John French Sloan Cornelia Street

Cornelia Street Then & Now Photo and Oil Painting.

This building situated on 2 Cornelia Street is situated in the heart of Greenwich Village, on the West Side of 6th Avenue, is an extraordinary flatiron-style building distinct from the encompassing low-rise buildings, Built in 1900 to house light manufacturing, workplaces, and artists studios, 2 Cornelia Street, was changed to a luxury condominium in 1981.

The atypical building structure is part of the appeal to occupants as the individual condos are uniquely laid out, with high 11 feet ceilings, and those on the sixth floor and above have open views of Greenwich Village and south-facing exposures all the way to lower Manhattan. It does not appear that much has changed. The building to the right of Two Cornelia Street is still there, the one thing that has disappeared is the elevated commuter train and its tracks.

The Adige River Bridge at Verona Then & Now Photo and Oil Painting.

Frits Thaulow painted this oil painting in 1894. Having spanned the river for 2000 years, no one knew that 50 years after his famous painting was completed, that most of the bridge would be destroyed.

The Ponte Pietra, Italian for "Stone Bridge", once known as the Pons Marmoreus, is a Roman arch bridge crossing the Adige River in Verona, Italy. The bridge was completed in 100 BC, and the Via Postumia from Genoa to Aquileia passed over it. It is the oldest bridge in Verona.

It originally flanked another Roman bridge, the Pons Postumius; both structures gave the city on the right bank access to the Roman theater on the east bank. The arch nearest to the right bank of the Adige was rebuilt in 1298 by Alberto I Della Scala. Four arches of the bridge were blown up by retreating German troops in World War II, but it was rebuilt in 1957 with original stone materials.

Cathedral Church At Lincoln Then & Now Photo and Oil Painting.

Lincoln Cathedral is in the town of Lincoln in Lincolnshire, England. In the vicinity of 1307 to 1311 had the central tower was raised to its present height. Then between 1370 to 1400, the western towers were elevated. Each of the three towers had spires until 1549 when the central tower’s spire blew down. For 238 years, it was the tallest building in the world.

The two tall spires in the painting were just added for semi-historical effect since they were not there for more than 300 years before Turner showed up to paint this scene. In fact, this cathedral at one point had 3 spires, not 2 as shown. Also, the gate entrance in the background in the painting is a different shape than the actual gate. So, Turner took a little artistic license in the representation of this scene.

Van Gogh - Vincent Van Gogh Café Terrace at Night

Vincent Van Gogh Café Terrace at Night

Café Terrace at Night Then & Now Photo and Oil Painting.

Café Terrace at Night, also known as The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum in Arles, France, mid-September 1888 is one of the standouts among the most well-known oil painting locations in art, not to mention one of the most famous paintings, ever. Originally the painting was named Café le Soir (Coffeehouse, in the evening).

The painting and the café were both featured in the 1956 film Lust for Life starring Kirk Douglas and later in TV show Doctor Who. A bistro in Croatia was updated to look like the cafe in this painting.
It is still an active cafe, now called The Van Gogh Cafe, and people can still stand in the Place Du Forum, where Van Gogh painted.

Recently, some art historians say that this is a religious painting featuring Jesus and the Apostles based on letters Vincent sent to his brother Theo, referencing the painting and writing that he had a“tremendous need for, shall I say the word—for religion.”

Van Gogh's The Last Supper at The Cafe Terrace at Night?

There are TEN seated customers and the ELEVENTH customer appears to be leaving the patio and going inside the cafe. The TWELFTH person is the waiter (Jesus) standing in the center in a white outfit resembling a tunic from the Crusades. The French window in the back of the waiter/Jesus resembles a cross, but if you take any part of a French window or a glass French door, they are made up of crosses. So, should the oil painting be renamed The Last Supper at The Cafe Terrace at Night?

The Church in Auvers Sur Oise View From The Chevet Then & Now Photo and Oil Painting.

