The magic women of Felix Mas.
Felix Mas was born in 1935 in Barcelona. Educated in Spanish art schools, and later traveled to Europe and America. After that, he worked in Barcelona as an illustrator and designer.
Felix Mas depicts beautiful women with hypnotic eyes that almost never look directly at the viewer. Masa women are immersed in their dreams, they are surrounded by exquisite interiors, dressed in Japanese kimonos, fanning Chinese fans. Painting of the Spanish artist combines the symbolism of the Pre-Raphaelites and the love of ornaments, borrowed from the yugendsti Jan Kasprzycki art for sale
l. And with this unmistakable recognition of the Spanish origin of painting Mas. Despite the refinement of forms, lines and subtlety of color, the pictures clearly radiate the temperament of flamenco and the heat of Spain's sun.
"Every time I try to be like the image of a woman who creates a master, sometimes it turns out, but more often it's impossible," says one of the artist's models. Women who inhabit the canvases of Felix Mas have no place in real life.
A look inward, a Japanese kimono, peacock feathers adorning a complex hairstyle and a mysterious light pouring from the depths of the invented worlds. Felix Mas creates a reality shimmering with exquisite colors, around which there will always be warmth.
In 1966, the artist's paintings first appeared in the gallery Galleria James. In 1974, Felix Mas came to Venezuela, where his first personal exhibition was being prepared. The artist is fascinated by Venezuela, and he decides to stay in Caracas. Mas has contacts with American galleries. In 1982, Felix Mas moved to America. Exhibitions of his paintings become an event in the artistic life of New York, Los Angeles, Chicago.
Now the name of Felix Mas is known on both sides of the Atlantic. He held more than 40 solo exhibitions in Venezuela, Spain, the USA, Belgium and Japan.

Painting for Dummies
For hundreds of years the world culture has presented us with a myriad of brilliant painters. One trouble - remembering them all is not possible. But we, representatives of creative professions, still want to have at least some knowledge on this topic.
And best of all, any information fits into our overcrowded heads, if filed easily and with humor.
- Long ago, in the first year, we had a history of art. Lectures were held on Saturday at 8 am and with five "teachers" stood at the door, and then closed it to the castle. And that's all. Did not have time - pass. Throughout the year he showed us slides of paintings, ranging from rock art and ending with Russian artists of the 90s. And all these slides were in his cards. Here's a pack. And at the end of the year, as usual, the exam. First two questions, and then the execution in an individual order. By the number of your passes for a year (!), He took out postcards from a pack. Vbazboy. And I had to say the author or the name. Mona Lisa and a couple more remembered quickly. And with the rest of the mulen we need to do something. And so, to guess the author, we in the group derived a classification. And you know, in 97 cases out of a hundred - it works! Still!
If you see in the picture a dark background and all the suffering on your faces - this is Titian.
The exception - this is a golopopaya person without signs of thought on his face. You can remember one thing. Venus, not venus, but there is something venereal in it:
If in the picture it is an attack of priests and cellulite, even among muzhiks - do not sum it up - this is Rubens.
If in the picture the peasants are like the curly-haired curly-haired women or simply the Italian fagots - this is Caravaggio.
Bab, he did draw a half times. On the next # link her picture - a woman. Gorgonyan Meduza Arutyunovna. Why she looks like a jonidepa - the riddle is cleaner than the smile of the Mona Lisa.
If the picture is a lot of little people - Bruegel.
Many small people + little incomprehensible x * yni - Bosch.
If all people look like homeless people, at night by the light of a dim lamp - this is Rembrandt.
If you can easily paint a picture of a couple of fat-cheek cupids and lambs (or they are already there) - this is Bushe.
Beautiful, all naked and figures like bodybuilders after drying - Michelangelo.
You see the ballerina - you speak Degas. You say Degas - you see the ballerina.
Contrastingly, a bit too bluish, and bluish, and everyone has skinny bearded faces - El Greco.
And, finally, if everyone, even aunts, looks like Putin - this is Jan van Eyck
P.S .: Monet - spots, Mane - people.
