About the Item

EDWARD BEALE CV 1968 - 72 Camberwell School of Art 1976 - 79 Royal Academy Schools Awards: David Murray Travelling Prize (twice) Edwin Landseer Prize S20 August My paintings are about how things feel as much as how they look. Working in front of the subject gives a sense of immediacy and being outside in the elements always presents unexpected episodes and occurrences. Coping with these keeps the whole painting process vital and exciting. The balance between control and chance means that a painting will undergo numerous states before it reaches a conclusion. While I am methodical about the practical aspects of painting, the process itself may go through a chaotic phase until I arrive at the end result. Drawing gives the underlying structure but the brush marks must stand for the thing I am painting in a way that makes the viewer intensely aware of the paint itself. Working wet-into-wet can make the paint build up to an impasto. Working on the spot sets certain limitations and so the biggest landscapes are usually no more than 2 by 4 feet. I paint on wooden panels prepared with a white ground. The locality where I live in Lambeth has undergone much change over the last few decades and my paintings form a documentation of demolition and rebuilding. When possible I paint from rooftops to get a wide vantage point and to overcome some of the practical difficulties of painting at pavement level. For a few months I was given access to a 5th floor balcony on the Albert Embankment from where there were unimpeded views upstream towards Battersea and Vauxhall and downstream towards Westminster. New building developments have already altered those views. For some years I have painted near the Pyrenees around Ceret. There are interesting contrasts between the orchards in blossom and the higher ground which is a wilderness of dry wooded scrubland inhabited by wild boar. The Tramontane wind affects the landscape, making the cork oaks bend and grow in irregular shapes. The area presents a different colour and tonal range as the light is so much stronger than at home. A few years ago I painted in the Segovia region of Spain which is on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela. The countryside is beautiful with early crops of corn, but it is also tinged with an atmosphere created by herds of grazing fighting bulls and vultures flying above. Developments in response to working in the open apply to studio work. I look for the fundamental dynamics of composition, colour and form to create a sense of rhythm and movement. Portraits and life painting present unique problems. I try and convey the fleshiness and presence of the sitter. Resemblance is very much to the fore when painting people yet it is one of the most subjective and fluid elements. Each painting presents unique problems and finding solutions makes the process endlessly fascinating. Edward Beale very sadly passed away in 2017.

  • Au Pied mon Arbre
    By Jean-François Baudoin
    Located in Pollenca, Illes Baleares
    Born in 1870 in Saint-Martin-de-Ré, a beautiful island off the coast of La Rochelle, Jean Franck Baudoin was immersed in the world of art from an early age. His father was a sculptor who worked from a studio in Paris and realizing his son’s latent talents sent him there to live with his uncle. Just nineteen, he became heavily influenced by the Impressionist painters, particularly Monet, Degas and Van Gogh. Although he was already painting, his family thought it wise to get him some formal training. To this end, he enrolled at the Academie Julian where he counted William Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury amongst his teachers and Marcel Baschet and Henri Royer...

  • Modernist Oil Painting Bucolic Valley Woods Landscape Ralph Della Volpe
    Located in Surfside, FL
    RALPH DELLA-VOLPE (1923-2017) Fine Art Painter, American Contemporary The Valley Oil on canvas Hand signed lower left and again to stretcher and verso 16 x 20 inches. frame dimensions: 22 1/4 x 26 inches, wood frame Provenance: The Estate of the artist Ralph Della Volpe TRAINING: National Academy of Design The Art Students League, NYC Ralph Eugene Della-Volpe's semi-abstract paintings of often simplified, minimalist, beach scenes and anonymous portraits "convey profound awareness of mood and character", and his paintings are hardly as literal as they may first appear (Arts Magazine. "New York Exhibitions". 1965). His brightly-colored, light-infused, ornamental compositions bring together aspects of many modernist art movements including Fauvism, Impressionism, Symbolism, and abstraction. Della-Volpe first studied painting at the prestigious National Academy of Design before joining the Army during World War II. As a soldier, the artist saw action on Utah Beach, winning a Purple Heart, and his experiences undoubtedly affected his later artistic style. The Fauvist "coloristic exuberance" found in the works beginning in the mid 1960's, with their vibrant fuschias and yellows, seem to offset what could be an otherwise solemn tone to many of his works at the time. Upon his return from military service, Della-Volpe’s style evolved significantly. In the years following the second world war, his work was solemn, imbued with a quiet darkness. Over time, this darkness faded: by the 1950s, influenced by his time at the Art Students League, his oeuvre was overtaken by the tenants of Abstract Expressionism. Paintings from this period boast bold brushwork, energetic compositions, and strong color. Although the next decade saw Della-Volpe trade expressionist abstraction for figuration, his love of color continued to shine through his work.Della-Volpe took a teaching position as the first artist-in-residence at Bennett College in Millbrook, New York where he remained for 28 years, serving as chairman of the Art Department for most of that time. Obviously influenced by impressionism 's preoccupation with the treatment of light, Della-Volpe's own works have a "faultless tonal quality, with its sense of failing light—the areas of silvery gray deepening into rosy tans" (Arts Magazine. "In the Galleries". 1960). Della-Volpe has exhibited widely throughout his career and has lectured on art at colleges, universities, and galleries across the country.
