Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Oldies and Goodies-Mar 7 to mar 20- (DAUMIER)

The artist for the next two weeks is HONORE VICTORIN DAUMIER.

HONORE DAUMIER (1808-1879)

French painter, caricaturist, graphic artist and sculptor. Trained in Paris and attracted to lithography, Daumier made his living, from 1830, with cartoons in satirical journals.

When he attempted serious oil painting, around 1848, he found his fame as a left wing cartoonist hampered him.

Since his death he has been recognized as a pioneer, chiefly of Expressionism.

I picked two paintings, because I lwasn't sure which one I wanted to do, but please feel free to choose your own Daumier, and post for us to see.



The Beggars-1845...and



Reader-watercolor and plume.

Here are some links:

http://www.daumier.org
http://www.artcyclopedia.com/artists...er_honore.html
http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honore_Daumier

and there is always Google images. Have fun...Janet

Re: Oldies and Goodies-Mar 7 to mar 20

Just a little aside...... My father was a lithographer, painter and cartoonist and Daumier was his favorite artist and inspiration.
A reproduction of this painting hung in our living room while I was growing up and used to scare me, I don't know why, when I was very little.



I inherited eight books on Daumier, and I mean BIG BOOKS! Hauled them out to look through when I knew we would be doing this project.

Here's my Daumier study: which was great fun to paint. I used ink, and watercolour for the lemon touches.

Re: Oldies and Goodies-Mar 7 to mar 20- (DAUMIER)

Nice tribute!
He really looks like he's blending into the whole scene...part of the whole living landscape at it's best.... an alive and breathing, aware one!
Like your subtle, reflective tones...

Thanks wildgoose. I like this piece by Daumier. It was interesting to do the lines and then work with the shadow areas separately on top of the line drawing. Also interesting to see how much is not actually there..our mind fills in the 'gaps'.

Re: Oldies and Goodies-Mar 7 to mar 20- (DAUMIER)

I love this watercolor, so well copied by June. Couldn't find any other watercolors by Daumier done in this flowing loose way, though I'm still looking.

Hope to get something posted this week, even if it's just one of the cartoons.

Meant to thank you June, for adding the Daumier to the thread title. Noticed the omission the minute after I posted.

Again, June, lovely work.

Re: Oldies and Goodies-Mar 7 to mar 20- (DAUMIER)

Good job Azul. I hope to get something up this weekend, but if nothing else, I've had a lot of fun looking at Daumier images and reading about his life.

One of the links I posted has a time line along side the events in D's life. It gives you an idea of what was going on in politics and the arts at that time. I really like the idea and wish they would do that on other artists.

I'll get up early tomorrow and post something.

Re: Oldies and Goodies-Mar 7 to mar 20- (DAUMIER)

Thanks June and Janet - I like the colors and faces well enough but the bodies do not meld into the cohesive lump like his do.

He has lots of work I would love to study.......definitely gotta revisit this one.
