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.

This new gallery is a curated selection of works by Germany’s most well-known painters from the 16th century through the 20th century such as Hans Holbein the Younger, Peter von Hess, Kandinsky, Casper David Friedrich and Franz Marc. The collection style spans from Renaissance to Expressionism and is a wonderful introduction to all the amazing artwork to come out of  this corner of Europe.

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Rachel Ruysch

WHO: Rachel Ruysch WHAT: Painter WHERE: Northern Netherlands WHEN: 3 June 1664 – 12 August 1750 Rachel Ruysch is best known for her moody and dramatic still life paintings. The daughter of a celebrated anatomist, botanist, and collector (who was also the head of Amsterdam's botanical garden!), Ruysch was an expert of flowers and insects and her paintings of overflowing bouquets often depict a variety of blooms in amazing accuracy and detail. Ruysch is remembered today as one of the very few women who were a part of the Dutch Golden Age of painting. She learned from masters such as Willem van Aelst and married fellow painter Juriaen Pool. While raising their ten children, Ruysch continued to paint and produce commissions for international patrons, developing a legacy that lives on to this day. Check out a few of her striking paintings below.  The painting featured at the top of this post is "Roses, Convolvulus, Poppies, and Other Flowers",...
