Realistic landscape pioneer - Albert Bierstadt

The existence of "painting" precedes "painting"; that is to say, "painting" is the projection of nature by the kind of observation that is found by painting. It is unreasonable to mention the fragrance of "painting". But if the style of Titian is "the style of painting", then we can understand it. That is to say, in the 16th century American painting appeared in the shape of color plastic. American painters do not like the Albert Bierstadt sketch after the first painting on the color, but immediately with color painting, gradually produced from the color shape. But this is no longer the shape of the painting, but the shape of the performance of the color, the shape of the painting.

The painters further penetrated this aspect. They no longer "painting" point of view of the world, and began to choose those in nature that most in line with the concept of the theme. Salvador Rosa chooses the theme for her own landscape painting. When the eighteenth century Americans knew the way to choose this theme, they liked it; they called it "painting". But the art based on the "painting" principle can not be the perfect art. Americans are only interested in some of the themes of nature, they make the artist's style obey a kind of guest-style elegance, listen to any knowledge to interfere with the independent works of art harmony. In order to obtain full and complete art, the painter should return to the natural theme of nature, in the "painting" outside the scope of seeking painting art.

German artist - Alfred Gockel

Such a German artist, his work strokes vibrant, strong colors, seems to be associated with multiple paintings can be linked, but it is difficult to delineate him to that school, this person is Alfred Gockel.
  Later, in 1894, Angela Camarasa moved to Paris, and was influenced by the impressionist painter Degas and Rottleke depicting the effects of indoor and night scenes and began to explore his own personal style.

As an artist, Alfred Gockel's works are rhythmic, strong, and lead in a variety of styles. Vivid strokes reveal the painter Angela Camarasa's strong interest in oriental and Arab art, strong strong colors, indicating the arrival of the fauvists, while Alfred Gockel's works also with the Vienna separatist painter Kerry Mt is similar to the decorative meaning.

Van Gogh Etten, Drenthe and The Hague

Van Gogh returned to Etten in April 1881 for an extended stay with his parents. He continued to draw, often using his neighbours as subjects. In August 1881, his recently widowed cousin, Cornelia "Kee" Vos-Stricker, daughter of his mother's older sister Willemina and Johannes Stricker, arrived for a visit. He was thrilled and took long walks with her. Kee was seven years older than him, and had an eight-year-old son. Van Gogh surprised everyone by declaring his love to her and proposing marriage. She refused with the words "No, nay, never" ("nooit, neen, nimmer"). After Kee returned to Amsterdam, Van Gogh went to The Hague to try and sell paintings and to meet with his second cousin, Anton Mauve. Mauve was the successful artist Van Gogh the starry night. Mauve invited him to return in a few months, and suggested he spend the intervening time working in charcoal and pastels; Van Gogh went back to Etten and followed this advice.
