Emil Barbarini (1855-1930) Market painting

The Austrian painter🎨 Emil Barbarini was the son of the well-known landscape painter and etcher Franz Barbarini (1804-1873).
In contrast to the alpine themes of his father, he early started to focus on depictions of market scenes.
His favorite subject was the flower market in front of the Karlskirche in Vienna, but he also executed numerous market impressions of his study trips to the Netherlands and Belgium.
Barbarini was mainly interested in the special handling of light at different times of the day.
Similarly to the French artists Degas🎨 and Monet🎨, he often painted the same subject at different times, in order to capture the light without the risk of thematic distraction.


Max Liebermann (1847-1935)

Max Liebermann (20 July 1847 - 8 February 1935) was a German painter🎨 and printmaker of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, and one of the leading proponents of Impressionism in Germany.
The son of a Jewish fabric manufacturer turned banker from Berlin, Liebermann grew up in an imposing town house alongside the Brandenburg Gate.
He first studied law and philosophy at the University of Berlin, but later studied painting and drawing in Weimar in 1869, in Paris in 1872, and in the Netherlands in 1876-77.
During the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71), Liebermann served as a medic with the Order of St. John near Metz. After living and working for some time in Munich, he finally returned to Berlin in 1884, where he remained for the rest of his life. He was married in 1884 to Martha Marckwald (1857-1943).


Henry John Stock | Influences, 1905

Henry John Stock (1853-1930) is one of those minor but highly individual artists who are among the glories of the English Romantic tradition.
Born in Greek Street, Soho, in 1853, he went blind in childhood but recovered his sight on being sent to live at Beaulieu in the New Forest.
He studied at the St. Martin's School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools, and is said to have been encouraged by the engraver W.J. Linton, who took him to Italy. (It seems unlikely that this was before 1866, when Linton settled in America, since Stock would only have been thirteen at the time.
