Utrillo, Maurice (1883-1955) - 1938-39 Vase of Flowers (Tate Gallery, London)
Utrillo, Maurice (1883-1955) - 1938-39 Vase of Flowers (Tate Gallery, London)
Oil on canvas; 24.1 x 19.0 cm. Maurice Utrillo was a French painter who was noted for his depictions of the houses and streets of the Montmartre district of Paris. Born out of wedlock, Utrillo was the son of the model and artist Suzanne Valadon. His father was not known, and he was given his name by a Spanish art critic, Miguel Utrillo. He had no instruction as an artist apart from that given by his mother, who herself was untutored. When, as an adolescent, he became an alcoholic, his mother encouraged him to take up painting as therapy. Despite his frequent relapses into alcoholism, painting became Utrillo’s obsession. Shy and withdrawn, Utrillo painted very few portraits. He usually portrayed—often using picture postcards as sources—the deteriorating houses and streets of Montmartre, its old windmills, and its cafes and places of amusement. He was also inspired by trips to Brittany and Corsica. In heavy, rich pigment, he depicted aging, cracked walls, sometimes covered in inscriptions. These works brought him fame and financial success. In 1924, to keep her son permanently away from the bars of Montmartre, Valadon moved with him to a chateau near Lyon, France. Utrillo was made a chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1928. In 1935 he married Lucie Pauwels, a widow who was herself an amateur painter, and they settled in Le Vesinet, a fashionable suburb of Paris. In his later years, his painting declined sharply in originality and vigor. Utrillo was notably prolific; he produced thousands of oil paintings. First-rate paintings by Utrillo are few, but critics have linked him as a landscapist with such 18th- and 19th-century masters as Francesco Guardi, Hubert Robert, and Camille Corot. Unfortunately, countless crude forgeries have interfered with his good reputation.

Sluijters, Jan (1881-1941) - 1909 Vase with Flowers (Private Collection)
Dutch painter and draughtsman. His first artistic training was in ’s Hertogenbosch (1893–4), where his father was a wood-engraver. In 1894 his family moved to Amsterdam, the city where Jan Sluijters spent the rest of his life. After taking his art teacher’s certificate he went to the Rijksacademie. In 1904 he won the Prix de Rome. Visiting Paris in 1906, he became fascinated by modern art. Sluijters’s confrontation with the work of Neo-Impressionists, Fauvists and such painters as Toulouse-Lautrec and Kees van Dongen resulted in sensational and dynamically modern work and made him a pioneer of modernism in the Netherlands. He assimilated the French influences into a divisionist style, characterized by an expressive use of bright dots, lines and blocks of color. The application of this technique, particularly in landscape paintings such as October Sun, shows how strongly he admired the later work of Vincent van Gogh. It was this form of divisionism, of which the chief representatives were Sluijters, Piet Mondrian and Leo Gestel, that brought about the breakthrough for Amsterdam’s avant-garde painters in 1909 and that paved the way generally for the development of modern art in the Netherlands. The new French color was used in even more concentrated form in a number of figure paintings from 1911, made up of larger planes with clearly defined outlines, for example Woman Reading.
