Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun

Self Portrait in a Straw Hat c. 1782

 

*This virtual class is designed for intermediate to advanced painters*

Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, known as Madame Le Brun, was a distinguished French portrait painter of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Her style blended elements of Rococo and Neoclassicism, capturing the grace of Rococo while embracing Neoclassical precision. Renowned for her portraits of Marie Antoinette and patronage by European elites, she earned accolades from peers like Joshua Reynolds, who hailed her as one of her era's foremost portraitists akin to the Dutch masters. Vigée Le Brun's impact endures, evident in her election to numerous prestigious art academies and her lasting influence on the art world.

Winterscape Study No. 1

An Orange Underpainting Study 

 

*This virtual class is designed for all levels*

Orange. One of the most favoured underpainting colours for landscape painters. Why? The answer is in the snow and sky. BLUE! Blue and orange are opposites on the colour wheel and work to balance out the cool temperatures in most landscapes. We see a lot of blues, greens and purples in landscapes so having an orange underpainting breathes a bit of warmth and contrast to the cool tones. They "compliment" each other!

Gustav Klimt

Portrait of a Lady

 

*This virtual class is designed for intermediate to advanced painters*

Gustav Klimt's mesmerizing piece, the "Portrait of a Lady," had an unexpected unveiling. This stunning artwork, created between 1916-1917, lay hidden within an alcove, camouflaged by a lush shroud of ivy on the exterior wall of the Ricci-Oddi Gallery of Modern Art in Plaisance, Italy. Despite being a centerpiece of the museum since its opening in 1931, its rediscovery amazed many. This masterpiece, valued at an estimated 60 million euros ($66.5 million), emerged from obscurity, capturing the attention and awe of art enthusiasts worldwide.

Frederic Edwin Church

El Khasné, Petra 

 

*This virtual class is designed for intermediate to advanced painters*

Frederic Edwin Church's "El Khasné, Petra" captures the sandstone-carved Al-Khazneh temple in Petra, Jordan. During his travels in 1867-1868, Church painted the temple, framing it uniquely against dark rock. He found the temple astonishing, describing its salmon-colored glow in his diary. Unlike his panoramic works, this painting narrows in on the temple's entrance through the Siq passage. This significant piece, potentially Church's last completed using only his right hand due to arthritis, is housed at the Olana State Historic Site.
