(Eugène-Henri-) Gauguin (b. June 7, 1848, Paris, Fr. — d. May 8, 1903, Atuona, Hiva Oa, Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia), one of the leading French painters of the Postimpressionist period, whose development of a conceptual method of representation was a decisive step for 20th-century art. After spending a short period with Vincent van Gogh in Arles (1888), Gauguin increasingly abandoned imitative art for expressiveness through colour. From 1891 he lived and worked in Tahiti and elsewhere in the South Pacific. His masterpieces include the early Vision After the Sermon (1888) and Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (1897-98).

Antonio Canova (b. 1757 Possagno, Italy, d. 1822 Venice, Italy), was an Italian sculptor. Called “the supreme minister of beauty” and “a unique and truly divine man” by contemporaries, Antonio Canova was considered the greatest sculptor of his time. Despite his lasting reputation as a champion of Neoclassicism, Canova’s earliest works displayed a late Baroque or Rococo sensibility that was appealing to his first patrons, nobility from his native Venice.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: James Joseph Jacques Tissot


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 19th Century artist, James Joseph Jacques Tissot [French, 1836-1902] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Tissot_James

James Joseph Jacques Tissot (1836-1902), was a French painter and graphic artist. Early in his career he painted historical costume pieces, but in about 1864 he turned with great success to scenes of contemporary life, usually involving fashionable women. Following his alleged involvement in the turbulent events of the Paris Commune (1871) he took refuge in London, where he lived from 1871 to 1882. He was just as successful there as he had been in Paris and lived in some style in St. John’s Wood; in 1874 Edmond de Goncourt wrote sarcastically that he had ‘a studio with a waiting room where, at all times, there is iced champagne at the disposal of visitors, and around the studio, a garden where, all day long, one can see a footman in silk stockings brushing and shining the shrubbery leaves.’
