A Touch of Red - Matisse Interior Painting by k Madison Moore



Matisse - A Touch of Red
©kMadisonMooreFine Art Inc. 2013

Interior oil painting on canvas inspired by Henri Matisse

Sold Commission



Many times a collector will fall in love with a painting
that I have already sold so they will request that I repaint it
for them. However, I do like to make each one an original
for every collector so I make subtle and many time major
changes but staying within the same theme. This painting is
a good example of this.

Below is the first original and is 11 x 14. The painting
above is 30 x 60. I changed the face on our lady, made the chair
wider and the flowers larger and more of them. The stripes are
wider on the ottoman and of course I added the book case and all
of the elements on it. The books have their first names on them
as titles for that personal touch.

The collectors were thrilled and sent me photos (below)
after they hung it. I am so happy that they are happy!
Thanks so much again Brandon and Wendy.

If you see one of my paintings with a theme that strikes you
but is sold, contact me with the title and your ideas or I can design
one just for you.

Essence - Monochromatic Nude Oil Painting by k Madison Moore


Essence
©kMadisonMoorePortfolio.com

11 x 14  Black and White Nude Oil Painting

Monochromatic Series


 
Black-and-white as a description may be considered a misnomer in that the images are not ordinarily starkly contrasted black and white but combine black and white in a continuum producing a range of shades of gray . Further, many prints, especially those produced earlier in the development of photography, were in sepia (mainly for archival stability), which yielded richer, more subtle shading  than reproductions in plain black-and-white. Color photography provides a much greater range of shade, but part of the appeal of black and white photography is its more subdued monochromatic character.

I have been thinking about doing a Monochromatic Series for awhile so this will be the first
painting for this series. Many years ago all I did was black and white but used charcoal and inks.
Really is a lot more fun in oils. There is just something  about the extreme dark and light with all the shades of gray in between that is striking.

Enjoy!

 Farewell My Love




Farewell at Night by George Barbier
Design for and Evening Dress for Paquin


George Barbier (1882 - 1932) was one of the great French illustrators of the early 20th century. Born in Nantes, France on October 10, 1882, Barbier was 29 years old when he mounted his first exhibition
in 1911 and was subsequently swept to the forefront of his profession with commissions to design theatre and ballet costumes, to illustrate books, and to produce Haute couture fashion illustrations. For the next 20 years Barbier led a group from the  Ecole des Beaux Arts who were nicknamed by  Vogue "The Knights of the Bracelet"—a tribute to their fashionable and flamboyant mannerisms and style of dress.

In the France that emerged from World War I, George Barbier, then in his 30s, was one of the best-known artist-designers, especially famous as a creator of the brilliantly colored fashion plates that had been launched by the couturier Paul Poiret a decade earlier, and of jewelry for Cartier.

Cobalt in The Room

Inspired by Japanese Porcelain 
and an Artistically Upholstered Chair
by Name Design Studio


14 x 18 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

SOLD

For larger view


This was a real challenge. I am not used to only using
one or two colors. This took real discipline! I kept wanting
to add more colors but had to stop myself.

I was inspired by a beautiful Japanese tile that was given
to me years ago. It displays in the painting on this wall.
I was reminded of it when I saw a beautifully upholstered
chair using fabrics of similar designs of Japanese Porcelain.
They do beautiful work. Check them out Here

Thanks again for allowing me to use
your photos.

Enjoy!



Japanese Porcelain

Cobalt blue in impure forms had long been used in Chinese porcelain, but it was independently discovered as a pure alumina-based pigment by Louis Jacques Thenard in 1802. Commercial production began in France in 1807. The first recorded use of cobalt blue as a color name in English was in 1777. The leading world manufacturer of cobalt blue in the 19th century was Benjamin Wegner's  Norwegian company Blaafarveverlet,(" blue color works, in Dano-Norwegian). Germany was also famous for production, especially the blue colour works (Blaufarbenwerke) in the Ore Mountain of Saxony. 


14th century

The true development of blue and white ware in China started with the first half of the 14th century, when it progressively replaced the century-long tradition of bluish-white ware, or Qingbai. The main production center was in Jingdeahen.
15th century
With the advent of the Ming Dynastyin 1368, blue and white ware was shunned for a time by the Court, especially under the Hongwu and Yongle Emperors, as being too foreign in inspiration.[Blue and white porcelain however came back to prominence with the Xuande Emperor, and again developed from that time on.[7]
16th century
Some blue and white wares of the 16th century were characterized by Islamic influences, such as the ware under the Zhengde Emperor (1506–1521), which sometimes bore Persian and Arabic script.

17th century
During the 17th century, numerous blue and white pieces were made as export porcelain for the European markets. European symbols and scenes coexisted with Chinese scenes for these objects

18th century
In the 18th century export porcelain  continued to be produced for the European markets. As a result of the work of Francois Xavier d'Entrecolleshow ever, an early example of industrial spying  in which the details of Chinese porcelain manufacture were transmitted to Europe, Chines exports of porcelain soon shrank considerably, especially by the end of the reign of the Quinlong.

Jacqueline's Boudoir Interior Painting Inspired by Picasso by k Madison Moore

Painting with The Masters - Art within Art Series 

Interior Painting Inspired by Picasso
Sold - Commission
If you may be interested in a painting that is
already sold, I can repaint a similar for you.

Jacqueline Roque (February 24, 1927 – October 15, 1986) was born in Paris on February
24, 1927. She is best known as the muse and second wife of Pablo Picasso. Their marriage
lasted 20 years until his death, during which time he created more than 400 portraits of her
Born  in Paris, she was only two when her father abandoned her mother and her four-year-old
Picasso met Jacqueline in 1953 at the pottery when she was 27 years old. He romanced her by
drawing a dove on her house in chalk and bringing her one rose a day until she agreed to date
in six months later. In 1955, when Picasso's first wife Olga Koklova died, he was free to marry.
They married in Vallauris on 2 March 1961.

