Fernando Botero, 1932 | Stile artistico

Secondo Botero, il dipingere deve essere inteso come una necessità interiore, un bisogno che porta ad un'esplorazione ininterrotta verso il quadro ideale. Tuttavia, questo bisogno rimane sostanzialmente inappagato. Il colore rimane tenue, mai esaltato, mai febbrile, generalmente steso in campiture piatte ed uniformi, senza contorni.
Da notare l'assenza totale delle ombreggiature nei suoi dipinti, perché essi, secondo Botero "... sporcherebbero l'idea del colore che desidero trasmettere".
Caratteristica della sua pittura è l'insolita dilatazione che subiscono i suoi soggetti, che acquistano forme insolite, quasi irreali, ma con un proprio fascino. Ma è un passaggio necessario per ben far comprendere la necessità di colore delle sue opere. L'artista si rivela sostanzialmente distante dai suoi soggetti.
Ed è proprio questa freddezza che fa scomparire dai personaggi la dimensione morale e psicologica. Gli sguardi sono sempre persi nel vuoto, gli occhi non battono, sembra quasi che osservino senza guardare.

Edvard Munch | Legacy / Eredità

When a norwegian Symbolist painter Edvard Munch (1863-1944)died, his remaining works were bequeathed to the city of Oslo, which built the Munch Museum at Tøyen (it opened in 1963).
The museum holds a collection of approximately 1,100 paintings, 4,500 drawings, and 18,000 prints, the broadest collection of his works in the world.
The Munch Museum serves as Munch's official estate; it has been active in responding to copyright infringements as well as clearing copyright for the work, such as the appearance of Munch's The Scream in a 2006 M and M's advertising campaign.
The U.S. copyright representative for the Munch Museum and the Estate of Edvard Munch is the Artists Rights Society.
Munch's art was highly personalized and he did little teaching. His "private" symbolism was far more personal than that of other Symbolist painters such as Gustave Moreau and James Ensor.

Edvard Munch | Starry Night, 1893

This night landscape represents the coastline at Åsgårdstrand, a small beach resort south of Oslo in Norway, where Edvard Munch spent his summers from the 1880s onward.
Here Munch tried to capture the emotions called forth by the night rather than to record its picturesque qualities.
The color blue conveys the mysticism and melancholy of the landscape, which seems full of premonitions.
An abstract mound at the right represents a clump of trees; a white fence runs diagonally in front. The vaguely defined shape on the fence may be a shadow of two lovers, a recurring theme in Munch's work.

Edvard Munch | Girl looking out the window, 1893

Norwegian painter Edvard Munch is widely known for his iconic pre-Expressionist painting "The Scream" / "The Cry".
Edvard Munch, who never married, called his paintings his children and hated to be separated from them.
Living alone on his estate outside Oslo for the last 27 years of his life, increasingly revered and increasingly isolated, he surrounded himself with work that dated to the start of his long career.

Henry Battle | African American Realistic Figurative painter

Battle, a Californian native and well traveled Air Force veteran, now rooted in Atlanta GA, describes his style as richly realistic figurative snapshots of life. His subject matter ranges from spiritual and family-oriented, to romantic moments that he freezes in time. After feeling the passion of his subjects from a distance, he wants the viewer to walk up close and be drawn into the detail of it, discovering a bit more each time. Henry produced his first artwork a limited edition, colored pencil drawing entitled Last Single Thoughts while stationed at Ramstein Air Base, Germany in 1991.
With a strong spiritual base, he believes art is not only his gift from God, but also his assignment to capture and portray positive spirited images of life. He gains inspiration from the talents he observes in others lifting their gifts to the highest highs. Never content, Henry spends many hours daily polishing his style, creativity and vision, to further his ability to portray images in the best possible way, delivering collectors of his works sustained value long after their initial purchase.
