Powerfully Moving Brush Strokes UK-based contemporary painter Paul Wright creates incredibly intimate, yet somewhat abstract, oil paintings that draw the viewer in. His work focuses primarily on people and faces, but he occasionally ventures off to depict clothing and objects to reflect the people who own them. Wright captures the essence of his characters.

“The Raft of the Medusa” – Art A Fact There are few better examples of technical mastery than Gericault’s tale of the poor shipwrecked souls of the French Naval Ship, The Medusa. Imagine an artist today creating a HUGE scene of the BP oil spills from a few years back – quite controversial right? But Gericault new that painting a scene of contemporary history could launch his career. Only 15 people survived the shipwreck and raft ordeal (of the original 147 that began on the raft!)

Picasso and Matisse seize you with their vision, Klee has the knack of making you feel a partner in it.
