Adolphe Etienne Piot (1850-1910)

As a genre painter, or rather a painter of the female face, Piot had few equals.

His idealized depiction of women and girls are full of sentimentality yet possess a technical skill that is of the highest level.
Adolphe Piot was born in Dijon in 1850. He must have travelled to Paris as a young man

as he is listed as a student of Leon Cogniet, at his Paris atelier, in the late 1870’s.

Cogniet instilled within the young artist a love for the human form and certainly his teachings were not wasted.

Piot’s debut at the Paris Salon came in 1880 followed three years later with his first showing at the Societaire des Artistes Francais.

An honorable mention was given for his exhibit of 1890 at the Salon.

Meine Mutter


Wisst ihr, was es heißt, ein Kind, ein armes Kind zu sein, schwach, nackt, hungrig, elend,

allein auf der Welt, um zu fühlen, dass ihr um euch, dicht an euch, über euch ein Wesen habt,

das geht, wenn ihr geht, stehen bleibt, wenn ihr stehen bleibt,

lächelt, wenn ihr weint,

– ein Weib – o nein, man weiß ja noch gar nicht, was ein Weib ist,

– einen Engel um euch, der euch anblickt, der euch sprechen lehrt, lachen,

– lieben; der eure Finger in seinen Händen wärmt, euren Leib in seinem Schoß,

eure Seele in seinem Herzen; der euch, wenn ihr klein seid,

seine Milch gibt, wenn ihr groß, sein eignes Brot, sein Leben jederzeit;

– zu dem ihr sagt: "Meine Mutter!"

Das zu euch spricht: "Mein Kind!"

– und mit so süßem Klange, dass diese Worte Gott entzücken.

~Victor Marie Hugo, (1802 – 1885),

französischer Lyriker, Romantiker und Maler~

Spanish Painter Cayetano De Arquer-Buigas (1932)


Reint Withaar,

Reint Withaar

The South of France and his native Holland are an eternal source for Reint Withaar’s depictions of idyllic country scenes and landscapes.

The artist recreates the beauty of nature in his incomparable style, combined with a longing for a peaceful, ideal world.

Reint Withaar was born in Amsterdam in 1928 and already at the age of 5 was taught how to paint and draw by his father who was an artist himself.

Reint Withaar’s work could already be seen at art shows in all of Europe as well as in the U.S. and Canada.
