Women readers on the art history / Mujeres lectoras en el arte
Reading (2010). Renata Domagalska (Polish, lives in Spain). Acrylic on canvas. The power of painting gives the beautiful possibility to create better own reality, better weather windows.. Well then my canvases` world it`s colourful, bearer of happy tidings, filled to the brim with positive spirit. I am fascinated by vitality of Life in its variety forms. The point is about the inner STATE, not about the outside circumstances.. — Domagalska
Girl Reading (verso) (c.1930). Philip Naviasky (British, 1894-1983). Oil on board. Pannett Art Gallery. The present work exemplifies Naviasky’s technique of combining patches of bold, saturated colouring against plain backgrounds in a way that illuminates his subjects. Naviasky’s technical accomplishment can be further appreciated in the way two seemingly different colour choices (back wall and coat) blend as corresponding colours.
Reader. Giovanni Fattori (Italian, 1825-1908). In 1859 Fattori became a member of the Macchiaioli, a group of Tuscan painters whose methods and aims are somewhat similar to those of the Impressionists, of which they are considered forerunners. Like their French counterparts, they were criticized for their paintings’ lack of decorative qualities and conventional finish, although the Macchiaioli did not go as far as the Impressionists did in dissolving form in light.
