Lieutenant Bunners shot down (????)

Before we present our this week story we want to ask you whether you can recognize a painter yourself first. 
Comments are moderated for now and will be opened later ;)

Poet Hazori guarding his Segun - (a la Katsushika Hokusai)

This week we went to the far east to Japan. Japanese painting is still to be discovered, we just did one little step today. I believe Alexandra did an excellent job capturing the style of Japanese painting of the Edo period and reproduced lithography printing style using watercolors. Enjoy a thriller painting of the late samurai era:

Cigarette (a la Alphonse Mucha)

The second "victim" had to be Alphonse Mucha as a most vicous Art Nouveau painter. XX century, first railroads, factories, the century of discovery, new architecture, new art, new art life - it is all Art Nouveau for me. It remains unknown owhere in our smoke-free apartment Alexandra found an inspiration for the painting, but watching it makes me want to have a nice long menthol cigarette in my hand and may be a glass of absinthe in the other one and jump to the next train to Paris - paper, watercolor, nice music, enjoy:

Summer in Toscane (a la Van Gogh)

This week, as a pilot project I have selected my favorite one ear painter Vincent Van Gogh.
He is not only my favorite painter but also a great artist who started or developed new concepts in painting. His "rough brush stroke" style made his paintings very recognizable and sort of "easy" to follow.
