Vincent van Gogh | Snow-Covered Field with a Harrow (after Millet), 1890

From: Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
After a long period of psychological crisis, Van Gogh had lost his confidence in himself, as a person and as a painter.
For a long time, he felt useless and did not even dare to go outside.
To build up his self-confidence again, he started copying prints - a common exercise for beginning painters.

This painting is a copy of a print by Jean-François Millet (1814-1875).

Gustave Loiseau | Pittore Post-Impressionista

Gustave Loiseau (Parigi, 1865-1935) è stato un pittore Francese, appartenente al movimento dei post-impressionisti.
L'espressione pittorica di Loiseau si mantenne sempre nell'alveo della corrente post-impressionista e se egli mostrò qualche evidente influenza da parte di altri maestri, non si può che fare il nome di Claude Monet, specie osservando le sue rappresentazioni dei porti, delle falesie e delle chiese, eseguite in piccole serie.
Loiseau dipingeva all'aria aperta, immerso nei paesaggi che lo ispiravano, in Bretagna, in Normandia, o anche nei centri abitati, come Moret-sur-Loing o la stessa Parigi. Realizzò molte tele su Pontoise e sulla sua regione, come del resto fece anche Camille Pissarro, riprendendo il quartiere dell'Hermitage, la cattedrale di Saint Maclou, la banchina di Ponthuis e le sponde dell'Oise. E si portò anche in molti dei centri abitati circostanti, come Auvers-sur-Oise, Nesles-la-Vallée, Osny e Saint-Ouen-l'Aumône.

Gustave Loiseau (Parigi, 1865-1935)

Nato a Parigi da una famiglia di macellai originaria della Val-d'Oise, il pittore Francese Gustave Loiseau visse l'infanzia e l'adolescenza a Pontoise.
All'età di quindici anni venne messo come apprendista nella bottega di un salumiere, ma, pochi anni dopo, sentì il bisogno di abbandonare l'ambiente commerciale e di avvicinarsi all'arte. Passò quindi, sempre come apprendista, presso un decoratore amico della famiglia e la fortuna lo assistette. Alla morte della nonna, infatti, ereditò una somma sufficiente a mantenersi nella capitale.
Si trasferì quindi a Parigi, distante solo 25 km, nel quartiere di Montmartre, e si iscrisse alla "Scuola di arti decorative".
Dopo solo un anno, però, a causa di una lite con un docente, lasciò la Scuola e iniziò a lavorare come decoratore.

Gustave Loiseau | Post-Impressionist painter

French Post-Impressionist painter Gustave Loiseau (1865-1935) is best remembered for his scenes of evocative landscapes and bustling Paris streets.
The artist used latticed brushstrokes to depict fleeting moments, blending the Impressionist pursuit of naturalistic depiction with a more modern desire for painterly expression.
Loiseau was born on October 3, 1865 in Paris.
In his youth, he was apprenticed to a decorator, but soon received an inheritance from his grandmother, which allowed him to pursue his artistic passions. He enrolled at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, where he studied life drawing, but left after a year after quarreling with an instructor.
He set out for the riparian vistas of Pont-Aven, where he befriended other artists including Paul Gauguin and Émile Bernard.

Paul Cézanne 1839-1906 | Post-Impressionist

Paul Cézanne was a french artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism.
The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed.
