Maks Gierymski fought in the 1860 January Uprising against the Russians, most of his paintings show his personal memories from that guerilla war.

As you can see, in Poland even pines have overtones.;)

Yes, that's a fine sky.

This is becoming a good thread!

A lot of good things to see. His work is very wide ranging and varied, I like the quick colour sketches more than the highly polished work. These WW1 Orkney sketches fascinate me, it must be an amazingly beautiful place and he seems to capture the austere landscape splendidly.

Well, I'm enjoying it at any rate. :) I always love discovering unknown artists in museums in all kinds of places (not that I travel that much...) I'm learning a lot here - don't want to sound smug, but frankly I didn't expect there were so many good and even first rate painters I never even heard of!:cry:

The 'old Jewish woman with oranges' looks very like the woman in the painting below? I wonder did he know her personally? The detail in both are superb.

For something contemporary: Stasys Eidrigevicius b.1949

This is a Lithuanian artist living in Poland, his paintings and posters have a distinct style.

The woman with oranges was a Jewish street vendor he happened to pass and take down in his sketchbook. Gierymski later worked on the painting in his studio (this was before the impressionists and plein-air days). Did he ask her to sit for him? I hope so, she looks like she badly needed a hot drink.:)

The broad sweep, the vastness and bold colours of some pictures makes me think of Canada (never seen it but that's how I imagine it). It's awfully hard to make a good painting out of breathtaking landscapes. He did it here I think.

Great example of Art Nouveaux, didn't know anyone from across the Atlantic who painted in that style (except Whistler)

I like his more abstract work best. Especially this:

I see he's often after the blueness and crunching crispness of snow. We used to have such dazzling winters when I was a kid.

Alexander Rodchenko, a cult figure in Soviet avant garde of 1920s, one of the founder of constuctivism . Was married to Varvara Stepanova, the artist, painter and fashion designer.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._Stepanova.jpg

Rodchenko was heavily influenced by cubism and futurism and Malevich's suprematism.
While having excellent pictures and photographs performed with outstanding artistry, mostly Rodchenko became famous for his posters made in a unique design that was an absolute novelty in art conception of that time. Here are some of most famous Rodchenko’s posters

Even the small size online samples of his work simply pops out of the screen.
