These simple sunflowers in a vase, the brilliance of them touch the heartstrings of the viewers. Van Gogh applied broad, gestural brush strokes to the painting, making the oil paintings looks like a relief sculpture. Yellow and brown colors as well as the drawing techniques show the viewers a dreamland full of beauty, sunshine and hope. However, when drawing this for the same time, though the artist tried to seize the doom of this world, it slowly but mercilessly slips away. Perhaps this painting’s superficially reflects his psychological state of this period when his short and tragic life came to the end. He was a lover of nature and always found the pure beauty from the simple things. He once said that he would rather draw the shadows of the trees outside of the window than the imaginary phantom.

Though Van Gogh’s art is great, during his lifetime, however, has not been recognized by the public. It is very unacceptable as his works contained a profound tragedy consciousness and strong individuality. His pursuit of the unique artistic form was unprecedented. His seize his object from the environment and recreate the reality of the object in order to achieve real and true, leading to the birth of expressionism. Though people had profound misunderstanding on him and his art, he was very confident of himself and his artistic talent. That’s why he left us so many eternal artworks. He directly influenced the French Fauvism and Expressionism in Germany even the earlier 20th century art, lyrical abstract portrait. “Sunflower” was created in the bright sunshine in the south France. The painter liked flashing flames raging so full of blazing passion. The brush strokes were broad, dynamic and powerful; the colors contrast was so strong and pure. However, in this broad brush strokes and simple contrast, we can see the wisdom and artistic talent of the painter. In a word, Van Gogh ’s sunflower is not just a plant but a living form full of impulse and passion.

aelbert The recognition of a masterpiece: Print, Claude Monet Sunrise Jul 6th, 2010 3:28:43 am - Subscribe
Claude Monet was a founder and representative of French impressionist painting. The term Impressionism from the title of his masterpiece: Impression is, was painted in 1872, Sunrise. What follows is a brief analysis of this table. Impression, Sunrise is a landscape of Le Havre. true to the visual impression of light and colors of the sunrise from the French port city is represented for the artist. Monet explained the title later: Landscape is an impression, and an overview of one, so that this label was given to us, probably my fault. I sent a thing done in Le Havre, from my window the sun in the fog and a pole of some boats in foregroundThey asked me for a catalog title Excel couldnt really made a point of view of Havre, said sales of pressure. B ike broke the shackles of traditional painting, the art critic Louis Leroy, that the term Impressionism has marked as the contempt, but the Impressionists, which suits them. Louis Leroy wrote: Printing CI was confident. I have just told me that I am impressed because some impression had to be in Itanda what freedom, what the design of the facility! Wallpaper in its embryonic state over the lakes is ready. In the second half of the 19th Century optical theory, the traditional concept of artists of color changes, of course, he began a new expedition to the outer surface of the art. Sunrise, pressure is the morning mist shrouded harbor scene in the morning twilight. For Use of the composition of purple, red, slip blue-gray and orange and red sun a bright orange and yellow rays of the waves, slowly out. The sea, sky and landscape in a relaxed style, they seem in love. The three ships are not too far from the shore, gradually merging into the fog.

The distant buildings, ports, bridges, boats, masts, etc., are also looming in the twilight of the morning … All of this is the scene that the painter was through a window. He painted a scene of misty shots chaotic and mixing. This is absolutely a betrayal of the art for the academic artists. The painting is a visual experience and instant mood expresses great painter. The respected academic art careful and clear design, color, rigid and boring. Compared to academic art, this painting is a rebellion in fat, making it the official opposition.

He also painted a oil paintings titled Sunset at the same place. sent at the first Impressionist exhibition, the two images are both untitled. A journalist made a leap that Monet’s paintings are the negation of beauty and truth, only perception. While Monet’s painting entitled Impression, Sunrise. As a marine painting, the whole screen in thin gray lines that are very random and chaotic is packaged, thereby blurring. At sunrise, the sea is covered with fog, and the water reflects light from the sky and the sun. The landscape is dark and foggy to know people a momentary and dreamy quality.
