    They overran the house without loss of time.

    The unhappy FATIMA cried up to her:- 'Anne, Sister Anne, do you see anyone coming?'

    Then BLUE BEARD roared out so terribly that he made the whole house tremble.

    She used to creep away to the chimney-corner and seat herself among the cinders.

    Whereupon she instantly desired her partner to lead her to the KING and QUEEN.

    The Prime Minister was kept very busy during the next few weeks.

    He had been fasting for more than twenty-four hours, and lost no time in falling to.

    Soon they caught site of the castle in the distance.

    Ah! what a fright you have given me! she murmured

    They were constantly at war with the Cranes.

    Drawing his sword he rushed at the monster.

    Yet it was not so sweet as the song of the Syrens.

    They made haste to wallow down on all fours.

    On went the chariot, and King Pluto seemed greatly pleased to find himself once more in his own kingdom.

    But neither could Pan tell her what had become of Proserpina.

    The good Chiron taught his pupils how to play upon the harp.

    He caught one of them by the horn and the other by his screwed-up tail.

    In early 40s he prepared the project of Polish 20 zlotych note for the Bank of Poland (Bank Polski). This banknote (printed in England in 1942 but dated 1939) was ordered by Polish Government in Exile and was never issued.


    Dulac designed stamps and banknotes for Free France during World War II. This is Marianne de Londres (aks Marianne de Dulac) issued as a set of 20.
    The model was Lea Rixens, the wife of a friend of Dulac. The series is called de Londres because the stamps were first printed in London, but apparently not issued because of the war.  Produced/issued 1942 to 1946.

    Dulac was one of the designers of the Wilding series stamps, which were the first definitive stamps of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. He was responsible for the frame around the image of the Queen on the 1s, 1s 3d and 1s 6d values although his image of the Queen was rejected in favour of a photographic portrait by Dorothy Wilding to which he carried out some modifications by hand. He also designed the 1s 3d value stamp of the set issued to commemorate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, but he died just before it was issued.

  • 01/09/14--04:23: Adolphe Valette

  • Pierre Adolphe Valette (1876 – 1942) was a French Impressionist painter. His most acclaimed paintings are urban landscapes of Manchester, now in the collection of Manchester Art Gallery. Today, he is chiefly remembered as the painter L. S. Lowry’s tutor.



    Born in St Etienne in 1876, he trained at the Ecole Municipale de Beaux-Arts et des Arts Decoratifs in Bordeaux. He arrived in England for unknown reasons in 1904 and studied at the Birbeck Institute, now part of the University of London. In 1905 he travelled to the North West of England where he designed greetings cards and calendars for a Manchester printing company. He attended evening classes at Manchester Municipal School of Art and in 1907 he was invited to join the staff as a teacher.His French teaching style, painting by demonstration, was new to the United Kingdom.



    Lowry expressed great admiration for Valette, who taught him new techniques and showed him the potential of the urban landscape as a subject. He called him "a real teacher … a dedicated teacher". Lowry added: "I cannot over-estimate the effect on me of the coming into this drab city of Adolphe Valette, full of French impressionists, aware of everything that was going on in Paris."



    In 1920 Valette resigned from the Institute owing to ill health. He stayed in Lancashire for eight more years, teaching privately and painting in Manchester and Bolton. In 1928 he returned to Paris, and subsequently moved to Blacé en Beaujolais where he died in 1942.



    Valette's paintings are Impressionist, a style that suited the damp fogginess of Manchester. Manchester Art Gallery has a room devoted to him, where the viewer may compare some of his paintings with some of Lowry's, and judge to what extent Lowry's own style was influenced by him and by French Impressionism generally.

  • 01/15/14--05:49: Paul Cézanne - part 1
  • Note: This is intended to be a comprehensive series of posts on the works of Paul Cézanne, along the line of the recent Claude Monet series. Unfortunately it is becoming increasingly difficult to access images due to the copyrighting of images (ie. photographs of works) by institutions and family estates, rather than of the works themselves (which are out of copyright). On this basis it is not possible for me to feature artists like Picasso or Matisse at all, which is a shame.


    The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, for instance, own a great number of Cézanne’s key works, yet require permissions and fees for use of their images, even on a non-profit basis like this blog, and therefore I won’t be featuring those works.




    Paul Cézanne c1861
    Paul Cézanne was born in 1839 in Aix-en-Provence in the South of France, His father, Louis-Auguste Cézanne was the co-founder of a banking firm that prospered throughout the artist’s life, affording him financial security that was unavailable to most of his contemporaries and eventually resulting in a large inheritance.

    In 1852 Cézanne entered the Collège Bourbon (now Collège Mignet), where he met and became friends with Émile Zola, who was in a less advanced class, as well as Baptistin Baille – three friends who would come to be known as “les trois inseparables”. He stayed there for six years, though in the last two years he was a day scholar. In 1857 he began attending the Free Municipal School of Drawing in Aix, wher he studied drawing under Joseph Gibert, a Spanish monk. From 1858 to 1861, complying with his father’s wishes, Cézanne attended the law school of the University of Aix, while receiving drawing lessons.

    Going against the objections of his banker father, he committed himself to pursuing his artistic development and left Aix for Paris in 1861. He was strongly encouraged to make this decision by Zola, who was already living in the capital at the time. Eventually, his father reconciled with Cézanne and supported his choice of career, Cézanne later received an inheritance of 400,000 francs (£218, 363) from his father, which rid him of all financial worries.

