John Singer Sargent

John Singer Sargent 1856-1925 | American Impressionism

John Singer Sargent was an american artist, considered the "leading portrait painter of his generation" for his evocations of Edwardian Era luxury.
The Edwardian Period corresponds to the French Belle Époque period. Despite its brief pre-eminence, the period is characterised by its own unique architectural style, fashion, and lifestyle. Art Nouveau had a particularly strong influence. Artists were influenced by the development of the automobile and electricity, and a greater awareness of human rights.

Jean-François Millet | Birds Nesters, 1874


Known for his realistic portrayals of French peasants, Millet produced this painting at the very end of his life. He based the scene on stories from his childhood that told of great flights of wild pigeons. When the birds settled in trees at night, the peasants blinded them with light from torches and then clubbed hundreds to death. | © Philadelphia Museum of Art

Edward Hopper 1882-1967 | American Realist painter

Edward Hopper, considerato il migliore pittore realista Americano del XX secolo, è stato un pittore famoso soprattutto per i suoi ritratti della solitudine nella vita americana contemporanea. Il successo ottenuto con una mostra di acquerelli 1923 e con un'altra di dipinti 1924 contribuiscono a fare di Hopper il caposcuola dei realisti che dipingevano la "scena americana". La sua evocativa vocazione artistica si rivolge sempre più verso un forte realismo, che risulta la sintesi della visione figurativa combinata con il sentimento struggente e poetico che Hopper percepisce nei suoi soggetti. Diceva: "non dipingo quello che vedo, ma quello che provo".

Edward Hopper: "Non dipingo quello che vedo, ma quello che provo"!

Edgar Degas | Ballet dancers

Among the supreme masterpieces of the century are Degas's pictures of the ballet and its dancers. The impulse towards painting the contemporary scene came to him not only from Gustave Courbet 1819-1877 and Manet 1832-1883 but from his friend, the critic Duranty, the exponent of the aesthetics of naturalism. Yet in the particular direction of his tastes and his conception of design he was entirely individual. To study and convey movement was a chosen task, first undertaken on the race course and then in his many pictures of the Opera, viewed from behind the scenes, in the wings, or from the orchestra stalls during a performance.
