Posted: September 06, 2012 10:08 Last Updated: | Joseph Ronan Clarke

Cortès had the remarkable ability to portray the essence of Paris in all her moods.

The “Beautiful Age” of Painting: Works of the Belle Époque

Posted: June 15, 2012 13:19 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

The late 19th and early 20th centuries were exciting times to be in France. The end of the Franco-Prussian War provided the catalyst for a period of peace and prosperity known today as the Belle Époque, or Beautiful Age. Changes abounded in nearly every facet of society-from science, philosophy and architecture, to music, literature, and especially, fine art. French artists capitalized on this golden age, using the changes around them as the inspiration to create outstanding masterpieces. French civic planner Geoges-Eugène Haussmann's renovation of Paris (which lasted 1853 to ...

Art is Back - Gee, I Didn't Know It Went Somewhere

Posted: October 14, 2011 21:07 Last Updated: | Heather Karlie Vieira

I heard that the other day.  "Art is back".  It was said so matter of factly that I nodded my head as if to say, "Yes".  But really, where did it go?  Or maybe the question is not where but for whom.  It appears that the New York interior designer crowd are discovering or re-discovering painting.  They are touting the benefits of owning art.  How a painting can complete the room.  And this is pushing sales.   I've always thought that a painting can make the room.  It sets the tone and gives you something to work with in designing the ...

Brush Strokes of a Renaissance Man: The Paintings of Winston Churchill

Posted: August 12, 2011 10:34 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Few figures in Modern history evoke images of leadership, integrity and political prowess as does Winston Churchill.  His iconic speeches and steadfast direction during World War II galvanized the Allied forces in Britain and abroad.

Rau is honored to have two of his historically significant works currently in our Fine Art collection: The Tower of Katoubia Mosque, created and given by Churchill to President Frankl...

Potthast at Sullivan Goss

Edward Potthast Painted California

Posted: April 27, 2009 10:21 Last Updated: | ArtfixDaily Staff

Listen (link below) to Frank Goss of Santa Barbara’s Sullivan Goss Gallery tell of his discovery of a previously unknown Edward Potthast (American, 1857-1927) painting featuring a Spanish Colonial-era California landmark. Potthast is beloved for his impressionist East Coast beach scenes, often depicting children playing on beaches, but California scenes such as this are quite rare for the New York-based artist. The 20 by 24 oil depicting Santa Barbara’s historic mission required a bit of research by the gallery. Historic photographs pointed to Potthast havin...
