Pablo Picasso was still living in Barcelona when the 1900 World’s Fair drew him to Paris for the first time. During the course of his two-month stay he immersed himself in art galleries as well as the bohemian cafés, night-clubs, and dance halls of Montmartre. 
Le Moulin de la Galette, his first Parisian painting, reflects his fascination with the lusty decadence and gaudy glamour of the famous dance hall, where bourgeois patrons and prostitutes rubbed shoulders. Picasso had yet to develop a unique style, but Le Moulin de la Galette is nonetheless a startling production for an artist who had just turned 19.
Parisian night life, teeming with uninhibited hedonism and vulgarity, was a popular theme in late-19th- and early 20th-century painting; artists such as Edgar Degas and Edouard Manet documented this enticing, ribald nocturnal realm. None was a more skilled chronicler or sympathetic observer of the demimonde than Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, whose numerous paintings and graphics from the late 1880s and early 1890s of pleasure palaces and their roguish patrons were an early and important influence on Picasso. Reproductions of his expressive paintings appeared in French newspapers that circulated in Barcelona and were well known to Picasso before he came to Paris, but the firsthand experience of these canvases and the decadent culture they portrayed increased his admiration for Toulouse-Lautrec and the tradition in which they were painted. 
In Le Moulin de la Galette, Picasso adopted the position of a sympathetic and intrigued observer of the spectacle of entertainment, suggesting its provocative appeal and artificiality. In richly vibrant colors, much brighter than any he had previously used, he captured the intoxicating scene as a dizzying blur of fashionable figures with expressionless faces.

For the last 15 years, there's been a man up in Canada painting under the nonsensical name "Labrona." He is a skateboarder, a record collector, sometimes a house builder and, most importantly, an artist in the purest sense. When you look at the projects that Labrona gets himself involved with, it quickly becomes evident that he is a man who wants to capture life in his art and share his creations with the world in any way possible. Whether he's painting on skate decks, canvases, freight trains or the sides of buildings, Labrona's work has energy and a beauty that comes from a rare combination of drive and talent. Only the best street artists can successfully draw inspiration from themes as seemingly divergent as skateboard culture and the old masters, and that's exactly what Labrona does. 
Labrona inserts beauty into everyday life with his artwork, but without ignoring the grittiness of the places where he finds himself painting, resulting in a synergy between traditional beauty and worn-down everyday realities that brings new life to wherever he paints.

L’art est à la rue. Publié par le 23 août 2013. Par Alisson Lévesque
Dans les rues de Montréal, de Paris, de Mexico ou de Beijing, le passant tombe sur des dessins peints sur les murs, communément appelés graffitis. Mais au-delà de ces créations illégales et faites à la va-vite sous une capuche, d’autres initiatives naissent, elles, tout à fait légalement. Incursion dans l’univers de l’art de la rue.
Il s’appelle Félix Bérubé. Dans le milieu de l’art canadien, où il roule sa bosse depuis plus de 15 ans, on l’appelle Labrona. L’artiste a investi depuis quelques années le milieu des galeries, mais il n’a pas renié son premier médium : la rue.
«La bonne chose avec les rues est que tout le monde peut faire n’importe quoi, n’importe quand», explique Labrona. Pour lui, la rue n’impose ni frontières ni limites et aucune restriction. Tout est donc possible, toutes les plus belles œuvres sont imaginables… tant que l’on ne se fait pas prendre.
Illégal : Le street art est en effet illégal. Un artiste, souvent jeune, se donne le droit d’apposer sa signature sur une propriété d’autrui. Le street art est alors considéré comme du vandalisme, et donc passible d’amende.
Pour Labrona, le côté illégal et stressant est la clé du street art: «C’est excitant de faire une création dans une place effrayante : c’est dur de peindre quelque chose de beau rapidement, mais le défi de faire une belle œuvre dans un temps limité est en bonne partie ce qui rend le street art amusant», continue l’artiste habitué de devoir travailler rapidement.
Alors que devient l’art de rue lorsqu’on lui confère un rôle social et légal? Pour Labrona, c’est le principe même du street art qui change : «Un graffiti peint légalement devient une murale. Ce n’est pas la même chose qu’enfreindre la loi. Il n’y a pas de risque», croit l’artiste. Pour lui, l’aspect esthétique prime alors sur l’intention d’exprimer un message.
Labrona a choisi de peindre surtout des visages dans ses œuvres. Pour lui, l’expression faciale permet d’infinies nuances, c’est un bon moyen de passer messages et émotions : «Je veux que mes créations soient intéressantes à regarder, et que le message touche les gens. Mais la beauté peut être triste ou violente. Je ne cherche pas à faire de belles images», précise-t-il.

Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky, August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976) was an American visual artist who spent most of his career in France. He was a significant contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. He produced major works in a variety of media but considered himself a painter above all. He was best known for his photography, and he was a renowned fashion and portrait photographer. Ray is also noted for his work with photograms, which he called "rayographs" in reference to himself.

Artist : Giovanni Antonio Canal (Italian , 1697 - 1768)
Title : The Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge, Venice
Date : 1728 - 1732
Medium : oil on canvas
Dimensions : 73 x 49.7 cm
Current location : Museum of Fine Arts, Houston , Texas , USA.

Giovanni Antonio Canal (17 or 18 October 1697 - 19 April 1768), better known as Canaletto (Italian: [kanaˈletto]), was an Italian painter of landscapes, or vedute, of Venice. He was also an important printmaker in etching.
Canaletto, together with Giambattista Pittoni, Giovan Battista Tiepolo, Giovan Battista Piazzetta, Giuseppe Maria Crespi and Francesco Guardi forms the ultimate group of Venetian old master painters.

He was born in Venice as the son of the painter Bernardo Canal, hence his mononym Canaletto ("little Canal"), and Artemisia Barbieri. Bernardo Bellotto was his nephew and pupil. Canaletto served his apprenticeship with his father and his brother. He began in his father's occupation, that of a theatrical scene painter. Canaletto was inspired by the Roman vedutista Giovanni Paolo Pannini, and started painting the daily life of the city and its people.

Return of the Bucintoro to the Molo on Ascension Day, painted 1729 - 32.
After returning from Rome in 1719, he began painting in his topographical style. His first known signed and dated work is Architectural Capriccio (1723, Milan, in a private collection). Studying with the older Luca Carlevarijs, a moderately-talented painter of urban cityscapes, he rapidly became his master's equal.
In 1725, the painter Alessandro Marchesini, who was also the buyer for the Lucchese art collector Stefano Conti, had inquired about buying two more 'views of Venice', when the agent urged him to consider instead the work of "Antonio Canale... it is like Carlevaris, but you can see the sun shining in it."

Much of Canaletto's early artwork was painted "from nature", differing from the then customary practice of completing paintings in the studio. Some of his later works do revert to this custom, as suggested by the tendency for distant figures to be painted as blobs of colour - an effect produced by using a camera obscura, which blurs farther-away objects.
However, his paintings are always notable for their accuracy: he recorded the seasonal submerging of Venice in water and ice.
In this painting, the high viewpoint gives the illusion of looking out of a window, but there is no building in the position where the artist would have had to stand to use the "camera".

Canaletto's early works remain his most coveted and, according to many authorities, his best. One of his early pieces is The Stonemason's Yard (1729, London, the National Gallery) which depicts a humble working area of the city.
Later Canaletto painted grand scenes of the canals of Venice and the Doge's Palace. His large-scale landscapes portrayed the city's pageantry and waning traditions, making innovative use of atmospheric effects and strong local colors. For these qualities, his works may be said to have anticipated Impressionism.
His graphic print S.A Giustina in Prà della Vale was found in the 2012 Nazi loot discovery.

This 1752 painting of Northumberland House in London is an example of Canaletto's work during his residence in England.
Many of his pictures were sold to Englishmen on their Grand Tour, often through the agency of the merchant Joseph Smith (who was later appointed British Consul in Venice in 1744).
It was Smith who acted as an agent for Canaletto, first in requesting paintings of Venice from the painter in the early 1720s and helping him to sell his paintings to other Englishmen.
In the 1740s Canaletto's market was disrupted when the War of the Austrian Succession led to a reduction in the number of British visitors to Venice. Smith also arranged for the publication of a series of etchings of "capricci" (or architectural phantasies) (capriccio Italian for fancy) in his vedute ideale, but the returns were not high enough, and in 1746 Canaletto moved to London, to be closer to his market.

