01 Painting, The amorous game, Part 41 - With Footnotes

Filippo Indoni, Italian (1800 - 1884)
Two ladies and two gentleman strolling through a classical architectural landscape, Circa 1878

Filippo Indoni, Italian (1800 - 1884). In a reaction against the frivolous and unrealistic images of early 19th century Romanticism, artists turned to less glamorous aspects of life and society in search of a direct experience. By 1850, they had formed a relatively cohesive movement that battled for popularity with Romanticism, a far more widespread style.

This movement, known as Realism, revolutionized art, and artists took a renewed interest in genre scenes - the everyday activities of middle and lower class citizens that previously had been excluded from the fine arts. Roman-born artist Filippo Indoni embraced this artistic movement, presenting jubilant peasants reaping the rewards of their hard work, thus encouraging viewers to seek aesthetic pleasure in the unheralded members of society and moments of daily living. Realists' work such as Indoni's suggests that the everyday movements of life can be as lovely as the life-changing events. More on Filippo Indoni, Italian

01 Painting by the Orientalist Artists of the Nineteenth-Century, with footnotes, 36

Studio of Ferdinand Bol
An Elegant Lady at a Window
Oil on canvas
103.5 x 80 cm
Private collection

Ferdinand Bol (24 June 1616 – 24 August 1680) was a Dutch painter, etcher and draftsman. Although his surviving work is rare, it displays Rembrandt's influence; like his master, Bol favored historical subjects, portraits, numerous self-portraits, and single figures in exotic finery.

Ferdinand Bol was first an apprentice of Jacob Cuyp in his hometown and/or of Abraham Bloemaert in Utrecht. After 1630 he studied with Rembrandt, living in his house in Sint Antoniesbreestraat. In 1641 Bol started his own studio.

In 1652 he became a burgher of Amsterdam, and in 1653 he married Elisabeth Dell, whose father held positions with the Admiralty of Amsterdam and the wine merchants' guild, both institutions that later gave commissions to the artist. Within a few years (1655) he became the head of the guild and received orders to deliver two chimney pieces for rooms in the new town hall designed by Jacob van Campen, and four more for the Admiralty of Amsterdam.

Around this time, Bol was a popular and successful painter. His palette had lightened, his figures possessed greater elegance, and by the middle of the decade he was receiving more official commissions than any other artist in Amsterdam.

Probably his best known painting is a portrait of Elisabeth Bas, the wife of the naval officer Joachim Swartenhondt and an innkeeper near the Dam square. This and many other of his paintings would in the 19th century be falsely attributed to Rembrandt. More on Ferdinand Bol

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
Sensuality
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
