Goya en El Prado:  Inicio Los documentos manuscritos de Goya, especialmente sus cartas, tienen un papel esencial para su conocimiento como artista y ser humano. La investigación sobre el pintor pasa necesariamente por el estudio riguroso y sistemático de toda su obra, y por tanto de todos los documentos escritos con él relacionados. En este sentido las cartas a su amigo Martín Zapater, escritas entre 1775 y 1799, los años del ascenso de Goya en la corte hasta su nombramiento como Primer Pintor de Cámara, además de aportar información biográfica de tipo profesional y personal, revelan sin reservas su carácter. Lo mismo ocurre con una de las últimas cartas escritas por el pintor desde su exilio en Burdeos, en este caso al banquero Joaquín María Ferrer, que constituye lo más parecido a un testamento vital del artista en su vejez. Por último, el comentario manuscrito de los Caprichos es una fuente excepcional para comprender el significado otorgado a esta serie en época de Goya.

Rembrandt Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. signature Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, habituellement désigné sous son seul prénom de Rembrandt[1], né le [2] et mort le , est généralement considéré comme l'un des plus grands peintres de l'histoire de la peinture, notamment de la peinture baroque, et l'un des plus importants peintres de l'École hollandaise du XVIIe siècle. Rembrandt a également réalisé des gravures et des dessins et est l'un des plus importants aquafortistes de l'histoire. Il a vécu pendant ce que les historiens appellent le siècle d'or néerlandais (approximativement le XVIIe siècle), durant lequel culture, science, commerce et influence politique de la Hollande ont atteint leur apogée.

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. Since a degraded varnish will make the dark areas appear lighter, it will also affect our perception of the rendering of volume and space.

Why values are so hard - and how to start getting them more right You’ll often hear accomplished painters talking about the importance of values. The reason is simple: value is one of the foundations of realistic drawing and painting. In fact, if you were to pressure me, I’d say it’s the foundation. Why do artists talk about values so much? Well, I think I know why from my own experience. Let me tell you a (very short) story.
