Steve Henderson is an artist from Washington focusing on landscapes, seascapes and figurative work in a style that fuses impressionism with realism. A lifetime fine artist, Steve Henderson pursued a successful career in illustration before turning to fine art fulltime. His paintings are sold and displayed nationwide through exhibitions, shows, and galleries.
About his art, Steve says: "I look for, and paint, beauty, as a counteracting effect of our media-saturated fascination with ugliness. Yes, the world is a brutal place, but it is also our home. There is peace, serenity, quietude, thoughtfulness, majesty, grace, joy, and hope in this home of ours -and that is what I paint".
Annibale Carracci (1560-1609) was the most admired painter of his time and the vital force in the creation of Baroque style. Together with his cousin Ludovico (1555–1619) and his older brother Agostino (1557-1602) -each an outstanding artist- Annibale set out to transform Italian painting. The Carracci rejected the artificiality of Mannerist painting, championing a return to nature coupled with the study of the great northern Italian painters of the Renaissance, especially Correggio, Titian, and Veronese.

Jozsef Rippl-Ronai (1861-1927) was an Hungarian painter, known for working in the Les Nabis style. He first introduced modern artistic movements in the Hungarian art.
He was born in Kaposvár. After his studies at the High School there, he went to study in Budapest, where he obtained a degree in pharmacology. In 1884 he traveled to Munich to study painting at the Academy. Two years later he obtained a grant which enabled him to move to Paris and study with Munkácsy, the most important Hungarian realist painter.
In 1888 he met the members of Les Nabis and under their influence he painted his first important work, The Inn at Pont-Aven, a deeply felt work notable for its dark atmosphere. His first big success was his painting My Grandmother, 1894. He also painted in a portrait of Hungarian pianist and composer Zdenka Ticharich, 1921.
Italian painter Giovanni Bellini [1430-1516)] was the founder of the Venetian school of painting and raised Venice to a center of Renaissance art that rivaled Florence and Rome. He brought to painting a new degree of realism, a new wealth of subject matter, and a new sensuousness in form and color.
Perhaps more than any other, Giovanni Bellini [Giambellino] was an artist who passed through different periods and cultural revolutions. He, before Leonardo, was the great inventor of the representation of sentiment and nature, painting works of extraordinary poetry, landscapes that brought together everything that had been seen until then in Italy and Europe, with the human figure totally immersed in the surrounding space. These moving, deeply felt scenes are also intimately Venetian - in the softness of the light, in the sober realism of the men and women, in the taste for details of vegetation described in a single botanic identity.

Francesco Lavagna (Napoli 1684-1724) è stato un pittore dalle ottime capacità artistiche, specializzato nel genere pittorico delle nature morte, ma della cui vita conosciamo pochissimi aspetti.

Cloisonnism is a style of Post-Impressionist painting with bold and flat forms separated by dark contours. The term was coined by critic Edouard Dujardin on the occasion of the Salon des Indépendants, in March 1888. This style’s name derives from the historic “cloisonné” enameling technique, in which bands of metal are used to outline areas of uniform color.
In painting, Cloisonnism emerged with Post-Impressionism in the 1880s, most prominently in the work of Émile Bernard and Paul Gauguin. At this time the style was both radical and nostalgic, it brought together influences from both contemporary Japanese prints as well as Gothic art and architecture, abstracting three-dimensional forms to near decorative, flat shapes.

"When I paint, it is my hope to reach beyond the canvas and engage the viewer, to connect on the shared plane of experiences, to nod together and say, "Yes, that is what youth is like, that is what a rose is like, that is what morning light feels like." I seek to create shared moments" - Richard Johnson

I'm graduated at the Illustration Academy in Rome in 2003. Since that time i've been aimed to become an Illustrator for children's books but it's a difficult way and i am doing the best to reach my purpose.
At present, i invest my time in painting following the Impressionism art period inspiration -Renoir, Monet, Lepage, Millet, Carpentier..etc., that i love so much. For painting i utilize the slice rather then the brush, a technical that many oil painters don't use. It's more difficult but the effect makes me glad and really satisfied me.

The Venetian painter Giacomo Favretto (1849-1887) is one of the most important masters of the Italian Nineteenth century, mainly depicting Genre subjects in his native city.
A true “innovator” of the Venetian school during the second half of the century, he both revived and modernised the unique aspects of great Veneto tradition, from Longhi to Tiepolo - that had been abandoned in the first half of the Nineteenth century in favour of paintings of history and landscape.
Born in Venice into a family of humble origin, Favretto enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in 1864, where he trained under Pompeo Molmenti. He was said to have been discovered in a stationer's shop cutting out silhouettes to make a living. By age 30, he had lost sight from one eye.

Born in London in 1938, David Farrant has built a reputation as one of the country’s finest figurative painters. Like Hopper or Vettriano, David is inspired by everyday scenes of human interaction, and he reproduces these against a living background of muted colors and complex shadows.His early career was spent teaching art whilst also working very successfully as a portrait painter. He no longer paints portraits preferring to concentrate on his figurative painting. David works in oil and acrylic; he likes to work on a fairly large format and tries to hint at a story in the composition of the paintings. He gets his inspiration from observing people in everyday situations and the impact of light, especially sunlight, is very apparent in his work.
