To begin with I would like to show you a still life paintings by Claude Monet and Edouard Manet.
Both artists have worked in the Impressionist style, which can be defined as a desire to connect still life with the environment, nature. The Impressionists abandoned complex of colorful tones, they were painting clean colors, achieving mixing these colors directly on the canvas, created the illusion depicting colored shadows. Here are paintings by Cézanne, Renoir, Van Gog.
Edouard Manet "Rose and cake" and " Two roses"
Edouard Manet "Roses" and "Clematis"
Claude Monet "Christmas roses" and "Chrysanthemums"
Claude Monet "Vase of tulips" and "Vase of peonies"
Cézanne "Fruit and flowers" and Auguste Renoir "Still Life"
Vincent Van Gog "Sunflowers" and "Irises"
I've chosen to you a few works by Russian artists of 19-20th centuries, and contemporaries as well. Isaak Levitan is one of the most well-known Russian artists began to paint his still lifes in 1880. I show you his modest painting, where he depicted simple bouquets of Cornflowers. Another artist Ivan Kramskoy was Levitan's contemporary. He is known as the author of large canvases, here is his still life "Phlox".
Isaak Levitan "Cornflowers" and Ivan Kramskoy "Phlox"
The artists Igor Grabar and Dmitry Nalbandian created their paintings in 30-50th of the last century. I like their still lifes, simple and at the same time elegant.
Vladimir Volosov and Vladimir Korkodym are our contemporaries, their works are made at the beginning of our century. I think "Country Still life" is especially lovely, it reminds me of my walks in the woods, picking berries and flowers.
Dmitry Nalbandian "Wild flowers" and Vladimir Korkodym " Flowers"
Did you like these Still lifes I selected to you? Whom of artists did you know and love? Thank you!
It's all for today. Happy coming Thanksgiving!

Con qué realisno están pintados. En algunos cuadros dan ganas de tocar las flores.ReplyDelete
Al ver los girasoles de Van Gog me he acrordado de esta que hice en marzo:
No sé si habrás visto alguna vez un campo de girasoles, es algo impresionante.
Gracias Nadezda por traernos el museo a casa:))

They are indeed stunning aren't they! LarryReplyDelete
Yes, they are, thank you, Larry!Delete
They are all very beautiful Nadezda, very hard to pick a favourite, but I really like the ‘Cornflowers’ by Levitan, good colours and details and I also really like Renoir’s paintings, he really had a sense for details!ReplyDelete
You're right, Helene, Renoir had a sense for details and colors. I love his portraits, the eyes of people are special.Delete
Thank you Nadezda for all you have shared of these Impressionist Artists. My knowledge of art is minimal, but I do appreciate beautiful paintings of lovely arrangements like these. I like The Renoir "Still Life" of dainty flowers in a delicately a patterned blue vase. Also, I think the informal, loosely arranged wild flowers of Dmitry Nalbandian are lovely.ReplyDelete
I tried to choose some Still lifes from many of them relying on my taste and glad you liked the painting by August Renoir and Dmitry Nalbandian. Thank you, Betty!Delete

I love Claude Monet and Edouard Manet,work and paintings!!

Dimi, you love both well known artists Monet and Manet, although their names are similar their works are different and each of them is interesting. Thank you!Delete
Nadezda so beautiful you showed us paintings of famous impressionist artists. I was especially impressed by the Russian artists which were totally unknown to me, but I fell in love with the Cornflower painting and the others are great too!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you liked some Russian artists, they are not such well known as French impressionists. Thank you, Janneke!Delete