He remained in England until 1755, producing views of London (including several of the new Westminster Bridge, which was completed during his stay) and of his patrons' castles and houses. His 1754 painting of Old Walton Bridge includes an image of Canaletto himself.

He was often expected to paint England in the fashion with which he had painted his native city. Canaletto's painting began to suffer from repetitiveness, losing its fluidity, and becoming mechanical to the point that the English art critic George Vertue suggested that the man painting under the name 'Canaletto' was an impostor.
The artist was compelled to give public painting demonstrations in order to refute this claim; however, his reputation never fully recovered in his lifetime.
After his return to Venice, Canaletto was elected to the Venetian Academy in 1763 and appointed prior of the Collegio dei Pittori. He continued to paint until his death in 1768. In his later years he often worked from old sketches, but he sometimes produced surprising new compositions. He was willing to make subtle alternations to topography for artistic effect.

!!! Great article by Irena Kossowska says it all.

Polish painter of Jewish origin, born in 1885, lived and worked in Paris from 1922, perished in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942; a representative of the New Classicist movement of the 1920s and 30s.
Kramsztyk began his education in Warsaw, studying painting with Zofia Stankiewicz, Adolf Edward Herstein i Miłosz Kotarbiński. He continued his studies at Krakow's Academy of Fine Arts under Józef Mehoffer (1903/1904) and at Munich's Academy of Fine Arts. While in Paris between 1910 and 1914, he became a member of the Society of Polish Artists and the Polish Artistic and Literary Society, reactivated in 1915. Kramsztyk spent the duration of World War I in Warsaw and Krakow. In 1917 he joined in the first exhibition of the Polish Expressionists, organized at the Friends of the Fine Arts Society in Krakow. The exhibit was a manifestation of the first wave of the Polish avant-garde. In 1918 he became a member of the New Group, created by Kramsztyk and other artists, including Tadeusz Pruszkowski and Eugeniusz Żak. After 1918 he perfected his skills at the Herstein Studio in Berlin. He showed his work many times, among the venues the Society for the Encouragement of the Fine Arts in Warsaw (1909, 1910, 1912, 1915-1917, 1919, 1921, 1922, 1924), and the Friends of the Fine Arts Societies in Lviv (1913, 1930, 1931), Krakow (1922), and Poznań (1913). His work was exhibited at a series of Parisian Salons, including the Autumn Salon (from 1908), the Salon of Independents (1911, 1912, 1913, 1925, 1926), and the Tuileries Salon (1928-30, 1939), and shown at the Galerie Druet (1925, 1928), the Galerie Żak (1930, 1937), the Galerie Des Beaux-Arts (1935), and at the Salon de l'Art Francais Indépendant (1929).
In 1922 he settled in Paris, vacationing each year in Poland. In the same year he co-founded the Rhythm (RYTM) Association of Polish Artists, the members of which propagated the Classicist style in Polish art of the 1920s. In Warsaw Kramsztyk presented his work at the Polish Arts Club (1917, 1919, 1921), the Institute of Art Propaganda (1930, 1931, 1932, 1937) and at the exhibition of Independents in 1913. The artist had solo exhibitions at the Friends of the Fine Arts Societies in Krakow (1913), Lviv and Poznań (both 1914), the Society for the Encouragement of the Fine Arts in Warsaw (1920), and branches of the Institute of Art Propaganda in Łódź (1934) and Warsaw (1937). Kramsztyk's work was included in a series of exhibitions of Polish art abroad, including those in Barcelona (1912), Paris (1914, 1915, 1921, 1929, 1935), Stockholm (1929), Brussels (1929), Pittsburgh (1931), and Moscow (1933). Other exhibits of his work were organized in Berlin (1912, 1914), Venice (1914), Vienna (1915, 1928), Rome (1925), Prague (1927), St. Louis (1932), Edinburgh (1933), and New York (1933). His paintings were shown at the Art and Technology International Exhibition in Paris (1937) and the World Expo in New York in 1939. 
He perished in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II.
Kramsztyk was heavily influenced by the art of Cézanne. In his landscapes and still life’s, the artist emphasized structure built of geometric forms. He used light, short brushstrokes to shape vegetation, objects, and architectural forms, surrounding them with soft contour lines. He limited his range of colors to muted blues, greens, and reds, made livelier by white highlights. His use of light and shadow in his portraits is highly distinctive. Early in his career, he chose old women, Chinese and African characters as his subjects, accenting the singularity of their facial features. His landscapes of southern France and Spain date from the same period. In 1918 he began painting figural scenes, nudes, and portraits in which he drew on early artistic traditions, applying stylistic conventions characteristic of mature works of the Renaissance, Mannerism, and the Baroque. Musicians of seemingly 16th century provenance became a frequently recurring motif (Koncert / Concert). Kramsztyk's nudes, their flesh rendered through subtle, tonal variation, struck poses reminiscent of the models of Titian or Rubens.
In the late 1920s Kramsztyk shifted to a warmer, more harmonized color palette and replaced rough textures with smooth layers of paint; his tonally varied colors acquired an inner glow and his landscape motifs gained in vibrancy through the addition of shimmering light reflections. He also created a vast array of images of the Polish artistic and intellectual elite, portraying such individuals as Wacław Borowski, Eugeniusz Żak, and Henryk Kuna. Some portraits have an allegorical and metaphorical dimension, achieved through the addition of appropriate props and attributes and reinforced with universal titles - Poeta (Portret Jana Lechonia) / The Poet (Portrait of Jan Lechon), Smakosz / The Gourmet, Szachista / The Chess Player, or Vanitas Vanitatum. He also created pastel and sanguine drawings inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical sketches. During the Nazi occupation of Poland, he filled his sketchpads with tragic scenes of the annihilation of the Jewish nation.

