Posted: April 22, 2017 10:02 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

It is this legendary power and spirit that English animal portraitist Sir Edwin Henry Landseer captured in every masterpiece he composed. The son of an accomplished engraver, Landseer demonstrat...

Posted: March 29, 2016 11:40 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Late Afternoon Gloucester by Childe Hassam, circa 1896

Majesty, Captured: American Impressionism

Posted: June 24, 2015 13:53 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Sun-drenched landscapes. Intimate domestic scenes. Bustling cityscapes. Viewed through the canvasses of the American Impressionists, the American experience is undeniably as diverse and compelling as the American spirit itself. While the Impressionist movement began as a distinctly French style, French-trained American artists of the late nineteenth century thrived in the United States, translating the lightly brushed, dynamic canvasses of their French compatriots into a manifestly American idiom. Simultaneously nationalistic, optimistic and nostalgic, these remarkable artists captured a s...

A Lasting Impression: Rembrandt's Incredible Etchings

Posted: January 02, 2015 12:00 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Rembrandt is one of the greatest artists in history, with his name alone being synonymous with fine art itself.  His portraits and genre scenes are iconic, enriched with a level of realism that gives them an exquisite ethereal quality unmatched by any other artist before or since. Yet, few realize that Rembrandt was also a master etcher, and is responsible for not only creating some of the most amazing etchings in history, but he also evolved and gave new life to the entire process of printmaking.   Rembrandt’s painting and etching careers run parallel, and in many cases, i...

Posted: November 03, 2014 09:25 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Truth to Nature: The Paintings of John Atkinson Grimshaw

Posted: September 17, 2014 15:33 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

The consummate, self-taught Victorian artist John Atkinson Grimshaw possessed an unquestionable gift for painting. The influence of the Pre-Raphaelite Movement is apparent throughout Grimshaw’s oeuvre, and he worked these ideals to create awe-inspiring land and cityscapes unlike any artist before or since. Disappointed by the “mechanized” ideologies of academic art, the Pre-Raphaelites utilized exacting details, luminous palettes and sincerity to subject that ushered in a new era of expression in the 19th-century British art world. Grimshaw took their teachings and used them to craft am...
