Its subjects are the young girls who dress in their ballet attire. My concern is to capture the mood and atmosphere of the casual and light moment of the girls. It is challenging. It was achieved through the natural combination of color and water. Liu Yi è un acquerellista Cinese* nato a Shanghai, Cina. Ha ottenuto il suo Bachelor in belle arti presso l’università di Hua Dong.

  7. Carl Larsson | Realist painter

    Carl Larsson | Realist painter Carl Larsson (1853-1919) is one of the most famous Swedish artists and perhaps the most beloved people. He is known for his watercolor paintings of idyllic family life. Carl Larsson was a painter and interior designer, representative of the Arts and Crafts Movement. His many paintings include oils, watercolors and frescoes. He considered his finest work to be Midvinterblot (Midwinter Sacrifice), a large wall mural now displayed inside the Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts. Larsson was born in 'Gamla stan', the old town in Stockholm, in 1853. His parents were extremely poor and his childhood sad and miserable. However, at the age of thirteen his teacher at the school for poor children urged him to seek entry into the 'principskola' of the Stockholm Academy of Fine Arts where he also got accepted. The first years at the 'principskola' he felt socially inferior, confused and shy. In 1869, sixteen years old, he got promoted to the 'antique school' of the same academy. There Carl Larsson became more sure of him self and he even became a central figure in student life. After several years as illustrator for books, magazines and newspapers Carl Larsson also spent several rather frustrating years in Paris as a hardworking artist without any success. The turning point in Carl Larsson's life came the year 1882 when he in Grez, a Scandinavian artist colony outside Paris, met Karin Bergöö (1859-1928), who soon should be his wife. One could almost call it a metamorphose in Carl Larsson's life. In Grez Carl Larsson painted some of his most important works - now in watercolor and very different from the more pretentious oil painting technique. Carl and Karin Larsson reared eight children and Karin and the children became Carl Larsson'sfavourite models and many of those watercolours are now loved and cherished all over the world. In 1888 the young family by gift got a little house, named Little Hyttnäs in Sundborn from Karin´s father Adolf Bergöö. Carl and Karin formed and furnished this house after their own very special artistic taste and also for the needs of the growing family. Through Carl Larsson's paintings and his books this house has been one of the most famous artist-homes in the world. The descendants of Carl and Karin Larsson now own this house and they are happy to be able to keep the house open for tourists each summer from May until October. Larsson's popularity increased considerably with the development of colour reproduction technology in the 1890s, when the Swedish publisher Bonnier published books written and illustrated by Larsson and containing full colour reproductions of his watercolours, titled A Home. However, the print runs of these rather expensive albums did not come close to that produced in 1909 by the German publisher Karl Robert Langewiesche (1874-1931). Langewiesche's choice of watercolours, drawings and text by Carl Larsson, titled Das Haus in der Sonne (The House in the Sun), immediately became one of the German publishing industry's best-sellers of the year - 40,000 copies sold in three months, and more than 40 print runs have been produced up to 2001. Carl and Karin Larsson declared themselves overwhelmed by such success. Larsson also drew several sequential picture stories, thus being one of the earliest Swedish comic creators. Carl Larsson considered his monumental works, such as his frescos in schools, museums and other public buildings, to be his most important works. His last monumental work, Midvinterblot (Midwinter Sacrifice), a 6-by-14-metre (20ft×46ft) oil painting completed in 1915, had been commissioned for a wall in the National Museum in Stockholm (which already had several of his frescos adorning its walls). However, upon completion, it was rejected by the board of the museum. The fresco depicts the blót of King Domalde at the Temple of Uppsala. Decades later, the painting was purchased and placed in the National Museum. | © Wikipedia Carl Larsson (Stoccolma, 28 maggio 1853 - Sundborn, Falun, 22 gennaio 1919) è stato un pittore e illustratore Svedese. Nato in una famiglia indigente, studiò dapprima in una scuola per bambini poveri, poi nel 1866, all'età di tredici anni, fu ammesso all'Accademia Reale Svedese delle Arti di Stoccolma. Durante i primi anni in questa prestigiosa istituzione Larsson, timido e socialmente inferiore rispetto a molti suoi compagni, trovò difficoltà ad ambientarsi; tuttavia, col passare degli anni riuscì a mettersi in luce grazie al suo talento, diventando una figura centrale dell'accademia. Dopo aver lavorato alcuni anni come illustratore per libri e giornali, nel 1880 si trasferì a Parigi, dove rimase fino al 1885 passando anni frustranti come artista senza successo. Fu proprio a Parigi che nel 1882 incontrò l'artista Karin Bergöö, che presto diventò sua moglie. Questo fu un punto di svolta nella vita di Larsson, che cominciò a dipingere le sue opere più importanti, abbandonando la pittura ad olio, fino ad allora la tecnica da lui maggiormente utilizzata, per realizzare degli acquerelli. Nel 1888 la coppia si trasferì nel piccolo villaggio svedese di Sundborn, presso Falun, in una casa che fu decorata ed arredata rispecchiando il loro gusto artistico; i loro eredi hanno trasformato questa casa in un museo che è ancora oggi visitabile. Carl e Karin Larsson ebbero sette figli; i suoi familiari divennero i soggetti preferiti di Larsson per realizzare delicate composizioni ad acquerello in cui, spesso con fine senso umoristico, descrive momenti di vita domestica a Sundborn. La sua opera influenzò diversi artisti svedesi, in particolare la pittrice Fanny Brate. La sua popolarità aumentò incredibilmente con i miglioramenti tecnici della stampa a colori: negli anni '90 l'editore svedese Bonnier pubblicò libri scritti ed illustrati da lui e contenenti riproduzioni dei suoi acquerelli, poi nel 1909 l'editore tedesco Langewiesche pubblicò una sua raccolta di acquerelli e disegni intitolata La Casa nel Sole che vendette decine di migliaia di copie. Larsson inoltre disegnò parecchie storie ad immagini in sequenza, diventando così uno dei primi creatori svedesi di fumetti. Tuttavia per Larsson le sue realizzazioni più importanti furono le grandi pitture decorative in musei ed altri edifici pubblici, come gli affreschi al Teatro dell'Opera ed al Museo Nazionale di Belle Arti di Stoccolma. Questi lavori non sempre furono ben considerati dai critici d'arte del tempo: Midvinterblot (Sacrificio di Pieno Inverno), rappresentante re Dómaldi accondiscendente ad essere sacrificato, era una imponente opera di 6 x 14 metri realizzata nel 1915 e commissionata per una parete nel Museo Nazionale di Belle Arti di Stoccolma, che aveva già diversi suoi affreschi ad adornare le pareti, ma una volta completata fu rifiutata dalla direzione del museo, che la comprò soltanto nel 1997. Nelle sue memorie Larsson dichiarò la sua amarezza e il suo disappunto per il rifiuto della pittura che lui stesso considerava essere il suo risultato più grande; nelle stesse memorie riconobbe che le immagini della sua famiglia furono la parte più immediata e durevole del suo lavoro, perché espressione genuina della sua personalità, dei suoi sentimenti più profondi e di tutto il suo amore per la moglie e i figli.

