Paul Huvenne

[Lancelot]

(b ?Poperinghe, 1488; d Bruges, bur March 4, 1581).

South Netherlandish painter, draughtsman, designer, architect, civil engineer, cartographer and engraver. He is said to have trained as a bricklayer, and the trowel he used to add as his housemark next to his monogram lab testifies to this and to his pretensions as an architectural designer. In 1519 he was registered as a master painter in the Bruges Guild of St Luke, where he chose as his speciality painting on canvas. The following year he collaborated with the little-known painter Willem Cornu in designing and executing 12 scenes for the Triumphal Entry of Emperor Charles V into Bruges. From then onwards Blondeel received regular commissions, mainly as a designer and organizer. Records of legal actions show that he was sometimes late with commissions; he took seven years to execute a Last Judgement ordered in 1540 for the council chamber at Blankenberge, and in 1545 the Guild of St Luke summoned him for his failure to supply their guild banner on time. Blondeel was married to Kathelyne, sister of the wood-carver ...

French, 20th – 21st century, female.

Born 1957, in Lille.

Painter. Figure compositions. Designs for carpets, furniture, ceramics and objets d'art.

Marie Ducaté lives and works in Marseilles. Her paintings present male nudes, alone or with others, in interiors or paradisal landscapes. These works disconcert by placing men in poses that in classical iconography are normally associated with the female. They recline languidly within kitsch interiors, with every detail of furnishing meticulously delineated. The effect is consciously heightened by the fact that the scene may comprise elements borrowed from the history of art, such as a Cubist floor or some drapery in the style of the Renaissance. Since ...

Draughtswoman, fabric designer. Designs for carpets, designs (furniture/ceramics/fabrics/jewels).

Charlotte Krause was trained in drawing at Dresden and Munich. In the early 1900s, she was a member of the Dresdener Werkstätten für Handwerkskunst (Dresden Studios). The studios were a very important centre for the creation of decorative art and around the turn of the century they had a significant part to play in the flowering of artistic activity of which the Dresden region was the focus. She also belonged to the Deutsche Werkstätten in Hellerau, near Dresden. She went on to specialise in fabric creation. She lived with her sister Gertrud Krause, a goldsmith, at Hellerau. She exhibited her creations in Dresden. The shape of her objects is determined by functionalism, and the decoration is based on a geometric approach combined with floral decoration and sometimes with animal motifs. Her work, together with that of other artists, was rediscovered thanks to the important Jugendstil exhibition in Dresden in ...
