Paul Cézanne 1879-82 Self-Portrait oil on canvas Kunstmuseum Bern, Switzerland
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 19th century 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.”

Vintage Valentine's Cards

0
0

It's February 14th - St Valentine's Day, so it seems fitting to feature some vintage Valentine's cards today.

St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian Saints named Valentinus. Several martyrdom stories were invented for the various Valentines that belonged to February 14th, and added to later martyr histories.

The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In C18th England it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, confectionary, and for sending greetings cards known as "Valentines". Symbols employed include heart shapes, doves, flowers and winged cupids, Since the C19th hand-written valentines have given way to mass-produced cards.

John Singer Sargent - part 1

This is going to be an extremely large post on the works of painter John Singer Sargent, comprising of more than 1600 works, so I sincerely hope you find it interesting. So that it doesn't take too long I'll endeavour to post every other day. He will be familiar to many as a society portraitist, and he was very good at them too, but Sargent was also an inveterate traveller, and he recorded his travels through his work with flair and a lightness of touch.

1886 Self-Portrait oil on canvas 34.5 x 29.7 cm Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museums UK
Biography from:
H. Barbara Weinberg "John Singer Sargent (1856-1925)". In Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History. New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art www.metmuseum.org

The family of John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) had deep roots in New England. His grandfather, Winthrop Sargent IV, descended from one of the oldest colonial families, had failed in the merchant-shipping business in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and had moved his family to Philadelphia. There, his son Fitzwilliam Sargent beacme a physician and in 1850 married Mary Newbold Singer, daughter of a successful local merchant, The couple left Philadelphia for Europe in late summer 1854, seeking healthful climate and a distraction after the death a year earlier of their firstborn child. The Sargents' stay in Europe was meant to be temporary, but they became expatriates, passing winters in Florence, Rome, or Nice and summers in the Alps or other cooler regions. Their son John was born in Florence in January 1856.

Jon Sargent was given little regular schooling. As a result of his "Baedeker education," he learned Italian, French, and German. He studied geography, arithmetic, reading, and other disciplines under his father's tutelage, He also became an accomplished pianist. His mother, an amateur artist, encouraged him to draw, and her wanderlust furnished him with subjects. He enrolled for his first-documented formal art training during the winter of 1873-74 at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence. In spring 1874, Fitzwilliam Sargent resolved to nourish his son's talents in Paris, which had become the world's most powerful magnet for students.

In May 1874, Sargent entered the teaching atelier of a youthful, stylish painter, Carolus-Duran, a leading portraitist in Third Republic France who encouraged his students to paint immediately (rather than make preliminary drawings), to exploit broad planes of viscous pigment, and to preserve the freshness of the sketch in completed works. He also exhorted them to study artists who demonstrated painterly freedom: Frans Hals and Rembrandt; Sir Anthony van Dyck and Sir Joshua Reynolds; and. above all others. the Spanish master Diego Velázquez. The young American moved close to his teacher stylistically and became his protégé. There is almost no work by Sargent, beginning with his successful submissions to the Paris Salons as early as 1877, that does not reflect the manner of Carolus-Duran or the old masters of the painterly tradition.

Although Sargent painted, showed, and won praise for both portraits and subject pictures at the salons between 1877 and 1882, commissions for portraits increasingly demanded his attention and defined his reputation. Sargent's best-known portrait, Madame X, which he undertook without a commission, enlisted a palette and brushwork derived from Velázquez; a profile view that recalls Titian; and an unmodulated treatment of the face and figure inspired by the style of Édouard Manet and Japanese prints. The picture's novelty and quality notwithstanding, it was a succès de scandale in the 1884 Salon, provoking criticism for Sargent's indifference to conventions of pose, modelling, and treatment of space, even twenty years after Manet's pioneering efforts.


1883-84 Madame X (Madame Pierre Gautreau) oil on canvas 208.6 x 109.9 cm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
Having gained notoriety rather than fame, Sargent decided that London, where he had thought of settling as early as 1882, would be more hospitable than Paris, In spring 1886, he moved to England for the rest of his life. Fearful that Sargent might sacrifice characterisation to a show of "French style," which they associated with Madame X and, perforce, disliked, English patrons at first withheld commissions. With time and creative energy to spare, Sargent spent several summers engaged in Impressionist projects. These were nourished by his contact with Monet, whom he visited several times at Giverny, beginning in early summer 1885, and by the chance to work outdoors during the summers of 1885 and 1886 in the Cotswold village of Broadway,Worcestershire.

Sargent's most ambitious Broadway canvas was the ravishing Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose (Tate Britain, London). The painting's display at the Royal Academy in 1887 assuaged the doubts of english critics, and its acquisition for the nation augured well for his career in London. Although English patrons still hesitated to sit for Sargent during the late 1880s, Americans were eager to do so during his visits to the United States between 1887 and 1889. Reassured by the conspicuous quality of Sargent's portraits, British patrons finally responded with numerous commissions during the 1890s. While his subjects included businessmen and their families, artists, and performers, Sargent flourished particularly as a purveyor of likenesses to the English aristocracy. He maintained a dialogue with tradition, creating grand-manner pendants to family heirlooms by van Dyck, Reynolds, and others. American patrons also continued to call upon Sargent's skills.

1885-86 Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose oil on canvas 174 x 153.7 cm Tate, London

After a turn of the century, Sargent grew tired of the demands of portrait painting. He was constantly preoccupied with mural paintings for the Boston Public Library, Boston;s Museum of Fine Arts, and the Harry Elkins Widener Memorial Library at Harvard University, for which he had received a series of commissions beginning in 1890. Travel studies in watercolour also came to occupy more of his time and became a new source of critical and financial support. Beginning in 1903, he showed such pictures to acclaim in London and New York, stimulating a great demand for them. Sargent engineered his career so astutely that by 1907, when he pledged not accept any more portrait commissions, he had established a solid reputation as a watercolourist.

Part 2 of citrus fruit crate labels from the USA, spanning the early 1900's to the 1930's. These colourful illustrated labels were printed by lithography and were designed to be attached to the ends of wooden fruit crates. They usually identified the manufacturer, the type, class and origin of the fruit. Some were generic - overprinted by different companies or brands.

885c John Singer Sargent in his Paris studio. Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
John Singer Sargent (1866 - 1925) was an American artist, considered the "leading portrait painter of his generation" for his evocation of Edwardian era luxury. During his career he created approximately 900 oil paintings and more than 2000 watercolours, as well as countless sketches and charcoal drawings. His oeuvre documents worldwide travel, from Venice to the Tyrol, Corfu, the Middle East, Montana, Maine and Florida, amongst others.

This is part-5 of a 23-part post on the works of John Singer Sargent. For full biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 4 also.

1883-84 Madame X
It was a dress that caused the greatest stir of Sargent's career. Painting a portrait of Madame Pierre Gautreau, Sargent emphasised her daring personal style, showing the right strap of her gown slipping from her shoulder. When finally displayed at the Salon of 1884, the portrait received scathing reviews and the subject and her family were mortified. Sargent repainted the shoulder strap and kept the work for over thirty years. When, eventually, he sold it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, he commented, "I suppose it is the best thing I have done," but asked the Museum to disguise the sitter's name.
