Jacob Jordaens, Attrib: Antwerp, Belgium, 1593-1678. This exquisite oil on panel of an elderly man is 18.5cm W by 26cm H. It is apparently unsigned with a collection seal and an old Park Bernet Sticker. There is some minor in painting on the top edge of the painting and the panel is slightly convex but not split. It was in a prominent Cincinnati Collection. In 1607 he entered the studio of Adam van Noort, whose daughter he later married.In 1615 he became a member of the Guild of Saint Luke, and in 1621, its President. He painted only a few portraits, among them his well-known self-portraits. For the most part he worked on large and ambitious decorative projects, employing a staff of students and assistants. Born in another age or in another country, Jordaens might have been considered a great painter. But Vermeer, Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyck were all famous in the Low Countries at the same time as Jordaens and so he took a back seat to them. Painters of the time helped each other out on the monumental canvases they painted and some scholars believe that approximately thirty paintings and seventy drawings attributed to Rubens were really Jordaen's work. He died in 1678, the same day as his daughter.

George Colin, AmericanBorn and raised in California (b. 1929), George Colin lives in Salisbury, Illinois near Springfield, where he and his wife Winnie run their gallery Colin Folk Art. Though he calls himself a folk artist, Colin doesn't fit into the unschooled or outsider art genre. His early landscapes were representational, while his recent work has become more abstract, including studies of ballerinas, dogs, even turnips. He began painting and drawing during the 1950's after subscribing to a Norman Rockwell correspondence course, and amassed a collection of over 7,000 pieces before being "discovered" in the mid-1980's by a Chicago photographer. The retired flour mill worker has a body of work which includes over 10,000 drawings and painting as well as more than 4,000 pieces of wooden folk art and sculpture. To date his work can be found in the Museum of American Folk Art in New York City, within the private collections of both President George Bush and Oprah Winfrey, and within shops and restaurants throughout Chicago. Articles on Mr. Colin have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, North Shore Magazine, as well as on ABC News and NBC's "Weekends Away". Whether it's labeled as "Primative", "Post-Naive" or "Folk Art", George Colin's work is fresh, colorful and very original. , 1929

Henry Ward Ranger, American (1858 - 1916, active/lived in New York, Connecticut. Henry Ranger is known for landscape painting-forest interiors. He was a leading artist of the Tonalist movement, was responsible for the establishment of the art colony at Old Lyme, Connecticut. Raised in Geneseo and Syracuse, New York, he studied art in France, where he was influenced by the Barbizon School and a group of Dutch painters called "The Hague." Ranger exhibited at the Paris Salon and the Paris Exposition, and had a one-man show at Knoedler's in New York in 1892. He became a successful lecturer and painter, exhibiting at the Brooklyn Art Association, the National Academy, the Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Corcoran Gallery, and several expositions. In the 1890s began painting in Old Lyme. Captivated by the area's beauty, he established the American Barbizon School there, which attracted many artists. While he sketched out-of-doors, Ranger finished his works in the studio in the traditional academic manner. Soon after Hassam's arrival, Ranger left Old Lyme to start a new colony at Noank, near Mystic on the Connecticut coast. Ranger died in 1916 without family and bequeathed his estate to the National Academy of Design to establish a fund for the acquisition of works by American artists. His own works are represented in many American museums.

Lazar Markovich Lissitzky, 1890 – 1941, better known as El Lissitzky was a Russian artist, designer, photographer, typographer, polemicist and architect. He was an important figure of the Russian Avant Garde, helping develop suprematism with his mentor, Kazimir Malevich, and designing numerous exhibition displays and propaganda works for the Soviet Union. His work greatly influenced the Bauhaus and constructivist movements, and he experimented with production techniques and stylistic devices that would go on to dominate 20th-century graphic design.[1] Lissitzky's entire career was laced with the belief that the artist could be an agent for change, later summarized with his edict, "das zielbewußte Schaffen" (goal-oriented creation).[2] Lissitzky, of Jewish оrigin, began his career illustrating Yiddish children's books in an effort to promote Jewish culture in Russia, a country that was undergoing massive change at the time and that had just repealed its antisemitic laws. When only 15 he started teaching; a duty he would stay with for most of his life. Over the years, he taught in a variety of positions, schools, and artistic media, spreading and exchanging ideas. He took this ethic with him when he worked with Malevich in heading the suprematist art group UNOVIS, when he developed a variant suprematist series of his own, Proun, and further still in 1921, when he took up a job as the Russian cultural ambassador to Weimar Germany, working with and influencing important figures of the Bauhaus and De Stijl movements during his stay. In his remaining years he brought significant innovation and change to typography, exhibition design, photomontage, and book design, producing critically respected works and winning international acclaim for his exhibition design. This continued until his deathbed, where in 1941 he produced one of his last works – a Soviet propaganda poster rallying the people to construct more tanks for the fight against Nazi Germany. In 2014, the heirs of the artist, in collaboration with Van abbemuseum and the leading worldwide scholars, the Lissitzky foundation was established, to preserve the artist's legacy and preparing a catalogue raisone of the artist oeuvre.

Godfried Schalcken or Gottfried Schalken (1643 – November 16, 1706), was a Dutch genre and portrait painter. He was noted for his mastery in reproducing the effect of candlelight, and painted in the exquisite and highly polished manner of the Leiden fijnschilders. Godfried Schalcken was born in 1643 at Dordrecht, and he studied under Samuel van Hoogstraten in Dordrecht before he moved to Leiden, into the studio of Gerard Dou (1613–1675), one of Rembrandt's most famous pupils. His earlier genre pictures very closely resemble Dou's work. He worked in Leiden until c. 1675, then returned to Dordrecht until 1691, after which he settled in The Hague, where he continued to paint until his death, near age 63, in 1706. He also visited England (1692–1697), but his uncouth manners and bad temper alienated him from the society there. In 1703 he was employed by Johann Wilhelm, Elector Palatine in Düsseldorf. He died in The Hague. Schalcken painted several portraits, of which the half-length of William III of England, now in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, is a good example. Like Dou, Schalcken specialized in small scenes lit by candlelight, a technique that found favour with the fijnschilders (fine art painters). Examples are in Buckingham Palace, the Louvre, Vienna and Dresden. His painting, Lady, Come into the Garden (Buckingham Palace), was singled out by his pupil Arnold Houbraken as representative of his oeuvre. Other good examples are Old Woman Scouring a Pan and Soldier Giving Money to a Woman (London, National Gallery), Ceres Seeking Proserpine and Old Man Writing (Louvre), Woman (National Museum of Serbia), Girl Blowing Out Taper (Munich), Girl Reading Letter (Dresden Gallery), The Boy Angling (Berlin); and Toilet by Candle (The Hague). The Buckingham Palace collection also possesses an interior by Schalcken. His history paintings are less-well known. The atmospheric work of Schalcken provided the inspiration for Sheridan Le Fanu's gothic horror story Strange Event in the Life of Schalken the Painter (sic), which was adapted as Schalcken the Painter, and broadcast by the BBC on 23 December in 1979.
