Study Of Lucian Freud
painting of man enjoying painting by Francis Bacon

Gerard Boersma
acrylic on panel (masonite)
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm
2018

On my painting you see a man enjoying a portrait of artist Lucian Freud by Francis Bacon. It's the left panel of a triptych.

For a quarter of a century, Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon were the closest of friends. Their lives were characterized by an intense mutual scrutiny of each other and each other’s work, resulting in some extraordinary paintings and a deep but volatile relationship.

As Bacon later put it, “Who can I tear to pieces, if not my friends? If they were not my friends, I could not do such violence to them.” As two figurative artists working at a time when abstraction was the pervading fashion, their practices drew on these mutual processes of looking and criticizing to inform their painting. My figure is taking it all in.


Influenced by the chaos of urban spaces and his interest in brilliant, primary color, Léger sought to express the noise, dynamism, and speed of new technology and machinery that captured the optimism of the pre-World War I period.

All the best, Gerard

Fernand Léger embraced the Cubist notion of fracturing objects into geometric shapes, but retained an interest in depicting the illusion of three-dimensionality.

Léger's unique brand of Cubism was also distinguished by his focus on cylindrical form and his use of robot-like human figures that expressed harmony between humans and machines.

Influenced by the chaos of urban spaces and his interest in brilliant, primary color, Léger sought to express the noise, dynamism, and speed of new technology and machinery that captured the optimism of the pre-World War I period.

Mont Sainte Victoire Seen From Bellevue
painting of woman enjoying painting by Paul Cezanne

Mont Sainte-Victoire Seen From Bellevue is a landscape painting by French artist Paul Cézanne. The subject of the painting is the Montagne Sainte-Victoire in Provence in southern France.

Cézanne spent a lot of time in Aix-en-Provence at the time, and developed a special relationship with the landscape. This particular mountain, that stood out in the surrounding landscape, he could see from his house, and he painted it in on numerous occasions.

The painting shows clearly Cézanne's project of rendering order and clarity to natural scenes, without giving up the optical realism of Impressionism. Both the light and the colours of the painting give the impression of a pattern that is not imposed on nature, but is there naturally.

All the best, Gerard

Gambling Ladies
(painting of two elderly women gambling in Las Vegas)
G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
19 x 16" or 50 x 40 cm
2017

https://www.ebay.com/itm/263289541526

The women on my painting are enjoying themselves in a hotel lobby in Las Vegas. As a painter I'm interested in small moments like this. To me it says a lot about todays society, about the way we see ourselves, the way we interact and also how we are influenced by all sorts of technologies, in this case the slot machines with its bright neon lights.

Croix Noire (Black Cross)
painting of woman enjoying painting by Kazimir Malevich

Kazimir Malevich was the founder of the artistic and philosophical school of Suprematism. He invented this term because he believed that art should transcend subject matter. The truth of shape and color should reign 'supreme' over the image or narrative.

His ideas about forms and meaning in art would eventually constitute the theoretical underpinnings of abstract art. Malevich worked in a variety of styles, but his most important and famous works concentrated on the exploration of pure geometric forms.
