Anne Bachelier, 1949 | Surrealist /Visionary painter

French painter and illustrator Anne Bachelier, was born in Louvigne du Desert, France.
Metamorphosis, transition, and evolution provide the common threads of the art of Anne Bachelier. The artist captivates her audience with compelling, highly imaginative images that are distinct, unique, inventive and immediately recognizable.
Her metaphysical, dream-like fantasies evoke feelings simultaneously powerful, peaceful, and protective. This unique "other" world, untouched by time or place, reminds the viewer of the eternal dance of transformation and regeneration.

William Blake | Symbolist painter

Tigre! Tigre! divampante fulgore
Nelle foreste della notte,
Quale fu l'immortale mano o l'occhio
Ch'ebbe la forza di formare

La tua agghiacciante simmetria?
Amor non cerca di compiacer se stesso
Né per se stesso ha cura
Ma per un altro ogni favor rassegna
E il Cielo erige in un oscuro inferno.
William Blake 1757-1827 | British Romantic era Poet and painter

Craig Mooney | Abstract Landscape/ Figurative painter

Craig Mooney makes paintings of dramatic moments and heightened emotionality that are known for being expansive and expressive. Though a representational painter, the artist incorporates a myriad of abstract qualities throughout his paintings.
In his figurative work, Mooney romanticizes his subjects and presents them in an atmospheric lens that is best described as dreamlike.
His paintings appear to be capturing a moment suspended in time. While his work feels familiar, it is not specific. Rather it is, on a very basic level, symbolism of what could have been, has been or will be...

Amedeo Modigliani | Portrait of Paulette Jourdain, 1919

One of the last paintings created by Modigliani, the Portrait of Paulette Jourdain is an outstanding example of the artist’s work. Pauline "Paulette" Jourdain was the housemaid and later the lover of Modigliani’s dealer Léopold Zborowski.
She is painted on one of the largest canvases used by the artist in a completely frontal, stately manner that directly engages the viewer. She is presented with great dignity and presence, commanding our attention and respect.
The rich colors, transcendent light and dynamic surface further transform this painting into a masterwork. The painting demonstrates well how the artist assimilated a broad range of influences from African art to Old Master paintings to create his own unique, sophisticated vision.

Amedeo Modigliani | Quotes / Aforismi

  • When I know your soul, I will paint your eyes.
  • Quando conoscerò la tua anima, dipingerò i tuoi occhi.
  • It is your duty in life to save your dream.
  • Il tuo unico dovere è salvare i tuoi sogni.

Antonio Canova | Paolina Borghese, 1805-1808

The reclining Paolina Borghese as Venus Victrix in the center of the room holds an apple in her hand, evoking the Venus Victrix in the judgement of Paris, who was chosen to settle a dispute between Juno (power), Minerva (arts and science) and Venus (love).
The same subject was painted on the ceiling by Domenico de Angelis (1779), framed by Giovan Battista Marchetti's tromp d'oeil architecture, and was inspired by a famous relief on the façade of the Villa Medici.
This marble statue of Pauline in a highly refined pose is considered a supreme example of the Neoclassical style.