Depuis 1922, il a vécu à nouveau à Paris, mais a visité chaque année la Pologne. Lors de sa visite en 1939, il a été surpris par le déclenchement de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et l'occupation allemande de la Pologne. Il a été forcé d'aller s’installer dans Ghetto de Varsovie. Il a été abattu en 1942 dans une rue du ghetto par un soldat de la soi-disant Armée de libération russe subordonné par le  haut commandement allemand nazi.
La peinture de Roman Kramsztyk a été influencé par l'art de Paul Cézanne. Il a créé des portraits, des nus, des natures mortes et des peintures de genre. Pendant son séjour dans le ghetto, il a créé des dessins illustrant la vie des Juifs emprisonnés. Certains de ces dessins ont survécu à la guerre en tant que documents de l'horreur de l'Holocauste.

Artist : Giovanni Antonio Canal (Italian , 1697 - 1768)
Title : View of the Arch of Constantine with the Colosseum
Date : 1742 - 1745
Medium : oil on canvas
Dimensions : Height: 832 mm (32.76 in). Width: 1,229 mm (48.39 in).
Current location : The J. Paul Getty Museum , Los Angeles , USA.

Artist : Giovanni Antonio Canal (Italian , 1697 - 1768)
Title : Return of 'Il Bucintoro' on Ascension Day
Date : from 1745 until 1750
Medium : oil on canvas
Dimensions : Height: 595 mm (23.43 in). Width: 938 mm (36.93 in).
Current location : Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya , Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain).

Giovanni Antonio Canal (17 or 18 October 1697 - 19 April 1768), better known as Canaletto (Italian: [kanaˈletto]), was an Italian painter of landscapes, or vedute, of Venice. He was also an important printmaker in etching.
Canaletto, together with Giambattista Pittoni, Giovan Battista Tiepolo, Giovan Battista Piazzetta, Giuseppe Maria Crespi and Francesco Guardi forms the ultimate group of Venetian old master painters.

He was born in Venice as the son of the painter Bernardo Canal, hence his mononym Canaletto ("little Canal"), and Artemisia Barbieri. Bernardo Bellotto was his nephew and pupil. Canaletto served his apprenticeship with his father and his brother. He began in his father's occupation, that of a theatrical scene painter. Canaletto was inspired by the Roman vedutista Giovanni Paolo Pannini, and started painting the daily life of the city and its people.

