Pro Art Gallery will place the spotlight on works that began in the late 1900s including stellar examples of post-impressionism by Henri Matisse, Suzanne Valadon, Francois Gall, Fernando Botero, Raoul Dufy... The exhibition will also focus on ideas that contributed to the development and rejection of later art movements such as cubism, surrealism, pop art to name some. Offering a typical cross-section of various oeuvre, the works on display span the arc from oil and acrylic paintings to lithographs, illustrations, engravings and aquatint.
The 20th-century Western paintings at the exhibition covers the heritage of painters like Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec all of whom were essential for the development of modern art. At the beginning of the 20th century Henri Matisse and several other young artists including the pre-cubist Georges Braque, André Derain, Raoul Dufy and Maurice de Vlaminck revolutionized the Paris art world with "wild", multi-colored, expressive, landscapes and figure paintings that the critics called Fauvism which was a key point in the development of modern painting.
He is a Colombian artist known for his paintings and sculptures of inflated human and animal shapes.
As a youth, Botero attended a school for matadors for several years, but his true interest was in art. While still a teenager, he began painting and was inspired by the pre-Columbian and Spanish. His own paintings were first exhibited in 1948, and two years later, in Bogotá, he had his first one-man show. While studying painting in Madrid in the early 1950s, he made his living by copying paintings housed in the Prado Museum—particularly those of his idols at the time, Francisco de Goyaand Diego Velázquez—and selling them to tourists. He spent much of the rest of the decade studying the art treasures of Paris and Florence.
He was a French painter and sculptor, and also one of the inventors of Cubism along with Pablo Picasso. Henri Matisse was eventually recognized as the leader of Les Fauves, or "The Wild Beasts," and like the group of painters, he emphasized the use of intense color as a vehicle for describing light and space, as well as for communicating the artist's emotional state.
Matisse is represented with an artwork, titled “Teeny In 1929 Teeny married Pierre Matisse, the youngest son of Fauve artist Henri Matisse. They had three children: Jacqueline, Paul, and Peter. Throughout 1938, Henri Matisse made a series of portrait sketches of Alexina.
His paintings are organized against flat neutral backgrounds and are painted in a limited range of bright colours, especially blue, red, yellow, green, and black. Amorphous amoebic shapes alternate with sharply drawn lines, spots, and curlicues, all positioned on the canvas with seeming nonchalance. Miró later produced highly generalized, ethereal works in which his organic forms and figures are reduced to abstract spots, lines, and bursts of colours.
In 1973, Joan Miró began publishing his print work at Sala Gaspar in Barcelona, including the series of thirteen etchings Barcelona 1972-1973. The same year, he also worked on “Oda a Joan Mir by Joan Brossa. Brossa brought to the project his visual poetry, while Joan Mirs contribution was to be in Brossa’s words “a kind of parallel music keeping both contents separate.
He was a Russian-born French painter and designer, distinguished for his surrealistic inventiveness. He is recognized as one of the most significant painters and graphic artists of the 20th century. His work treats subjects in a vein of humor and fantasy that draws deeply on the resources of the unconscious. Chagall's distinctive use of color and form is derived partly from Russian expressionism and was influenced decisively by French cubism.
He is among the most versatile and prolific artists of the 20th century. He successfully turned to sculpture, printmaking, fashion, advertising, writing, and, perhaps most famously, filmmaking in his collaborations with Luis Bunuel and Alfred Hitchcock. Dali was renowned for his flamboyant personality as much as for his undeniable technical virtuosity. In his early use of organic morphology, his work bears the stamp of fellow Spaniards Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. His paintings also evince a fascination for Classical and Renaissance art, clearly visible through his hyper-realistic style and religious symbolism of his later work.
