Julius Kaplan

(b nr Termonde, Sept 12, 1858; d Brussels, Nov 12, 1921).

Belgian painter, illustrator, sculptor, designer, photographer and writer. He was one of the foremost Symbolist artists and active supporters of avant-garde art in late 19th-century Belgium. His wealthy family lived in Bruges from 1859 to 1864, moved to Brussels in 1865, where Khnopff remained until his death, and spent their summers at a country home in Fosset, in the Ardennes. Fosset inspired numerous landscapes that owe a strong debt to Barbizon-style realism (see 1979 cat. rais., p. 210), which dominated advanced Belgian painting in the late 1870s. Khnopff abandoned law school in 1875, and, turning to literature and art, he studied with Xavier Mellery at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. During visits to Paris (1877–80) he admired the work of Ingres and was especially attracted to the painterly art of Rubens, Rembrandt, the Venetian Renaissance and particularly Delacroix. At the Exposition Universelle of 1878 in Paris he discovered Gustave Moreau and Edward Burne-Jones, both of whom indelibly influenced his art. He studied with ...

Boston School.

Jack Pierson studied at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, obtaining a BFA in 1984. He is known as a member of the Boston School, which was a group of photographers including artists like Nan Goldin and David Armstrong. The group were based in Boston in the early 1980s and their photography focused on their mutual friends in intimate or casual settings. Pierson lives and works in New York City and in southern California, but travels frequently to Las Vegas and Provincetown, Massachusetts. He has worked as a photographer for Vogue magazine and has also photographed notable models and celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Brad Pitt, Naomi Campbell, and Michael Bergin.

His work demonstrates a shift away from Pop, impersonal appropriation, and anonymous imagery, to a more intimate expression of self and the evocation of emotional response from his viewers. His work is varied, ranging from photographic portraits, ‘word pieces’, neon sculptures, and installations, to books, drawings, and collage. In his photography, he often used over-exposure and colour saturation, particularly in his early works. His art tells stories of everyday life, with common themes of loneliness, social and urban isolation, male intimacy, gender ambiguity, eroticism of desire, and transience....
