Emil Nolde (1867-1956) Pittore Espressionista

Emil Nolde (nato Hans Emil Hansen) è stato un pittore ed incisore Tedesco-Danese. È stato uno dei primi espressionisti, membro di Die Brücke, ed è stato uno dei primi pittori di pittura ad olio e acquarello dell'inizio del XX secolo ad esplorare il colore.
È noto per la sua pennellata e la scelta espressiva dei colori.
I gialli dorati e i rossi profondi appaiono frequentemente nelle sue opere, conferendo una qualità luminosa a toni altrimenti cupi.
I suoi acquerelli includono paesaggi di tempesta vividi e minacciosi e fiori brillanti.
L'intensa preoccupazione di Nolde per il soggetto dei fiori rifletteva il suo interesse per l'arte di Vincent van Gogh.

Morten Lasskogen, 1986 | Surrealist 3D painter


Morten Lasskogen is a Copenhagen-based visual artist.
- "After working as a photographer for nearly 10 years, in 2018 I started experimenting with 3d. I discovered that a lot of the things i knew about lighting and composition worked more or less the same way as with photography, but the big difference was: 3d didn't have the same limits - I could literally control the sun"!

Bertha Wegmann (Danish painter, 1847-1926)


Ritrattista Danese di origini Tedesche, Bertha Wegmann è stata la prima donna a detenere una cattedra presso l'Accademia reale Danese di belle arti.
All'età di cinque anni, la sua famiglia si trasferì a Copenaghen, dove suo padre divenne un commerciante.
Era un amante dell'arte e ha trascorso gran parte del suo tempo libero a dipingere.
Ha mostrato interesse per il disegno in tenera età, ma non ha ricevuto istruzione formale fino a quando aveva diciannove anni, quando iniziò a prendere lezioni da Frederik Ferdinand Helsted, Heinrich Buntzen e Frederik Christian Lund.
Due anni dopo, con il sostegno dei suoi genitori, si trasferì a Monaco e visse lì fino al 1881. All'inizio studiò con lo storico pittore Wilhelm von Lindenschmit il Giovane, poi con il pittore di genere Eduard Kurzbauer, ma non ne fu soddisfatta imparando in un'atmosfera da studio e ho deciso di studiare direttamente dalla natura.

Camille Pissarro | White Frost, Woman Breaking Up Wood, 1890

  • Painting, art in general, enchants me. It is my life. What else matters? When you put all your soul into a work, all that is noble in you, you cannot fail to find a kindred soul who understands you, and you do not need a host of such spirits. Is not that all an artist should wish for?
  • When you do a thing with your whole soul and everything that is noble within you, you always find your counterpart.
  • It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character.
  • Work at the same time on sky, water, branches, ground, keeping everything going on an equal basis... Don't be afraid of putting on colour... Paint generously and unhesitatingly, for it is best not to lose the first impression.
