Artist Chris Rigby

Artist Chris Rigby | British Landscape Painting | Scoop.it
My interest quickly went through the ages to (not so old) masters such as Cezanne. In his work I saw a directness; honesty. 'You know where you stand with Cezanne' was always my feeling. Previously Cezanne (and others even easier to access) had been something of an enigma to me but once I got it, once I 'got' Cezanne it was like having a conjurers trick revealed to me. The thing is, the only person hiding the trick from me was myself. There wasn no trick. Perhaps it's because we are brought up in a world reliant on deception. Perhaps self deception is all part of the human psyche, it does feel like life is a process of pulling the scales from ones eyes, but Cezanne was pulling no punches. He layed it all out before me and all I had to do was open my eyes and let it in. In a nutshell that is my whole trip. Opening my eyes. Keeping my eyes and soul open to the endless possibility.

Dorset Landscape | Online exhibitions from the art collections at Tullie House

Dorset Landscape | Online exhibitions from the art collections at Tullie House | British Landscape Painting | Scoop.it

Dorset Landscape, about 1930 oil on canvas by John Nash (1893-1977).

Summertime with deep shadow in foreground; a dense clump of trees beside a stream, seen from an elevated perspective. Trees lean to the left in a strong wind. Beyond rises a small steep hill most of which is tilled for cultivation except for the summit which is left undisturbed. On it stands a small lone tree.

John Nash, the brother of Paul Nash, is one of the most important landscape painters of the 20th century. He had no formal artistic training and besides painting he was also a plantsman and book illustrator. He lived on the Stour Valley on the Suffolk/Essex border, a landscape made famous by two of Britain’s most important landscape painters: Gainsborough and Constable. Nash was not inspired by the landscape paintings of other artists however. His deep empathy with the countryside informed his approach to landscape painting. He painted what he saw. This painting is based on a watercolour that Nash would have painted on the spot on one of his painting trips to Dorset. It shows a well managed modern agricultural landscape.

Tate Liverpool| Future Exhibitions | Turner Monet Twombly

Tate Liverpool| Future Exhibitions | Turner Monet Twombly | British Landscape Painting | Scoop.it

Don’t miss Turner Monet Twombly at Tate Liverpool this summer, your only chance to see this stunning exhibition in the UK.

This ambitious exhibition brings together works by J.M.W. Turner (1775–1851), Claude Monet (1840–1926) and Cy Twombly (1928–2011), three of the most prolific and well-known artists of all time. Turner Monet Twombly will explore the similarities between these artists in style, subject and artistic motivation.

Featuring iconic works such as Monet’s fabulous Water Lilies and Turner’s much loved romantic landscapes, the exhibition will also showcase Cy Twombly’s recent paintings of blooms, shown in the UK for the first time.

Alongside Turner’s compelling, atmospheric works and the beautiful and emotive art of Monet, Twombly’s original contemporary style adds a fresh and exciting dimension to the exhibition.

For those already familiar with the artists’ work, this exhibition will be a revelation; for new audiences, it is a fascinating introduction. Not to be missed.

The exhibition is organised by Moderna Museet, Stockholm in collaboration with Tate Liverpool and Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.

John Piper: painting the British landscape in wartime | Tate Blog

John Piper: painting the British landscape in wartime | Tate Blog | British Landscape Painting | Scoop.it
This view in Snowdonia is characteristic of the wartime phase of Neo-Romanticism, a tendency that combined an interest in the dramatic, ‘Sublime‘ aspects of the Romanticism of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with a sometimes disturbing modern psychological sensibility. Piper, who spent much of the time in North Wales in the 1940s, knew and admired the rugged Welsh mountain landscapes of Richard Wilson. James Ward’s monumental painting Gordale Scar, (c1812-14) may have been another influence

Great Works: Cloud Study, 1821 (24.8cm x 30.2cm), John Constable | British Landscape Painting | Scoop.it
With John Constable, we often have to be a little wary of the set-piece ventures, those moments when he is evidently painting to impress. Some of his so called "six-footers" of the 1820s are such works.
