Childe Hassam | Paris painting


In 1886, American painter Childe Hassam (1859-1935)🎨 had moved to France to study figure drawing and painting at the prestigious Académie Julian.
He took advantage of the formal drawing classes with Gustave Boulanger and Jules Joseph Lefebvre🎨, but quickly moved on to self-study, finding that "the Julian academy is the personification of routine...[academic training] crushes all originality out of growing men. It tends to put them in a rut and it keeps them in it", preferring instead, "my own method in the same degree".

George Inness | Quotes / Aforismi | Page²


The greatness of art is not in the display of knowledge, or in material accuracy, but in the distinctness with which it conveys the impressions of a personal vital force, that acts spontaneously, without fear or hesitation.
La grandezza dell'arte non è nell'esposizione della conoscenza, né nella precisione materiale, ma nella distinzione con cui trasmette le impressioni di una forza vitale personale, che agisce spontaneamente, senza paura o esitazione.

You must suggest to me reality - you can never show me reality.
Devi suggerirmi la realtà - non puoi mai mostrarmi la realtà.

George Inness | Quotes / Aforismi

George Inness🎨 (1825-1894) was an American artist🎨 whose landscapes melded the paint handling of the French Barbizon School🎨 with subject matter specific to the changing American countryside.

The true use of art is, first, to cultivate the artist's own spiritual nature.
Il vero uso dell'arte è, in primo luogo, coltivare la natura spirituale dell'artista.

The true end of art is not to imitate a fixed material condition, but to represent a living emotion.

La vera fine dell'Arte non è imitare una condizione materiale fissa, ma rappresentare un movimento vivente.

John Constable RA | Romantic painter

John Constable (1776-1837) is famous for his landscapes, which are mostly of the Suffolk countryside, where he was born and lived.
He made many open-air sketches, using these as a basis for his large exhibition paintings, which were worked up in the studio.
His pictures are extremely popular today, but they were not particularly well received in England during his lifetime.
He did, however, have considerable success in Paris.
Constable was born in East Bergholt, Suffolk.
He was largely self-taught, and developed slowly.
In 1799 he was a probationer, and in 1800 a student at the Royal Academy schools.

Julien Dupré (March 18, 1851 - April 16, 1910) was a French painter🎨.
He was born in Paris on March 18, 1851 to Jean Dupré (a jeweler) and Pauline Bouillié and began his adult life working in a lace shop in anticipation of entering his family's jewelry business.
The war of 1870 and the siege of Paris forced the closure of the shop and Julien began taking evening courses at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs and it was through these classes that he gained admission to the École des Beaux-Arts.
