Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud

Bacon and Freud were contemporaries, equals and in some ways opposites. Bacon was a relatively rapid painter who often used photographs as a point of reference, Freud in his own words could ‘work only very slowly’ and never used photography as a source. There was half a generation between them — Bacon was born in 1909, Freud in 1922. Yet for a long, long time they were close allies against the world. Lucian’s second wife, Caroline Blackwood, laconically noted that she had had dinner with Bacon, ‘nearly every night for more or less the whole of my marriage to Lucian. We also had lunch.’ Lucian himself recalled seeing Bacon at some point virtually every day for a quarter of century; that is, from the mid-1940s to roughly the time when ‘Three Studies of Lucian Freud’ (shown above) was painted.

Since Bacon was gay, and Freud had remarkable good looks, one might suspect a romantic element in this bond. But Bacon was attracted to older men, a masochist in hopeless pursuit of a suitably dominant partner. According to Lucian, ‘He complained that he spent the whole of his life looking for the roughest, most masculine men that he could find. “And yet I’m always stronger than they are.”’ He meant, Lucian explained, that ‘his will was stronger’. Freud, on the other hand, was a notoriously avid pursuer of girls. He never detected the slightest hint of an advance on the older man’s part. The bond between them was different: artistic and temperamental. When Lucian first encountered him, Bacon must have represented a thrilling example of how to conduct the life of an artist. Though there were other talented painters and sculptors in 1940s Britain, the London art world — in comparison, say, to the Parisian one — was dingy and provincial. Against this background, Bacon was a figure of magnificent flamboyance: painting and living close to the edge, playing for the highest of stakes.
Bacon’s ‘Three Studies of Lucian Freud’ (1969), a three-part portrait of his friend and colleague, went for $142.4 million, in 2013, becoming the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction at that time.

Summer Summer Summer Time!
Summer time c 1907
oil on canvas (above)

Rupert Bunny & friends (below)
Sumer time magnificently demonstrates Rupert Bunny's skills as a draughtsman and masterful handling of large-scale composition. Exhibited at the New Salon in 1907, the painting epitomises the leisured spirit of the Belle Epoque, elegantly capturing seven voluptuous women lounging inside a bathhouse, sipping iced tea and inhaling the intoxicating scent of freshly plucked roses. Bunny modelled each of the figures on his wife Jeanne Morel , who sat for numerous paintings from this period.
Summer time is Bunny’s most ambitious Salon painting and his largest work, bringing to mind the allegorical murals of the day – something he had long wanted to create.

The women are depicted as modern followers of Venus, goddess of love and beauty. The way Bunny depicts them in various stages of undress gives the work a feel of time passing slowly and lazily.
The painting has the ambience of an Old Master and has been compared to the work of Venetian artist Tiepolo, known for his decorative frescoes. However, there is a theatrical bravado to the intricate staging of the composition that relates to the huge interest in theatre and spectacle in early 20th-century Paris.

Une belle saison finale, qui renforce mon attachement à cette série aussi contemporaine que féministe. Exception faite du dernier épisode qui relève carrément de la catégorie "WTF". Un presque sans faute. 😉 👭👭📽 #feedyourbrainwithgoodstuff

Leon Kroll & a model - 1947

Leon Kroll was an American painter and lithographer. Known as a figurative artist, Life Magazine described him as "the dean of U.S. nude painters," yet he was an exceptional landscape painter and also produced an exceptional body of still life compositions. [ excerpt from Wikipedia ]

Greatest Master "Soup/Build A Fort/Set That On Fire.” ~ SAMO

One of Jean-Michel’s first art projects was SAMO, a graffiti collaboration with his friend and past classmate Al Diaz. The two would spray the tag of their character (which stood for “Same Old Shit”) around the streets of Manhattan. [ excerpt from anothermag.com ]

"I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling." ~ Frida Kahlo (2907 - 1954)

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, who mostly painted self-portraits.
Here's a few fun facts you might not have known about Frida.
1. She had Polio as a child.
Kahlo struggled with many types of illnesses throughout her life. When she was six years old, she contracted the virus which consequently left her right leg much thinner than her left. She disguised the bottom half of her body in full long colorful skirts.
2. The artist was not able to bear children. Due to a terrible bus accident when she was 18, Kahlo suffered severe injuries, including a broken spinal column, a broken collarbone, broken ribs, a broken pelvis, 11 fractures to her right leg, and a dislocated shoulder. During the accident, an iron handrail pierced her abdomen and her uterus, causing injury that would make it impossible for her to reproduce.
3. She arrived at her first solo exhibition in an ambulance.
During the early 1950s, Kahlo was in and out of the hospital, having been diagnosed with gangrene in her right foot. In 1953, still bedridden, the artist arrived at her first solo show in Mexico in an ambulance. Her foot later had to be amputated to prevent spread of the gangrene.
4. Her home (Casa Azul) was turned into a museum after her death.
The artist was born in the home in 1907 and it had remained in her family throughout her life. Known as Caza Azul, or the Blue House, it was turned into a museum after she died. It now sees over 25,000 visitors monthly.
5. Kahlo was bisexual.
Although she was married to artist Diego Rivera, their relationship was tumultuous and they both had extramarital affairs. Kahlo had a well-known tryst with female artist Josephine Baker. Diego Rivera supposedly had an affair with Kahlo’s sister, Cristina.
6. The artist has lived in Mexico City, New York, San Francisco, and Paris. She followed Rivera to San Francisco and New York City where he traveled for work. In 1939, Kahlo moved to Paris for some time, where she became friends with Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso.

Confident.
Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Growing up Basquiat was precocious. His accountant father Gerard used to bring home scraps of paper from work for his four-year-old son to draw on. Eleven years later, and two years before he decided to leave school, Basquiat ran away from home. His father recalled that when he found him in a park, his son told him, “Papa, I will be very famous one day.” #arthistory #MMoA #basquiat #sexy #muse #art #museum #artist #masterpeace #hornyforart #contemporaryart #modernart #fineart #LACMA #MoMA #thebroad #hammermuseum #thelouvre #artbasel #artbasel2016 #artbaselhk #artcollector #themodernmuseumofart #themodernmuseum #artgallery #artstudio

Wisdom. “When I was a younger man, art was a lonely thing. No galleries, no collectors, no critics, no money. Yet, it was a golden age, for we all had nothing to lose and a vision to gain. Today it is not quite the same. It is a time of tons of verbiage, activity, consumption. Which condition is better for the world at large I shall not venture to discuss. But I do know, that many of those who are driven to this life are desperately searching for those pockets of silence where we can root and grow. We must all hope we find them.” ~ Mark Rothko

Considered as one of the most renowned figures in the history of Abstract Expressionist movement, Mark Rothko left a significant legacy throughout his life as an artist. Primarily during the 1950s, he gave his contribution to American art with his impressive works that continue to live on even after his death. [ excerpt from mark_-rothko.org ]

Born Markus Yakovlevich Rotkovich, Rothko was an American painter of Russian Jewish descent. Although Rothko himself refused to adhere to any art movement, he is generally identified as an Abstract Expressionist. Died: February 25, 1970, New York City, NY [ excerpt from Wkipedia ]

Mastermind.

The inventors of cubism, good friends Pablo Picasso & Georges Braque

Braque was a major 20th-century French painter, collagist, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor. His most important contributions to the history of art were in his alliance with Fauvism from 1906, and the role he played in the development of Cubism. Braque’s work between 1908 and 1912 is closely associated with that of his colleague Pablo Picasso. Their respective Cubist works were indistinguishable for many years, yet the quiet nature of Braque was partially eclipsed by the fame and notoriety of Picasso.
