              Claude Monet
               

              Claude Monet (PDF ebook)

              By Brodskaya, Nathalia

              Para Claude Monet, el que se le considerara "impresionista" fue siempre un motivo de orgullo. A pesar de todas las criticas que se han hecho a su trabajo, siguio siendo un verdadero impresionista hasta el final de su muy larga vida. Lo era por conviccion profunda y, por el impres...ionismo, pudo haber sacrificado muchas otras oportunidades que su inmenso talento le ofrecia. Monet no pintaba composiciones clasicas con figuras y nunca fue retratista, aunque su entrenamiento profesional incluia estas habilidades. Eligio un solo genero y lo hizo suyo: el paisajismo, y en el logro un grado de perfeccion que ninguno de sus contemporaneos pudo conseguir. Sin embargo, cuando era nino, comenzo por dibujar caricaturas. Boudin aconsejo a Monet que dejara de hacer caricaturas y se dedicara a los paisajes. El mar, el cielo, los animales, las personas y los arboles son hermosos en el estado en que la naturaleza los creo, rodeados de aire y luz. De hecho, fue Boudin quien trasmitio a Monet su conviccion de la importancia de trabajar al aire libre, que a su vez, Monet transmitiria a sus amigos impresionistas. Monet no quiso asistir a la Escuela de Bellas Artes. Eligio estudiar en una escuela privada, L'Academie Suisse, fundada por un ex-modelo en Quai d'Orfevres, cerca del puente Saint-Michel. Ahi era posible dibujar y pintar modelos vivos por una tarifa modesta. Ahi conocio tambien al futuro impresionista Camille Pissarro. Mas tarde, en el estudio de Gleyre, Monet conocio a Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley y Frederic Bazille. Monet consideraba muy importante presentar a Boudin a sus nuevos amigos. Tambien le hablo a sus amigos de otro pintor que habia encontrado en Normandia. Se trataba del holandes Jongkind. Sus paisajes estaban saturados de color y su sinceridad, que en ocasiones rayaba en inocencia, combinaba la sutil observacion de la naturaleza cambiante de la costa normanda. En aquella epoca, los paisajes de Monet aun no se caracterizaban por una gran riqueza de color. Mas bien re

              Claude Monet (PDF ebook)

              By Brodskaya, Nathalia

              Per Claude Monet la creazione artistica e sempre stata una lotta sofferta. Attribuiva maggiore importanza di quanto non facessero i suoi contemporanei a un aspetto essenziale dell'Impressionismo: comunicare all'osservatore le emozioni prodotte dalla luce. Per usare le parole di ...Monet: Le tecniche vanno e vengono [...] L'arte rimane la stessa: una rappresentazione della natura che richiede impegno e sensibilita. Io mi misuro e combatto con il sole [...]. Bisognerebbe dipingere con oro e pietre preziose.

              Sisley
                

              Sisley (PDF ebook)

              By Brodskaya, Nathalia

              Alfred Sisley (Paris, 1839 - Moret-Sur-Loing, 1899) Alfred Sisley naquit a Paris le 30 octobre 1839 dans une famille anglaise. Ayant atteint ses dix-huit ans, ses parents l'envoyerent en Angleterre. C'est alors, probablement, qu'il pressentit, devant la facture libre des paysage...s, a l'apparence d'esquisses, de Turner et Constable, sa vocation pour la peinture. Le destin amena Sisley, en octobre 1862, dans le meme atelier libre de Charles Gleyre, ou etaient venus etudier Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir et Frederic Bazille. C'est Sisley qui avait incite ses amis a en finir avec l'apprentissage chez Gleyre et a partir peindre dans la nature. Il etait indigne, beaucoup plus que ses amis, par l'attitude hautaine de Gleyre envers le paysage. Pour Sisley, le paysage fut, des le debut, non seulement un genre pictural essentiel, mais, en fait, le seul et unique auquel il travaillat toute sa vie. Apres avoir quitte Gleyre, Sisley peignit souvent en compagnie de Monet, Renoir et Bazille dans les environs de Paris. A partir de 1870, dans la peinture de Sisley commencerent a apparaitre les premieres caracteristiques de la maniere qui sera plus tard celle de la peinture impressionniste. A partir de ce moment, le coloris des tableaux de Sisley devient nettement plus clair. Cette nouvelle technique cree une impression de vibration de l'eau, de moirures colorees a sa surface et de transparence de l'atmosphere. Dans la peinture de Sisley, la lumiere etait nee. Sisley peignit une quantite de paysages des bords de la Seine. Il decouvrit Argenteuil et la petite ville de Villeneuve-la-Garenne, qui resta dans son oeuvre comme l'image du silence et de la tranquillite, d'un monde que la civilisation et l'industrie n'avaient pas encore defigure. Contrairement a Pissarro, il ne recherchait pas l'exactitude prosaique. Ses paysages se colorent toujours de son attitude emotionnelle a leur egard. Comme chez Monet, les ponts chez Sisley se fondent dans le paysage d'une facon toute naturelle. Un ci

