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.
Peter was born Eoyang Hsun in Shanghai in the summer of 1923 as the first of four children of Eoyang Keh. He received his Christian name, Peter, and his artistic name, Yin Ye in China in the mid 1930s. Eoyang Yin Ye appears on many of his works as applied by a seal.

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.
Madonna and Child with Adoring Angel, c. 1468
Tempera on panel
35 x 26-3/4 in. (88.9 x 68 cm)
Norton Simon Art Foundation
Botticelli (1444-1510) was one of the most individual and influential painters in Florence at the end of the fifteenth century. His melodic, linear designs have been greatly admired and are readily apparent in this panel. This composition is unusually sculptural for the artist. Forms are substantial and their disposition leads the eye into a space firmly defined by the stone parapet and middle ground arcade. The rounded hills of the landscape in the background complete the plasticity of the design. In this work, lyricism is bound to the description of natural data and the suggestion of human grace. The subtle combination of function and decoration in Botticelli's use of line provides the poetry of his paintings.
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.
Tracey's life and art are inextricably entwined. She is unflinchingly honest about details of her life, indulging people's voyeuristic greed. She was born in London, raped at 13, and, as promiscuous truant, had two abortions. 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.
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.
Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912)
Born in Dronryp, Holland, Lawrence worked in England until the tragic death of his mistress and muse in 1882. He is interred in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral (London). He painted semi-nudes set against a background of daily life in ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. His work became enormously popular in the United States, where it did much to forge Hollywood's conception of life in ancient times. His pictures were all numbered with Roman numerals, starting with No I when he was 15, and ending with CCCCVIII.
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).
Janine Antoni was born in Freeport, Bahamas in 1964 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. She recieved several prestigious awards including a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellowship in 1998 and the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award in 1999.
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.
Woodengraving, April, 1935 printed by Escher himself. One of the best-known and, to many, one of the most puzzling of the artist's early prints, from his first show at the Whyte Gallery in Washington, D.C., a few years before World War II.
Mapplethorpe was born New York. He studied painting and sculpture and received his B.F.A. at the Pratt Institute. In order to create images for collages of men, Mapplethorpe turned to photography, working as a staff photographer for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. He photographed socialites and celebrities such as John Paul Getty III and Carolina Herrera.

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
