Potd10 Post Neo Impressionism

  1. 1. PoTD #10 <ul><li>Post Impressionists </li></ul><ul><li>Aka: </li></ul>
  2. 2. Hokusai <ul><li>The Impressionists and later the post Impressionists were greatly influenced by Japanese woodcut prints that would come over as packing for fine China from Japan. Eventually a market opened up for these and they became part of the public eye overseas. Hokusai ended up being very influential to western art, showing many different pictorial elements, such as flattened space, vibrant un-gradiated color and very different compositions. This is one woodcut from Hokusai’s famous ‘Thirty Six Views of Mt Fuji” series. </li></ul><ul><li>Hokusai </li></ul><ul><li>The Great Wave Off Kanagawa 1832 </li></ul><ul><li>Wood Block Print </li></ul><ul><li>Metropolitan Museum of Art </li></ul>
  3. 3. Vincent Van Gogh <ul><li>Van Gogh began painting when he was 27. He died at 37, but in that time he produced 2000 works of art! His life was fraught with crazy. From the start, Vinnie was destined for the nut house when his parents named him after his brother who was stillborn a few years before. Later in life especially, he was wracked with crazy stemming from what has been hypothesized as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, syphilis, lead poisoning (from the lead paint that he used and the brushes that he constantly had in his mouth), temporal lobe epilepsy and acute intermittent porphyria. He also was frequently drunk on absinthe, was malnourished and had insomnia! </li></ul><ul><li>It’s assumed that he was also taking digitalis...a medicine for epilepsy that makes you see yellow and provides radiant crowns from objects. His later paintings that show the sun or the stars all have this radiant effect. </li></ul><ul><li>Portrait of Dr. Gachet The Starry Night 1889 </li></ul><ul><li>Oil on Canvas 1890 Oil on Canvas </li></ul><ul><li>Unknown whereabouts Museum of Modern Art, NY </li></ul><ul><li>Sold in 1990 for $8.2M </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Van Gogh only sold ONE painting in his life. His work was pretty universally scoffed at, even by art collectors and family members. I’ll bet he’s kicking himself now for not being a vampire. Again, i’m new with this Power Point stuff, so please excuse the wierdness. </li></ul>Christie's, New York   Maria Altmann 2006 1912 Gustav Klimt Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II 87.9 94 10 Christie's, New York   heirs of Jacques Koerfer 1998 1889 Vincent van Gogh Portrait de l'artiste sans barbe 71.5 94.6 9 Sotheby's, New York   Gidwitz family 2006 1941 Pablo Picasso Dora Maar au Chat 95.2 101.8 8 Sotheby's, New York Alan Bond [3] son of Joan Whitney Payson 1987 1889 Vincent van Gogh Irises 53.9 102.3 7 Sotheby's, New York   Greentree foundation (Whitney family) 2004 1905 Pablo Picasso Garçon à la pipe 104.2 118.9 6 Sotheby's, New York Ryoei Saito [2] Betsey Whitney 1990 1876 Pierre- Auguste Renoir Bal au moulin de la Galette , Montmartre 78.1 128.8 5 Christie's, New York Ryoei Saito [1] Siegfried Kramarsky family 1990 1890 Vincent van Gogh Portrait of Dr. Gachet 82.5 136.1 4 private sale Ronald Lauder, Neue Galerie Maria Altmann 2006 1907 Gustav Klimt Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I 135 144.4 3 private sale via Larry Gagosian Steven A.

  5. 5. Georges Seurat <ul><li>Seurat invented pointilism. Pointilism is the act of dabbing the canvas with little tiny brushstrokes. In this case...thousands and thousands of em. There’s a lot of stuff going on in this painting, but i just don’t have the time! Someone actually made a Broadway show about this painting.