A story about three great artists, whose exhibitions this year will be held in Moscow and St. Petersburg In 2018 in Moscow and St. Petersburg there will be exhibitions of three completely different artists: Vasily Vereshchagin, Pablo Picasso and Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin. They are different, but they are very similar in their genius. We tried to figure out the secret of their incredible success and what elements make up their greatness. Origin Jean Metzinger Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin. Mother and child. 1927 Petrov-Vodkin: Kuzma was born in 1878 in the family of a shoemaker in the town of Khvalynsk near Saratov, and nothing foreshadowed that one day he would become a great artist. After the whole country began to talk about him with aspiration, Petrov-Vodkin remained a very simple and straightforward person, "a native of the people." Picasso: The interweaving of Spanish, Italian and French roots in the pedigree of Maitre does not explain why the parents gave him such a long name: Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Maria de los Remedios Cipriano Crispiniano de la Santisima Trinidad Martir Patricio Ruiz and Picasso. As a result, for the presentation, the artist chose only one part - the mother's name: Picasso. By the way, there is no right stress: you can say Picasso and Picasso. Vereshchagin: Vereshchagin was the son of a nobleman and a descendant of a fairly well-off and respectable family from Cherepovets. He, like his three brothers, was supposed to become a military - at least so the parents dreamed. However, the outstanding talent and philosophical mentality determined for him a different fate. Education Petrov-Vodkin: His path to mastery was very thorny. At first Kuzma tried to become a railwayman, but failed the entrance exam. Then I got a job as a handyman in ship repair shops. And only with the support of the architect Meltzer, who by chance happened to be passing through Khvalynsk and noticed his sketches, he entered the art school first in Petersburg, and then in Moscow. But the first drawing lessons he received not in there, but in the Khvalin icon painters - he really liked icons. Picasso: Picasso did not have to go far: he became acquainted with the fine arts in the classroom with his father, who was a drawing teacher. From the very beginning, his creative path did not raise questions: the art school, the art school of La Lonja, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid ... Only he constantly skipped classes: he thought he could draw so perfectly. Vereshchagin: Vereshchagin honestly tried to become a military, as parents wanted, but he could not. After the end of the Naval Cadet Corps and several attempts to go to sea, he discovered a seasickness. So with the career of the military was over, and he with a clear conscience took up the case, which always lay the soul - for drawing. At first he studied at the Petersburg Academy of Arts, and later - at the artist Jérôme in Paris. Form style Petrov-Vodkin: The corporate style of Petrov-Vodkin is a fusion of symbolism, modernity and a bit of his personal, touching Russian soul. In his paintings there is a cosmic sphericity, and faces of saints in the faces of ordinary passers-by, and profound metaphors. In ordinary everyday scenes, important human principles arise: the tenderness of motherhood, the openness of childhood and respect for work. Some paintings by Petrov-Vodkin are painted in the same palette as icons: red, blue and gold. Picasso: Picasso is a genius, everyone has heard about it. True, not everyone understands why. To explain this phenomenon in two words is impossible, but we will try: he broke the pattern. His paintings were painted in a style that had never existed before, and they broadcast thoughts and feelings that no one had ever laid before the visual arts. All his stars met on his work: courage, innovation, sensuality, incredible charisma, artistic skill and, of course, a fertile social ground. All this together has given rise to a new phenomenon in world culture - Picasso's cubism. A family of comedians painting by Pablo Picasso Pablo Picasso. Family of Comedians Vereshchagin: If Vereshchagin was born 100 years later, Russia would have lost a great artist, but acquired a great reportage photographer - his pictures are so realistic and accurate. Vereshchagin did not like it when he was called a battle artist, although he wrote a war all his life. For example, his famous "Apotheosis of War" he jokingly called a still-life. Travel notes, which he brought from every expedition and travel, today really draw more on reporting from the hot spots. Women Petrov-Vodkin: Petrov-Vodkin had one love for life: Mar's wife, whom he met when he was staying at the boarding-house of her mother in France. He wrote: "I found a woman on Earth ... In our sky the sun rose, we are imprisoned one in the other." Mara has always been for her husband an invisible support and the main connoisseur of his
