Arcadia is an actual region of Antient Greece, a series of valleys surrounded by high mountains and therefore difficult of access. In very ancient times, the people of Arcadia were known to be rustic folk who led an unsophisticated yet happy life in the natural fertility of their valleys and foothills. Soon, however, their down-to-earth culture came to be closely associated with their traditional singing and pipe playing, an activity they used to pass the time as they herded their animals. Their native god was Pan.In the seventeenth century, the French painter Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) used this pictorial tradition to paint one of his most famous canvasses, known as "The Arcadian shepherds" or as "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" (1647). This painting represents four Arcadians, in a meditative and melancholy mood, symmetrically arranged on either side of a tomb. One of the shepherds kneels on the ground and reads the inscription on the tomb: ET IN ARCADIA EGO, which can be translated either as "And I [= death] too (am) in Arcadia" or as "I [= the person in the tomb] also used to live in Arcadia." The second shepherd seems to discuss the inscription with a lovely girl standing near him. The third shepherd stands pensively aside. From Poussin's painting, Arcadia now takes on the tinges of a melancholic contemplation about death itself, about the fact that our happiness in this world is very transitory and evanescent. Even when we feel that we have discovered a place where peace and gentle joy reign, we must remember that it will end, and that all will vanish.

This is a cool thread, let's revive it. :)

Ágost Elek Canzi (1808-1866) Wine Harvest near Vác [click for larger pic]
1859
Oil on canvas, 117 x 175 cm
Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest


In the first half of nineteenth century, intellectual life in Hungary turned towards the peasantry with increasing interest, and there was a great flowering of folk plays. Hungarian artists often painted gay feasts in the style of stage scenery. One of these in this picture by Ágost Canzi, which even in his lifetime appeared in polychrome and monochrome reproductions. August Canzi was born in Wien-Baden, studied in Paris and from 1846 settled in Pest. The War of Independence filled him with Hungarian national sentiment, and he even took to signing his pictures as Ágost in the Hungarian way. The gay vintage procession is carrying a Hungarian flag. With this seemingly unimportant detail, the painter wished to express the patriotic feelings of the people at a time of great oppression.

I like this painting because the people all have very distinct personalities. Technically it is most difficult to render people, because unlike buildings and landscapes people have emotions and characters. The proud little children, the romantic couple embracing, the shy girl carrying a jug, the patriotic man with the flag, the drunken man dancing (probably my favorite character haha), the dumb gypsy band in their garish clothes- everyone is a part of the scene yet feeling their own way about it.

This site (http://www.kfki.hu/~arthp/keptar/) is a good source of European paintings. :)

Hey Adelaide, are you a monarchist, or what? :) I know you are, so I'm guessing there's also an intellectual reason behind your choosing of that specific painting as Fragonard was the painter of the royalty, and of the style Marie Antoinette so loved and cherished.

Pushkin, what's interesting is that the first picture "Oath of the Horatii" you have pasted is the exact opposite style -both stylistically and politically- of what Adelaide had posted earlier by Fragonard. David was one of the revolutionaries and his style is very didactic and severely Neo-Classical, whereas Fragonard and his Rococo colleagues were painting scenes of court life exclusively for the members of the court. That's a good contrast, especially to have the two prominent examples of the two rival movements right after the other.

Why thank you! Although I'm somewhat of a Monarchist myself; I still like the heroism and military prowess seen in much of neo-Classical paintings. In fact religious and military/warfare are my two favorite(but by no means only) themes in art. :D

I agree. I think the Neo-Classical style is much stronger and fresh. Personally, I cannot stand the pastelles of Fragonard and his colleagues and neverending landscapes seem a bit too much. But then, that's what the court was asking for. :)

As for religious art, I think it is art in it's purest form for the most part; be it pagan or Christian. Religious art has that quality about it that is inspiring and hard to achieve in most other subjects. I don't even want to talk about Modern Art!

I couldn't agree with you more. Of course I'm biased towards more Christian themed art. :D

I agree with the 19th century Russian art critic Vladimir Stasov(1824-1906) that art should serve great ideals; basically give visual expression to great and eternal ideals. Art should also express the soul of the nation; particularly the ways and traditions of its people(often the common people in his view). His views influenced the art of Ilia Repin; whose Cossack paintings I posted earlier but also did works like these

Me neither; I detest Modern "art". Nothing but immature rubbish; in fact many of the artists even try to make it ugly on purpose. Somehow thats "creativity".

