Martin Johnson Heade Martin Johnson Heade (1818-1904)
Among nineteenth-century American painters, Martin Johnson Heade was one of the most inventive, versatile, and prolific -- his active career spanned almost seventy years. Between 1871 and 1902, he painted a series of complex compositions that combine hummingbirds and lush tropical flowers, particularly orchids, in landscape settings he had studied on his travels. There are quite simply no other paintings like those known in America or elsewhere.
 
Eugene Boudin Eugene Boudin (1824-1898)
Eugene Boudin was born at Honfleur, Normandy. He was a marine painter who painted outdoors. In 1857 Boudin met Claude Monet who spent several months working directly with Boudin in his studio. He exhibited at the Salons, receiving a third place medal at the Salon of 1881, and a gold medal at the 1889 Exposition Universelle. In 1892 Boudin was made a knight of the Légion d'honneur.
 
Adolphe William Bouguereau Adolphe-William Bouguereau (1825-1905)
As a young man, Bouguereau put himself through the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and created drawings from memory. He made a careful study of form and technique, steeped himself in classical sculpture and painting and worked deliberately and industriously. Before beginning a painting he would master the history of his subject and complete numerous sketches. He portrays children and domestic scenes with tenderness, technical skill and rich color.
 
Frederic Edwin Church Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900)
Frederic Edwin Church was born in Hartford, Connecticut. He was a central figure in the Hudson River School of American landscape painters. In 1870 he began construction of a personal and eclectic castle with magnificent views of the Hudson River and the Catskills that is now a New York State historic site open to the public.
 
Jules Breton Jules Adolphe Aime Louis Breton (1827-1906)
Jules Breton was born in Courrières, a small Pas-de-Calais village. He painted peasant imagery such as poetic renderings of single peasant female figures in a landscape posed against the setting sun. He studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts with de Vigne in Ghent and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He won medals at the Salon for his paintings in the 1840's and 1850's. He continued to exhibit throughout the 1870s and into the 1880s and 1890s and his reputation grew such that he became one of the best known painters of his period in his native France as well as England and the United States. In 1886, he became a member of the Institut de France.
 
Albert Bierstadt Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902)
Bierstadt was born and later educated in Germany, and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts. As one of America's foremost landscape painters he was responsible for shaping a vision of America as the new Eden. His monumental canvases were based upon sketches and photographs he made in 1859, when he accompanied the federally sponsored Lander Survey to the Rocky Mountains.
 
Edgar Degas Edgar Degas (1834-1917)
Degas was born and died in Paris. He is buried at the cemetery of Montmartre. He entered the École des Beaux-Arts and visited Rome and Florence. From 1865 to 1870 he exhibited each year at the Paris Salon. He also exhibited with the Impressionists. Degas assimilated into his mature style English art and Japanese prints. He acquired his enduring reputation as a "painter of dancers" and also painted the café-concert, laundry women, bathers, jockeys and milliners. From the mid-1870's he worked with pastels. He was also a gifted sculptur. He struggled with failing vision and blindness at the end of his life.
 
Lawrence Alma-Tadema Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912)
Born in Dronryp, Holland, Lawrence worked in England until the tragic death of his mistress and muse in 1882. He is interred in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral (London). He painted semi-nudes set against a background of daily life in ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. His work became enormously popular in the United States, where it did much to forge Hollywood's conception of life in ancient times. His pictures were all numbered with Roman numerals, starting with No I when he was 15, and ending with CCCCVIII.
 
Thomas Moran Thomas Moran (1837-1926)
In 1871 Moran went west with the Hayden Expedition to record the wonders of the Yellowstone area, making annotated drawings and watercolors later used to illustrate articles in the popular press as well as the official report. Moran's watercolors convinced the U. S. Congress to set this area aside as America's first national park.
 
Paul Cezanne Paul Cézanne (1839-1906)
Cézanne, a Postimpressionist, so influenced the aesthetic development of 20th centrury art movements he has been called father of modern painting. He challenged the conventional values of painting in the 19th century through insistence on personal expression and on the integrity of the painting itself.
 
Odilon Redon Odilon Redon (1840-1916)
Odilon Redon is a native of Bordeaux. In 1875 he entered the shadowy world of charcoal and the lithographer's stone. The overall effect, imbued with a melancholy passivity, stood outside of trends and movements, as nocturnal, autumnal, and lunar. In the 1890s, commanded by his dreams, he began to use the luminous, musical tones of pastel and oils. The thematic content of his work then became densely mythical, brimming with newfound hope and light.
 
