Max Ernst

Max Ernst
Max Ernst (2 April 1891 – 1 April 1976) was a German painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and poet. A prolific artist, Ernst was a primary pioneer of the Dada movement and Surrealism. Biography[edit] Early life[edit] Max Ernst was born in Brühl, near Cologne, the third of nine children of a middle-class Catholic family. In 1914 Ernst met Hans Arp in Cologne. Dada and surrealism[edit] Ernst was demobilized in 1918 and returned to Cologne. Ernst and Luise's son Ulrich 'Jimmy' Ernst was born on 24 June 1920;[4] he also became a painter. Although apparently accepting the ménage à trois at first, Éluard eventually became more concerned about the affair. The next year he collaborated with Joan Miró on designs for Sergei Diaghilev. Ernst developed a fascination with birds that was prevalent in his work. World War II and later life[edit] L'Ange du Foyer, (1937) His marriage to Guggenheim did not last, and in Beverly Hills, California in October 1946, in a double ceremony with Man Ray and Juliet P.

Expressionism Expressionism was a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas.[1][2] Expressionist artists sought to express meaning[3] or emotional experience rather than physical reality.[3][4] Origin of the term[edit] In 1905, a group of four German artists, led by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, formed Die Brücke (the Bridge) in the city of Dresden. This was arguably the founding organization for the German Expressionist movement, though they did not use the word itself. A few years later, in 1911, a like-minded group of young artists formed Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) in Munich. "View of Toledo" by El Greco, 1595/1610 has been indicated to have a particularly striking resemblance to 20th-century expressionism.

By the late 1960s, Tanning’s paintings were almost completely abstract, yet always suggestive of the female form. Literary career[edit] Bibliography[edit] Birthday. Quotes[edit] "Women artists.

Leonora Carrington Leonora Carrington OBE (6 April 1917 – 25 May 2011[1]) was a British-born–Mexican artist, surrealist painter and novelist. She lived most of her adult life in Mexico City, and was one of the last surviving participants in the Surrealist movement of the 1930s.[2] Early life[edit] Carrington was born in Clayton Green, Chorley, Lancashire,[3][4] England. Educated by governesses, tutors, and nuns, she was expelled from two schools, including New Hall School, Chelmsford,[8] for her rebellious behaviour, until her family sent her to Florence where she attended Mrs Penrose's Academy of Art. In 1927, at the age of ten, she saw her first Surrealist painting in a Left Bank gallery and met many Surrealists, including Paul Éluard.[9] She became familiar with Surrealism from a copy of Herbert Read's book, 'Surrealism' (1936), which was given to her by her mother.[7] She received little encouragement from her family to forge an artistic career.

Isto pitanje, ekipa kojoj skidamo kapu, postavila je i Darku Rundeku, Edi Maajki, Dini Šaranu iz Letu Štuke, Srđanu Jevđeviću iliti Đinu Banana iz Kultur Shocka te književniku Miši Mariću, a što su im odgovorili pogledajte klikom na Prosjek trajanja odgovora koje ćete vidjeti otprilike je minuta, valjda jer je danas stvarno lagano objasniti zašto odabrati stranu antifašizma … Ovu priliku koristimo i da se zahvalimo AntiFa ekipi iz BiH, jer zbog onoga što rade, pa i zbog ovakvih pitanja, tamo gdje žive autori ovih priloga postaje se "legitimnom metom" fizičkih napada ...

egilse romane Walter Inglis Anderson Walter Inglis Anderson (September 29, 1903 – November 30, 1965) was an American painter, writer, and naturalist. Known to his family as "Bob", he was born in New Orleans to George Walter Anderson, a grain broker, and Annette McConnell Anderson, member of a prominent New Orleans family, who had studied art at Newcomb College, where she had absorbed the ideals of the American Arts and Crafts movement. Pennsylvania Academy[edit] Ocean Springs[edit] Returning to Ocean Springs after his years at the Academy, Anderson worked as a designer in the family business, Shearwater Pottery, founded by his older brother Peter. Among his early projects, launched with his younger brother, James ("Mac"), was a "Shearwater Pottery Annex" which produced inexpensive figurines, giving Anderson enough of an income to marry Agnes Grinstead[1] in 1933, an art history graduate of Radcliffe College, who would later write a poignant memoir of their life together (Approaching the Magic Hour).

ESEJ PROTESTANTSKOG PASTORA KOJEG SU OBJESILI ZBOG ČOVJEKOLJUBLJA: O gluposti :: Novice :: Lupiga - "... svijet kroz obične oči" Dietrich Bonhoeffer Glupost je opasniji neprijatelj dobra nego zlo. Protiv zla možemo protestirati, možemo ga raskrinkati, možemo ga, ako ustreba, silom spriječiti. Da bismo znali kako s glupošću izaći na kraj, moramo nastojati shvatiti njenu suštinu. Svom pastoru Nijemci su odali priznanje stavljajući njegov lik na poštansku markicu Kad bolje promatramo stvar, opažamo da svaki jači razvoj spoljašnje moći, bilo političke bilo religijske prirode, udara glupošću veliki broj ljudi. Zato je sasma jasno da se glupost ne može prevladati poučavanjem, nego jedino oslobađanjem. Uostalom, ove misli o gluposti ipak su donekle i utješne.

Max Ernst Peintre allemand, naturalisé américain, puis français (Brühl 1891-Paris 1976). Une inspiration ouverte à tous les courants artistiques nouveaux En 1909, Max Ernst commence des études de philosophie à l'université de Bonn ; il est attiré par la psychopathologie et l'art des aliénés. Il lit Freud, Max Stirner, Dostoïevski, Nietzsche, mais c'est la peinture qui devient sa raison de vivre. Une production très riche servie par les techniques les plus variées La production de l'artiste est de plus en plus riche ; sa vie n'est que création continue, et il suffit d'indiquer quelques repères biographiques. Ce grand inventeur d'images joue soit sur l'extrême précision du représenté, soit sur des effets de flou, d'espaces et de formes suggérés appartenant au domaine du merveilleux, quand il ne combine pas les deux procédés. Max Ernst traque l'imaginaire au moyen des techniques les plus variées, qu'il invente ou adapte avec la virtuosité qui lui est propre dans tous les domaines.
