Biography


Vincent Van Gogh (1853 - 1890) - Netherlands (Zundert)
Post-Impressionism, Realism, Cloisonnism, Symbolism


Vincent Van Gogh is undoubtedly one of the most beloved painters today. His story is one that nearly everyone is familiar with. And yet in his own time, Van Gogh was considered just another want to be artist who wasn’t going anywhere and crazy to boot. It is tragic that Van Gogh didn’t survive to see his own rise to fame and appreciation in the art world. Out of the dozens of paintings created by Van Gogh only one ever sold. But still Van Gogh put all of his time, effort and money into creating these magnificent works so full of life and color....

Biography


Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973) - Spain (Málaga)
Naive Art / Primitivism, Surrealism, Expressionism, Synthetic Cubism, Realism, Art Nouveau, Cubism, Symbolism, Abstract Art, Neo Expressionism, Analytical Cubism


Pablo Picasso is one of the most widely known and influential artists of the twentieth century. A Spanish painter, Picasso experimented with his art, his style ever changing and evolving. Some of his very early works look nothing like what you would expect of Picasso, looking much more traditional in form and function than anything he completed in his later years. Picasso is most famous for being the co-founder of Cubism. However, it is some of his earlier works that are most recognizable as his....

Salvador Domenec Felip Jacint Dalí Domenech (May 11, 1904 - January 23, 1989) was an important Catalan painter, best known for his surrealist works. Dalí's work is noted for its striking combination of bizarre dreamlike images with excellent draftsmanship and painterly skills influenced by the Renaissance masters. Dalí was an artist of great talent and imagination. He had an admitted love of doing unusual things to draw attention to himself, which sometimes irked those who loved his art as much as it annoyed his critics, since his eccentric theatrical manner sometimes overshadowed his artwork in public attention....
 
Edvard Munch
 

Biography


Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944) - Sweden (Ådalsbruk)
Expressionism, Realism, Symbolism


Edvard Munch was a great painter of the late 1800s. He was a Norwegian Symbolist painter whose work was a forerunner of Expressionist art as done by figures such as Van Gogh. Very poor and ill for most of his childhood, Munch received much of his schooling through tutoring by his siblings, aunt and father. It was by drawing that Munch entertained himself most of the time, especially during the long winters when he was ill. Soon Munch’s interest in drawing turned into a career in painting. Though his style of painting was influenced heavily by the Post-Impressionist painters, Munch’s art was more Symbolist in style than anything else....
 
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....
