Winter 1882, Francesc Masriera

Oil on canvas, roughly 31 x 24″ (79 x 62 cm); link is to zoomable version on Google Art Project; downloadable file on Wikimedia Commons; original is in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, which also has a zoomable image.

Catalan painter Francesc Masriera has give us a tour de force study of soft textures — from the variation in the fur of the muff, the tufts on the hat and tassels on the muff, the fabric of the hat and wrap, and the soft curls of the young woman’s hair — contrasted with the smoother textures of her sleeve and glove.

Gediminas Pranckevicius, illustration

Gediminas Pranckevičius is a Lithuanian illustrator who works in the fields of advertising, book and album covers, gaming and children’s books.

He has a jaunty,energetic style rendered with nice touches of lighting and texture.

His website is divided into sections by project type. I particularly enjoy his the imaginary landscapes in his “Secret place” section.

Pranckevičius has videos on YouTube and Vimeo, some of which show his process. He also has prints and other items available through online stores.

Carlos Schwabe, Symbolist painter

Though some of his literary subject matter and style characteristics have much in common with Art Nouveau and Pre-Raphaelite artists, German-Swiss painter and printmaker Carlos Schwabe is considered to be a Symbolist.

Schwabe was active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and his work presented a variety of themes and approaches.

Adoration of the Magi, Peter Paul Rubens

Link is to Wikimedia Commons; original is in the Royal Museum Antwerp.

17th century Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens’ multi-faceted penchant for drama is in evidence here, in the pyramidal arrangement of the figures — topped of by camel riders peering under the rafters — the great assortment of facial expressions, the flowing drapery of robes, and the dynamic poses of even the most static figures.
