    ***

    Roussel was a pioneer in colour printmaking techniques. He was elected president of the newly founded ‘Society of Graver – Printers in Colour’ in 1909. He held the position until his death and exhibited his work with them regularly.

    Roussel’s medium was the last phase of the artist’s printmaking in colour. It was an entirely new process of printing in water - colour, opposed to oils. The water based ink comprised pigment and rice powder. He was searching for ‘a means of printing which would enable him to do away with the crushing affect of the press, and with the yellow quality in printing oil, so as to get the greatest purity in blue tones and a quality of depth combined with a delicacy of tone’. The impressions were printed from textile plates, made from a series of master cuttings in paper, and partially applied through paper stencils. This was all done by hand without the use of a printing press or metal plates. Hausberg records only ten subjects.

    Theodore Roussel has invented an altogether new process for producing colour prints, a process in which no metal plates are used, but their place taken by a series of textile surfaces which receive the colours and transfer them to paper...(подробнее здесь,по линку)© Gerrish Fine Art

    Alson S. Clark: Based on the Biography of Alson Skinner Clark by Medora Clark



    ***


    "Alson Skinner Clark experienced three succinct phases in his career: as a well-known cosmopolitan painter associated with prominent dealers such as William Macbeth in New York and William O’Brien in Chicago, as an artist who witnessed and recorded the building of the Panama Canal in 1915, and as a muralist recovering from World War I in the warm climate of Southern California. “Nevertheless, throughout his prolific and extensive career, Clark always maintained his devotion to Impressionism – to painting en plein air – never abandoning his commitment to his work or his vision” (c)Deborah Epstein Solon, An American Impressionist: The Art and Life of Alson Skinner Clark ( Manchester, VT: Hudson Hills, 2005), 15.

    Spanierman Gallery-Alson Skinner Clark (1876-1949)

    California Impressionist Painter

    Alson Skinner Clark, a noted painter of vivid California landscapes, was born in Chicago. At the exceptionally young age of fourteen, he moved to New York where he enrolled at the Art Students League. Stifled by the highly disciplined course of study, he abandoned the League with a group of fellow students under the leadership of William Merritt Chase, who subsequently founded the Chase School of Art. As a student at the school, Clark was greatly influenced by Chase's masterful sense of composition, brushwork and color, and he incorporated it into his own distinctive style. At Chase's suggestion, Clark traveled to Paris in 1899, where he studied at the Académie Julian, and briefly under James A. McNeill Whistler, the well-known American expatriate painter.

    In the spring of 1901, Clark's conservative, dark picture The Violinist was accepted at the Paris Salon, bringing him his first official commendation.

    ***
    With this recognition in hand, Alson Skinner Clark returned to the United States in 1902, establishing his studio in Watertown, New York. Here he began to paint winter scenes of the surrounding countryside, a theme which he would come back to later in his career. His return to the United States was marked, in 1902, by a highly successful exhibition at the Anderson Gallery in Chicago, where nearly all of his forty-six European works on display were sold within a two-week period.

    Another important Chicago show followed in 1905, this time composed mostly of Chicago cityscapes. Clark's The Coffee House won the Cahn Prize at the Art Institute and entered its permanent collection the same year. Among the many visitors to the show was Chase, who paid his former pupil the ultimate compliment of purchasing The Bridge builders for his own collection.

    Pursuing his interest in winter scenes, Clark traveled to Quebec in the fall of 1906. Equipped with snowshoes and a charcoal burner built into a palette to keep his paintings from freezing, he ventured outdoors to capture the magical effects of northern light.

    (About H.G.Moon)

    Henry George Moon (18 February 1857 Barnet, Hertfordshire - 6 October 1905 St Albans, Hertfordshire), was an English landscape and botanical painter, noted for his orchid paintings illustrating Reichenbachia, a monthly publication named in honour of Heinrich Gustav Reichenbach of Hamburg, the great orchidologist.


    ***
    NB:В 1886 году Генрих Зандер (англ. Henry Frederick Conrad Sander, нем. Heinrich Friedrich Conrad Sander) привлёк художника Генри Муна (англ. Henry Moon) (1857—1905) к работе по созданию ботанических иллюстраций орхидей с описаниями Райхенбаха. В 1888—1894 годах были созданы 192 листа. Мун рисовал орхидеи с натуры, пользуясь коллекцией Зандера, потом переводил рисунок в гравюру, печатал оттиски, затем каждый гравюрный оттиск раскрашивался акварелью от руки. По мере их создания они печатались в течение 6 лет ежемесячно. Это издание сейчас известно как Reichenbachia и является самым богатым когда-либо созданным справочным источником по орхидеям.

    From the -Dictionary Listing of Orchidologists
    Biography

    He was born on 18 February 1857, at Barnet , England.He was the eldest son of Henry Moon, a parliamentay agent of Westminster. Until the death of the father in 1866, the son's school days were spent at Dr. Bell's ,at Barnet . Even as a young lad he revealed a love of art. After his Barnet schooling he was for some years a student at the Birkbeck and St. Martin's Schools of art, where his talent and skill won him numerous prizes.

    In 1878 Moon went to the law offices of Messrs.Cole and Jackson , solicitors of Exeter Street,where he worked as a clerk with a view to the profession of barrister . Law , however , could not hold his interest over art, and in 1880 he jointed the art department of The Garden , a popular horticultural publication. From that time on most of the colored plates illustrated in the magazine, including many orchids, were painted by him, and in later years he performed similar services for The English Flower Garden, Wild Garden , and Flora and Sylva . Through the encouragement of Mr. William Robinson, who had been influential in obtaining for Moon the position on the staff of The Garden, he went to his friend's beautiful gardens and woods at Gravetye Manor where he developed an intense love for the English landscape and conveyed his impressions to canvas .Much of his spare time was spent in the further study of landscape paining, often in the company of Mr. W.E. Norton, an American painter to whom attributed much of his own success in art.
