World Art Masterpieces: Claude Monet Paintings
Written by Helen   
Thursday, 06 February 2014

"Oscar-Claude Monet 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."

Written by Helen   
Monday, 13 January 2014

The Chrysanthemum Ball is an incredibly bright annual holiday that takes place in the Nikitsky Botanical Garden, situated near Yalta, and attracts tens of thousands of tourists. It is usually held from mid-October until mid-November.

Botanical garden’s employees traditionally plant more than 300 kinds of these amazing flowers having different colors, shapes and sizes. The festival ends with selection of the most beautiful chrysanthemum, which gets the title of the Ball’s Queen. The rose exhibition ‘Garden of Eden’ will take place at the same time as the Chrysanthemum Ball in the Nikitsky Botanical Garden. In addition, one can admire blossoming of the giant Furcraea.

The annual Chrysanthemum Ball is carried out since 1953. At that time chrysanthemums were brought from China and the first exhibition was organized.

Written by Helen   
Thursday, 26 December 2013

Gleb Goloubetski was born in 1975 in Omsk, Russia, a Siberian town. His father, who died when Gleb was six, was a merited artist of the Soviet Union, and his grandfather was an architect. His mother currently owns a gallery in Omsk.

Gleb's talent was discovered during his early childhood and he began selling his work at the age of 15. He studied at an art academy in St Petersburg, and from 1989 to 1995 continued as a student in the master class of Valerij Kullkov.

Gleb spends weeks at a time in Greece, Italy, Egypt, Thailand, Maledives, and Brazil painting interesting houses, flowers, interiors, and the contrast of light and dark.

Goloubetski shows his work in Prague, where he currently lives, as well as Germany and London. His paintings are also kept in private collections in many countries around the world.
