Thomas Benton

The updates to Artinthepicture are flying in lately. Today I have added two things: the painter Thomas Hart Benton and the artistic movement American Regionalism of which he is one of the biggest representatives.

Kasimir Malevich – Summer Landscape

Kasimir Malevich

With the new addition of Russian artist Kasimir Malevich the best art history website in the world finally exceeded 3 000 paintings. Although not quite near the 300 000 works of art displayed in The Louvre, it is still a pretty impressive number. Although the above painting is not typical of his style, it pretty much was the only one I liked. But don’t tell that to the art snobs or I’ll be banned forever from their Martini-parties.

Pierre Puvis de Chavannes - The Poor Fishermen

Slowly but surely the updates to the main site Artinthepicture.com are rolling in again. This week I’ve added the Symbolist artist Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. If I’ve counted correctly, that should be the 211th artist on Artinthepicture.com.

Giacomo Balla - Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash

With all the other work I had, I haven’t been able to add a new artist to Artinthepicture.com lately. But today I’ve found inspiration in the work above as it was the first artwork in Futurism that I immediately loved. So today I’ve added the Italian 20th century-artist Giacomo Balla.

First post ever

Hi, and welcome to the official blog of www.artinthepicture.com.

This blog will be about… erm yes, what will it be about ? Nevermind, I’ll just post whatever I notice in the art world and whatever our visitor is interested in. Although we are not an advertising board, suggestions are always welcome.

And oh yes, this horribly boring layout will be dealt with, when I feel like it.
