Rudolf Koller (Swiss painter, 1828-1905)

Rudolf Koller (21 May 1828 - 5 January 1905) was a Swiss painter⏭. He is associated with a realist and classicist style, and also with the essentially romantic Düsseldorf school of painting.
Koller's style is similar to that of the realist painters Gustave Courbet and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot.
Considered Switzerland's finest animal painter, Koller is rated alongside George Stubbs, Rosa Bonheur and Théodore Géricault. While his reputation was based on his paintings of animals, he was a sensitive and innovative artist whose well-composed works in the "plein air" tradition, including Swiss mountain landscapes, are just as finely executed.

Paul Klee (Swiss-born German painter, 1879-1940)


Klee has been variously associated with expressionism, cubism, futurism, surrealism, and abstraction, but his pictures are difficult to classify. He generally worked in isolation from his peers, and interpreted new art trends in his own way.
He was inventive in his methods and technique. Klee worked in many different media-oil paint, watercolor, ink, pastel, etching, and others.
He often combined them into one work. He used canvas, burlap, muslin, linen, gauze, cardboard, metal foils, fabric, wallpaper, and newsprint. Klee employed spray paint, knife application, stamping, glazing, and impasto, and mixed media such as oil with watercolor, water color with pen and India ink, and oil with tempera.
