ART MASTERPIECES in the Philadelphia Museum of Art include:
French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 – 1901) vividly depicted the revelry of 19th century Parisian nightlife in paintings and posters. After injuring both legs in his early teens, Toulouse-Lautrec immersed himself in art while he recovered. He later entered the bohemian world of Paris’ Montmartre, painting its colorful cross-section of inhabitants, circuses, dance halls, nightclubs and racetracks. Toulouse-Lautrec began to exhibit widely, and Vincent Van Gogh’s brother Theo was one of his biggest supporters. While institutionalized for alcoholism, he created an extraordinary group of circus drawings which he created solely from memory.Noahs Ark
“Noah’s Ark, 1846” by Edward Hicks is a religious piece emphasizing harmonious
living and tolerance among all creatures. This Na´ve artwork illustrates the
Biblical story in which God commands Noah to build an ark to save himself and
all animals from a devastating flood. A Quaker preacher, Hicks (1780 – 1849)
painted to express his faith and to inspire others. The lion in this work is a
self-portrait. Hicks depicted predators and prey side-by-side to illustrate the
peaceful world envisioned by Quakers. One of Hicks' best-known works, this piece
is displayed in Philadelphia’s Museum of Art.
The brilliant artwork of
post-Impressionist Dutch Master Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) powerfully
impacted countless artistic movements. Producing all of his works within a
decade, Van Gogh’s output in just one year totaled 150 paintings and drawings.
