He started his work as a color separator and plate maker for Western Lithograph, then as an illustrator for Boeing Aircraft. Although "Keeper of the Plains" is certainly his most well-known work, Bosin largely expressed himself via his paintings. He was one of the first artists to use Indian themes in his work.
Besides being an artist, Bosin was also a poet and a songwriter. One of his poems was used as the lyrics for Bob Dylan's song "Mr. Tambourine Man".
In 1978, Bosin was appointed as the director of the Rocky Mountain Museum of Art in Denver, Colorado. He held this position until his death in 1998 at the age of eighty-one.
Of particular note is that during his lifetime, Bosin painted more than fifty portraits of American Indians which are now housed in various museums across the United States.
Bosin was a member of the Ute tribe. His artwork has been cited as a major influence on many contemporary Native Americans artists such as Faith Spotted Eagle and Bill Reid.
There is a museum in Boulder, Colorado named after him called the Blackbear Bosin Memorial Museum.
Bearden's collage and photomontage compositions, which he began making in the mid-1960s, are among his most well-known works. During this period, he believed he was wrestling in his art between expressing himself as a black man and the obscurity of abstract painting. He used bits from newspapers, magazines, and other sources to create his images, which often included references to African-American history and culture.
Born on March 10th, 1918, in rural Georgia, Bearden received his early education at home by his parents, who were artists themselves. When he was 11 years old, the family moved to New York City, where his father found work as an artist for the Harlem Renaissance theater company known as The Cotton Club. It was here that Bearden first became exposed to jazz and African-American history through his father's friends.
He attended Columbia University, where he met several other young artists who would go on to become prominent names in their own right, including John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It was also while attending Columbia that he began experimenting with collage and photomontage, ideas which had previously been done only abstractly.
After graduating in 1941, Bearden served in the Army during World War II. Upon his return to New York City, he began teaching art classes in military schools while continuing to make art on the side.
Friedensreich Hundertwasser (Austrian, 1928–2000) was a painter, printmaker, and architect most known for his bright, decorative, and biomorphic forms in his works. He was born in Vienna and attended the Viennese Art Academy for a few months before embarking on a journey through Italy, Morocco, Tunisia, and Nepal. Upon his return to Austria, he became involved with the Austrian New Wave movement that rebelled against traditional art practices during this time.
Hundertwasser is regarded as one of the key figures in 20th-century art due to his unique vision and influence on modern architecture and painting. His work has been described as "a visual celebration of life's joys and pleasures" that often included his own face in his paintings.
He died at age 58 in Echterdingen, Germany after suffering from cancer.
People around the world know him for his beautiful paintings but few know that he was also a great poet, writer, photographer, and musician. Hundertwasser published three books of poems and eight albums of music over the course of his career.
He left his estate to an orphanage he had founded years earlier and since then his artwork has been sold to support the children of the institution.
Jean-Paul Riopelle was a Canadian Abstract Expressionist who was best known for his non-representational landscape paintings. Riopelle created his mosaic-like pieces by squeezing paint directly from the tube and lavishly applying it using a palette knife. He often included found objects such as toys, motors, and pieces of wood in his works.
Riopelle was born on January 4, 1924 in Montreal, Quebec. His father was a doctor who worked at the Hôtel-Dieu hospital. When he was nine years old, his family moved to Chelsea, Massachusetts, where his father took a job at Harvard University. He attended Harvard for only one year before dropping out to travel in Europe. While in Europe, Riopelle learned about modern art from visiting artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
Upon returning home, Riopelle began making his own drawings and paintings. In 1946, he married Joan Wypall, a fellow artist. The couple had three children together: daughter Fiona and sons Adam and Daniel.
In 1952, Riopelle moved to New York City, where he became a member of the faculty at New York University's Art School. He also held several jobs including illustrator and painter for magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and House & Garden. In addition, he worked as a set designer and costume designer for various theater companies.
Painting pictures of rich people's houses. The Thiebaut family business was founded in 1555 by Jean-François Thiebaud. They made their money selling oil paints to painters who painted portraits and other images for churches, museums, and private collectors.
Thiebaud has been referred to as the "Picasso of his Time" because he brought a new level of skill and sophistication to European painting. He also influenced many later artists, including Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Edgar Degas.
Thiebaud died in 1680, but the company continued to sell paintings through 1873. Today, it is known for its still life and landscape paintings that feature fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
Some famous artists who have worked with Thiebaud paint materials include Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, and Mary Cassat.
In addition to being a painter, Thiebaud was also involved in politics. In 1720, he became mayor of Brussels and held this position until his death.