I must say rusalka, you sure do know your art. I find that an admirable quality in a woman. :D

Really? I didn't know that. I saw in it in a history book I have and I very much like it.


I noticed that as well! And Pushkin claims to be a monarchist. Neoclassicism... Bleh. Reminds me of the Revolution.

I'm still a monarchist, but I do admire the major themes and tenets of Neo-classical art. I especially like number one in this list:

http://virtual.park.uga.edu/~232/voc/neoclassicism.voc.html

Neoclassicism combines the following tenets:

1. a regard for tradition and reverence for the classics, with an accompanying distrust of innovation

2. a sense of literature as art--that is, as something "artificed" or "artificial," made by craft; hence the value put on "rules," conventions, "decorum," the properties of received genres.

3. a concern for social reality, and the communal commonplaces of thought which hold it together.

4. a concern for "nature"--or the way things are (and should be). This relates back to the distrust of innovation and inherent conservatism of neoclassicism. The artistic rules of old, for instance, Pope describes as having been "discovered, not devised" and are "Nature methodized"; so too, "Nature and Homer" are "the same" (Essay on Criticism 88ff., 135). This belief in "nature" implies a conviction that there is a permanent, universal way things are (and should be), which obviously entails fundamental political and ethical commitments.

5. a concern with "pride" as the root of threats to the above. We might see pride as in part standing for individual self assertion against the status quo ("nature"). Pope:

Of all the causes which conspire to blind
Man's erring judgment, and misguide the mind,
What the weak head with strongest bias rules,
Is pride, the never-failing vice of fools.

Another interesting website about Neo-Classicism in 18th and 19th century France:

http://www.nga.gov/collection/gallery/gg56/gg56-over1.html

With the revolution, French painting resumed its moral and political purpose and embraced the style known as neoclassicism. Even before 1789, popular taste had begun to turn away from the disarming, lighthearted subjects of rococo; as revolution neared, artists increasingly sought noble themes of public virtue and personal sacrifice from the history of ancient Greece or Rome. They painted with restraint and discipline, using the austere clarity of the neoclassical style to stamp their subjects with certitude and moral truth.


Indeed. I maybe a Monarchist, but I still oppose the often decadent nature of the courts and their arts. Indeed, I am a typical Slavophile Monarchist; that is one who believes in a monarch yet has disdain for the aristocracy and love for the common man.



But, of course, the Roman Empire is fascinating (though I don't much care for ancient Greece.)

Really? I've always prefered Greece to Rome. I especially admire Ancient Sparta. :D

(Just kidding, Pushkin... Of course your preference in art doesn't (usually) dictate your political views, though mine go hand in hand with each other. :) )

Well my political views often do go hand in hand with my artistic tastes. Like I said, I am a Monarchist but I do believe in the virtues expounded by Neo-classical art; especially one of heroism, self-sacrifice, and public virtue.

Although if it makes you feel better, I largely appreciate art from the Romantic era; which was in rejection of Neo-Classicism. :D ;)

PS: Yes I knew you were joking to being with. :D

"Idun and the Apples" by J. Doyle Penrose Unfortunately, I cannot post this painting. Idun is the Norse goddess who renews the Gods each day with the nourishment of her apples. She is also the goddess of knowledge. This would be a better patron than Skadi in my mind. Four gods are represented as warriors around Idun (pronounced Idoon in English). Two are recieving the apple, two are on watch. Each is positioned as if they were a wolf and member of a pack. In each it is possible to read their mind's at that moment.

Bosch's vision of Hell from the Garden of Earthly Delights.

Hieronymous Bosch's familiy name was van Aken, suggesting that his ancestors came to Holland from the German town of Aachen.
In 1430-1 appears the first certain reference to Bosch's grandfather, Jan van Aken, who died in 1454. Jan had five sons, at least four of whom were painters; one of these, Anthonius van Aken [died c.1478], was the father of Hieronymous Bosch.

EYTYXEITE!
Dear Fellows, here is my favorite painting I'm in possession since very long.
It is "HELLAS FIGHTING" oil on canvas signed by TONIS ATHANASIADIS ( GR ) a self-teached portraitist.
The Painter refuge to use models except in this work; here the model is the daughter of the Greek Primeminister during last World War's era, IRIS LOGOTHETOPULU and it was paint during the end of war ( 1944 ).
This painting has a very wide reputation in Hellas made often covers for magazines etc. It is published many times in Hellenic newspapers and is made also political poster from Hellenic Nationalistic Organizations as it expresses a strong national feeling. It is also exhibited in "Hellenic National Foundation" as a "parlante" example of modern Hellenic Painting.
Unfortunately, the Painter com. suicide in 1960, when my Mother, very honest to my Father, refuge to accept his love for her.
Poor Painter...

