Claude Monet (1840-1926) is one of the most admired and famous painters of all time, and the architect of Impressionism: a revolution that gave birth to modern art.

His engaging personality, his quirky but always enlightening ideas about art, and his inexhaustible inventiveness both of imagery and of techniques ranging from oil painting to photography to faxes are captured b...

Alena Adamíková Portraits - T. Emmerling, B. Jablonská, V. Polakovič

Alena Adamíková is one of the prominent personalities of contemporary painting. Looking at the art by Alena Adamikova, we can find lines of a stability in her work that are all too rare these days.

This gives her works a certain mystical atmosphere, making her one of the most remarkable contemporary surrealist painters. Nonetheless, in the last 10 years of her work, Alena Adamikova has been reflecting he...