    In Paris, Cézanne met the Impressionist Camille Pissarro. Initially the friendship formed in the mid-1860s between Pissarro and Cézanne was that of master and disciple, in which Pissarro exerted a formative influence on the younger artist. Over the course of the following decade their landscape painting excursions together, in Louveciennes and Pontoise, led to a collaborative working relationship between equals.


    Cézanne’s early work is often concerned with the figure in the landscape and portraiture, but later in his career he became more interested in working from direct observation and gradually developed a light, airy painting style. Nevertheless, in Cézanne’s mature work there is the development of a solidified, almost architectural style of painting. Throughout his life he struggled to develop an authentic observation of the seen world by the most accurate method of representing it in paint that he could find. To this end, he structurally ordered whatever he perceived into simple forms and colour planes. His statement “I want to make of Impressionism something solid and lasting like the art in the museums”, and his contention that he was recreating Poussin “after nature” underscored his desire to unite observation of nature with the permanence of classical composition.


    Cézanne was interested in the simplification of naturally occurring forms to their geometric essentials: he wanted to “treat nature by the cylinder, the sphere, the cone”. Additionally, Cézanne’s desire to capture the truth of perception led him to explore binocular vision graphically, rendering slightly different, yet simultaneous visual perceptions of the same phenomena to provide the viewer with an aesthetic experience of depth different from those earlier ideals of perspective in a particular single-point perspective. Cézanne’s innovations have propted critics to suggest such varied explanations as sick retinas, pure vision, and the influence of the steam railway.


    Cézanne’s paintings were shown in 1863 in the first exhibition of the Salon des Refusés, which displayed works not accepted by the jury of the official Paris Salon. The Salon rejected Cézanne’s submissions every year from 1864 to 1869. He continued to submit works to the Salon until 1882. In that year, through the intervention of fellow artist Antoine Guillemet, he exhibited Portrait of Louis-Auguste Cézanne, Father of the Artist, reading ‘l’Evénement’, 1866, his first and last successful submission to the Salon.


    Paul Cézanne 1866 The Artist's Father, reading "L'Événement" oil on canvas 198.5 x 119.3 cm National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
    Before 1895 Cézanne exhibited twice with the Impressionists (at the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874 and the third Impressionist exhibition in 1877). In later years a few individual paintings were shown at various venues, until 1895, when the Parisian dealer, Ambroise Vollard, gave the artist his first solo exhibition. Despite the increasing public recognition and financial success, Cézanne chose to work in increasing artistic isolation, usually painting in the south of France, in his beloved Provence, far from Paris.

    He concentrated on a few subjects and was equally proficient in each of these genres: still lifes, portaits, landscapes and studies of bathers. For the last, Cézanne was compelled to design from his imagination, due to a lack of available nude models. Like the landscapes, his portraits were drawn from that which was familiar, so that not only his wife and son, but local peasants, children, and his art dealer served as subjects. His still lifes are at once decorative in design, painted with thick, flat surfaces, yet with a weight reminiscent of Gustave Courbet. The ‘props’ for his works are still to be found as he left them, in his studio in the suburbs of modern Aix-en-Provence.

    Although religious images appeared less frequently in Cézanne’s later work, he remained a devout Roman Catholic and said, “When I judge art, I take my paintings and put it next to a God-made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art”.

    Cézanne’s paintings were not well received among the petty Bourgeoisie of Aix. In 1903 Henri Rochefort visited the auction of paintings that had been in Zola’s possession and published on 9 March 1903 in L’Intransigeant,a highly critical article entitled “Love for the Ugly”. Rochefort describes how spectators had supposedly experienced laughing fits, when seeing the paintings of “an ultra-Impressionist named Cézanne”. Erroneously believing that Cézanne’s paintings in fact represented “the art dear to Zola” (Rochefort’s Dreyusard arch-enemy), he drew connections between “Dreyfusard snobs,” so-called after the French officer who was accused but innocent of having sold defence plans to Germany, and Zola’s supposedly cherished artist, Cézanne, The public in Aix was outraged, and for many days, copies of L’Intransigeant appeared on Cézann’es door-mat with messages asking him to leave the town “he was dishonouring”.



    One day, Cézanne was caught in a storm while working in the field. Only after working for two hours under a downpour did he decide to go home; but on the way he collapsed - he was taken home by a passing driver. His old housekeeper rubbed his arms and legs to restore the circulation; as a result he regained consciousness. On the following day he intended to continue working, but later on he fainted; the model with whom he was working called for help; he was put to bed, and never left it. He died of pneumonia a few days later, on 22 October 1906. Cézanne was buried at the Saint-Pierre Cemetery in his hometown of Aix-en-Provence. Biographical notes adapted from Wikipedia.

He painted his first large early works directly onto the walls of a large room on the ground floor, then planted his easel in the yard in front of the house, at the farm, by the pond, along the alley of chestnut trees, creating a total of 36 oils and 17 watercolours that represented his family life.

  • 01/17/14--05:13: Paul Cézanne - part 2
  • Paul Cézanne 1862-64 Self-Portrait oil on canvas 46 x 38 cm Private Collection
    Paul Cézanne (1839 – 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavor to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne’s often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. The paintings convey Cézanne’s intense study of his subjects. Cézanne can be said to form a bridge between late 19thcentury Impressionism and the early 20th century’s new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. Both Matisse and Picasso are said to have remarked that Cézanne “is the father of us all.”

    Paul Cézanne (1839 – 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavor to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne’s often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. The paintings convey Cézanne’s intense study of his subjects.
