biography Andy Warhol was born Andrew Warhola on August 6, 1928, in a two-room row house apartment at 73 Orr Street in Pittsburgh. His parents, Carpatho-Rusyn immigrants Andrej and Julia Warhola, had three sons. Andy was their youngest. Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Pablo Picasso This paintings was painted in 1907. It was called the most innovative painting since the work of Giotto, when Les Demoiselles d'Avignon first appeared it was as if the art world had collapsed. Known form and respresnetation were completely abandon. The reductionism and contortion of space in the painiting was incredible, and dislocation of faces explosive. Like any revolution, the shock waves reverbetrated and the inevitable outcome was Cubism. This large work, which took nine months to complete, exposes the true genius and novelty of Picasso's passion.

Closer to Van Eyck The panels of the Ghent Altarpiece are coated with layers of varnish. Varnish serves as a protective coating for paint layers and has important optical functions, since it saturates a painting's colors and creates a more even surface. However, most varnishes gradually degrade over time, getting brittle and opaque, and becoming a darkened and yellowed layer that can dramatically impact the perception of a painting's colors and tonal values.

Les 10 Marilyn, 1967 Posters by Andy Warhol - After Marilyn Monroe’s death, Pop Art founder Andy Warhol (1923 – 1987) spent four months making silkscreens based on a publicity still of Monroe from her film, “Niagara.” Fusing art with mass production, Warhol created brilliantly colored multiples of her image. Fascinated by morbid subjects and celebrity, he symbolized Monroe’s mortality, and her media saturation through brash, assembly-line reproductions of her face. Andy Warhol (1923 – 1987), one of the 20th century’s most creative, prolific and influential artists, defined a decade and a culture with his groundbreaking Pop Art. Initially a popular Manhattan commercial artist, Warhol achieved fame with his multiple images of soup cans, soda bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, which revealed the beauty within mass culture. Innovator of silkscreening, Warhol’s talents also encompassed filmmaking, music production, commercial illustration, writing and magazine publishing.

Pablo Picasso. Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. Paris, June-July 1907 Publication Excerpt: The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA Highlights, New York: The Museum of Modern Art, revised 2004, originally published 1999, p. 64 Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is one of the most important works in the genesis of modern art. The painting depicts five naked prostitutes in a brothel; two of them push aside curtains around the space where the other women strike seductive and erotic poses—but their figures are composed of flat, splintered planes rather than rounded volumes, their eyes are lopsided or staring or asymmetrical, and the two women at the right have threatening masks for heads. The space, too, which should recede, comes forward in jagged shards, like broken glass.

Bruegel: Unseen Masterpieces - Google Arts & Culture The Museum of Fine Arts Budapest, which houses one of the most important collections of European art from Antiquity to the present day, celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of its opening in 2006.

Artist Book Series + Daily Art & Design Blog Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush. His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them.

The ship remained in service until 1838 when she was decommissioned and towed from Sheerness to Rotherhithe to be broken up. The painting was thought to represent the decline of Britain's naval power. The 'Temeraire' is shown travelling east, away from the sunset, even though Rotherhithe is west of Sheerness, but Turner's main concern was to evoke a sense of loss, rather than to give an exact recording of the event.
