  • 06/22/16--06:39: Railway Posters – part 1
  • The British Railway network flourished between 1830 and 1870. By 1852 there were over 7000 miles of rail track in England and Scotland, and every significant centre could rely on rail communication.


    An early illustration showing the proliferation of advertising posters targeting rail passengers.

     

    Britain’s railways transformed the landscape both physically and culturally, producing new opportunities for commerce and travel, and fuelling industrial and economic expansion. Goods could be transported at unprecedented rates, and it was British technologies and engineers that were responsible for railway construction throughout the world.

    Two early examples of railway posters:

    London and South Western Railway
    1895 East Coast Route

    At home, major cities, such as Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Bristol were now interconnected.







    Until the creation of the railway, the fastest speed known to man had been that of a galloping horse. Now, an express train could reach speeds of 80 miles an hour. Newspapers printed in London in the early hours could be loaded on a train to be sold that morning in the provinces.


    This large series on railway poster deals mainly with what could be called the golden age of the railway poster, where the sun always shone and the British seaside was as glamorous as the Côte d’Azur. Many talented and famous artists like Frank Newbould, John Hassall and Terence Cuneo worked on these posters – here’s an example by Royal Academician Sir Frank Brangwyn RA RWS RBA:

  • 07/15/16--05:48: Camille Pissarro part - 1
  • 1852c Camille Pissarro in Caracas

    Jacob Abraham Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was born on the island of St. Thomas in the Danish West Indies. His father was of Portuguese Jewish descent and held French Nationality. At the age of 12, Pissarro was sent to a boarding school in France, where he developed an early appreciation of the French masters. After completing his education Pissarro returned to St. Thomas where he was initially involved on the family mercantile business.


    In 1849 Pissarro made the acquaintance of Danish artist Fritz Melbye, who encouraged him in his artistic endeavors. In 1852 Pissarro and Melbye left St. Thomas for Venezuela, where they lived and worked for the next few years.

    In 1855 Pissarro returned to Paris, studying at the École des Beaux-Arts and Académie Suisse and working closely with painters Camille Corot and Gustave Courbet, honing his skills and experimenting with new approaches to art. Pissarro eventually fell in with a group of young artists, including Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne, who shared his interests and questions. The work of these artists was not accepted by the French artistic establishment, which excluded non-traditional painting from the official Salon exhibitions.

    Though Pissarro kept a studio in Paris, he spent much of his time in the outskirts. He preferred to work in the open air rather than the studio, painting scenes of village life and the natural world.

    During this period he became involved with his mother’s maid, Julie Vellay, with whom he would have eight children and eventually marry in 1871. Their family life was interrupted by the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71, which forced them to flee to London.

    Returning to his home in France at the end of the conflict, Pissarro discovered that the majority of his existing body of work had been destroyed. He quickly rebounded from this setback and reconnected with his artists friends, including Cézanne,  Renoir and Degas.


    In 1873 Pissarro established a collective of 15 artists with the goal of offering an alternative to the Salon. The following year, the group held their first exhibition. The unconventional content and style shocked critics and helped to define Impressionism as an artistic movement. For his part, Pissarro exhibited five paintings, including “Hoar Frost.” They would hold several more exhibitions over the coming years, though the group slowly began to drift apart.

    By the 1880s Pissarro had moved into the Post-Impressionist period, returning to some of his earlier themes and exploring new techniques such as Pointillism.

    He also forged new friendships with artists including Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, and was an early admirer of Vincent Van Gogh. While in keeping with his life-long interest in innovation, Pissarro’s turning away from Impressionism contributed to the general decline of the movement, which he had influenced greatly.

    In his later years, Pissarro suffered from a recurring eye infection that prevented him from working outdoors for much of the year. As a result of this disability, he often painted while looking out of the window of a hotel room. He painting many series of views of Paris by this method.


    Pissarro died in Paris in November 1903, and is buried in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.


    I hope the story of Pissarro’s life and work will be of interest because it will be a major series running over the next few weeks. Though I haven’t included absolutely every piece of Pissarro’s work, I will however be featuring well over a thousand examples, the better to understand his legacy.

  • 1852-54 Camille Pissarro Self-Portrait
    oil on canvas 31 x 28.5 cm
    National Gallery of Denmark

    Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was a Danish-French Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter born on the island of St. Thomas in the Danish West Indies (now the US Virgin Islands). His importance resides in his contributions to the Impressionist movements. He studied from great forerunners including Gustave Courbet and Camille Corot. He later studied and worked alongside Georges Seurat and Paul Signac when he took on the Neo-Impressionist style at the age of 54.


    Pissarro is the only artist to have shown in all eight Paris Impressionist exhibitions between 1874 and 1886. He acted as a father-figure, not only to the Impressionists, but to all four of the major Post-Impressionists, Georges Seurat, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin.


    I hope the story of Pissarro’s life and work is of interest because it is a major series running over the next few weeks. Though I haven’t included absolutely every piece of Pissarro’s work, I am featuring well over a thousand examples, the better to understand his legacy.



    This is part 2 of a major 21-part series on the works of Camille Pissarro. For a fuller biography and for earlier works, see Part 1 also.

  • 07/21/16--04:15: Camille Pissarro part - 4

  • 1874 Camille Pissarro (right)
    with Paul Cézanne (centre)

    Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) was a Danish-French Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter born on the island of St. Thomas in the Danish West Indies (now the US Virgin Islands). His importance resides in his contributions to the Impressionist movements. He studied from great forerunners including Gustave Courbet and Camille Corot. He later studied and worked alongside Georges Seurat and Paul Signac when he took on the Neo-Impressionist style at the age of 54.


    Pissarro is the only artist to have shown in all eight Paris Impressionist exhibitions between 1874 and 1886. He acted as a father-figure, not only to the Impressionists, but to all four of the major Post-Impressionists, Georges Seurat, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin.


    I hope the story of Pissarro’s life and work is of interest because it is a major series running over the next few weeks. Though I haven’t included absolutely every piece of Pissarro’s work, I am featuring well over a thousand examples, the better to understand his legacy.



    This is part 4 of a major 21-part series on the works of Camille Pissarro. For a fuller biography see part 1, and for earlier works, see Parts 1 to 3 also.
