Gauguin was born in Paris but lived with his mother in Peru (1851-55). In 1871 he entered the firm of a Paris stockbroker. He painted on Sundays. Gauguin met Pissarro in 1875 and initially Gauguin’s work was close to the Impressionists in subject matter and color scheme. He exhibited with the group five times. By 1886 he had abandoned small, visible brush marks in favour of large areas of flat color and introduced an innovative color scheme that suggested a sense of heightened reality. Gauguin called this technique Synthetism and declared that he hoped painting would return to exploring the “interior life of human beings”. Starting in 1883 Gauguin had devoted himself solely to painting. His travels to Brittany in 1886 and, a year later, to Martinique and Panama, had led him to be inspired by primitive arts and he looked for ideas in Buddhist temple sculptures, Japanese prints, medieval tapestries, folk art and the architecture of Breton Churches. His work became concerned with dreams, myths and visions, influenced partly by his time in Tahiti, where he moved in 1891.
Original art work in watercolours, oils, pastels,... from artist Darko Topalski,feturing landscapes,esoteric and metaphysical questions, signs… "For me art is the simpliest & purest way of communication. Moods, fears,emotions,ideas,all that can be found in a work of art."
The Millinery Shop, 1884/90
Oil on canvas 100 x 110.7 cm
With its unusual cropping and tilted perspective, this painting seems to depict an unedited glimpse of the interior of a small, 19th-century millinery shop, one that might be seen while window-shopping. The young shop girl leans back to examine her creation, her mouth pursed around a pin and her hands gloved to protect the delicate fabric of the hat. Totally absorbed, she seems absolutely unaware of the viewer. Edgar Degas scraped and repainted both the milliner’s hands and her hat-in-progress so that both appear to be moving—an intended contrast with the finished hats on display to her left.
Kisinis Web Art is a virtual gallery that presents artworks by multifaceted artists: painting, photography, sculpture, poetry, graphic arts, music, and multimedia, as well as a heading "Art Squat" dedicated to artists'squats.
Janine was born in Freeport, Bahamas and resides in New York. Antoni’s primary tool for making sculpture is her own body. She has chiseled cubes of lard and chocolate with her teeth, and washed away the faces of soap busts made in her own likeness.
Siqueiros was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. He portrayed Mexico's history and economic conditions in visually bold political terms inspired by class struggle. He was expelled from Mexico and came to Los Angeles and returned to Mexico. His dramatic murals remain in public display in California and Mexico.

To bring up images from his subconscious mind, Dalí, a Surrealist, induced hallucinatory states in himself by a process he described as paranoiac critical. He depicted a dream world in which commonplace objects are juxtaposed, deformed, or otherwise metamorphosed in a bizarre and irrational fashion. Dalí portrayed these objects in meticulous, almost painfully realistic detail and usually placed them within bleak, sunlit landscapes.
Roy was born in New York. He had his first one-man exhibition in 1951 and worked as a commercial artist until 1957. He painted parodies of American twenties' art such as Remington's cowboy-and-Indian scenes. He used elements of commercial art, comics and advertisements in his drawings and painting. He produced large format paintings for the New York State Pavilion at the World's Fair in New York.
Chris Ofili won the Tate's prestigious Turner Prize in 1998. He is famous for the Holy Virgin Mary, canvas with elephant dung, exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999.
Holy Virgin Mary
A gorgeous, sweet and respectful treatment of the subject, rendering her as a sternly hieratic African personage in petal-like blue robes. Much of the painting's surface shimmers ecstatically with glitter in yellow resin. Tiny collaged cutouts of bare bottoms from porn magazines evoke putti, and allude to the element of fertility in Mary's symbology, which Ofili did not invent.
As for the pachyderm product, it is one smallish, attached lump, capped with what appears to be black-and-white beadwork (in reality pushpin heads) in a design of concentric circles. Elephant poop turns out to be innocuous-looking stuff, not unpleasant in color and almost decorative in texture (lots of straw).
MacDonald-Wright was born in Charlottesville, North Carolina. He attended Santa Monica High school and the Art Students League in California, and the Sorbonne and Academies Julian, Colarossi, and Beaux Arts in Paris. He served as the Director of the Art Students League from 1923-30, and oversaw the WPA arts program in the western U.S. during the Depression.
Convinced that color and sound were equivalent phenomena and that one could orchestrate the colors in a painting the way a composer arranged notes and chords in a musical composition, Macdonald-Wright developed Synchromism, a system of painting based on color scales. Later in his life he taught Asian aesthetics at UCLA.
The Last Supper
1498 Fresco, 460 x 880 cm (15 x 29 ft);
Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie (Refectory), Milan by Leonardo Da Vinici (1452-1519).
Leonardo Da Vinici, a painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect, and engineer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. His notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of his time.
Freleng simply made good cartoons, and kept making them year after year. He earned his studio three Academy Awards. Freleng's forte was musical cartoons. He animated the Pink Panther series. The diminutive and hotheaded Yosemite Sam was inspired by Freleng.
Tracey Emin was born in London in 1963. She was raped at 13, and, as promiscuous truant, had two abortions. She is unflinchingly honest about details of her life, indulging people's voyeuristic greed.
In 1994 she exhibited a phial of a tissue from one of her abortions and a crumpled Benson & Hedges packet that her uncle had been holding when he was decapitated in a car crash. In 1998 she exhibited My Bed, complete with dirty sheets, bloody knickers and used condoms. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1999.

Participants should promply install the html code.
Participants may update their information using their id and password.
All of the information may be edited except for the id.
The rankings are reset each month.
Certain referals are not counted and do not advance a site in the rankings at all; others are only partial counted.
These include, on occasion, referals from sites by servers with the same or substantially similar IP numbers within a short
interval, referals that would cause the ratio of total hits in to be out of proportion to the traffic out, referals
from small windows or frames or that otherwise appear not to be from an actual viewer, and referals from pages without
the logo or the word Passionflower in hypertext.
Slowloading images are omitted even if the participating site is among the top ranked sites.
