Watch Picasso Create Entire Paintings in Magnificent Time-Lapse Film (1956)

Watch Picasso Create Entire Paintings in Magnificent Time-Lapse Film (1956) | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

How did Pablo Picasso do it? Art historians have spent much time and many words answering that question, but in the video above, you can watch the painter in the act of creation — or, rather, you can watch a series of his paintings as they come into being, evolving from spare but evocative collections of marker strokes into complete images, alive with color. We see Picasso’s visual ideas emerge, and then we see him refine and revise them, sometimes toward a surprising result. All of this happens in under two minutes, since filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot shot the artist working with time-lapse photography, compressing each creative process into mere seconds.

VIDEO: The “Phantasmatical: Self Portraits” of Anne Harris

VIDEO: The “Phantasmatical: Self Portraits” of Anne Harris | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

The unusual and fantastical silhouettes in Anne Harris’ oil paintings stem from a personal place. In “Phantasmatical: Self-Portraits” at New York's Alexandre Gallery, Harris depicts the emotional and physical facets of women at middle age in a series of new paintings. Both liberating and vulnerable, these nude portraits appear to emerge from thin air and teeter in a state of obscurity and visibility, emphasizing the notion of a maturing woman “being exposed but not looked at.” Harris shared with BLOUIN ARTINFO her personal experiences that led to the visceral self-portraits.

Getty Search Gateway

Getty Search Gateway | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

The Getty Search Gateway allows users to search across several of the Getty repositories, including collections databases, library catalogs, collection inventories, and archival finding aids.

This tool is designed to help researchers, scholars, and educators discover the variety of resources available across the Getty's collections, which include collections in each the four programs: the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Conservation Institute, the Getty Foundation, and the Getty Research Institute. Users can use the tool to browse our collections broadly, by type of resource (i.e., paintings, books, archives), or to search directly for assets related to very specific subjects—historical periods, artists, object types, etc.

While users can search some of these collections individually using online search engines associated with the specific repository, Getty Search Gateway brings records from several of these databases together under one umbrella. Most of these repositories are not searchable through the Getty website's search tool, and some are only searchable here through Getty Search Gateway.
