One of the leading sculptors in Britain after World War II, Lynn Chadwick (born 1914) is well known for both abstract and figurative works that embodied the tensions of the post-war era. His precariously balanced, spiky, insect-like figures and more monumental geometric works have brought him international renown as a successor to Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.

"Now there are no priests or philosophers left, artists are the most important people in the world." Gerhard Richter, 86 years old today.
.
Pic: Self-portrait, 1996, Oil on canvas.
.
Gerhard Richter is a German painter who originally trained in a realist style and later developed an appreciation for the more progressive work of his American and European contemporaries.
.
Richter increasingly employed his own painting as a means for exploring how images that appear to capture "truth" often prove, on extended viewing, far less objective, or unsure in meaning, than originally assumed. The other common themes in his work are the elements of chance, and the play between realism and abstraction.
.
Working alongside but never fully embracing a quick succession of late twentieth century art movements, such as Abstract Expressionism, American/British Pop art, Minimalism, and Conceptualism, Richter has absorbed many of their ideas while remaining skeptical of all grand artistic and philosophical credos.

.
Bram Bogart was born in Delft, the son of a blacksmith. His parents did not welcome their son’s desire to become a painter and sent him to a technical school to become a decorator. During evenings Bogart was allowed to follow a correspondence course in drawing.
.
Bogart was not interested in gestural painting, brushed or poured from cans, and pursued the desire to build up his paintings in layers of pigment and cement mixture.
.
From 1945, Bogart started to develop his first rough-textured, wall-like landscapes, and joined the ranks of artists of the ‘Art Informel’, a term referring to a loosely knit group practicing different forms of Abstraction.

“One must be of one’s time and paint what one sees.” Édouard Manet, born on this day in 1832.
.
Pic: A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, 1882.
.
Édouard Manet was the most important and influential artist to have heeded poet Charles Baudelaire's call to artists to become painters of modern life. Manet had an upper-class upbringing, but also led a bohemian life, and was driven to scandalise the French Salon public with his disregard for academic conventions and his strikingly modern images of urban life.
.
He has long been associated with the Impressionists; he was certainly an important influence on them and he learned much from them himself. However, in recent years critics have acknowledged that he also learned from the Realism and Naturalism of his French contemporaries, and even from seventeenth century Spanish painting. This twin interest in Old Masters and contemporary Realism gave him the crucial foundation for his revolutionary approach.

"Our heads are round so our thoughts can change direction" Francis Picabia, born on this day in 1879.
.
Among the great modern artists of the past century, Francis Picabia also remains one of the most elusive. He vigorously avoided any singular style, and his work encompassed painting, poetry, publishing, performance and film. Though he is best known as one of the leaders of the Dada movement, his career ranged widely—and wildly—from Impressionism to radical abstraction, from Dadaist provocation to pseudo-classicism, and from photo-based realism to art informel. Picabia’s consistent inconsistencies, his appropriative strategies, and his stylistic eclecticism, along with his skeptical attitude, make him especially relevant for contemporary artists, and his career as a whole challenges familiar narratives of the avant-garde.

"We live in a rainbow of chaos." Paul Cézanne, born #otd 1839.
.
This still life of quince, apples & pears was painted around 1885-1887 and is one of eight Cézannes bequeathed to the President of the United States and all his future successors by collector Charles Loeser in 1928.
.
Though prolific during his lifetime, Cézanne's art did not receive much recognition or acclaim until after his death, when his influence was cited by younger artists such as Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, who moved away from the Impressionist style into new and different modes of painting.
.
He is regarded as a key bridge from 19th century Impressionism to the avant-garde styles of the 20th century.

Zachary Eastwood-Bloom graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010, where he studied Ceramics and Glass. His work explores diverse materials including ceramics, glass, bronze, jesmonite, sound and video. His interest lies in the intersection between the physical and the immaterial and the historical and the cutting-edge. He references classical imagery, adopts digital aesthetics and uses leading technologies. For one body of work, Eastwood-Bloom used 3d software to scan busts from the British Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts, which he digitally manipulated before 3d printing and casting into clay: the process transitioned from the physical through the digital resulting in the physical.

@tornabuoniart’s exhibition of works by the great Italian surrealist Giorgio de Chirico has come to and end. Tornabuoni Art will be exhibiting modern Italian masters at this year's Masterpiece London.
...
Pic: Ettore e Andromaca, 1950.
...
Born in Volos, Greece, in 1888 of Italian parents, Giorgio de Chirico was encouraged to pursue drawing and painting from an early age.
.
After studying at the Polytechnic school of Athens, de Chirico attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich from 1906 to 1909. He painted his first metaphysical work The Enigma of an Autumn Afternoon in Florence in 1910. He exhibited for the first time in Paris in 1912 and met poet Guillaume Apollinaire and Paul Guillaume, his first art dealer. In Ferrara, during the First World War, he developed the Metaphysical Interior theme and met artists Carlo Carrà and Filippo de Pisis. His canvases proved popular with many Surrealist artists – their eerie silence and dream-like quality resonating with the artistic ambitions of the Surrealists.

George Fouquet's striking turquoise and diamond brooch perfectly demonstrates his love of stylised geometric forms and lively colour.

“Anything with human form will resemble someone you know.” Yoshitomo Nara, celebrating his 59th birthday today.
.
Yoshitomo Nara is one of the leading artists of Japan's influential Neo Pop movement and is best known for his depictions of simultaneously cute and devilish children and animals.
.
Nara’s upbringing in post-World War II Japan profoundly affected his mindset and, subsequently, his artwork as well. He grew up in a time when Japan was experiencing an inundation of Western pop culture; comic books, Walt Disney animation, and Western rock music are just a few examples.
.
Additionally, Nara was raised in the isolated countryside and was often left alone with little to do but explore his young imagination. The fiercely independent subjects that populate so much of his artwork may be a reaction to Nara's own largely independent childhood.
