Sitting with Picasso Again

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Still Life Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


It has been so long since I added to my Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series. Always so much fun and still one of my
favorite series.

I love Picasso!!  I love to paint with him and see what I can come
up with in a similar style to his. This was a fun painting working
with my impressions of some of his sitting paintings. Did you
ever notice how many paintings he has of people sitting for him?

The Hand Sculpture and the Vase are also similar to some of
his works. The wine is his brand too, let's join him!  lol!

Enjoy Sitting with Picasso Again

Expressions of Roy by k Madison Moore - Masters Studio Series

Expressions of Roy

Painting with The Masters
Masters Studio Series 
Roy Lichtenstein Studio

14 x 18 Roy Lichtenstein Inspired oil painting on canvas


Roy must have been a fun guy. He loved comics and did many paintings
after them. Many and most of them were designed with tiny dots and bright colors.
No way was I doing that!

  He painted so many different expressions so I thought
it would be fun to  do my impression of some of them and have them
hanging in his studio with his favorite leather sofa.

He designed some furniture as well. I just loved this crazy curvy chair
and stool so had to include it in this composition. Looks like he was having
tea and someone forgot their sneakers!

Here's a photo of Roy lounging on his leather sofa in his studio

Roy Fox Lichtenstein was born on October 27, 1923, in New York City, the first of two children born to Milton and Beatrice Werner Lichtenstein. Milton Lichtenstein (1893–1946) was a successful real estate broker, and Beatrice Lichtenstein (1896–1991

Roy Lichtenstein was one of the most influential and innovative artists of the second half of the twentieth century. He is preeminently identified with Pop Art, a movement he helped originate, and his first fully achieved paintings were based on imagery lifted from comic strips and advertisements and rendered in a style mimicking the crude printing processes of newspaper reproduction. 

In August 1997, Lichtenstein fell ill with pneumonia. He died unexpectedly of complications from the disease on September 29, 1997, at the age of 73, in New York City.

“Love and fantasy go hand in hand “- Marc Chagall

This is perfect quote for this composition! I love to do work like his.
The room is Chagall's "Interior with Flowers", of course altered for this
piece. I added Chagall's Self Portrait and have him painting his work titled:

"The Birthday".

It’s her birthday and in a moment of emotion and passion, her husband decides that the flowers he got for her are not enough. And so, he literally ‘leaps’ to kiss her, catching her by a wonderful surprise and carrying her away.

I thought it would be fun to also have Bella and Chagall floating from his imagination above 
the flowers towards the window as he has them in the Birthday painting. 

This is my first time painting with Chagall but will not be my last.
This was a really fun painting with a lot of thought and my imagination.
A Great painting for Chagall lovers.

The Birthday by Marc Chagall

“The Birthday” or “Anniversary” as it’s also known, is a 1915 Marc Chagall composition featuring a simple interior  typical of Russian provincial tastes of the turn of the 20th century. The two figures, a man and a woman appear to be free of having to conform to the common laws of physics. They simply float, unburdened by gravity. The woman in the painting is none other than Chagalls’ beloved first wife Bella Rosenfeld whom the artist met in St. Petersburg in 1908. Bella, in a simple black dress is shown tilted forward towards the window as if running, holding a festive bouquet of flowers. Chagall – floating lovingly above her, kissing her with his head bent and twisted, his torso turned away from her. This is an intimate setting, meant for the loved one, and that’s how the viewer gets a feeling of being in the same room as the couple and almost intruding upon an intimate moment. Like so many of Marc Chagall’s other loving tributes to his wife, this painting is filled with intimacy, caring affection, love and warmth.

Self Portrait by Marc Chagall

Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers was Marc Chagall’s first self-portrait, painted in 1912-13. He was about 25 years old at the time. It was painted in his first Paris studio in Paris, where he and 200 fellow artists lived in very poor conditions. It’s an example of how artists can include personal meaning and history in their self-portraits.

Chagall (born 1887- died 1985) grew up in Belarus, now an independent country, but then part of the Russian empire. His father was a laborer (unskilled construction worker) who struggled to make enough money to support the family. While Chagall spent most of his life in France, he never stopped returning to Belarus in his mind and in his art. In Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers, two landscapes hover above the painter:  his new home of Paris and the memories of his childhood village in Belarus.
Chagall’s Jewish heritage shows strongly in much of his work, with references to traditional folktales, fables, and beliefs. In Study for Self Portrait with Seven Fingers, Chagall refers to the colorful Yiddish folk expression Mit alle zibn finger, (with all seven fingers,) meaning “working as fast and as hard as possible”.  That explains the extra fingers!
The broken, puzzle-like appearance of the objects in the painting is an influence from Cubism, a popular style of painting at the time. Chagall was experimenting with Cubist methods of breaking up reality and reassembling it in new ways.