Karl XII:s likfärd.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c0/Karl_XIIs_likf%C3%A4rd_%281884%29%2C_m%C 3%A5lning_av_Gustaf_Cederstr%C3%B6m_%281 845-1933%29.jpg

Of course, this is Romantic period, and is one of the only exceptions to my general distaste for the Romantic. It is clear that Cederström modelled Karl's face after the death mask, which I have seen. It's quite an eery experience to be almost standing face to face with Karl XII.

No. I can't pick just one. There are so many wonderful paintings that I'd never be able to make up my mind. So, I'll have to narrow the field just slightly by saying: almost anything by Albert Bierstadt, or Thomas Cole, or Charles Marion Russell, or Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, or.............. Well, you get the idea.

Modern art for me, I find it more challenging and stimulating. The only thing that makes trips to NYC bearable for me are trips to the Witney and the Guggenheim. I love Edward Hopper's work, his paintings have such a sense of desolation and eerieness,I can feel lonely, just by looking at them. I also love Schnabel,Lichtenstein ( for his sense of whimsy),oh and Kandinsky for his rapturous colours; I'm off to the Tate London in two weeks to see his exhibition there.

When I am in my painting, I'm not aware of what I'm doing. It's only after a sort of "get acquainted" period that I see what I have been about. I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.

I can't say I have a fovorite painting... there are just too many that would qualify.

I found the following two works by Mijo Kovacic (sorry, no diacriticals) on the Web site for the Croatian Museum of Naive Art:

It's a fascinating painting, but I wouldn't call it photographic. The expressions are too uniformly stylized, like they are with many artists. Even the cat is smiling. Renoir was one who seemed to draw the same mouth on all his subjects... it doesn't mean he was not one of the greats, but it's just an observation...

There are many pictures of them on the internet, but I can hardly find good quality ones.

Here are two random examples:

Pinkie and the Blue Boy.

We have gold-framed reproductions of these portraits in our home.

"It’s the classic boy meets girl story. Married by a curator/collector in 1927 resulting in a relationship cemented by sentimentalism; Thomas Gainsborough’s The Blue Boy 1770 and Sir Thomas Lawrence’s Pinkie 1794 have been eternally entwined in the collective consciousness of the wigs and keys crowd since the early twentieth century. They are the subjects of endless reproductions, porcelain figurines, commemorative plates and all manner of kitsch. Two youths betrothed to one another by the place they shared on a museum wall. The girl in pink and the boy in blue; how perfect is that?"

Frampton’s painting depicts a young soldier and his companion kneeling to pray at a wayside shrine before he goes off to war. He wears the uniform of a private in the French infantry. The background of the picture depicts a section of the Breton coastal landscape at Camaret-sur-Mer where the artist had spent some time in 1911.

Jacobus Hendrik (Henk) Pierneef (usually referred to as Pierneef) (13 August 1886 Pretoria – 4 October 1957 Pretoria),[1] was a South African landscape artist, generally considered to be one of the best of the old South African masters. His distinctive style is widely recognised and his work was greatly influenced by the South African landscape.

Most of his landscapes were of the South African highveld, which provided a lifelong source of inspiration for him. Pierneef's style was to reduce and simplify the landscape to geometric structures, using flat planes, lines and colour to present the harmony and order in nature. This resulted in formalised, ordered and often-monumental view of the South African landscape, uninhabited and with dramatic light and colour.

Pierneef's work can be seen worldwide in many private, corporate and public collections, including the Africana Museum, Durban Art Gallery, Johannesburg Art Gallery, King George VI Art Gallery, Pierneef Museum and the Pretoria Art Gallery.

Here is a comprehensive page on Pierneef http://www.missmoss.co.za/2011/02/15/pierneef/

Wow! Yet another artist I've never heard of, but what breathtaking paintings. :)

Alice, you can find a lot of european art in the youtube channel "Faces of Ancient Europe"

For example, Anna Ancher (1859–1935):

One of my favourites from his needle paintings is Four Seasons (in the videos above it seems to be named Celebration): http://laliquegoldenembroideries.com/albums/fourseasons/default.html So amazing details!!!
