The Style of Joseph Blackburn, English Portrait Painter of Early Americans

Thanks to Joseph Blackburn, we are blessed with a peek inside early American life. It’s amazing to think that without his work, many faces would have never been captured in time.

Blackburn didn’t just do a service to his patrons, but also to their descendants as well as thousands of art lovers, including those yet to be born. Truly, artists are servants to humanity. www.segmation.com

The 5 Periods of Berthe Morisot’s Artwork

“Whereas artists such as Manet and Renoir’s works sexualized females, Morisot perfectly captured the self consciousness of women as they are preparing for an evening out. Morisot’s pictures are modest and reveal women who are not acting a part for men, but are instead focused only on themselves. Through her art she challenged accepted ideas of femininity and revealed the life of 19th-century women the way she experienced it.” — Berthe Morisot Style and Technique (6) www.segmation.com