Return of the Bucintoro to the Molo on Ascension Day, painted 1729 - 32.
After returning from Rome in 1719, he began painting in his topographical style. His first known signed and dated work is Architectural Capriccio (1723, Milan, in a private collection). Studying with the older Luca Carlevarijs, a moderately-talented painter of urban cityscapes, he rapidly became his master's equal.
In 1725, the painter Alessandro Marchesini, who was also the buyer for the Lucchese art collector Stefano Conti, had inquired about buying two more 'views of Venice', when the agent urged him to consider instead the work of "Antonio Canale... it is like Carlevaris, but you can see the sun shining in it."

Much of Canaletto's early artwork was painted "from nature", differing from the then customary practice of completing paintings in the studio. Some of his later works do revert to this custom, as suggested by the tendency for distant figures to be painted as blobs of colour - an effect produced by using a camera obscura, which blurs farther-away objects.
However, his paintings are always notable for their accuracy: he recorded the seasonal submerging of Venice in water and ice.
In this painting, the high viewpoint gives the illusion of looking out of a window, but there is no building in the position where the artist would have had to stand to use the "camera".

Canaletto's early works remain his most coveted and, according to many authorities, his best. One of his early pieces is The Stonemason's Yard (1729, London, the National Gallery) which depicts a humble working area of the city.
Later Canaletto painted grand scenes of the canals of Venice and the Doge's Palace. His large-scale landscapes portrayed the city's pageantry and waning traditions, making innovative use of atmospheric effects and strong local colors. For these qualities, his works may be said to have anticipated Impressionism.
His graphic print S.A Giustina in Prà della Vale was found in the 2012 Nazi loot discovery.

This 1752 painting of Northumberland House in London is an example of Canaletto's work during his residence in England.
Many of his pictures were sold to Englishmen on their Grand Tour, often through the agency of the merchant Joseph Smith (who was later appointed British Consul in Venice in 1744).
It was Smith who acted as an agent for Canaletto, first in requesting paintings of Venice from the painter in the early 1720s and helping him to sell his paintings to other Englishmen.
In the 1740s Canaletto's market was disrupted when the War of the Austrian Succession led to a reduction in the number of British visitors to Venice. Smith also arranged for the publication of a series of etchings of "capricci" (or architectural phantasies) (capriccio Italian for fancy) in his vedute ideale, but the returns were not high enough, and in 1746 Canaletto moved to London, to be closer to his market.

He remained in England until 1755, producing views of London (including several of the new Westminster Bridge, which was completed during his stay) and of his patrons' castles and houses. His 1754 painting of Old Walton Bridge includes an image of Canaletto himself.

He was often expected to paint England in the fashion with which he had painted his native city. Canaletto's painting began to suffer from repetitiveness, losing its fluidity, and becoming mechanical to the point that the English art critic George Vertue suggested that the man painting under the name 'Canaletto' was an impostor.

Eurasian stone-curlew
India,Rajkot,29-06-2015.

The stone curlew, Eurasian thick-knee, or Eurasian stone-curlew (Burhinus oedicnemus) is a northern species of the Burhinidae (stone-curlew) bird family.
It is a fairly large wader though is mid-sized by the standards of its family. Length ranges from 38 to 46 cm (15 to 18 in), wingspan from 76 to 88 cm (30 to 35 in) and weight from 290 to 535 g (10.2 to 18.9 oz). with a strong yellow and black beak, large yellow eyes (which give it a "reptilian", or "goggle-eyed" appearance), and cryptic plumage. The bird is striking in flight, with black and white wing markings.
Despite being classed as a wader, this species prefers dry open habitats with some bare ground. It is largely nocturnal, particularly when singing its loud wailing songs, which are reminiscent of that of curlews. Food consists of insects and other small invertebrates, and occasionally small reptiles, frogs and rodents. It lays 2-3 eggs in a narrow scrape in the ground.
The stone curlew occurs throughout Europe, north Africa and southwestern Asia. It is a summer migrant in the more temperate European and Asian parts of its range, wintering in Africa.[Wikipedia].
