ANCIENT ENGLISH PAINTING, FAMOUS ENGLISH ARTISTS

Collectors of antique paintings are conservative in their passions. Of greatest interest are the Italian masters of the Renaissance, the old Dutch and German painters, French impressionists and some others. However, often artists from other countries and eras deserve no less attention. Let us look at the paintings of England.

Few would call English painting one of the wealth of the country, and in vain. Among the artists of England are many interesting original masters, whose creations adorn the world’s best art galleries and the richest private collections of art.

However, in wide circles of art lovers, England is undeservedly pushed into the background. Not everyone without a hitch will name at least three English painters. We will try to eliminate this injustice by offering a brief overview of ancient English painting from the moment of its formation into a separate, independent phenomenon of world art.

Imprimature – color tinting (tinting) of the soil or the first layer of the canvas.

Imprimatur is a simple and effective way to create color harmony in a painting. In thin-layer writing, the color of the soil, shining through the layers of paints, combines them in a coloristic sense. So, on soils with warm and hot shades of color it is easier to withstand painting in warm colors, on gray – in silver, on cold – in cold, on dark soil – in dark colors, etc. Imprimaturity facilitates the work of the artist and technologically speeds up the process of painting. The artist can not apply extra paint layers, and this, in turn, gives great strength to the paint layer and improves the safety of the painting. In addition, imprimaturism is a layer that does not allow excessive penetration of oil from paints into the ground, eliminating the phenomenon of excessive drying of oil paints, common in our time.
Sometimes even large planes of the canvas with a pronounced imprimature and texture of the soil do not overlap with other colors, but remain unwritten and enter the picturesque-plastic solution of the picture. Ground color is used to solve contrasts, to achieve realistic transmission of body modeling and light intensity.

“The color of the soil can play a big role in painting, if you use it according to the method of the old masters, that is, give it the opportunity to shine through layers of paints and thus take an active part in the overall effect of painting. Continue reading
