Pamela Pindell was born in 1950 in Elkhart, Indiana.  Her initial education was at Syracuse University and the Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy. The latter gave her work a Classical Renaissance background, which she fused with subsequent Boston School training with Sydney Willis (a student of Robert Douglas Hunter), and with Robert Cormier. 

A Massachusetts artist, she has been exhibited widely in open juried shows, including annuals of the Salmagundi Club, the Catherine Lorrillard Wolfe Art Club, and the Audubon Society. 


Her commercial exhibitions include eight previous solo and dual shows at Tree's Place. Among many prizes, Pindell has won four major awards within the last five years from the Guild of Boston Artists, including the prestigious Edmund Tarbell award.  



She resides and maintains her studio in Massachusetts. More on Pamela Pindell

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

01 Painting, Streets of Paris, by the artists of the time, Part 39 - With Footnotes

Eugene Segal (born 1967) Russian School, 21st century
Large Café Scene, c. 2010
Oil on canvas
79cm x 109cm
Private collection

Eugene Segal was influenced by the works of artists such as Rembrandt, Velasces, Van Deik, France Hals and fellow countrymen Vrubel and Serov. Segal paints with a pallet knife, directly on canvas. Born in 1967 Russia, Segal made the decision to become an artist at the early age of five, and never wavered from his dream. 

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
