Some old - sometimes famous - painters from different countries are my special
personal favourites. They influenced me on many ways and I would like to present
them to you - to everyone visiting this site.
I remember my feelings when entering a large exhibition room in one of Denmark’s museums (in Cophenhaven)
– during an exhibition of work by Maurice Esteve. This French painter from the 19-century is one of my greatest
favourites. Clear and bright colours shine from the walls. His paintings are like lamps with a special kind of light
spreading around the feelings of better, happier and more enjoyable life.
My other painter favourites are from different countries and parts of the world - Afro (Basaldella is his real name)
from Italy. It is a pity that this painter is so little known outside his country. From France - Maurice Esteve,
from Belgium - Corneille (Cornelis van Beverloo), from Spain - Miro, from Austria - Hundertwasser,
from Switzerland - Paul Klee, from Poland - Jerzy Nowosielski and from the United States - Marc Rothko
and Kenneth Noland.
They had different styles, often very different compositions and were not always pure abstract-painters,
but all of them have a special attention and focus on colours.
The best and a very right way to present an art-painter is presentation of her/his
art-production. I use here one of functions of the biggest
search-machine on the Internet (searching after images with Google).
If you click on an artist-name in the list below - you can see, via link, some examples
of pictures painted by this selected artist. Sometimes other pictures - not connected
to the current painter - can be presented as well. Sorry - it is difficult
to present only the right material using so simple search and presentation method.
I hope that you appreciate those masters works - as I do. And these links have
an educational function too - by pointing some artists who are not so wide known
in the world as they are in their home-countries or in this part of the world they
are coming from.
Another link, to a very complete presentation of Kenneth Noland, is here:
