While enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Charles Camoin met fellow students Henri Matisse and Albert Marquet; the three of them, along with Georges Roualt, Henri Manguin, Andre Derain, and Maurice de Vlaminck, formed the group of artists christened the Fauves ("wild beasts") for their "wild" expressionistic use of color and refusal to conform to the standards of the Paris Salon. The Fauves used both bold lines and flat planes, but emphasized color above all else, choosing it to express emotional...

Carrier Belleuse, Albert Ernest (1824-1887)
Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse, known as the "most prolific and versatile sculptor of his time" as well as "the consummate decorative sculptor of the nineteenth century", was born Carrier de Belleuse to a genteel but impoverished Parisian family. When his father deserted them, the 13-year-old Carrier went to work as an apprentice, first to a stone chiseller, then to Jacques-Henry Fauconnier, the goldsmith who trained Antoine-Louis Barye. The sculptor David d'Angers arranged his entrance into the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, but Carrier disliked its static formalism ...

Were it not for a timely football injury, the world might have missed the lyric beauty of John Chumley's paintings. Chumley was born in 1928 in Rochester, Minnesota where his father was a resident at the Mayor Clinic. After a few years, the family returned to the Knoxville, Tennessee area where John attended the McCampbell School and the Tennessee Military Institute in Sweetwater before receiving a football scholarship to the University of Kentucky. Any future with the NFL was nipped in the bud by a ...

Church, Frederic Edwin (1826-1900)
One of the key instruments involved in forging a sense of an American self after the establishment of the United States would be a group of artists collectively known as the Hudson River School. The Hudson River School was an American landscape movement which began in 1825 and achieved the height of its popularity from 1840 to 1870. The early years of the school were dominated by artists who lived and worked in New York, including its founder Thomas Cole. These artists shared a common...
