The Post Impressionism collection of Arkas Holding, which was formed as a result of the long years, meets the audience with the cooperation of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University and Arkas Holding. The artists of the Post Impressionism, which gave the name to the exhibition, were born in 1950-60 in general.
The area on the left side of the entrance includes works by the artist Maurice de Vlaminck, one of the pioneers of the Fovism movement that was active in the period between 1905-1910. The artist, who has not received any academic education, meets with painter Andre Derain, who has taken lessons in famous art galleries and gets acquainted with the Parisian art community, in a train crash and begins painting in this way. The exhibition, which took place in Salon de Automne in 1905, was created with random brush strokes, without perspective, and the academic rules were disregarded. Derain was inspired by Matisse and Gauguin, one of the artists of this movement, and Vlaminck was inspired by Van Gogh. The works of Snow and Harbor in Valmondois in the exhibition are the best representations of these complex brush strokes. Although some of his works differ from style and color, the common point of all works is that he took his inspiration from the nature.
The symbol of the exhibition banner, The Women with Hat, is a painting that is inspired by the Middle Age stained glass and Japanese Ukiyo-e paintings that do not give perspective and shading, which is another art movement of the 1900s. a work of art.Right next to the woman is another woman by the water. The figure in the book named iye Woman in the Hat li is depicted as a woman with a red umbrella turned to her while she is in a cart surrounded with a knife. The reflection on the water is random, made without much effort. The fact that each of the elements in the landscape has very clear lines shows that this work is more suitable to the description of this current than in the more distributed style in the work called.
One of the representatives of the same movement, Suzanne Valadon’s Table of Flowers at the Round Table and Madame Robert and Her Daughter Slyvie are now attracting attention with their vibrant and warm colors. When we carefully examine the two pictures away from detail, we notice that there are some parts that are carelessly made like the hands of the mother figure surrounded by the girl’s waist.
Eduard Vuillard’s internally described compositions can be said as the common point of the works of Mrs. Gillou’s Home and Reading Time in the Dining Room, the use of dark tones, the importance given to decorative elements and the depiction of a moment in life. Two brushstrokes created by freehand brushstrokes, including the portrait-style Andre Gide’s Portrait, created by the painter Sickert and his Mother Jaques Emile Blanche and more regular brushstrokes right next to him, are unpredictably different styles. two works made.
In the creation of the paintings, instead of transferring the paints on the canvas like the Impressionists, instead of transferring the paints on the canvas, many works belonging to the Pointillism trend which puts the contrast main colors or different shades of one color in equal dimensions on the canvas are also in the exhibition. Henri Martin’s side-by-side pool, the first version and the auto portrait on the side of the two side of the work of the figures facing the viewer looking at the faces of an icy glass is looking after the feeling. Although the same artist’s vivid figures in the green tones are depicted as single vivid figures, it is obvious that the actor is nature.
Frits Thaulow’s Montreil sur-Mer Mills was next to Henri Martin’s portrait. The work can be described as a beautiful composition with a perspective, light shades of shades that are extremely beautiful, with soft colors that add a taste to the soul of the person, which contains a story. Next to it, there are 2 works on Ravageurs Island and Bahçede which are focused on a single figure in dense green tones. The artist transfers the green to the canvas with extremely brushed strokes.
Another work in the same area is the Neptune Pool Versailles. Almost all of the figures have been turned into a pool in front of them.
Leon de Smet describes two women in a room. The intense use of the red color in the picture prevents us from examining the picture at length. The theme and colors of this painting are reminiscent of Matisse’s The Red Room (1908). Perhaps in 1913, the artist was influenced by the Red Room of Matisse.
At the end of the exhibition area, the wall on the left side of the exhibition suggests that Renoir is the most valuable part of the exhibition, with its classical and golden-colored frame, which is sheltered in a glass.
At the exhibition, there are three paintings gathered around Paul Signac’s Flower Vase, Achille Laugé’s Apple and Orange Still Life and still-life painting theme called Jeanne in front of the Great Still Life of Henri Charles Manguin. While the works of Signac and Laugé are similar in style, Manguin’s work differs in this sense. Manguin’s 1901 work, like Leon de Smet, had many similarities with Matisse’s Red Room. The fact that Manguin’s work was earlier than Matisse suggests that Matisse might have been influenced by an artist.
The collection, which will be exhibited in Istanbul until November 6, will meet with its audience at Arkas Museum in Izmir.
