01 Paintings, The amorous game, Part 36 - With Footnotes

Jorn Fox
Unknown
Oil on canvas
24x48 inches
Private collection

Jorn Fox was exposed to art at an early age by his father, an art instructor and abstract painter. Even through Jorn had studied in College he believes that his real education came from many hours he spent painting in his studio. There his canvases offered him unlimited opportunities for expression, exploration and discovery.

The varied landscapes are reoccurring theme in Jorn’s works. He is currently working on a Series of impressionist Scene’s “The Road Series” — Figurative, Coastal, Landscapes, Jazz, Captured Moments. Indeed,though he has a signature characteristic elegance of style, each of his paintings are distinct from one another, as are the various locales, people,and moments that inspire them.


Working with palette knife and brush Jorn is able to evoke serenity and stillness in his works, simultaneously creating liveiness and motion. His striking use of color, much of it pure and thickly layered, exalts and even immortalizes what he chooses to depict. Jorn is frequently referred to as a California Impressionist, yet his work possesses a singular style in contrast to his French counterparts, displays an engaging sense of balance.

Pino Dangelico

Oil on Canvas

Private collection


Pino Daeni (November 8, 1939 – May 25, 2010) was an Italian-American book illustrator and artist. He is known for his style of feminine, romantic women and strong men painted with loose but accurate brushwork. Considered one of the highest paid book illustrators of his time, he created over 3,000 book covers, movie posters and magazine illustrations. From 1960 to 1979, his work garnered several prizes and awards. During this period, he was commissioned by two of Italy's largest publishers, Mandadori and Rizzoli, for numerous book illustrations. After a visit to Manhattan in 1971, Pino's experiences of the art scene at that period led him to feel restricted in Milan, and in 1978, he moved to New York, where he believed the artistic freedom would allow him greater opportunities. In 2001, Pino's son, Massimo, began representing his artist-father, despite Pino's initial reluctance. Massimo, more known as Max, successfully grew his efforts into a profitable marketing company, helping his father expand beyond his normal gallery representation to include magazines and books. His work continues to appear in art galleries all over the world, and his Giclee prints sell into the thousands of dollars. On May 25, 2010, Pino died at the age of 70. More on Pino Daeni

01 Painting, Streets of Paris, by the artists of the time, Part 40 - With Footnotes

Pierre Bonnard, (French, 1867–1947) Title:
AU CAFE, c. 1900
Oil on Panel
29.2 x 29.8 cm. (11.5 x 11.7 in.)
Private collection

Pierre Bonnard (3 October 1867 — 23 January 1947) was a French painter and printmaker, as well as a founding member of the Post-Impressionist group of avant-garde painters Les Nabis. Bonnard preferred to work from memory, using drawings as a reference, and his paintings are often characterized by a dreamlike quality. The intimate domestic scenes, for which he is perhaps best known, often include his wife Marthe de Meligny.

Bonnard has been described as "the most thoroughly idiosyncratic of all the great twentieth- century painters", and the unusual vantage points of his compositions rely less on traditional modes of pictorial structure than voluptuous color, poetic allusions and visual wit. Identified as a late practitioner of Impressionism in the early 20th century, Bonnard has since been recognized for his unique use of color and his complex imagery. More on Pierre Bonnard

Segal enrolled in Kharkov Art College, and graduated in 1986. He then served in the army. He painted portraits of generals and large-scale paintings of Soviet tanks. Immediately after being honorably discharged in 1990, Segal began showing at group exhibitions. The artist quickly received invitations from various galleries to do one-man shows. He received critical acclaim for his work, and was honored with one-man exhibitions in Ukraine’s capital Kiev, and in Moscow, Russia.



Segal’s works have become increasingly popular, and he was included in the book “Important Ukrainian Painters of XX-XXI centuries” published in 2004 by the Ukrainian National Academy of Art& Science, curated by Academician B.V. Grinev. Today, Segal resides in his hometown of Kharkov, Ukraine with his wife, Ylia.  More on Eugene Segal
