George's Traditional Art ToolsArt Tools
Hi my name is GeorgeXVII I am a Traditional Artist and, as you may have guessed, I love drawing! I'm here this week to 'help' you with some tips and advice about "how to choose and use tools" if your hobby is DRAWING. 
Bullet; Blue I am often asked about the tools I use to create my drawings. Do I use traditional wood-cased pencils or mechanical ones? What type of eraser do I use? It would appear that many Artists have a fascination (and a vested interest) in the tools and techniques used by other artists... and I'm no different in that respect! So, what tools do I use?

Salvador Dali and historical paintings.Art History
AUTORHi my name is GeorgeXVII and I'm here to present to you some information about this famous Spanish Artist.
Salvador Dalì developed visual surrealism together with Magritte. But being more talented, successful and commercial than the others, Dalì was eventually expelled from the surrealist group.
Salvador Dali
Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech was born on May 11, 1904 in the town of Figueres, in the Empordà region, close to the French border in Catalonia, Spain.

Died: 1989, January 23, Figueres, Catalonia, Spain

Constantin Brancusi, or ''Brâncusi''

(1876 - 1957)

Constantin Brancusi was a Romanian artist, now known across the globe for his modernist sculptures. Considered a pioneer of modernism, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th-century, Brâncuși is called the patriarch of modern sculpture. As a child he displayed an aptitude for carving wooden farm tools. Formal studies took him first to Bucharest, then to Munich, then to the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris from 1905 to 1907. His art emphasizes clean geometrical lines that balance forms inherent in his materials with the symbolic allusions of representational art. Brâncuși sought inspiration in non-European cultures as a source of primitive exoticism, as did Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, André Derain and others. But other influences emerge from Romanian folk art traceable through Byzantine and Dionysian traditions.

Though Brancusi reached a high-level of fame and recognition, he had a humble beginning in the village of Hobita, Romania near the Carpathian Mountains. His parents were both laborers who lived in poverty and sent young Brancusi to work herding their flock of sheep. In the village, Brancusi was exposed to the local tradition of woodworking, and showed great skill and craftsmanship.

By the age of nine Brancusi fled his village to seek work in larger towns, eventually settling in Craiova. After several years of working odd jobs, one of Brancusi's employers noticed his skillful carvings and offered to fund courses at the local art school, Craiova Scoala de Meserii. Brancusi accepted the offer and earned an art degree in 1898.

Brancusi's enthusiasm for the arts led him to continue his studies at the Bucharest School of Fine Arts, where he delved more deeply in sculptural studies. Brancusi's work was well-reviewed by art communities and Europe, and in 1903, Brancusi was invited to work in the workshop of Antonin Mercié and Rodin in Paris.

Symbolizes the concept of Infinity and the infinite sacrifice of the Romanian soldiers. It is considered by Sydnei Geist the top point of the modern art. The Infinity Column stacks 17 rhomboidal modules, with a half-unit at the top. The incomplete top unit is thought to be the element that expresses the concept of the infinite
The ensemble is considered to be one of the great works of 20th-century outdoor sculpture. All 17 rhomboidal modules accumulate a total height of 29.3 m .

After several years of work, study and apprenticeships, Brancusi began to develop his own trademark style. Brancusi worked in a variety of media ranging from wood, marble, clay and metal. Eventually most of Brancusi's work consisted of carvings. By 1913 Brancusi began to enjoy considerable popularity in Romania, France and the United States. Brancusi exhibited in Paris salons as well as in New York modern art shows.

Brancusi created a great deal of controversy in 1920 after exhibiting "Princess X", a bronze phallus, symbolizing Princess Marie Bonaparte's sexual activity and desires. The piece was also a commentary on society's conservatism towards masturbation and sexual freedom. As Brancusi's career progressed he was commissioned to do several public works, including a World War I memorial in Tirgu-Jiu as well as Romanian monuments to honor those lost during the German invasion.

Brancusi is remembered for dressing as a Romanian peasant, and honoring his guests with traditional Romanian meals. Despite his nostalgia for Romanian culture, Brancusi resided in Paris for much of his life and became a French citizen in 1952, towards the end of his life. In France, Brancusi decided to leave his studio to the Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris, contingent upon the agreement that it would be left intact. At the time of Brancusi's death he had a portfolio of over two hundred sculptures and over one thousand photographs. Brancusi's work is now in major art collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the National Museum of Art of Romania in Bucharest. Brancusi's studio is now on display near the Pompidou Centre in Paris.

:bulletred: Interesting fact about one of Brancusi Sclupture :
Donation of 100,000 lei (aprox. 22.196,08 EUR) for ‘Wisdom of the Earth’ from Notaries’ Union.

The Union of Notaries Public of Romania announced on Tuesday its contribution of 100,000 lei to the crowd-funding organized by the Government to purchase Constantin Brancusi’s sculpture – “Wisdom of the Earth.”

According to a press release issued on Tuesday, the notaries public in Romania are joining the Ministry of Culture’s efforts to re-bring Brancusi’s sculpture into the national heritage, one of the most important national projects.

The national crowd-funding campaign “Brancusi is mine” is aimed at raising 6 million euro in public donations until the end of September. Added to this amount there is 5 million euro allocated by the Government for Brancusi’s artwork to enter into state ownership after it is bought from its current owners.
So far, the crowd-funding has amounted to 361,098 euros.

Constantin Brancusi Quotes

-"I ground matter to find the continuous line. And when I realized I could not find it, I stopped, as if an unseen someone had slapped my hands."

-"Work like a slave; command like a king; create like a god."

I hope that you have a better knowledge of who Brancusi is after reading this!

Use the #arthistory tag so I will find it easier.
