Domenico Ghirlandaio, Italian, 1449-1494, Florence. Oil on panel in sepia tones. He lived when the Italian Renaissance was gathering speed and producing an astonishing succession of painters of genius. "Now that I have begun to get into the spirit of this art, I wish they would give me the walls of Florence to paint the whole circuit with stories." This is said to be Ghirlandaio's reaction to painting.popes, princes and members of the newly flourishing class of merchants. Banks gave him plenty of walls in Rome and Florence to cover with scenes from scripture and from the lives of saints. Through most of the scenes he scattered recognizable portraits of people of the day. Ghirlandaio seems to have been a born portrait artist. His full name was Domenico di Tommaso Curradi de Daffo Bigardi. Like many Renaissance painters, he began as a goldsmith, learning his trade from his father. His name is a nickname, meaning "garland maker", coming from the gold and silver garlands made in his father's shop and fashionable among Florentine ladies. The boy learned drawing by designing jewelry, and became so facile that, sitting in the shop doorway, he could catch the likenesses of passers-by. He entered the studio of Baldovenetti and became one of the most distinguished mosaicists and painters of his time. His designs were more correct and graceful than had ever been known before. He established a flourishing workshop in Florence with his two younger brothers. He had little inclination for the avant-garde of the day or for the movements we associate with Botticelli (with whom he worked at the Sistine Chapel). It is probable that Michelangelo owed more to the sound craftsmanship of Ghirlandaio, to whom he was apprenticed, than he cared to acknowledge.

Robert Delaunay was born in Paris in 1885, a few years after Braque and Picasso to 1941 Montpelier. This stunning watercolor on paper is of the Eiffel Tower, 37cm by 25.8cm (14.6" by 10.2") signed LL. He was a big blond bright-eyed man, the son of a well-off engineer and so he was not afflicted by the poverty that befell most of his fellow artists. After training as a decorative commercial painter he took up an artistic career in 1904. About 1906 he became interested in Neo-Impressionism and the color theories of Eugene Cheuvrel and embarked upon the research into the aesthetic applications of color which remained the central motive throughout his artistic life. He gave all of his time to painting. Delaunay was lucky in his marriage, too. He met Russian-born Sonia Terk in 1909 and they were married in 1910. She was also a gifted artist and they worked out an unusually harmonious balance between their talents. They started talking art as soon as they woke up. In his worse moments, Delaunay was a crashing bore, capable of empying a room with his theoretical diatribes. It was said that he was, to the last, an only child. Delaunay belonged to no movement. His rainbow-hued paintings shared very little with cubism. He painted the Eiffel Tower over and over again. He made a series of compositions based on brightly banded circles, one of which ""The First Disc"" painted in 1912, is almost certainly the first abstract picture painted in France by a Frenchman. He associated with members of the cubist movement and exhibited with them at the Salon des Independants; also the Blaue Reiter group in Germany. Franz Marc, August Macke and Paul Klee in particular were influenced by his color. The 1914 war caught the Delaunays unaware; they were in Portugal and they stayed there and in Spain until 1920. In so doing, he missed the horrors of the front. Portugese police who saw him painting enormous disks on vast expanses of canvas at his seaside villa near Lisbon suspected him of drawing signals for German submarines. They found that Delaunay's circles were meaningless. For some reason his painting, after he got back to Paris, was never quite to regain the life-affirming energy of his prewar work. From then on his wife became the stronger half of the creative partnership. He died of cancer in 1941 in exile in Montpelier.

Gino Severini was born in Cortona, Italy on 7 April 1883 - Paris February 26, 1966. This gouache on paper is 26cm by 35.4cm ( 10.2" by 13.9" ), signed LR G. Severini. In 1899 the Italian painter, graphic artist and sculptor went to Rome in 1899 to attend evening classes at the Villa Medici. After a decisive encounter with Giacomo Balla and Umberto Boccioni he began working as an artist in 1901. Balla introduced him to the divisionistic colour technique of the Neo-Impressionists*. Gino Severini moved to Paris in 1906 where he studied the Impressionists*, was fascinated with Seurat's paintings and met Signac. Beside Modigliani, Picasso, Braque and Gris he further encountered various well-known poets and thinkers of his time. Marinetti and Boccioni invited him to join the Futurist* movement. On 11 February 1910 Severini signed the 'Manifesto of Futurist Painting' and thus became a co-founder of this style. In contrast to his artist colleagues, Severini was barely interested in the dynamic of machines, but in the depiction of human bodies in motion. His cabaret scenes and depictions of dancers were made during his period. Works such as Blue Dancer (1912) show the typical Futurist principles of faceting and simultaneous effects. Severini exhibited works in 1912 at the Futurist exhibitions in Paris, London and Berlin and developed relationships between Italy and France. The artist's work became Cubist* after 1915. From now on the artist increasingly focused on the harmony of geometric constructions such as the golden section. His favourite subjects were the still lifes with musical instruments and scenes from the Commedia dell' Arte. Between 1924 and 1935 Severini was commissioned with numerous murals and mosaics. He led an exciting life between Rome and Paris and published theoretical texts and books on art. Severini was awarded the Grand Prize of the Venice Biennale* in 1950. The divisionist concept of the picture, together with a Cubist-Futurist style, which was adopted by Balla, is typical of Severini's entire oeuvre*. He analyzed light, movement and events, which happened after one another but are linked by memory. Gino Severini died in Paris on 26 February 1966. Important works by the artist are today exhibited in Milan (Collection Gianni Mattioli) and Rotterdam (Museum Boymans-van-Beuningen).
