The prime purpose of this book is to present, in small compass, clearly reasoned opinions of men who have treated the philosophy of art not less with simplicity of language than depth of understanding -- novelist and essayist not less than professed critic. A further purpose is to present a brief series of most brilliant descriptions of specific and famous works of art, architecture, sculpture, and painting, by men whose names are synonyms for all that is brilliant. Considered as a whole the collection centres upon a single point, namely, increase of appreciation and love of art behind which, said Rossetti, lies "passionate emotion," and the condition of which is "fundamental brain work." It is a book about men who live, eternal, in their buildings, pictures, sculptures. It is a book by men who have, for the most part, already eternalized themselves in their writings. - Foreword.

Rome, 1598; Rome, 1661; s. Albano; r. History and portraits. The real name of this artist is said to have been Ouche. Although Sacchi studied the works of Raphael and other great masters in Rome, he formed for himself a style which was peculiarly his own. He competed successfully in fresco with Pietro da Cortona. The ideas of Sacchi were always elevated, and he excelled in sim plicity of composition and correctness of drawing. To these characteristics he added a delicacy yet force of colouring which, combined with high finishing, rendered his works very elegant. His most famous picture represents S. Romualdo Recoun ting his Vision to his Brethren. Nicolas Poussin declared it was the fourth great picture in Rome, the others being The Trans figuration, by Raphael; The Descent from the Cross, by Volterra and The Communion of S. Jerome, by Domeni chino and posterity has admitted the soundness of Poussin' s judgment. Carlo Maratti painted a fine portrait of Andrea Sacchi, which was engraved by Vallet in 1662.

Without going back to pre-historic times, if artists were classed with anything like correctness, the Egyptians would be The Old Masters for it would be easy to show that during more than three thousand years there has been a succession of painters, and that The Revival of the Arts and La Renaissance simply indicate a time when certain styles of Art, that had existed long before the fourteenth century, were imitated. The works of the masters who lived in Europe in the Middle Ages have almost disappeared through neglect or ill usage. Yet enough of them still remain to show that, whether they executed their works in tempera, fresco, miniatures, or by some other means, there never was a time, since history began, when there were not any painters of pictures.

This introduction to some of the great artists of the past 150 years looks at their lives and inspirations, and showcases a selection of their most significant paintings. Van Gogh's distinctive style of expressive brushstrokes and bold colours is now famous worldwide, but during his lifetime his work was not appreciated and he was largely unknown. This book explores the fascinating life story of this tortured soul, who came late to art and suffered throughout his life from insecurity and depression. It unravels the influences behind his artworks, from the luminous landscapes of the south of France to the Japanese woodblock prints he so admired, and explores how he developed his own unique style.

Master Minds: Creativity in Picasso’s & Husain’s Paintings The book, “Master Minds: Creativity in Picasso’s and Husain’s Paintings”, is a projection of master minds in the field of art. It reveals about the creative works of art that are not just show pieces to adorn rich homes, museums and art galleries but to bring awareness about human attitude and cultural heritage. The projection of these works of art could lead to international integration and establish an amicable relationship between people of all communities and further form a peaceful global human society. This book Part 1 to Part 5 also serves the purpose of academic study for art scholars and art researchers all over the world In the entire book, “Master Minds: Creativity in Picasso’s and Husain’s Paintings,” light has been thrown on Picasso’s and Husain’s life and paintings. There is an analytical study of their works of art. The significant aspects dealt with in their paintings are creativity viewed through linear quality, forms, colors, pictorial composition, subject matter, styles, mediums, techniques, similarities and differences in their works of art. I consider myself to be fortunate to avail the opportunity to journey through a significant part of the life and works of these two great artists. Their contribution to the world of art is exemplary for many future generations. Picasso and Husain have proved that the aesthetic artistic trend of thought has no barriers and boundaries. The mind of an artist can reach any part of the universe and create wonders in the form of an art. Picasso’s and Husain’s immortalized paintings mesmerize the observer when their creative activity springs out in their paintings which speak in a silent language of forms and colors. An exposure to visual art in any form has proved to be a form of communication. Our global human society is divided by languages, customs, religions, economic developments and geographical locations, but the visual language in the form of paintings of artists all over the world have united the global society by their creative activity. When an artist’s aesthetic sense is highly developed and his ability to grasp and display is superb he ultimately becomes a pioneer of a unique technique or style. Picasso’s cubism and Husain’s allegorical series of paintings in Husainean style are the products of the vigorous experiments with different mediums and techniques. It has been noticed that their works have a glimpse of the existing styles and techniques mingled with an antiquarian approach where the result is absolutely unique and creative. Their works of art are deemed to immortalize their names as the ever shining prominent stars in the sky of the world of art. There are total 226 illustrations in Part 1 to Part 5 of the ebooks that include a unique analytical study of the paintings and the sketches of the artists, Pablo Picasso and Maqbool Fida Husain.
