Renoirs

Hey everyone,

OK, so who would not love to have a Renoir in their art collection, I know I would, so I have created a set for you called "Renoirs".  There are a total of nine paintings in this set, I have only shown two in my image as I did not want to loose the detail on them.  These are framed with a Louis XV frame, and have two colour channels (inner and outer frame).

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (184 - 1919) was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style.  As a celebrator of beauty, and especially feminine sensuality, it has been said the "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau.

These are two tile paintings and are base game compatible.

Hope you like!

Georges Seurat

Hi all,

Today I have another request from my request page for some Seurat paintings.  This is a set of nine paintings that are two tile in size.

Georges Pierre Seurat (1859 - 1891) was a French Post-Impressionist painter and draftsman.  He is noted for his innovative use of drawing media and for devising the technique of painting known as pointillism.  His large-scale work "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-Impressionism. It is on of the icons of late 19th century painting.

Seurat died in Paris on March 29, 1891 at the age young age of 31, the cause  of death is uncertain.

Boats

Hey everyone,

Today I have a set of nine wonderful paintings called "Boats".

Boats have served as short-distance transportation since early times.  The earliest boats have been predicted to be logboats.  The oldest boats to be found by archaeological excavation are logboats from around 7,000 - 10,000 years ago.  The oldest recovered boat in the world is the Pesee canoe; it is a dugout or hollowed tree trunk from a Pinus sylvestris.  It was constructed somewhere between 8,200 and 7,600 B.C.

Boats played a very important part in the commerce between the Indus Valley Civilization and Mesopotamia.  The accounts of historians Herodotus, Pliny the Elder, and Strabo suggest that boats were being used for commerce and traveling.

Watercolors

Hello all,

Today I have a set of three watercolor paintings.  This set is called "Watercolors".

Watercolor painting (also aquarelle from French), is a painting method.  A watercolor is the medium or the resulting artwork in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle.  The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper, other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leather, fabric, wood, and canvas.  Watercolors are usually transparent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colors.

This is a two tile painting, and is base game compatible.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau

Hi everyone,

Today I have an update for you of nine William-Adolphe Bouguereau paintings.  This was a request from Janice....thanks for the request Janice, I just may have to do a few more sets; wonderful paintings!!

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825 - 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist.  In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body.  During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work.  As the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avant-garde.  By the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art feel out of favor with the public, due in part to changing tastes.  in the 1980's, a revival of interest in figure painting led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his work.  Throughout the course of his life, Bouguereau executed 822 know finished paintings, although the whereabouts of many are still unknown.

Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Mirror

Hi all,

As mentioned in my previous post regarding the new sculpture in the new Sims Set "Palace of Versailles", I was a bit disappointed in the "Commissioned By Kings" painting that is actually a sculpture.  After making the paintings I thought this would also make a nice mirror, so this is what I have for you called "Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Mirror".

This is a two tile mirror with full credit to EA Games for the mesh, and also has 3 colour channels.

Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Painting

Hi all,

I have done a conversion of the "Commissioned By Kings" sculpture from the new Palace of Versailles set.  I was a bit disappointed that this was a sculpture and not a painting to hang on the wall...........so I made it into a painting you can hang on the wall and have called it "Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Painting".

The paintings depicted are those by one of the great French Rococo painters, François Boucher (1703 - 1770).  François Boucher was a French painter, a proponent of Rococo taste, know for his idyllic and voluptuous paintings on classical themes, decorative allegories representing the arts or pastoral occupation, intended as a sort of two-dimensional furniture.  He was perhaps the most celebrated decorative artist of the 18th century.  He also painted several portraits of his illustrious patroness, Madame de Pompadour.

This is a two tile painting that is base game compatible.  Of course, full credit to EA Games for the mesh.  This painting has 3 colour channels too.

Monet Fancy Frame Paintings

Hi everyone,

Today I have a set of six paintings by Claude Monet called "Monet Fancy Frame Paintings". These took a bit to figure out, but I think they turned out not to bad.  I could have fit all six on the preview, but the detail was lost, so I have four shown so you can see the detail.

Ah, Monet........one of my favorite artists ever!

Claude Monet (1840 - 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air (open air) landscape painting.  The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting "Impression, Sunrise".

These are two tile paintings and are base game compatible.

Cézanne Landscapes

Hi everyone,

Today I have a set of six Paul Cézanne landscape paintings called "Cézanne Landscapes".

Paul Cézanne (1839 - 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century.  Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism.  The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed.

Cézanne's often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable.  He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields.

This is a two tile painting that is base game compatible.

Down By The Sea

Hey all,

Today I have another set of nine paintings that are two tile in size called "Down By The Sea".

I love these paintings in that you can almost hear the thunder of the waves, and feel the salty spray on your face.  As beautiful as these are, what also comes across in these paintings is the powerful strength of the waves that warns us also to treat the sea with respect.

These are base game compatible.

Dutch Baroque Still Life

Hi everyone,

Today I have a set of six three tile paintings called "Dutch Baroque Still Life".

The tradition of still life painting has been around since antiquity, and example of this form of paintings can be found in almost every culture. The popularity of still life is immense, making it very hard to understand why many through out the history of art have excluded it from the category of high arts.

The hierarchy that had developed established that history and religious painting were considered the highest style of painting, while portraiture, scenes of everyday life, animal paintings, landscapes and still life were considered minor forms of art.

These “minor” forms of art were executed by highly talented artists, using the same sophisticated techniques as those used in the more highly regarded fields of history and religious painting.  Artists who chose to create still life paintings carefully selected, studied, grouped, and depicted the objects in their works in order to present to their viewer highly realistic images. Still life painting was highly popular among members of all social classes and were often purchased at extremely high prices.

During the Baroque period, masters of still life from Italy, France, Flanders, Holland and Spain painted still life scenes of fruit, flower pieces, musical instruments, fish and game, and vessels used in the household. These objects were painted with the utmost realism but with all the dedication and seriousness that had once been reserved for the human form.

Colourful Abstract

Hi everyone,

Today I have a set of six abstract paintings without frames called "Colourful Abstract".

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, colour and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.  By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy.

Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art.  This departure from accurate representation can be only slight, or it can be partial, or it can be complete.

This is base game compatible.

Just A Mirror

Hi all,

Today I have a simple mirror for you called "Just A Mirror" in six recolours.

The first mirrors used by people were most likely pools of dark, still water, or water collected in a primitive vessel.  The earliest manufactured mirrors were pieces of polished stone.

In China, people began making mirrors with the use of silver-mercury amalgams as early as 500 AD.  Some time during the early Renaissance, European manufacturers perfected a superior method of coating glass with a tin-mercury amalgam.  The exact date and location of the discovery is unknown, but in the 16th century, Venice, a city famed for its glass making expertise, became a center of mirror production using this new technique.

The invention of the silvered-glass mirror is credited to German chemist Justus von Liebig in 1835.

This is base game compatible.

Hope you enjoy!
