Gustav Klimt
 

Biography


Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) - Austria (Baumgarten)
Art Nouveau, Symbolism, Realism, Neo-Classicism, Romanticism


Gustav Klimt was born in Austria in 1862. His father was a gold engraver and, though the family never had much money, Klimt had dreams of becoming an artist. It was in 1876 that Klimt received a scholarship to attend the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts where he studied as an architectural painter. Though at first Klimt painted in a very academic style, that was soon to change. After the death of his father and brother we begin to see a shift in Klimt’s style as it becomes more akin to the later works for which he is most famous. In 1908 Klimt was one of the founding members of the Vienna Secession. This was a group with no single artistic style to pursue or even any kind of a manifesto they followed. Instead, the Vienna Secession was a group of artists whose goal it was, was to find and provide exhibition spaces for young and unconventional artists. Realists, Symbolists, such as Klimt himself, and many other various artists came together to display their work and promote their craft....

Paul Cezanne (1839 - 1906) - France (Aix-En-Provence)
Post-Impressionism, Romanticism, Cubism


Cezanne was born in Southern France in 1839. Unlike many of his contemporaries Cezanne was the son of a banker, never having to struggle to make ends meet, instead inheriting a small fortune upon his father’s death. It wasn’t until years later that Cezanne officially decided to dedicate his life to art. In 1861 Cezanne left for Paris, the art capital of the world, against the wishes of his father. Once he arrived, Cezanne met and befriended Pissarro, one of the founding artists of Impressionism. Cezanne quickly became Pissarro’s pupil, joining his many painting excursions to the countryside....

Besides the many paintings he did, Goya also was a master print maker, producing many long series of prints in his lifetime and chronicled history as well. His lifetime marked a shift in art world. Painters and other artists were beginning to leave behind the legacy of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. New artistic forms and styles were popping up throughout the world. Goya was special though at once being considered the last great Old Master, a term used for many of the prominent, influential Renaissance artists throughout Europe, but also as the first modern painter. No matter what category Goya is grouped with his art remains a fantastic treat for all who see it....

Biography


Eugène Delacroix (1798 - 1863) - France (Charenton-Saint-Maurice)
Romanticism, Romanticism


From the very beginnings of his career as an artist, Delacroix was regarded as the leader in the French Romantic School of art. His work was as far from that of Ingres, another famous artist of the day, as they could possibly be. Whereas Ingres followed in the footsteps of Classical works of art, Delacroix was fascinated by more contemporary painters such as Rubens and other Renaissance painters. It was them he followed instead of the growing Neoclassical movement....

Romanticism, Romanticism


Caspar David Friedrich was a German painter during the 1700s. Most of his painters were landscapes though a few do include people into the beautiful, wild nature of the German countryside. Some of his best known works are those landscapes which feature contemplative figures who, like the viewer, are looking out at the vast landscape, contemplating something that can only be guessed at. Friedrich’s paintings are anti-classical in style, going against the rival of the ideals of classical Greece and Rome, and instead are completed more in line with the works of the English painters John Constable and J.M.W. Turner....
 
John Constable
 

Biography


John Constable (1776 - 1837) - United Kingdom (East Bergholt)
Romanticism, Romanticism


Of the myriad of landscape painters that worked throughout the 19th century, John Constable was one of the best. Today landscape painting is considered a beautiful genre that is noteworthy in its own ways. It is perfectly acceptable for a young artist to admit in an art class that they want to be a landscape painter. However, attitudes in the 18th century were very different. It was not commonly acceptable to just produce landscape paintings. They didn’t do anything, not like how a religious painting praises god or the saints and not like how portraits commemorate individuals and promote their social status. Landscapes, while sometimes pretty to do look at, didn’t serve a cause other than to please the eye....
