The painter's mother1


Published on



Throughout history, many artists have painted their mothers for a variety reasons; “as a loving tribute, to capture a memorable face, to work through conflicting emotions, as a family legacy, or the simple availability of a model.” Mothers teach their children to dream. If you want to see some of the great artists’ most powerful work, look no further than their portraits of their mothers.

  • Mi querida Michaela, una delicada muestra de color y texturas con centro en la emotividad de ser madres..., claro que por la edad..., son más abuelas. Un gran trabajo. Un abrazo.

  • Born in Braşov , he was the eighth child of Ioan Popp Moldovan de Galaţi (1774-1869) and Elena (1783-1867), born Ivan, a family from the Făgăraş region. His father was a church muralist, painter and sculptor. Mişu Popp finished his art studies in 1848, at the Academy of Fine Arts from Vienna , where he developed a serious academic style. He carried on the work of his father by painting several churches from Bucharest , Braşov (Tocile, Saint Nicholas Church ), Araci , Râşnov , Satulung , Târgu-Jiu , Câmpulung , Urlaţi , etc. Between 1847 and 1853 he painted with Constantin Lecca the church of Curtea Veche from Bucharest. But his main art legacy resides in creating many portraits of the personalities of his time ( Ion Heliade Rădulescu , Andrei Mureşanu , Vasile Alecsandri , etc.) and of some famous historical figures, such as Michael the Brave , inspired from a contemporary engraving of the voivode. His paintings can be admired in Bucharest at the Romanian Literature Museum and the National Art Museum , as well as in museums in Arad , Braşov, Ploieşti , and Sibiu .
  • Bob Colacello: "The last portrait Andy [Warhol] painted at the old Factory in 1974 was of his mother, Julia Warhola, who had died two years before, though Andy avoided telling anyone about it, including Jed [Johnson]. Julia had been in a Pittsburgh nursing home for nineteen months before she died... Andy had avoided mentioning that fact, too, and Jed was under strict orders not to say a word. Andy paid for the nursing home, but never visited her there. He called her every day and she begged him to come see her. 'She hunted for him, under the dressers, in the basement' , his sister-in-law Ann Warhola later told me. 'They found her out on the highway looking for him.' Andy paid for her funeral, but he didn't go to it. 'He was afraid of death,' Anne Warhola later said. Andy often said the same thing about death that he said about sex - it was 'abstract'. And that's how he painted Julia, her photographic silkscreen image faint and faded under layers of squiggles and squishes, gobs and goops, painted on by her son's fingers." (BC266)
