Paintings By A French And A Russian-French

By Darren Hartley

In the traditional Flemish style, Matisse paintings began as still lives and landscapes. They were completed with reasonable proficiency. Primarily known as a painter, Henri-Emile-Benoit Matisse was also a French poet, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor.

Most of the early Matisse paintings employed a dark palette, thus, had the tendency to be gloomy. Henri's first contemporary art experimentations earned a rebellious reputation.

It was between 1897 and 1898 that Matisse paintings took a complete change of style with their introduction to Impressionism. The first masterpiece among the Matisse paintings was The Dinner Table, completed in 1897. It was considered radical with its impressionist aspects at the time.

Without much clear direction, Matisse paintings displayed Henri's rebellious talents by 1899. Whenever he got stuck with his paintings, Henri turned to sculpture for the organization of his thoughts and sensations.

Matisse paintings made color a crucial element, influenced by the works of the post-impressionists and Japanese art. They reconstructed Henri's own philosophy of still life, stretching it to a forced contemplation of the color surfaces, patterned to Paul Cezanne's fragmented planes.

From 1899 to 1905, Matisse paintings made use of the pointillist technique as adopted from Signac. Meanwhile, in 1902-03, they went back to dark palettes, briefly showing a movement back to naturalism.

Exemplified in Birth, The Deal and A Holy Family, the early Marc Chagall paintings featured fabulous and metaphoric images of everyday life. Referred to as the quintessential Jewish artist of the 20th century, Marc Zakharovich Chagall was a Russian-French artist.

Marc Chagall paintings demonstrated a perfect feeling of colors and mastery of the Fauvism methods. They exemplified mastery of new trends and tendencies, including Cubism, Futurism and Orphism, reshaped in the Marc way, as depicted in The Violinist, To My Betrothed, Golgotha and Paris Through the Window.

Marc Chagall paintings that are filled with love and nostalgia included The Pinch of Snuff, The Cattle Dealer and I and the Village. During the First World War, the Marc Chagall paintings became very multifaceted, immersed in nostalgia and represented everyday life.

Among the Marc Chagall paintings completed during this period were Window at the Dacha, War, Red Jew, Feast of the Tabernacles, Birthday, Pink Lovers, The Promenade and Bella with White Collar.

War reflected human grief and hardships of war. Red Jew and Feast of the Tabernacles were strongly religious Marc Chagall paintings resulting from intensification of the Jewish persecution. The last 4 Marc Chagall paintings were lyrical works filled with love towards a woman named Bella.
