They are at the base of my expression and make my paintings attractive."

Southern Atelier Now Accepting Applications for the Miano Apprenticeship Program

Published on October 25, 2021

The Southern Atelier is proud to present their apprenticeship program under the direction of ARC Associate Living Master Charles Miano, designed as a 4-level program with a completely unique 2-fold course of study.

Apprentices may benefit from having their own individual work area, teaching opportunities, public gallery representation, and a key to the Atelier studio, located in luminous Sarasota, Florida.

Titian's Vision of Women

Published on October 5, 2021

In Venice, shortly after 1500, Titian began to produce great paintings in which women were depicted in a new light. Informed by contemporary love, poetry and literature, Titian and his contemporaries – including Palma Vecchio, Lorenzo Lotto, Paris Bordone, Jacopo Tintoretto and Paolo Veronese – began to create poetic, sensual, idealizing and ground-breaking depictions of women that inspired European painting for centuries.

This important exhibition examines the Venetian image of women in the context of sixteenth-century ideals and contemporary society.

The exhibition takes place from October 5, 2021 - January 22, 2022. Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, Heldenplatz, Vienna, 1010, Austria.

Remember Me

Published on October 1, 2021

From the late 1400's to the present day, people sitting for portraits were keen to be presented in the most favorable manner possible. All aspects of the composition – the facial expression, symbolism, pose, background and clothing – were carefully planned out. Where one portrait prioritized beauty, the other focused on exuding authority. "Remember Me" sheds light on how people wanted to be seen, in themes such as beauty, authority, ambition, love, family, knowledge and faith.

This exhibition runs from October 1, 2021 - January 16, 2022 at the Rijksmuseum, 1 Museumstraat, Amsterdam, 1071 XX, Netherlands.
