  • 12/23/12--03:40: Gari Melchers (7) In Holland
  • "Following his study in Germany, Gari enrolled at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts and the Académie Julian in Paris in 1881, studying under Jules Lefebvre and Gustave Boulanger. In Paris, Gari adopted the style and motifs of the French Naturalist painters, specifically Jules Bastien-Lepage . His focus now was an unromantic view of contemporary peasant life. "(c)"Gari Melchers" by Armand Cabrera

    In Holland



    "In 1884, Gari and American painter George Hitchcock travelled to Holland. The artists founded a studio and an art colony and painted scenes of Dutch peasants. Here Gari painted "The Sermon",1886 .
    It received an honorable mention at the Paris Salon that year and a gold medal in Munich at the International Salon there in 1888.

    Maria Elisabeth Georgina Ansingh (aka Lizzy Ansingh) was a Dutch painter. She belonged to a school of female painters called the Amsterdamse Joffers.



    Lizzy Ansingh was a famous Dutch painter, noted for her doll paintings. What made her paintings so unique was her representation of dolls not as mere objects, but as animate things. In the history of Dutch art, her paintings belonged to a unique genre.

    Still life with doll



    Her early paintings and drawings were heavily influenced from her religious upbringing, which mostly consisted of images of angels and biblical scenes. She learned painting from her aunt, Therese Schwartze, who was a noted painter in her own right and who encouraged Lizzy to take up painting as a career.

    Also, her aunt encouraged Lizzy to carry on working on her doll themes. With this aim in view, she joined the Amsterdam Royal Academy for Visual Arts to hone her craft. At the academy, she joined a group of female painters, who later became famous as the Amsterdamse Joffers.

    Dolls




    Apart from dolls, she was also quite skilled at portrait paintings. The biography given below will tell you more about this painter.

    Lizzy Ansingh, also known as Maria Elisabeth Georgina Ansingh, was born in the Dutch province of Utrecht, in Netherlands, to Edzard Willem Ansingh and Clara Theresia Schwartze. Her father was a pharmacist and her mother was a painter. Clara Theresia was the niece of the famous painter Therese Schwartze, who taught Lizzy drawing, and the granddaughter of the painter, Johann Georg Schwartze.

    The first drawings that Lizzy made were of angels and biblical scenes. Her choice of theological themes was partly inspired by her family’s strong religious values. Her aunt had a major influence on her, with whom she stayed for 16 years, from 1892 to 1908. She encouraged Lizzy to develop her artistic career and introduced her to famous Dutch and French painters when she went with her aunt to visit museums and exhibitions, both at home and abroad. During her youth, she met many famous painters like Piet Mondriaan and George Hendrik Breitner. In 1893, she took painting lessons from the renowned painter GHC Overman and continued until 1897.

    When Lizzy was 19 years old, she enrolled at the Amsterdam Royal Academy for Visual Arts where her professors included Carel Dake, Nicolaas van der Waay and August Allebe among others. There she studied Greek and Roman statues, which helped develop her knowledge of anatomy and helped her grow as a portrait painter. She left the Academy in 1897. At the Academy, she formed a strong bonding with a group of female painters like Marie van Regteren Altena, Coba Ritsema, Ans van den Berg, Jacoba Surie, Nelly Bodenheim, Jo Bauer-Stumpff and Betsy Westendorp-Osieck.

    She and her friends were highly inspired by the art critic Albert Plasschaert. Later, this school of painters came to be known as Amsterdamse Joffers. After the 1970s, the Amsterdamse Joffers became the role models for a younger generation of female painters in Netherlands.


    Lizzy Ansingh:Self-portraits



    Lizzy became very famous for her portraits and doll paintings. Soon after leaving the Academy, she started painting small portraits, still life, tropical birds and dolls. The earliest portrait that she painted was in 1899, which was that of her mother. This portrait received much acclaim when it was exhibited at the Amsterdam Painters Association in St. Luke in 1900. Her foray into doll painting was most inspired from the works of her aunt.

