Irises
is one of many paintings and prints of irises by the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. Irises was painted while Vincent van Gogh was living at the asylum at Saint Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France, in the last year before his death in 1890.

It was painted before his first attack at the asylum. There is a lack of the high tension which is seen in his later works. He called the painting "the lightning conductor for my illness" because he felt that he could keep himself from going insane by continuing to paint.

The painting was influenced by Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints like many of his works and those by other artists of the time. The similarities occur with strong outlines, unusual angles, including close-up views, and also flattish local colour (not modelled according to the fall of light).

He considered this painting a study which is probably why there are no known drawings for it, although Theo, Van Gogh's brother, thought better of it and quickly submitted it to the annual exhibition of the Société des Artistes Indépendants in September 1889, together with Starry Night Over the Rhone. He wrote to Vincent of the exhibition: "[It] strikes the eye from afar. The Irises are a beautiful study full of air and life."

Vincent Willem van Gogh Dutch:
(30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890) was a Dutch post-Impressionist painter whose work had far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. His output includes portraits, self portraits, landscapes, still lifes, olive trees and cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers. Critics largely ignored his work until after his presumed suicide in 1890. His short life, expressive and spontaneous use of vivid colours, broad oil brushstrokes and emotive subject matter, mean he is recognisable both in the modern public imagination as the quintessential misunderstood genius.
was born to religious upper middle class parents. He was driven as an adult by a strong sense of purpose, but was also thoughtful and intellectual; he was equally aware of modernist currents in art, music and literature. He was well travelled and spent several years in his 20s working for a firm of art dealers in The Hague, London and Paris, after which he taught in England at Isleworth and Ramsgate. He drew as a child, but spent years drifting in ill health and solitude, and did not paint until his late twenties. Most of his best-known works were completed during the last two years of his life. Deeply religious as a younger man, he worked from 1879 as a missionary in a mining region in Belgium where he sketched people from the local community. His first major work was 1885's The Potato Eaters, from a time when his palette mainly consisted of sombre earth tones and showed no sign of the vivid colouration that distinguished his later paintings. In March 1886, he moved to Paris and discovered the French Impressionists. Later, he moved to the south of France and was inspired by the region's strong sunlight. His paintings grew brighter in colour, and he developed the unique and highly recognisable style that became fully realised during his stay in Arles in 1888. In just over a decade, he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings. After years of anxiety and frequent bouts of mental illness he died aged 37 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The extent to which his mental health affected his painting has been widely debated.

The widespread and popular realisation of his significance in the history of modern art began after his adoption by the early 20th-century German Expressionists and Fauves. Despite a widespread tendency to romanticise his ill health, art historians see an artist deeply frustrated by the inactivity and incoherence caused by frequent mental sickness. His posthumous reputation grew steadily; a romanticised version developed in the 20 years after his death when seen as an important but overlooked artist compared to other members of his generation. His reputation advanced with the emergence of the Fauvist movement in Europe and post WWII American respect for symbols of "heroic individualism" that was attractive to early US modernists and especially to the highly successful abstract expressionists of the 1950s; New York's MOMA launched major retrospectives early in the rehabilitation of his reputation, and made large acquisitions. By this stage his standing as a great artist and the romanticism of his life were firmly established.

... WHEN COUNTRYSIDE IS A REAL ART WORK ITSELF...

Oscar-Claude Monet
(14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926)
was a founder of French Impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. The term "Impressionism" is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris.

Monet's ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons. From 1883 Monet lived in Giverny, where he purchased a house and property, and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. In 1899 he began painting the water lilies, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature, and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years of his life.

Coquelicots

A son retour d'Angleterre en 1871, Monet s'installe à Argenteuil et y résidera jusqu'en 1878. Ces années correspondent à une période d'épanouissement. Soutenu par son marchand, Paul Durand-Ruel, Monet trouve également, dans la région qu'il habite, les paysages lumineux qui lui permettent d'explorer les possibilités d'une peinture de plein air.

Il présente les Coquelicots au public lors de la première exposition du groupe impressionniste dans les anciens ateliers du photographe Nadar en 1874. La toile est devenue aujourd'hui l'une des plus célèbres. Elle évoque l'atmosphère vibrante d'une promenade à travers champs lors d'une journée d'été.

Monet dilue les contours et construit une rythmique colorée à partir de l'évocation des coquelicots, par des taches dont le format démesuré, au premier plan, montre la primauté accordée à l'impression visuelle. Ainsi un premier pas vers l'abstraction est-il franchi.
Dans ce paysage, les deux couples mère et enfant du premier et du deuxième plan ne sont qu'un prétexte à la mise en place d'une oblique qui structure le tableau. Deux zones distinctes du point de vue de la gamme des couleurs sont ainsi définies, l'une dominée par le rouge, l'autre par un vert bleuté. La jeune femme à l'ombrelle et l'enfant du premier plan sont sans doute Camille, la femme de l'artiste, et leur fils Jean.

Giovanni Fattori
(Livorno, September 6, 1825 – Firenze, August 30, 1908) was an Italian artist, one of the leaders of the group known as the Macchiaioli. He was initially a painter of historical themes and military subjects. In his middle years, inspired by the Barbizon school, he became one of the leading Italian plein-airists, painting landscapes, rural scenes, and scenes of military life. After 1884, he devoted much energy to etching.

*******************************************
Giovanni Fattori
(Livourne, 1825 - Florence, 1908) est un peintre un dessinateur, et un aquafortiste italien du XIXe siècle. C'est le plus important représentant des Macchiaioli.
Giovanni Fattori commence sa carrière avec des œuvres historiques à sujets romanesques (Marie Stuart au camp de Crookstone, Florence, Galerie d'Art moderne), atteignant d'excellents effets naturalistes dans Le Camp italien après la bataille de Magenta (1861, Florence, Galerie d'Art moderne).
Il abandonne progressivement les clairs-obscurs romantiques pour des contrastes de taches de lumière-couleur d'une grande précision (Femme au soleil, 1866, Milan, collection Jucker). Des thèmes constants dans l'œuvre de Fattori sont les paysages et les habitants de la Maremme (Les Gardiens de troupeaux, 1893, Livourne, Musée Fattoriano) et la vie militaire (L'Homme qui a perdu son étrier, 1882, Florence, Galerie d'Art moderne). Il réalise également des aquarelles et des eaux-fortes.

Vincent Willem van Gogh
30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of them in the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. His suicide at 37 followed years of mental illness and poverty.

Born into an upper-middle-class family, Van Gogh drew as a child and was serious, quiet and thoughtful. As a young man he worked as an art dealer, often travelling, but became depressed after he was transferred to London. He turned to religion, and spent time as a Protestant missionary in southern Belgium. He drifted in ill health and solitude before taking up painting in 1881, having moved back home with his parents. His younger brother Theo supported him financially, and the two kept up a long correspondence by letter. His early works, mostly still lifes and depictions of peasant labourers, contain few signs of the vivid colour that distinguished his later work. In 1886, he moved to Paris, where he met members of the avant-garde, including Émile Bernard and Paul Gauguin, who were reacting against the Impressionist sensibility. As his work developed he created a new approach to still lifes and local landscapes. His paintings grew brighter in colour as he developed a style that became fully realised during his stay in Arles in the south of France in 1888. During this period he broadened his subject matter to include series of olive trees, wheat fields and sunflowers.
