Hokusai-Originally titled Under the Wave off Kanagawa, The Great Wave was the first woodblock print in a series Katsushika Hokusai called 36 Views of Mt. Fuji. Perhaps mistaken for a tsunami, the large rogue wave features menacing white claw- like tips and the use of imported Prussian blue ink. With Mt. Fuji in the distance, the tension-filled wave ascends above the sailors in their long, narrow boats in what is considered a compositional masterpiece.
Klimt-The Kiss-A man obsessively devoted to his craft, Gustav Klimt’s paintings are evidence that he was inspired by many things. In a style uniquely his own, he deliberately and proudly merged what inspired him onto the canvas.
Mondrian-Composition A -Known as the father of abstract art, Piet Mondrian is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He pioneered a new style of art that not only remains popular today, but also inspired creators of fashion, music, graphics, and architecture. His original paintings are on display in world-class galleries throughout Europe and the U.S.
Monet-The Japanese Footbridge-From building his own Japanese-style bridge in the French countryside and painting his pond garden over 250 times, to an unusual urge to capture the fleeting effects of light and color, Claude Monet was an inspired man. He was compelled to depart from classical painting methods by quickly dabbing paint onto the canvas in order to document how the natural world looked in that unique moment of time.
