Claude Hirst — born Claudine — was the only acclaimed woman to work in the realistic style of still life painting known as trompe l’oeil(“fool the eye”), which flourished in America at the turn of the 20th century. Hirst’s intimately scaled oils and watercolors display her dazzling skill for rendering the surfaces and textures of objects.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Jacek Yerka


Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 20th Century artist, Jacek Yerka [Polish, 1952-] Link: https://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Yerka_Jacek

Painter Jacek Yerka was born in a small city in Northern Poland in the early 1950s. His developing years were spent playing amidst the wonderfully preserved architecture of medieval Europe, as his hometown was spared much of the bombing that beset Poland during the war. It is this environment of reddish brown brickwork that immediately calls to mind the works of Bosch and Brueghel, whose palette Yerka shares.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Luca Signorelli


Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 15th Century artist, Luca Signorelli [Italian, 1441-1523] Link: https://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Signorelli_Luca

Luca Signorelli was an Italian painter from Cortona, active in various cities of central Italy, notably Arezzo, Florence, Orvieto, Perugia, and Rome. According to Vasari, Signorelli was a pupil of Piero della Francesca and this seems highly probable on stylistic grounds, for his solid figures and sensitive handling of light echo the work of the master. Signorelli differed from Piero, however, in his interest in the representation of action, which put him in line with contemporary Florentine artists such as the Pollaiuolo brothers. The Scourging of Christ (c. 1480), a signed processional banner for the church of Santa Maria del Mercato at Fabriano, reveals his developed handling of anatomy. Between 1477 and 1482 he decorated the Sacristy of St John in the Santuario della Santa Casa (Sanctuary of the Holy House) at Loreto.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Gentile Massi


Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 15th Century artist, Gentile Massi [Italian, 1370?-?1427] Link: https://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Fabriano_Gentile_da

Italian painter in the International Gothic style. Originally named Gentile di Niccolò di Giovanni di Massio, he was named after his birthplace, Fabriano in the Marches. He carried out important commissions in several major Italian art centres and was recognized as one of the foremost artists of his day, but most of the work on which his great contemporary reputation was based has been destroyed. It included frescos in the Doges’ Palace in Venice (1408) and for St John Lateran in Rome (1427). In between he worked in Florence, Siena, and Orvieto.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Bernardo Strozzi


Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 17th Century artist of the Baroque movement, Bernardo Strozzi [Italian, 1581-1644] Link: https://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Strozzi_Bernardo

Bernardo Strozzi (b. 1581 Genoa, Italy, d. 1644 Venice, Italy), was one of the most influential Italian painters and designers of the early 1600s, especially in Genoa and Venice. He briefly studied with a painter and antiquarian before his mother sent him to work with a Sienese painter in Genoa. Although he became a Capuchin monk and entered the monastery at San Barnabà in Genoa in 1598, he continued to paint, producing primarily devotional works. In 1610 Strozzi was given permission to leave the monastery in order to support his sick widowed mother and unmarried sister as a painter. In addition to painting in oils, he also painted frescoes, but few survive. Although he drew on the great variety of styles available in the busy cosmopolitan center of Genoa, Strozzi was perhaps most profoundly influenced by Caravaggio and the work of Caravaggio’s students.
