Artist Elihu Vedder: One of the greatest "symbolist painters"

Via: www.artcyclopedia.com


Elihu Vedder (February 26, 1836 – January 29, 1923)

I make it a point to study the work of many artists, and eventhough I am a novice in the field of art and design I couldn't help but be in awe of the featured artist I'm blogging about today...Elihu Vedder.

An American symbolist painter, book illustrator, born in New York City.

He is best known for his fifty-five illustrations for Edward FitzGerald's translation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, which is considered a marvelous and masterful piece of work. It is said that he was influenced by the work of English and Irish mystics such as William Blake and William Butler Yeats. Vedder was trained under masters like Tompkins H. Matteson in New York, then in Paris with François-Édouard Picot. Finally, he completed his studies in Italy - where he was strongly influenced not only by Italian Renaissance work but also by the modern Macchiaioli painters and the living Italian landscape.

Tiffany and Co commissioned him to design glassware, mosaics and statuettes for the company. He decorated the hallway of the Reading Room of the Washington Library of Congress, and his mural paintings can still be seen there. In 2008, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington organized an exhibition of Vedder's Rubaiyat illustrations that toured several museums, invluding the Phoenix Art Museum.

If you get a chance to see the original arts they will blow you away ... no construction lines. Seeing them in person was like Manna.
