Expressions of Marie Therese Inspired by Picasso Interior Painting by k Madison Moore

Painting with The Masters - Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


I always love painting with Picasso and his many wives and lovers. Marie Theres was only 17 when they met and they were together for 10 years. I thought this composition would be fun to have a couple of portraits of Marie on the wall as well as her seated on the sofa. Picasso had such an imagination especially when portraying his women. Funny how he saw them!

Enjoy
Expressions of Marie Therese


Picasso’s Greatest Muse

The love affair of Pablo Picasso and Marie-Thérèse Walter forms a captivating new exhibit at Gagosian Gallery, curated in part by the couple’s granddaughter.


Picasso and Marie-Thérèse met by chance on the street while she was shopping at Galeries Lafayette in Paris in 1927. As the story goes, Picasso said, “You have an interesting face. I would like to do a portrait of you. I am Picasso.” Supposedly, the young girl knew nothing of the artist, who was married to the Russian dancer Olga Khokhlova at the time; but she agreed to see him again and a romance, which inspired countless works of experimental art, was born. Marie-Thérèse later gave birth to Picasso’s first daughter, and while the couple remained together for more than 10 years, they never married. ~ Paul Laster

Art Museum Interior Painting - Picasso in Red by k Madison Moore


Picasso in Red - Twisted Secrets
©kMadisonMoore 2014

Art Museum Collections Series

14 x 18 Oil Painting on Canvas


In this painting I wanted to portray not only the beautiful work of Picasso but a bit of his state of mind. You will notice that the walls are a bit twisted as well as the frames, just slightly, but twisted. These are also a few of my very favorite of his paintings.

I have worked with Picasso so much being one of my favorite artists, that I always notice how he twists his figures and other elements in his paintings. It seems he needs to show more than one angle with one single figure.
 You have had to notice the misplacement of eyes, noses, breasts projecting more than one angle. etc. in many and most of his works. Seeing the same face in many angles at one time and executing that idea, wow!

Although we all know how wonderfully talented he was and the incredible amount of work he produced in his lifetime, do we ever think of how he accomplished all of that and why? To me it is a sate of mind. The mind of a genus that is twisted in many ways. Did he have many twisted secrets that he had to portray in paint? What was his inner most secret, one that he could not verbalize so had to be projected otherwise, in paint, for his own sanity? Only he really knew the true meaning to all of those twisted figures. 

If you look at the works of van Gogh they will have and entirely different affect on you than Picasso's works. You do not really see the insanity that was present but the mellow, softness, serenity and beauty of where he was within, yet was said to be mentally off. Most look at Picasso in an entirely different manner and as totally sane but was he? 

I find it interesting that so many artists are tortured in some way and yet paint such beautiful works. Many that portray who they really are deep down inside and not so much what you see on the cover. You can tell  lot by studying the works of the masters, any artists really!  I look at the work and wonder what they were thinking and feeling at the first stroke of that painting. I can look at it again and again and see something different each time. That is the wonder of art!

I guess what  it comes down to is, that God may take something away from us but certainly something else wonderful will replace it.

I posted these close up's so you could see that this painting is a painting
within a painting, within a painting, within a painting and again! Yes, four times!!
all the way into the smallest painting of a painting on the wall where you 
 can see a white pitcher. This was so much fun that if I had the space I would
 have done a painting within one more time! lol!

Every time I paint with Roy I wonder how he ever continued to paint
will all those dots and stripes! Then I saw a demo of him painting recently
and realized that he painted huge paintings, some the size of walls. So,
you can just image how big one dot was! 

I had a so much fun painting this so the title fits well!

Enjoy

American Artist Roy Lichtenstein was born in New York City on October 27, 1923, and grew up on Manhattan's Upper West Side. In the 1960s, Lichtenstein became a leading figure of the new Pop Art movement. Inspired by advertisements and comic strips, Lichtenstein's bright, graphic works parodied American popular culture and the art world itself. He died in New York City on September 29, 1997.

Thanks again MD
Your collection is really growing!


I had this idea in my head of my Big Hat Ladies
having an afternoon conversation over drinks, when
I thought about Matisse's painting,  La Conversation
that he painted in 1938. 
I thought it would be great with this composition
because the ladies look like they are eavesdropping
on the party. Notice I even included them by giving
them their own drinks, lol!
Matisse is known for mixing many patterns in one 
composition. I love doing this also because it's a challenge.
He not only mixed patterns but many colors together
that you would probably never think of using or would
not want to use together!
It's hard to do but I think I accomplished it here in giving
each lady their own color combinations. Somehow it
always seems to work out. Love the faces I gave them this
time too! So smirky!

Alphonse Mucha Master Studio Interior Oil Painting by k Madison Moore




Alphonse Mucha  Studio - Prague 1890

Masters Studio Series
14 x 18 Mucha Oil Painting on Canvas

Alphonse Maria Mucha 24 July 1860 – 14 July 1939), often known in English and French as A Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs.

I love Much and his beautiful style. However, these models are quite different than his. I only used similar poses as his. I wanted to create my own beautiful faces with a touch of Mucha since the scene I created for them is Mucha’s studio in Prague. Who know what it really looked like but this is what was in my mind. This is how I would want it, looking out to the water over the rooftops from my studio window. Art Nouveau and Art Deco are two of the greatest design periods of all time.

