Презентація по слайдам:
London's National Gallery The National Gallery is the primary British national public art gallery, sited on Trafalgar Square, in central London. It is home to one of the world's greatest collections of Western European paintings. Founded in 1824, from an initial purchase of 36 paintings by the British Government, its collections have since grown to about 2,300 paintings by roughly 750 artists dating from the mid-13th century to 1900, most of which are on display. This page lists some of the highlights of the collection.
De binnenplaats van een huis in Delft De binnenplaats van een huis in Delft is een schilderij van de Nederlandse kunstschilder Pieter de Hooch, geschilderd in 1658, olie op doek, 73,5 x 60 centimeter groot. Het toont een rustig tafereel uit het dagelijks leven in het zeventiende eeuwse Holland. Het werk bevindt zich thans in de collectie van de National Gallery te Londen.
Het laantje van Middelharnis Het laantje van Middelharnis is een schilderij van de Nederlandse landschapsschilder Meindert Hobbema, geschilderd in 1689, olie op doek, 103,5 x 141 centimeter. Het toont een nog altijd herkenbaar landschap nabij de geboorteplaats van Hobbema op Goeree-Overflakkee. Het schilderij bevindt zich thans in de collectie van het National Gallery te Londen.
Mr and Mrs Andrews Mr and Mrs Andrews is an oil on canvas portrait of about 1750 by Thomas Gainsborough, now in the National Gallery, London. Today it is one of his most famous works, but it remained in the family of the sitters until 1960 and was very little known before it appeared in an exhibition in Ipswich in 1927, after which it was regularly requested for other exhibitions in Britain and abroad, and praised by critics for its charm and freshness. By the post-war years its iconic status was established, and it was one of four paintings chosen to represent British art in an exhibition in Paris celebrating the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Soon the painting began to receive hostile scrutiny as a paradigm of the paternalist and capitalist society of 18th-century England, but it remains a firm popular favourite
Madame Moitessier Madame Moitessier is the title of a portrait of Marie-Clotilde-Inès Moitessier (née de Foucauld) begun in 1844 and completed in 1856 by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. The portrait, which depicts Madame Moitessier seated, is now in the National Gallery in London. Madame Moitessier is also the title of a second portrait by Ingres, which depicts her standing; it was painted in 1851 and is now in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
Cup of Water and a Rose on a Silver Plate This painting depicts a fine white ceramic cup filled with water, resting on a silver saucer, adorned with a single rose on a wooden tabletop. The flower here could refer to rose water, a perfumed drink popular in the 17th century, or have a deeper, religious significance. The motif of the cup filled with water is familiar from other works by Zurbaran: it appears in his famous still-life of 1633, Still-Life with Basket of Oranges (Norton Simon Museum of Art, Pasadena) and in at least two of his religious paintings. In the latter paintings the cup of water and rose allude to the Virgins purity and love.
Der Abend Der Abend is a dated on 1821 painting by Caspar David Friedrich. The picture in oil on canvas in the format 22.3 cm x 31 cm located in the Lower Saxony State Museum Hannover. The painting is part of the picture cycle times of the day to continue the Morning, Noon and Afternoon belong.
Isle of the Dead Isle of the Dead (German: Die Toteninsel) is the best-known painting of Swiss Symbolist artist Arnold Böcklin. Prints of the work were very popular in central Europe in the early 20th century—Vladimir Nabokov observed in his novel Despair that they were to be "found in every Berlin home".
