Wassily Kandinsky was one of the best-known abstract painters and one of the most influential artists of his generation. He was born in Moscow, Russia on December 4th, 1866. From 1886-92, he studied law and economics at the University of Moscow. Kandinsky declined a teaching position in order to study art in Munich, Russia with Anton Azbe from 1897 to 1899 and at the Kunstakademie with Franz von Stuck in 1900. He died in a suburb of Paris on December 13th, 1944.
While in Paris, he met Camille Pissarro an Impressionist painter. Pissarro was able to help the young developing artist.

A year after his death in 1907 his paintings were displayed in Paris in a large museum-like retrospective. This viewing affected the direction of new and upcoming artist, which elevated him to his position as one of the most significant artists of the 19th century and to the creation of Cubism.
When Delacroix was at the age of seventeen, in 1815, he began to take painting lessons from Pierre Guerin. While there he met Theodore Gericault, a romantic painter, and became heavily influenced by him and his work. Delacroix’s first painting, The Barque of Dante, was accepted by the Paris Salon in 1822 that marked the beginning of his artistic career. He was a French painter whose work influence extended to the impressionists and exemplified 19th century romanticism. He remained the dominant French romantic painter throughout his life.
Every year he submitted canvases to the artists' Salons, but was regularly rejected. Cezanne did his first show with a group named the "Society of Painters, Draftsman, Sculptors, and Engravers" comprised of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Pissarro and Cezanne himself. The group's first show was in April in 1874, they received bad revise. Cezanne did one more show with that group, third for the group, in 1877. That show went better than the first one.
Monet never painted a nude. Monet and Degas' earlier works have notably different brush stroke styles. While Monet has tended to lean towards the short, choppy and yet delicate, Degas’ strokes blended virtuously unnoticeable. However, these seem to correspond with their earlier themes and objectives. Monet mastered the art of illustrating waves with his brush stroke style, Degas, the curve of a woman’s body or the sheer coat of a young colt.

It is believed that nearer to the end of his life, his vision declined and by 1907, was forced to continue painting in just pastels and taking photographs. His vision worsened and by 1910, could only continue creating sculptures. It is finally believed that Edgar Degas had to stop all kinds of artwork in 1912 due to his poor eyesight, and because he was forced out of his house because the building was being torn down.
Born on November 14th 1840 in Paris, Claude Monet is mostly known as the French impressionist painter whose painting "Impression, Sunrise" (1873) started an entire art movement called Impressionism that focused more on the form, light, and color rather than realism. A brilliant artist, yet he was plagued with spells of depression and self-doubt. In 1873, after years of being financially in-trouble, one of Monet’s paintings titled "Impression, Sunrise" which depicted the city of ... ... middle of paper ... ...to find, on their own, the right note. And they have succeeded.” Here, it can be seen that Ajalbert was praising the Impresionists artists for embracing their individuality and abandoning conventional methods. An artist named Odilon Redon did not support the Impressionist movement because he stated “I refused to board the Impressionist ship because I found the ceiling too low.
Cezanne, Lowry and Landscapes Cezanne Paul Cezanne, who was the son of a wealthy banker, became a painter in the 1860s in Paris when he quit his studies of Law. By 1874 he was painting landscapes in the Impressionist manner and had some of his work included in their first exhibition held during that very same year. He painted in the Impressionistic manner, but sheared off in a different direction to the main body of Impressionist painters. The main body of Impressionist painters were concerned with the 'fleeting effects of light and colour', and in order to capture the surface impression of that moment 'they had to work fluently and quickly'. 's analysis was far more prolonged and pains-taking; He spent so long analysing his subjects that some of his work was never finished.
Degas left school and traveled to Italy for three years where he studied the works of renaissance artist such as Michelangelo and da Vinci. Degas often struggled with self-doubt in his work, which often lead to unfinished projects. He was advice by Jeanniot to work from memory rather than nature. Degas returned to Paris in 1859 with the intention of mastering his skill as a painter. He painted large portraits his family members as well as historical scenes.
There are generally two types of paintings- representational and abstract. While representational painting portrays recognizable objects, abstract painting does not look like a particular object. Instead, abstract art is made up of designs, shapes and colors. (http://www.harley.com/art/abstract-art/ ) The meaning of abstract art is, in its most simplified form, art that relies on the emotions of the artist and the elements of design rather than exact representation. This broad definition allows artists almost unlimited freedom of expression.