  8. Karl Bang | Fantasy painter

    Karl Bang, 1935 | Visionary /Fantasy painter 龐卡 Pang Ka (Karl Bang) was born in Bong Ka, Shanghai in 1935. He was formally trained by the master artists of Chinese painting and he also formally trained in the European painting tradition in France and Belgium. These multiple styles led to Karl Bang's multi-cultural blending of the traditional Chinese artistic discipline with the more personally expressive European style, and later also included traditions from around the entire globe. During Mao Tse-tung's Cultural Revolution in China, Karl was obligated to paint only the propaganda images the government demanded him to paint. However, in 1984 he was allowed to emigrate to the United States, where Karl was free to paint his one heart's passion - beautiful women, goddesses, and the feminine archetype - from various races and cultures. This central theme to all of Karl Bang's work is exquisitely developed and refined in each of his images. For Karl, painting women goes much deeper than their outer beauty. He sees women as epitomizing the gentler instincts of humankind - nurturing, gentility, truth, and inner strength. Karl Bang, vero nome 龐卡 Pang Ka, è nato a Shanghai nel 1935. Nel 1984 l'artista insieme alla sua famiglia si trasferiscono negli Stati Uniti, dove rielabora il suo linguaggio espressivo, assorbendo gradualmente elementi dell'arte occidentale. Bang come ogni artista caratterizza la sua opera con un proprio distinguibile segno: esprime la bellezza e il mistero di mondi esotici e integra i soggetti floreali con sensuali figure femminili dal volto di porcellana. I fiori sbocciano nei suoi dipinti combinati in un bouquet di fantasia. FOR MORE SUCH ARTISTS' & ARTWORKS FOLLOW SUJITH PUTHRAN
