Henry Ossawa Tanner

The only black student, he became a favorite of the painter Thomas Eakins, who had recently begun teaching there. Tanner made other connections among artists, including Robert Henri. In the late 1890s he was sponsored for a trip to the Mutasarrifate of Jerusalem by Rodman Wanamaker, who was impressed by his paintings of biblical themes. Early life[edit] Tanner was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the first of seven children.[4] His middle name commemorated the struggle at Osawatomie between pro- and anti-slavery partisans.[4] His father Benjamin Tucker Tanner (1835-1923) was a bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the first independent black denomination in the United States.

The 100-year history of WWI's biggest painting

Less than a month before the end of World War I, a huge painting commemorating the war effort was unveiled in central Paris. Its creators wanted to honor the greatest war the world had ever seen with the greatest painting ever made, and they had spent the previous four years working on it with the help of 150 artists.

The result was the world's largest painting at the time, set on a panoramic canvas measuring 402 feet (122 meters) around and 45 feet (13.7 meters) high. It contained over 5,000 life-size portraits of war heroes, royalty and government officials from the Allies of World War I, with France dominating the stage. The painting was so big that a custom building had to be constructed to accommodate it. The "Panthéon de la Guerre" (meaning "Pantheon of the War") was unveiled, to great fanfare, on Oct. 19, 1918.

Index. Written by Jessica Lack, CNN This year marks the 100th anniversary of an exhibition of paintings by the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, at the Berthe Weill gallery in Paris.


The exhibition, displaying a number of nude works, was too much for some and shut down within hours of its opening. The police commissioner at the time had been offended by the depiction of pubic hair. "It really did shock people," said Nancy Ireson, one of the curators of a new exhibition of Modigliani's paintings at Tate Modern, "and some of the paintings had to be taken down.

Colorful Oil Paintings Depict Give a Glimpse into the Life of the Artist

Following in the footsteps of great landscape and still life painters, artist Rachel Campbell depicts the world around her—but with a colorful, contemporary twist. The talented artist paints often overlooked, everyday scenes as playful landscapes that are bursting with brightly colored hues. “I am a visual storyteller,” Campbell tells My Modern Met. “I sometimes think like a poet who writes unassuming poems about everyday events, taking us on a journey with them, I feel similar in how I use my imagery. One particular oil painting, titled To Remember We All Have a Story, depicts an abandoned trailer, still with the small colorful curtains in the window, suggesting that—at some point—someone called it home.

To Remember We All Have a Story. Francine van Hove… Why We Should Draw (From Life and the Masters) Why should art students learn to draw from life?

Why We Should Draw (From Life and the Masters)

My students; photography majors, graphic design majors and even illustration and studio majors do not readily understand why learning to draw accurately from life has significance for them. The answer to that question is complex, and I want to explore it more fully, but first, perhaps we should be asking a more important question. Sketching buildings is so much more than perspective - Liz Steel : Liz Steel. Perspective is the number one issue which people struggle with when it comes to sketching architecture.

Sketching buildings is so much more than perspective - Liz Steel : Liz Steel

Perspective is very important as it helps you see the angles of the main edges of the building more easily, but it’s just one of many other skills needed to create a convincing building sketch. This image is one of my quick sketches of St Stephen’s chapel in Brisbane – my workshop location during the recent Brisbane Sketchfest. I’ve added a heap of notes to highlight the important aspects of this building and what the critical areas are which need careful observation. This building was a great subject to use for my “Pointless Perspective” workshop as it had a lot of interesting details and intersections. I often choose a simpler building when I’m teaching perspective, but using this building was such a good reminder to me that there are so many other things to consider when sketching architecture.

Collage Illustrations Playfully Combine Everyday Objects with Drawings. Most of us take flowers, fruit, and other natural objects at face value, but imaginative Spanish artist Jesuso Ortiz uses them to create art.

Collage Illustrations Playfully Combine Everyday Objects with Drawings

He combines various found objects with his drawings to create playful, three-dimensional illustrations that give everyday items new meaning. Ortiz has been creating his illustration mashups for years, but there’s no sign of him running out of ideas. His latest work sees flowers as elaborate headdresses, fruit slices as bicycle wheels, and, in once piece, he’s cleverly reimagined an egg yolk as a big yellow balloon. Each object is perfectly paired with his minimalist drawings, creating striking, colorful images that will make you look twice. 5 Great Tools for Beginner Watercolor Artists - belindadelpesco.

While Pre-Raphaelitism played an influential part in shaping Hughes work, Aestheticism is also seen in his paintings. E.R.Hughes is widely known for his works Midsummer Eve and Night With Her Train of Stars yet he built a career as a portrait painter to the upper classes.[1]:17 On his own he experimented with ambitious techniques and was a perfectionist; he did numerous studies for many of his paintings, some of which turned out to be good enough for exhibition.