Roque's image began to appear in Picasso's paintings in May 1954. These portraits are
characterized by an exaggerated neck and feline face, distortions of Roque's features. Eventually
her dark eyes and eyebrows, high cheekbones, and classical profile would become familiar
symbols in his late paintings.It is likely that Picasso's series of paintings derived from
Eugène Delacroix's The Women of Algiers was inspired by Roque's beauty; the artist c
commented that "Delacroix had already met Jacqueline." In 1955 he drew Jacqueline as
Lola de Valence", a reference to Edouard Manet's painting of the Spanish dancer. In 1963
he painted her portrait 160 times, and continued to paint her, in increasingly abstracted forms, until 1972.





My painting, "Jacqueline's Boudoir" is based on my impression
of Jacqueline with Folded Arms by Pablo Picasso

Self Portrait Magritte Interior Oil Painting by k Madison Moore



Self Portrait- Magritte
©kMadisonMooreFineArtInc.2013

Inspired by Rene Magritte

11 x 14 Interior Still Life Oil Painting on Canvas

Painting with The Masters - Art within Art Series


Visit My Portfolio Here for More in this Series

René Magritte described his paintings as "visible images which
 conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one
 of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, 
'What does that mean?'. It does not mean anything, because mystery 
means nothing either, it is unknowable."

 MyPainting, "Self Portrait - Magritte" is a play on his work
Man in The Mirror but facing the opposite direction
and the room reflecting in the mirror. 
This is my impression of his painting
Self Portrait Magician with Four Arms.
Enjoy!




Magritte's work frequently displays a collection of ordinary objects in an 
unusual context, giving new meanings to familiar things. The use of 
objects as other than what they seem

Magritte's use of ordinary objects in unfamiliar spaces is joined to his 
desire to create poetic imagery



Man in The Mirror by Rene Magritte


The work depicts a man standing in front of a mirror, but whereas the book on
 the mantelpiece is reflected correctly, the man can see only the back of his head.

Every once in awhile I get in a pastel mood and who better'
to paint with than Monet.  This was fun decorating the room
 with tiny floral accessories. It's a shame that the very small details
are so hard to see on a screen like the pearl necklace on the pillow
and the Tiffany lamp and vase. The painting on he wall is

"The Stroll by Claude Monet"
Enjoy, A Stroll with Monet and Tiffany



Claude Monet (1840-1926), was a French painter, recognized, together with Pissaro, as being one of the creators of Impressionism, and was probably the artist most dedicated to observing the Impressionist principles. His works epitomize the genre and are considered some of the Impressionists' finest.

Lichtenstein Inspired Interior Painting Still Life by kMadison Moore


Roy's Place
Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting
Painting with The Masters - Art within Art Series

SOLD

For larger details view:


I love being inspired by Roy Lichtenstein. I don't know if I could 
do all the dots and lines he did in most of his paintings all the time
though. It would drive me mad. I do like that he always used
  primary and brilliant colors.

The wall paintings are my impression of two of his most famous
Cartoons. The statue of the woman was in one of his paintings. I thought
it would be great to display it as a sculpture piece in the composition.
I must say that the most fun I had with this was doing a clip from 5
of his paintings for the sofa pillows. I could see me in this room,
but more so Roy himself. This "is" Roy's Place!
Enjoy!


"Art doesn't transform. It just plain forms."
– Roy Lichtenstein

A groundbreaking American pop artist, Roy Fox Lichtenstein was born October 27, 1923, in Manhattan.

His best-known image from this period is Whaam!, which Lichtenstein produced in 1963, using a comic book panel from a 1962 issue of DC Comics' All-American Men of War, as his inspiration. Later works included Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

"When I have used cartoon images, I've used them ironically," he once explained. "To raise the question: Why would anyone want to do this with modern painting?"

Interior Painting Still Life Inspired by Modigliani by k Madison Moore



Expressions of Jeanne
Inspired by Amedeo Modigliani
©kMadisonMooreMkM2012

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

14 x 18 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas



If you haven't seen the movie, "Modi", the life story of
Amedeo Modigliani, then see it. You won't regret it.
It was a wonderful movie about his life and the lives of 
Picasso and several other artists during that time and the 
way they competed in the salons with their art. It is a love
story about Modi and his love Jeanne Hebuterne.

Jeanne was born in Paris to a Roman Catholic family. Her father,
 Achille Casimir Hébuterne, worked at Le Bon Marché department store.
 A beautiful girl, she was introduced to the artistic community in
 Montparnasse by her brother André Hébuterne who wanted to become a
painter  She met several of the then-starving artists and modeled for 
Tsuguharu Foujita. However, wanting to pursue a career in the arts, 
and with a talent for drawing, she chose to study at the
 Académie Colarossi. It was there in the spring of 1917
 that Jeanne Hébuterne was introduced to Amedeo Modigliani her love. 

The end will surprise you!


I have done several paintings of Jeanne inspired by Modi
and I love every one of them.  Jeanne has so many expressions
in the paintings he did of her. The one over the fireplace was painted
before he started painting her eyes. He used to leave the centers blank.
He told Jeanne that the day he painted her eyes is the day he will be
able to see her soul. I decided to paint them in for this composition.
I keep finding more and more paintings of Jeanne that Modi painted.
This one of her on the sofa was a new one that I recently found
and made me realize how different she looked in several of'
his paintings, hence the title, "Expressions of Jeanne."
Enjoy!