Vincent Van Gogh painted The Church in Auvers-Sur-Oise, View from the Chevet in June of 1890. The church is in Auvers-Sur-Oise, a medieval town about 15 miles northwest of Paris.

Vincent Van Gogh settled in Auvers-Sur-Oise, a town in the edges of Paris. His brother Théo, worried with his well being, convinced him to see Doctor Gachet, himself a painter and a companion of various artists, who accepted to treat him. Between the two months, he was there from May 21, 1890, to his death on July 29, Van Gogh made about seventy paintings, more than one a day, also an extensive number of drawings.

This church, built in the thirteenth century in the early Gothic style, flanked by two Romanesque chapels. If one contrasts this artwork and Claude Monet's works of the Cathedral in Rouen, a short time later, one can see how diverse Van Gogh's approach was from that of the Impressionists. Not at all like Monet, he didn't attempt to render the impression of the play of light on the landmark. Despite the fact the church remains recognizable, the painting does not so much offer the observer a faithful image of reality than a type of "expression" of a church. The creative means utilized by Van Gogh foresee the work of the Fauvists and Expressionist painters.

The French painter Charles-François Daubigny first moored his studio barge Botin there in the 1850s and later acquired three houses in the town. With the approach of a railroad, the town became a tourist destination. It attracted artists such as Corot, Cezanne, and Pissarro, all seeking to capture its rustic natural charms.

Which when comparing the two oil paintings, the second one does not have the Van Gogh characteristics one would expect.

Both are painted on the Rue de la Sansonne near the Auberge Ravoux a small Inn where Van Gogh stayed while in Auvers-Sur-Oise, France. He did a few paintings of the town and surroundings while there. This staircase is a protected historical monument.

The Town Hall at Auvers Then & Now Photo and Oil Painting.

The Town Hall at Auvers July 1890 is a painting by Vincent van Gogh, painted in mid-July of 1890. It is based on the view Van Gogh had when he ventured out in the street from the Auberge Ravoux, a small inn, where he stayed in room number 5. Sitting at the outdoor cafe on the sidewalk outside Auberge Ravoux on July 14, 1890, Bastille Day, Vincent painted Auvers-Sur-Oise's small town hall, which was partly obscured by trees, which he removed and thinned in his painting. Along with different canvases, he painted from his brief period in Auvers-Sur-Oise, for example, The Church at Auvers (see description above) and paintings of houses with thatched roofs, this depiction appears to be reminiscent of scenes from the northern scenes of Van Gogh's adolescence and youth.

During the nineteenth century, various well-known artists lived and worked in Auvers-Sur-Oise, including Paul Cézanne, Charles-François Daubigny, Camille Pissarro, and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. Daubigny's house is now a museum where one can see paintings by the artist. On the off chance that you stroll along the river from Auvers toward Pontoise you would see be able to various perspectives which figured in the artworks of Pissarro.

Olive Trees in a Mountainous Landscape Then & Now Photo and Oil Painting.

Vincent van Gogh painted no less than 18 depictions of olive trees, generally in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence region in 1889, this oil painting is the most acclaimed of the series.

Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo after he voluntarily entered the asylum at Saint-Rémy in the south of France: "I did a landscape with olive trees and also a new study of a starry sky." Later, when the oil paintings had dried, he sent both of them to Theo in Paris, noting: "The olive trees with the white cloud and the mountains behind, as well as the rise of the moon and the night effect, are exaggerations from the point of view of the general arrangement; the outlines are accentuated as in some old woodcuts."

Van Gogh's letters make it clear that he created this specific exceptional vista as a daylight partner to the visionary nocturne of his more well-known canvas, The Starry Night. He felt that both pictures showed, in complementary ways, the principles he shared with his fellow painter Paul Gauguin, with respect to the flexibility of the artist to go beyond "the photographic and silly perfection of some painters" and intensify the experience of color and linear rhythms.” Both paintings are utilizing basically the same pallet colors of blue, green, brown and white, and the rounded undulating movement of the scenery.
