops of old tables, rather than canvas. A number of his works not shown in frames are surrounded by rectangles of simple colour

Nancy Riedel - art for sale

«My name is Nancy, I live and work in Nuremberg as a graphic designer for 12 years now. Even in my childhood I felt attracted to art and design. Last years were coined by digital graphic design. Drawing on paper disappeared bit by bit and so my desire for more „handicraft“ growed. In the beginning of 2017 I followed my un-explored interest, to create with spraycans and I dived deep into the world of graffiti. A white wall is not given anytime and anyplace and so I started to paint on hardboard with the result of the shown pictures. Mainly I work with a mix of spraycolor, acryl and stencils. Creating a picture takes me 100% into the focus of here and now. Art is a personal experience and the expression of love, which wants to flow into the world through me. I want to inspire and touch.»(Nancy Riedel )

Howard Chesner Behrens

Howard Chesner Behrens (August 20, 1933 – April 14, 2014) was American popular artist whose original works of art are sold in fine art galleries, at auction on cruise ships, and at Costco. Behrens' limited and open editions are sold internationally. Behrens was also one of the top-selling artists on Princess Cruises.
«Many years ago, I learned that the only way I can really achieve what I feel in my paintings is to create them using a palette knife instead of a brush. I love the boldness of the knife, and the control I have of color. Using the knife, I find that I can capture not only the softness of clouds, but also the boldness of mountains, the vibrancy of flowers, and the strength of water. I move the knife furiously as I apply deep, rich color in many layers to achieve dimension and mood.» Even a casual observer who seeks to venture beyond the natural greatness of the scene and the power of that dull blade (the palette knife) as it shapes unwitting pigments of color into visual dreams, will recognize that Mr. Behrens' work speaks to the segment in each of us that wants a better, more beautiful world, as if by reproducing the outside in its perfect state, the artist can induce us to greater internal satisfaction. Howard Behrens is a romantic poet sculpting paint on canvas, and while he has spawned an entire cottage industry of emulators, few, if any, capture the emotional breadth of this man in love with love, life and the sun.

Between Surrealism and Abstractionism Hedda Sterne

«Hedda Sterne (born Hedwig Lindenberg) was an artist best remembered as the only woman in a group of Abstract Expressionists known as „The Irascibles“ which consisted of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, and others. Sterne was, in fact, the only woman photographed with the group by Nina Leen for Life magazine in 1950. In her artistic endavors she created a body of work known for exhibiting a stubborn independence from styles and trends, including Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism, with which she is often associated.Sterne has been almost completely overlooked in art historical narratives of the post-war American art scene. At the time of her death, possibly the last surviving artist of the first-generation of the New York School, Hedda Sterne viewed her widely varied works more as in flux than as definitive statements. In 1944 she married Saul Steinberg the Romanian-born American cartoonist and illustrator, best known for his work for The New Yorker.During the late 1940s she became a member of The Irascible Eighteen, a group of abstract painters who protested the Metropolitan Museum of Art's policy towards American painting of the 1940s and who posed for a famous picture in 1950; members of the group besides Sterne included: Willem de Kooning, Adolph Gottlieb, Ad Reinhardt, Richard Pousette-Dart, William Baziotes, Jimmy Ernst, Jackson Pollock, James Brooks, Clyfford Still, Robert Motherwell, Bradley Walker Tomlin, Theodoros Stamos, Barnett Newman, and Mark Rothko»

CoBrA - European avant-garden art Asger Jorn

«Asger Jorn was a Danish artist and co-founder of the avant-garde CoBrA group in 1948.  He is best known for his paintings, lithographs, and etchings, where he experimented with spontaneous line and semi-figurative representation—two fundamental aspects of the distinctive CoBrA visual language. In one of his best-known series called Défigurations, he overpainted inexpensive 19th century works that he collected at the flea markets, obscuring the classical images with his gestural style. Born on March 3, 1914 in Vejrum, Denmark, he studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen from 1937 to 1942, where he was influenced abstract art and critical thought. One of Jorn’s other major contributions came after he and his friend, the artist Guy Debord, founded the Situationist International in 1957. As a member of social avant-garde revolutionary movements, Jorn often combined writing with images as a means of popular communication. During this same time, he began working on his masterpiece painting, simply titled Stalingrad, which used layers of paint to depict the famous Russian battle. Jorn continued laboring on the painting until his death on May 1, 1973 in Aarhus, Denmark. The Silkeborg Museum of Art was renamed the Museum Jorn in 2010 in his honor.»

Minimalism and conceptual art Francois Morellet

Francois Morellet (30 April 1926 – 10 May 2016) was a French contemporary painter, sculptor, and light artist. His early work prefigured minimal art and conceptual art, and he played a prominent role in the development of geometrical abstract art.After a short period of figurative/representational work, Morellet turned to abstraction in 1950 and he adopted a pictorial language of simple geometric forms: lines, squares and triangles assembled into two-dimensional compositions. In 1961, he was one of the founders of the Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel (GRAV), with fellow artists Francisco Sobrino, Horatio Garcia-Rossi, Hugo DeMarco, Julio Le Parc, Jean-Pierre Yvaral (the son of Victor Vasarely) and Joël Stein, François Molnar and Vera Molnar (the last two left the group shortly after). Morellet began at this time to work with neon tube lighting.
