A wonderful painting by the "father of Russian Futurism", David Burliuk. Oil on canvas board, 13 x 13 inches, framed, signed on the lower left. Painted with heavy impasto brushwork. Burliuk studied at the Royal Academy in Munich and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In his most active period he participated in many important avant-garde exhibitions in Kyiv, Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Munich. The appearance of the Futurists, as they called themselves, liked to wear gaudy waistcoats, sometimes painted animals on their faces, and wore wooden spoons in their lapels. Their performances drew packed audiences, scandalized many, but also won many new converts to this new vision of art. Burliuk’s exuberance for life, his creative force, and his celebration of the new left a lasting impact on the history of modernism. His later work reflected the life in rural Russia. This image is an expression of his memories of childhood in Russia at the turn of the century.
This is an original oil on canvas painting by American Marine painter: Edward Moran (1829-1901) The painting is titled on the back of the canvas, A Stiff Breeze off Havre. It is signed and dated lower left, 1892. The canvas measures 19 1/2X24 1/2 inches. It is in a period gilt frame.
It was in Philadelphia around 1845 that Edward apprenticed under James Hamilton and landscape painter Paul Weber; Hamilton guided Moran specifically in the style of marine paintings. In the 1850s Moran began to make a name for himself in the Philadelphia artistic scene; working in the same studio as his younger brother, famous American painter Thomas Moran, Edward received commissions and even completed some lithographic work. In 1862, he traveled to London and became a pupil in the Royal Academy. After moving back to Philadelphia, Moran married Annette Parmentier (his second wife), whom he also apprenticed as a landscape artist in her own right. He then established a studio in New York in 1872, and for some time after 1877 lived in Paris.
One of his more well-known exhibits, titled Land and Sea, showed 75 of his landscape and marine paintings in March 1871; these paintings were later illustrated in a catalogue by the same name. Proceeds from the exhibit, the catalogue, and the sale of another painting (The Relief Ship Entering Havre) were donated by Moran to aid the sufferers of the Franco-Prussian war.

This is a beautiful sundrenched scene by French artist Auguste Bonheur, oil on canvas, 23 1/2 x 31 1/4 inches, c. 1860, signed, in an ornate period frame. Auguste Bonheur was born into the Bonheur family of animal painters; his father, Raymond Bonheur was an art teacher as well as artist and taught painting to both Auguste and his older sister, the renowned animal painter Rosa Bonheur. The Bonheurs kept a small barnyard with sheep, chickens, and a cow, which they would often portray in their paintings. Auguste especially excelled at landscapes, which he depicted with a bright clarity of light and color, often including the farmyard animals in his scenes. Auguste was quite successful in his own time, he exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon as well as at galleries in London and Leeds. In 1861 Theophlie Gaultier wrote,"Auguste Bonheur has dared - and it is great audacity - to unvarnish nature, to take away the smoke and the dirt, to wash off the bitumen sauce with which art ordinarily covers it, and he has painted it as he sees it. His animals have the soft and satin-like skin of well-to-do animals; his foliage, the bright freshness of plants washed by the rain and dried by the sun."

Oil on panel, 11 x 16 inches, cradle backing, signed lower right, in an ornate period gilt frame. A very well regarded artist of the French Realism movement, Emile Lambinet was born in Versailles and studied with Horace Vernet and John Baptiste Camille Corot. Both of these artists greatly influenced Lambinet's mature style of painting, as can be seen in this image, with the exacting details and bright atmosphere of Vernet and the subtle color palette with just a few accents of saturated color of Corot. Lambinet showed his work regularly at the Paris Salon, winning medals in 1843, 1853 and 1857, and in 1867 was made a Chevalier of the Legion de'Honnuer. Today Lambinet's paintings can be found in many museums worldwide, with the largest collection of his work at the Musee Lambinet in the artist's hometown of Versailles.
