Roger Caillois (1913-1978/ France)

Caillois had a stone collection that I found appealing. Each stone had a unique design, with different shapes and colors that he collected from different parts of the world. It is interesting that this science and passion of his partly started with the discovery of the Mexican jumping bean.

Jean-Frederic Schnyder (1945/Switzerland)

The use of bright colors in his paintings seemed to have a lively effect. The use of the colors make his images seem realistic. This also helps him with his religious motifs that he is trying to illustrate.

Picture
Maria Lassnig (1919/Austria)

Her self-portraits or "body awareness paintings" are unique. Many people would not take the extra step and do these type of illustrations. The use of color to help emphasize the lights and darks in each portrait.

Picture
Cathy Wilkes (1966/UK)

The found objects and sculpture used to illustrate different scenes are effective. The cloth is used to dress each sculpture and background to bring life to each of them. emotion is illustrated as well.

Picture
Gilad Ratman (1975/Israel)

This is one of the most unique types of art work I've seen yet. Ratman had different artist to respond to unknown situations by using voice and self narrative. I still don't quite understand it all but I like this idea although it's a bit weird.

Picture
Terike Haapoja (1974/Finland)

The fact that she uses science, technology, and nature to illustrate her work is interesting. In her work she shows veiwers how different parts of nature respond and operate with humans before and after life. This helps us to think outside the box.

Picture
Pietro Longhi (1707-1785/Venice)

His paintings of/from the 18th century seem lively. You can almost tell the time of day with the use of color and light and dark areas within his paintings. You can also see detailed areas.

Picture
Giovanni Bellinie (1430-1516/Venice)

Bellinie had a special technique  of painting and using different material to paint wooden panels. He had his own way of creating paint that made his work unique. The color and material he used is what made his work effective.

Picture
Giorgione (1470-1510/Venice)

This artist did paintings on religious matters. The use of bright colors in his work to help him express the religion is effective. I'm glad that he was able to do the paintings that he did at such a young age.

Picture
Paolo Caliari (1528-1588/Venice)

Caliaris' use of color and line to illustrate details in cloth and garments in his paintings made them effective. He also includes animals and other objects to make each portrait seem lively or realistic. He also illustrates emotion and movement as well.
