Considered as the greatest Venetian painter of the 16th Century, Tintoretto's name derives from the Italian tintore, meaning “dyer”, his father’s occupation. " He was a pupil of Titian—even if not for a long period—whose colourism had a profound influence on his work. His manner did not, however, purely confine itself to Titian's but also drew from Michelangelo "

 Van Gogh Museum originally shared this post.
Van Gogh had little money, so instead of hiring models he bought himself a good mirror and started painting self-portraits. ‘Because if I can manage to paint the coloration of my own head, which is not without presenting some difficulty, I’ll surely be able to paint the heads of the other fellows and women as well.’ He later explained in a letter to his brother Theo.

Happy birthday to Swiss symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin, born #onthisday in 1827.
'The Isle of the Dead' from the Alte Nationalgalerie +Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, which you can enjoy online at http://goo.gl/87159i,  is " one of Böcklin’s most popular pictorial works. He achieved this by combining a limited number of ideas into an impressive atmospheric composition.

" The location is sinister. The viewer’s gaze is led up the steps but can penetrate no further into the darkness. The island’s strict symmetry, the calm horizontals and verticals, the circular island surrounded by high cliff walls, and the magical lighting create an atmosphere that is both solemn and sublime, evoking a sense of stillness and other-worldliness. The ripple-less surface of the water and the boat bearing the coffin with a figure shrouded in white behind it add a melancholy tone to the whole.

' "Why should the work of a potato planter," wrote Millet, "be less interesting or less noble than any other activity?"

'The Crowning with Thorns' by Caravaggio, one of history's most enigmatic and influential artists, born 443 years ago +Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien.
Enjoy this work in high resolution by clicking: http://goo.gl/YfrkYS #art #master #history

" With a complete command of anatomy, Caravaggio characterises the varied physical appearance of the protagonists. Christ’s delicate skin is in obvious contrast to the bronzed appearance of his tormentors. His exposed, outstretched neck, which has been forced into a horizontal position, is a clear indication of the brutality of the action. Caravaggio uses decisive contrasts of light and dark to create a strong physical presence. Remarkable is his use of so-called incision, in which he used a sharp instrument to outline the principal contours of his composition on the surface before he began painting. "