              By Brodskaya, Nathalia

              Le pere Pissarro , comme aimaient a l'appeler ses amis, etait le plus sage des artistes impressionnistes. Peut etre son age, plus avance que celui de ses camarades Monet, Sisley, Bazille et Renoir, ou plutot sa maturite, lui firent creer des oeuvres sereines et sobres tant dans l...eur sujet que dans leur composition. Homme au gouts simples, il se plut a peindre des paysans sur les chemins, bien qu'il dut sa tardive notoriete a ses paysages urbains, traites avec la meme passion que celle que faisaient jaillir en lui les ciels orageux et les matins blanchis par le givre.

              Gauguin (PDF ebook)

              By Brodskaya, Nathalia

              Paul Gauguin (Paris, 1848 - Atuona, Iles Marquises 1903) Paul Gauguin fut tout d'abord marin puis agent de change emerite a Paris. En 1874, il commenca a peindre pendant les week-ends, tel un peintre du dimanche. Neuf ans plus tard, apres un crack boursier, il sentit qu'il pourr...ait faire vivre sa famille en peignant et il demissionna. Sur les pas de Cezanne, Gauguin peignit des natures mortes des le debut de sa carriere artistique. Il posseda meme une nature morte de Cezanne, que l'on peut observer derriere le personnage principal de son Portrait de Marie Lagadu. En 1891, Gauguin quitte la France pour Tahiti ou il resta jusqu'en 1893. Son sejour a Tahiti fut determinant pour sa vie et sa carriere future. Apres un retour en France, il repart a Tahiti en 1895 et y restera le restant de sa vie. La, Gauguin decouvrit l'art primitif, avec ses formes planes et ses couleurs violentes, celles de la nature a l'etat sauvage. Avec une fidelite absolue, il les reproduisit sur sa toile. Toutes ses peintures sont le reflet d'un style caracterise par la simplifications radicales du dessin, les couleurs brillantes, pures et lumineuses, une composition ornementale et une platitude deliberee des plans - le style qu'il appelait lui-meme symbolisme synthetique .

              Monet (PDF ebook)

              By Brodskaya, Nathalia

              For Claude Monet the designation 'impressionist' always remained a source of pride. In spite of all the things critics have written about his work, Monet continued to be a true impressionist to the end of his very long life. He was so by deep conviction, and for his Impressionism... he may have sacrificed many other opportunities that his enormous talent held out to him. Monet did not paint classical compositions with figures, and he did not become a portraitist, although his professional training included those skills. He chose a single genre for himself, landscape painting, and in that he achieved a degree of perfection none of his contemporaries managed to attain. Yet the little boy began by drawing caricatures. Boudin advised Monet to stop doing caricatures and to take up landscapes instead. The sea, the sky, animals, people, and trees are beautiful in the exact state in which nature created them - surrounded by air and light. Indeed, it was Boudin who passed on to Monet his conviction of the importance of working in the open air, which Monet would in turn transmit to his impressionist friends. Monet did not want to enrol at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He chose to attend a private school, L'Academie Suisse, established by an ex-model on the Quai d'Orfevres near the Pont Saint-Michel. One could draw and paint from a live model there for a modest fee. This was where Monet met the future impressionist Camille Pissarro. Later in Gleyre's studio, Monet met Auguste Renoir Alfred Sisley, and Frederic Bazille. Monet considered it very important that Boudin be introduced to his new friends. He also told his friends of another painter he had found in Normandy. This was the remarkable Dutchman Jongkind. His landscapes were saturated with colour, and their sincerity, at times even their naivete, was combined with subtle observation of the Normandy shore's variable nature. At this time Monet's landscapes were not yet characterized by great richness of colour. Rather, they recalle

              By Brodskaya, Nathalia

              Cezanne was perhaps the most complex artist of the 19th century. One of the greatest of the Postimpressionists, his works and ideas were crucial to the aesthetic development of many 20th-century artists and art movements, especially Cubism. His paintings are also beautiful, as ev...idenced by the reproductions in this book.

              A contemporary of and collaborator with Van Gogh, Gaugin's art was highly influential in the 20th century. His studies of religious devotion and life on tropical islands remain some of the most moving -- and popular -- paintings to come out of the 19th century.

              For Monet, the act of creation was always a painful struggle. He attached more importance than any of his contemporaries to one of the essential aspects of Impressionism: transmitting light and emotion to the spectator. The illustrations in this book show the fruits of this strug...gle, beautifully reproducing Monet's work.