Mucha produced a flurry of paintings, posters, advertisements, and book illustrations, as well as designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets in what was termed initially The Mucha Style but became known as Art Nouveau (French for "new art"). Mucha's works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely Neoclassical looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads. In contrast with contemporary poster makers he used pale pastel colors.

6 x 8 Miniature Chair Oil Painting on Canvas


Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962)[3] was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major  sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s.

Soon after her tragic death in 1962, Warhol made a series of paintings paying tribute to Marilyn Monroe, the film star and sex  symbol who had captured America’s imagination. Warhol based this Portrait on a publicity still from the 1953 film Niagara. Warhol took Marilyn Monroe as his subject in different mediums, silkscreening the actresses’ image multiple times on a grid in bright colors and black and white.

Frida Kahlo Series

14 x 18 Oil Painting on Canvas



Another addition to my Frida Series.   I was inspired by a scene in the movie “Frida” similar to this one where they were lying in bed talking about Frida’s paintings. She told Diego that he could probably paint like that when he was 12. Diego replied that, “He could never paint like that.” A  touching scene with Frida and Diego


This one was tough doing them  from the back to facing reflections in the mirror but I like the way it came out.  I had a blast getting lost in designing the very complicated pleated throw. It almost looks like a skirt but it is my design of an elaborate pleated, fringed Mexican throw. I was looking all over for reference for Mexican Blankets and there were really none that were unusual so I really got into all of the colors and pleats. Fun! Might have to make one for my bed!

6 x 8 Monet Chair Oil Painting on Canvas

From 1860 on, Monet abandonned dark colors and worked from a palette limited to pure light colors. In 1905, answering a question about his colors, he wrote :
"As for the colors I use, what's so interesting about that ? I don't think one could paint better or more brightly with another palette. The most important thing is to know how to use the colors. Their choice is a matter of habit. In short, I use white lead, cadmium yellow, vermilion, madder, cobalt blue, chrome green. That's all."

I must have been on a Monet mood lately. This is my second Monet
in two weeks. Just loving painting these little chair paintings.
Love Monet, love his palette and love painting with him.

6 x 8 Chair Oil Painting on Canvas

Romain de Tirtoff (23 November 1892 – 21 April 1990) was a Russian- born artist  and designer known by the pseudonym Erté, from the French pronunciation of his initials. He was a diversely talented 20th-century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including  fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design and set design for film, theatre, and opera, and interior decor. 
Erté continued working throughout his life, designing revues, ballets, and operas. He had a major rejuvenation and much lauded interest in his career during the 1960s with the Art Deco revival. He branched out into the realm of limited edition prints, bronzes, and wearable art.
Two years before his passing, Erté created seven limited edition bottle designs for Courvoisier to show the different stages of the cognac-making process, from distillation to maturation.
Just an amazing talent in so many way. I fell in love with him the first time I laid eyes on his work.
I love animal prints and always admired a similar painting of Erte', of course because I adore cats
of all breeds.

I have painted Monet's Giverny and Bridge many 
times but different each time as well as this floral piano.
I hope to some day visit Giverny and paint, paint,
paint. Many artists have visited The Gardens of Giverny
to paint. Many never returned  and made the town of
Giverny their home. I can only imagine how incredibly 
gorgeous it is there and to be able to pant so many 
beautiful scenes.

Meanwhile I could relax in this big beautiful room
looking out at the willow trees and the turquoise
Japanese Bridge that Monet loved so much.
Maybe listening to a quiet Melody from the piano
with a slight fragrant breeze coming from the
lily pond through the windows.
Can you imagine?

I found this very rare video of Monet
painting in his garden.
It very short but how wonderful to see him live and painting.

14 x 18  Modigliani Oil Painting on Canvas



I never get tired of this love affair. So sad but beautiful at the same time. I
 am happy to add Modigliani to my Masters Studio’s Series. He painted over
200 works of Jeanne in the few short years they were together. I often wonder
where they would have gone and what they would have done had Modi and Jeanne
not died so young. What a wonderful artist he was and Jeanne was up and coming.
Do you think she would have painted so many pieces of him?

Enjoy
Painting Jeanne


Modigliani depicted his mistress, Jeanne Hébuterne (1898-1920), in more than twenty works but never in the nude.

In the history of art she is accorded the honorable role of the last but not the least influential muse of Modigliani. Popular literature and cinema repeatedly used her image to give their own view of the life story of the great artist, picturing her as a young girl devoted to her husband. 

The name of Jeanne Hebuteme  is inseparable from that of Amedeo Modigliani, and the surprising and sad truth is that it was her death rather than life that tied them together forever. It is common knowledge that she committed suicide the day after Modigliani’s death and was buried in the same grave. She didn’t live to see her 22nd birthday.

I love Cherry Blossoms and Peter Max so just had to do a little chair painting for my loves. Peter paints the best cherry blossoms so I used his style for this painting. So fun to do these little chair paintings. They make nice collectables for those who are running out of hanging space and still need to collect.
In 1912, Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo bestowed an incredible gift of 3,000 cherry trees on the city of Washington, DC. Every year since, for one hundred years, the  National Cherry Blossoms Festival has continued to draw crowds to our nation’s capital.


World-renowned artist  Peter Max has been named the Official Artist of the Centennial Celebration, creating the dynamic 2012 commemorative poster in his iconic style.
