    Pieter Bruegel (c.1525–1565) was a Flemish painter during the Northern European Renaissance. His subjects were humanistic, detailed scenes of people doing ordinary tasks. At times, he included humorous observations of human nature. Much of his art told stories with moral implications. Some of his most beautiful landscapes are from a series about the changing seasons. There are winter scenes in this series very fitting for our January in the Midwest.

    Art Nouveau is a style of art, architecture and applied art popular between 1890-1910 as a partial reaction to the academic art of the 19th century. It was inspired by natural forms and structures, especially the curved lines of plants and flowers. Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926) of Spain and Hector Guimard (1867–1942) of France created outstanding examples of this style in buildings, doorways, subway entrances and furniture.

    Ernst Barlach (1870–1938) was a Jewish, German, expressionist sculptor, printmaker, author and radio broadcaster. He used his art, writing and voice to protest the oppression of Hitler and the Nazis. Some of his sculptures are anti-war creations and some show the influence of simple Russian peasants. Barlach’s personal story of survival in Nazi Germany is interesting and his art is strong and worthy!

    Kathe Kollwitz (1867–1945) was a German expressionist artist who worked in sculpture, painting and printmaking in an art world dominated by men. Her compassionate art vision centered on women and the working class. She was concerned with the effects of poverty, grief, war and suffering of all kinds on people. She created about 50 self-portraits. Her woodcuts are especially famous. As with most expressionists, her personal story is important to understand her art.
