Max Nonnenbruch | Genre/Portrait painter



A painter of striking seductiveness of style is Max Nonnenbruch, of Munich. After winning recognition by his earlier works of domestic genre, he devoted himself almost entirely to idyllic and semi-classical subjects, akin in feeling to "The Favorite", in which he found the true direction of his talent, and by which he is represented in the greatest private collections of Germany.
Nonnenbruch received his formal art training at the Academy in Dnsseldorf and Munich. In Paris, he studied at the l'Ecole de Beaux-Arts and completed his studies at the Academy Julian in Italy.
Nonnenbruch had his debute exhibition in 1888, where he won a bronze medal.

Joan Miró | The Smile of the Flamboyant Wings, 1953

Joan Miró i Ferrà was an Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker and decorative artist. He was never closely aligned with any movement and was too retiring in his manner to be the object of a personality cult, like his compatriot Picasso, but the formal and technical innovations that he sustained over a very long career guaranteed his influence on 20th-century art.