Claude Monet (1840-1926)
Monet was born in Paris, studied for one year at the Académie Suisse in Paris and completed a year's military service in Algeria. He painted directly from nature and used quick brush stokes to record overall effect rather than detail. He and fellow artist, Renoir, did not use black or brown to describe shadows but instead contrasts of juxtapositioned colors.
In 1872 he painted Impression Sunrise, that led to the naming of the Impressionists In the winter of 1875 he painted snow scenes in Argenteuil. He spent 1877 painting the St-Lazare station. In the 1890s he worked hard on several series of paintings depicting haystacks, poplars on the Epte and the façade of Rouen Cathedral. In 1900, he embarked on his two most ambitious projects, the series depicting the Thames and the series depicting his beloved water garden at Giverny, which he continued to work on until his death.
 
Frederic Bazille Frédéric Bazille (1841-1870)
Frédéric Bazille was an Impressionist painter and soldier. Born in Montpellier, Hérault, France, into a middle-class Protestant family, Bazille began studying medicine in 1862, when he met Pierre-Auguste Renoir and was drawn to the Impressionist movement. His career was cut short, when he was killed in action in Beaune-la-Rolande, Loiret during the Franco-Prussian War.
 
Henri Rousseau Henri Rousseau (1844-1910)
Henri, from Laval, France, and dubbed "Le Douanier" (customs officer) after his occupation found primitive art late in life. He at once mastered a landscape formula, and beginning after 1904 created more than twenty large fanatistic jungle paintings. They evidence his mastery of a formal language, oblivious of convention, that owes nothing to traditional methods. The images, smooth, vivid, and clearly defined, are flat and fluid against dense but dimensionless greenery, and although unreal and extraordinary, are rendered in meticulous botanical detail.
 
Mary Cassatt (1844 - 1926)
Cassatt was born in Pittsburg and attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. She traveled extensively through Europe with her parents and siblings and in 1874 she settled permanently in Paris. Although she had several works accepted for exhibition by the tradition-bound French Salon, her artistic aims aligned her with the avant-garde painters of the time and in 1877 she joined the impressionists. Her innovative compositions explore the lives of women - attending the opera, drinking tea, writing letters, caring for children in a straightforward manner free from sentimentality. She created an ambitious mural representing modern woman for the 1893 World's Fair.
 
Gustave Caillebotte Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894)
Gustave Caillebotte's painting style belongs to the school of realism, although he helped organize the first Impressionist painting exhibition and was himself an enthusiastic collector of Impressionist works. He painted portraits and interior scenes, urban life, still lifes, and landscapes and seascapes. Forty of his works now hang in the Musee d'Orsay.
 
William Merritt Chase William Merritt Chase (1849-1916)
William Merritt Chase was born in Willamsburg, Indiana. He established an art school of his own, after teaching with success for some years at the Art Students League. A worker in all media - oils, watercolor, pastel - etching and painting with distinction the figure, landscapes, and still lifes, he is best known for his portraits, his sitters numbering some of the most important men and women of his time.
 
Lovis Corinth (1858-1925)
Lovis Corinth was born in Tapiau, East Prussia (today Gwardeisk in the Russian enclave Kaliningrad Oblast) and died in Zandvoort, Netherlands. He was a German painter who found a synthesis of impressionism and expressionism.
 
Paul Gauguin Paul Gauguin (1848-1903)
Gauguin was born in Paris but lived with his mother in Peru (1851-55). In 1871 he entered the firm of a Paris stockbroker. He painted on Sundays. Gauguin met Pissarro in 1875 and initially Gauguin's work was close to the Impressionists in subject matter and color scheme. He exhibited with the group five times. By 1886 he had abandoned small, visible brush marks in favour of large areas of flat color and introduced an innovative color scheme that suggested a sense of heightened reality. Gauguin called this technique Synthetism and declared that he hoped painting would return to exploring the "interior life of human beings". Starting in 1883 Gauguin had devoted himself solely to painting. His travels to Brittany in 1886 and, a year later, to Martinique and Panama, had led him to be inspired by primitive arts and he looked for ideas in Buddhist temple sculptures, Japanese prints, medieval tapestries, folk art and the architecture of Breton Churches. His work became concerned with dreams, myths and visions, influenced partly by his time in Tahiti, where he moved in 1891.
