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.

Camille Pissarro | Le Marché de Gisors, Grande-Rue, 1885




On Monday mornings, Camille Pissarro often joined his wife Julie and a couple of their children, with some household helpers, for the two-and-a-half-mile excursion from their home in Éragny to attend market day in Gisors, a town of about four thousand inhabitants further down the Epte River.
While Julie stocked up on produce and provisions for the coming week, Pissarro sketched the many people from Gisors and nearby villages who gathered among the stalls set up on the Grand-Rue (today the rue de Vienne) near the town hall, as they engaged in selling, buying, or bartering, exchanging news, and socializing during this all-important, weekly communal event.