    From the 1900s, her focus became painting dolls. These doll paintings depicted human virtues and vices and bore moral undertones. The most important painting of this era was a painting that depicted the seven deadly sins that she created in 1914.

    Even after Lizzy left her aunt’s place, they stayed in close contact with each other. In 1918, when her aunt passed away, she painted ‘The Funeral’ in her memory. The doll paintings in her later life were characterized by intimacy as well as naïve painting. Her paintings, like ‘Wedding Dolls’, which was created in 1936, show an ‘onacademische’ use of perspective while the characters have a very wooden look.

    Apart from painting, Lizzy also worked as an illustrator but only sporadically. In 1930, she illustrated Marie van Zeggelen’s ‘The Plaetse aan de Veght’ and ‘Twee Amsterdamsche Juffers’.

    She also wrote poetry and short fiction. Some of her poetry was published in the literary magazine ‘Maatstaf’ from 1956 to 1957. In 1927, she published a book for children called ‘A little fruit basket’. She published another book in 1950 called ‘Aunt Tor has her birthday’, which was illustrated by Nelly Bodenheim. She also wrote some travel sketches like ‘Art treasures from the Prado’, published in De Telegraaf, in 1939. Lizzy was a member of two Amsterdam art circles—Arti et Amicitiae and Saint Lucas.


    She died in Amsterdam on 14 December 1959. (c)-The Famous People

    Hand coloured Italian Art Deco Pochoir Postcards by the artist Giovanni Meschini (1888-1977)



    The Pochoir, stencil based, coloring technique dated back many centuries but was revived in early 1900's Paris and became very popular in the post WW1 years. Fashion illustrations, postcards, and limited edition books were published using the technique.

    Giovanni Meschini emerged as the master of the Pochoir postcard. Influenced and encouraged by the work of postcard artist Umberto Brunelleschi he established his Ars Nova studio (in Terni Italy) where pochoir postcards and prints would be produced.

    Umberto Brunelleschi
    La Guirlande, 1919; Concert (Pochoir)



    ***
    The studio output was at times considerable.
    Many of the designs were by Meschini and all of the painstaking production work was overseen by Meschini and often undertaken by him.



    G. Meschini Ars Nova pochoir postcards are immediately recognisable with the tempera pigment slightly rough to the touch and with the studio name and Italian text Dipinta a Mano (meaning hand painted) to the reverse.




    Meschini was born in Rome in 1888, he moved to Terni as a child and made his name there, and he and Ars Nova were to return to Rome in the late 1930's. Giovanni Meschini died in Rome in 1977.

    Lucien Adrion (1889-1953)

    Lucien Adrion was born in Strasbourg, France in 1889 and died in Cologne 1953. Post-Impressionist Lucien Adrion is considered an engraver, watercolorist and painter from the French school. He began his initial studies in Strasbourg as a draftsman. In 1907, at the age of 18, Lucien traveled to Paris to work for a large drafting company but changed his mind upon arrival. Rather than working for a large company, he decided to peruse his dreams of becoming an artist. Traveling like a vagabond, Lucien would leave Paris for London, Munich and to Frankfort, when the war ended to study. After the demobilization of Berlin, Lucien would study engraving under Franz Ritter von Struck (1863-1828), who was Mac Chagall's teacher.

    ***

    He would return to Strasbourg and spend the next thirty years working as a lithographer. In 1921, Lucien Adrion had his first one-man exhibition at Galerie Cheron. Being independent by nature, Adrion would not divert from his decorative paintings of Normandy beaches or scenes of Paris (his favorite subject). He was a regular exhibitor with the Independents. In 1940, Lucien Adrion exhibited Jardines des Tuileries Salon d'Automne in Paris and in 1941; he exhibited several landscapes at the Salon des Tuileries.
