Unofficial Frank Frazetta Fantasy Art GallerySome Cool StuffAccueil | L'Univers de Luis Royo.Enchanting Fairytale WorldSelf-taught Australian artist Courtney Brims creates lovely and enchanting illustrations made of colored pencils and graphite. Her seemingly odd yet soft portraits are set against white backgrounds, making her dark drawings stand out even more. Her subjects seem caught in moments of wonder while being surrounded by absurdities. Brims balances the black and white portraits with splashes of color, allowing for beautifully moving works of art. Courtney Brims' website via [Hi Fructose]Edward HopperEdward Hopper a grandit à Nyach (Etat de New-York). Il s'intéresse à l'Art et commence ses premiers dessins d'après nature très jeune. Il part ensuite pour New-York et suit les cours de Robert Henri à la New-York School of Art. Il rencontre enfin le succès en 1923. Hopper est attentif à l'évolution de la société américaine. Contrairement à beaucoup de ses contemporains, qui se délectait dans la monumentalité de New York, Hopper a su éviter les attractions pittoresques de la ville.

Of all the colors artists have had at their command throughout the ages, none has endured more reversals of fortune than black. Indeed, in his book Black: The History of a Color, published by Princeton University Press, historian Michel Pastoureau points out that for a few centuries after Isaac Newton’s discovery of the spectrum, around 1665, “black and white were considered and experienced as ‘noncolors.’” Beginning with the earliest known cave paintings, Pastoureau charts the color’s passage through the realms of art, fashion, and society, noting that in ancient times black was associated with caverns and underground spaces, fearful places that nevertheless had their own sacred energy.
