Sir George Clausen, "Brown Eyes" (1891) (Tate Britain, 13 July 2014) This is a portrait of a local girl from the village of Cookham in Berkshire, where the artist was living in 1891. Clausen started painting open-air ‘rural naturalist’ subjects from 1880, in imitation of the French painter Jules Bastien-Lepage. The delicate play of light across the model’s features, together with the flicked Impressionist brushwork in the background, suggest both the freshness and ephemerality of youth.
Andre Derain (1880-1954) French Fauvist Painter who was influenced by Neo-Impressionism, a style in which a painting is made up of small dots of colour. Derain became familiar with this style through the work of Paul Signac (1863-1935), a major artist whom Matisse had befriended and visited in the southern French village of Saint-Tropez.
Daniel Garber (1880-1958) was an American Impressionist landscape painter and member of the art colony at New Hope, Pennsylvania. He is best known today for his large impressionist scenes of the New Hope area. He also painted figurative interior works and excelled at etching. In addition to his painting career, Garber taught art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts for over forty years. (Wikipedia) ("Tohicken" by Daniel Garber)
Colloiure Andre Derain : (1880-1954): French painter, sculptor, illustrator, stage designer and collector. He was a leading exponent of Fauvism. In early 1908 he destroyed most of his work to concentrate on tightly constructed landscape paintings, which were a subtle investigation of the work of Cézanne. After World War I his work became more classical, influenced by the work of such artists as Camille Corot. In his sculpture he drew upon his knowledge and collection of non-Western art.
