Re: DD Favorite Art Gallery - Yu Youhan - Chairman Mao
« Reply #165 on: March 10, 2018, 07:21:55 AM »
How about a bit of Communist Art this morning from a famous Chinese Pop artist?

It would appear that Chairman Mao was a very important figure in his life.

What a wonderful and amazing world we live in. We have to do something to save it and get this runaway to Mars idea or somewhere else out of minds.  :-\

It may be old fashioned but it sure is easier on the environment.

Re: DD Favorite Art Gallery - Maximilien Luce
« Reply #175 on: June 06, 2018, 05:23:58 AM »
Maximilien Luce (13 March 1858 – 6 February 1941) was a prolific French Neo-impressionist artist, known for his paintings, illustrations, engravings, and graphic art, and also for his anarchist activism. Starting as an engraver, he then concentrated on painting, first as an Impressionist, then as a Pointillist, and finally returning to Impressionism.

A favorite of mine by the master, backround setting on my PC for July.  :icon_sunny: :icon_sunny: :emthup:


                         


Honored for his distinct style and pioneering role among Jewish artists, Marc Chagall painted dream-like subjects rooted in personal history and Eastern European folklore. He worked in several mediums, including painting, printmaking, and book illustration, and his stained glass windows can be seen in New York, France, and Jerusalem. Chagall arrived in Paris in 1910 and began experimenting with Cubism, befriending painters Robert Delaunay and Fernand Léger. Chagall’s style has been described as a hybrid of Cubism, Fauvism, and Symbolism, and his supernatural subjects are thought to have significantly influenced the Surrealists. Though he actively engaged in the Parisian artistic community, art for Chagall was first and foremost a means of personal expression. He preferred to be considered separately from other artists, his imagery and allegory uniquely his own.

This one's for Surly.


                               

                                         
                           

  Koen Hauser (1972) is currently based in Leiden. Hauser frequently uses existing photographs and archives in his work, in which he often constructs alternative realities, worlds within worlds. Hauser studied Social Psychology at the University in Leiden from 1992-1996. Two years later he went to the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, later moving on to the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Hauser's photos have been published in numerous magazines and his work has been exhibited at Galerie Ron Mandos, GEM, Historisch Museum Rotterdam; Frans Hals Museum and l'Institut Néerlandais in Paris.

Wow.

Those lines. Completely counter-intuitive to what you expect from a nude form. "Alternative realities," indeed. Just remarkable.

Now I have to do a search on this guy!
