NEWS: Now Streaming, November 2019

We've made it through October and now with November, chillier weather and the holidays are on the horizon which means more time indoors. No better excuse to experiment with some new art for your TV and first up (and especially for this weekend), we recommend checking out our Dia de los Muertos gallery which was our Featured Gallery earlier this week. Here are a few other suggestions for galleries to stream this month >> Nadar's Empire of the Dead Across the Eras Claude Monet Jellies Thanksgiving Halloween may be over, but our gallery Nadar's Empire of the Dead is a spooky new addition to our History category comprised of some of the first photographs ever taken of Paris's notorious underground network of catacombs from the 1860s. By request, we've also added Across the Eras, a compilation of various art movements throughout history in one place from Classical to Abstract for those who...

Featured Gallery: Dia de los Muertos

We've made it no secret, we LOVE the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. So much so that we've even created a gallery for it! Every year from October 31st-November 2nd, Mexico honors the deceased with a three-day celebration full of festivals, ofrendas (altars), marigolds, and visits to the cemetery where they enjoy food, sing songs and recall memories of loved ones. Ofrendas are first set up in homes, businesses and in cemeteries with the dead's favorite food or drink and belongings as a way to encourage them to return during this time. You'll also see marigolds everywhere as they believe their scent and bright colors guide the souls back to earth and to their altars. Simply put, it's a beautiful celebration with a beautiful meaning behind it which is why we wanted to bring it to the Artcast app. We do hope you enjoy the all vibrant...

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Henri Rousseau

WHO: Henri Rousseau WHAT: Painter WHERE: France WHEN: 21 May 1844 – 2 September 1910 Known as "Le Douanier" ("the custom's officer") amongst his peers due to this profession as a toll collector, Henri Rousseau was a self-taught painter who inspired Paris' avant-guard scene and generations of Surrealists from the end of the 19th century/beginning of the 20th century. His unique style was a direct result of him never having formally studied anatomy or perspective in art; instead he attempted to recreate works of art he saw in museums but incorporate his own interpretation, vivid colors and non-realistic scale which came to be known as the Naïve or Primitive movement. Heavily criticized during his lifetime amongst the more conservative artists who wrote his work off as childlike and flat, he still managed to catch the attention and inspire other greats such as Picasso, Max Jacob and Fernand Léger. Here is a sample of some...

Featured Gallery: Netsuke

We are obsessed with these diminutive wood and ivory sculptures called Netsuke (pronounced nets-keh) so we figured we should make an entire gallery dedicated to them! Invented in 17th century Japan as means to solve the dilemma for no pockets on a kimono, netsuke are essentially intricately carved toggles that were born out of necessity to fasten sagemono (pouches) but quickly snowballed into a fashion piece and literal works of art. These days, they are a highly sought-after collectors items with some of the greatest collections actually found outside of Japan. Themes craftsmen have explored in the design of netsuke range from nature and animals to gods and mythical beasts - some even being considered as talismans for their owners. Though a majority of netsuke were traditionally made from ivory and wood, they can practically be made out of any material that can be carved so you can also find ones that...

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Odilon Redon

WHO: Odilon Redon WHAT: Painter WHERE: France WHEN: 22 April 1840 – 6 July 1916 Odilon Redon, born Bertrand Redon to a prosperous family in Bordeaux, France, was a painter and pastellist well-known for his dark and fantastical works of art. He was part of the Symbolist movement which was related to the gothic component of Romanticism and Impressionism. In 1884 he shot to fame when Joris-Karl Huysmans published his cult novel Á rebours which featured a decadent aristocrat character who collected Redon's drawings. While his earlier works were inspired more by nightmares and dreams, he later on became interested in Buddhism and Hinduism which translated into works of art with the theme of "the triumph of light over darkness" according to art historian Michael Gibson. Check out some of his expressive works below. The painting featured at the top of this post is "Evocation of Roussel", painted by Redon in 1912.
