Édouard Leon Cortès was a French impressionist artist of French and Spanish ancestry. He is known as "Le Poete Parisien de la Peinture" or "the Parisian Poet of Painting" because of his beautiful and diverse Paris cityscapes in a variety of weather and night settings. He also painted many landscapes and interiors in the Normandy and Brittany areas.

His paintings are created with impressionistic brushstrokes and bright colors; even when he paints his evening scenes, Cortès always adds a few of his signature colors – red, yellow and blue – in a window, shop sign or gas lantern.

Outstanding Sea Paintings by Ivan Aivazovsky
Written by Helen   
Thursday, 12 March 2009

Ivan Aivazovsky is the most interesting phenomenon of 19th century art. He gained international fame at the age of 25, was elected a member to five European Academies and was awarded the medal of the French Legion of Honor. Delacroix referred to him in reverence and Turner called him a genius.

Aivazovsky's name is intricately bound with the sea. "Perhaps no one in Europe has painted the extraordinary beauty of the sea with so much feeling and expressiveness as Aivazovsky has", writes V. Adasov.

In his best seascapes (and in a legacy of about 6000, there are some works which condescend to his artistic ability and others which merit singular artistic attention) he has
revealed his inner self through the spirit of the times, his ideals of humanism, and the love of freedom. The Artist lived by those ideals; the love that he had towards the oppressed, the help he offered and the work that he did for the public good make him an exceptional individual and a true son of his times.

Fantastic Sally Swatland Paintings: Children on the Beach
Written by Emily   
Saturday, 24 January 2009

Images of the sea have long captivated our imagination and have been a popular source of inspiration for artists who have found a sympathetic audience with their work. Contemporarily, Sally Swatland’s images of young children playing on the beaches are tinged with a sense of nostalgia that reminds us of a bygone time, when a day at the beach offered respite from the busyness of daily life. Her sensitive images evoke the reminiscences of a period when life was uncomplicated and happiness was found in the simplest of activities. This is just one of the aspects of Sally’s work that audiences are drawn to - the sense that through her pictures one can retreat into the past. Her light-filled palette of rich colors also expresses the richness of a flowering garden and the breeze of a summer day. Her work has become highly sought after for these qualities which are inherent in her work.

"My favorite images are of children playing along the water's edge, mirrored by bright and colorful reflections".

~ Sally Swatland

Magnificent Oil Paintings by Leonid Afremov. Part 1
Written by Emily   
Sunday, 11 January 2009

Leonid Afremov is a Belarus born, Israeli modern painter who creates unique landscapes, cityscapes and figures using a palette knife rather than a brush to paint.

"I tried different techniques during my career, but I especially fell in love with painting with oil and pallette-knife. Every artwork is the result of long painting process; every canvas is born during the creative search; every painting is full of my inner world. Each of my paintings brings different mood, colors and emotions. I love to express the beauty, harmony and spirit of this world in my paintings. My heart is completely open to art. Thus, I enjoy creating inspired and beautiful paintings from the bottom of my soul. Each of my artworks reflects my feelings, sensitivity, passion, and the music from my soul. True art is alive and inspired by humanity. I believe that art helps us to be free from aggression and depression."

~ Leonid Afremov
