Kieron Williamson is a seven-year-old watercolor artist born in Norfolk, England. Kieron lives with his father, Keith, a former electrician, his mother, a nutritionist and his younger sister, Billie-Jo. He is described as a prodigy because he sold his latest collection of paintings for £150,000 with all 33 works sold in just 30 minutes. It can be seen that his paintings are inspired from Norfolk landscapes or coastal scenes, but the latest exhibition also consists of London and Hongkong sceneries.


Starting drawing in May 2007, his talent was recognized on the first family holiday in Devon and Cornwall at the age of five. Kieron attended a nine-week watercolor class, three two-hour oil lessons and several sessions with inks and acrylics. Although Mr. and Mrs. Williamson are not good at drawing, they attempt to support their son’s talent. They plan to buy Kieron a house as a rest for him until he is 25 by his own earnings. Mr. Williamson shared his thought: “He is improving all the time. He learns really quickly and just gets better and better. He paints because he likes doing it and he does it whenever he wants”. Nicknamed Mini Monet, Kieron Williamson surprised many people when they had chances to witness how he drew the coastal scene in Salthouse, near Holt, England.

The sky is now full of grey clouds and light blue is used to show the sun shining


In the next step, the sky looks clearer. Reeds are painted with green and yellow

10. Adele Bloch-Bauer II: .5 million

Adele Bloch-Bauer II is a 1912 painting by Gustav Klimt. Adele Bloch-Bauer was the wife of Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, who was a wealthy industrialist who sponsored the arts and supported Gustav Klimt. Adele Bloch-Bauer was the only model to be painted twice by Klimt; she also appeared in the much more famous Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. Both portraits of Adele Bloch-Bauer were part of a protracted court battle in the United States and in Austria (see Republic of Austria v. Altmann) which resulted in five Gustav Klimt paintings being returned to Maria Altmann, the niece of Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer, in January 2006. In November 2006, Christie’s auction house sold “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II” at auction for million, the third-highest priced piece of art at auction at the time.

9. Irises: 1.2 million

Irises is a painting by the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. Irises was painted while Vincent van Gogh was living at the asylum at Saint Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France, in the last year before his death in 1890.  It was painted before his first attack at the asylum. There is a lack of the high tension which is seen in his later works. He called the painting “the lightning conductor for my illness”, because he felt that he could keep himself from going insane by continuing to paint.

8. Dora Maar au Chat: 1.9 million

Dora Maar au Chat (Dora Maar with Cat) is a 1941 painting by Pablo Picasso. It depicts Dora Maar, the painter’s lover, seated on a chair with a small cat perched on her shoulders. This painting is one of the world’s most expensive paintings. Dora Maar au Chat presents the artist’s most mysterious and challenging mistress regally posed three-quarter length in a large wooden chair with a small black cat perched behind her in both an amusing and menacing attitude. The faceted planes of her body and richly layered surface of brushstrokes impart a monumental and sculptural quality to this portrait. The painting is also remarkable for its brilliance of colour and the complex and dense patterning of the model’s dress. The powerful figure is set in a dramatic, yet simple setting composed of a vertiginously inclined plane of wooden floorboards and shallow interior space that is arranged in a manner reminiscent of Picasso’s earliest manipulations of space in a cubist manner.

7. Portrait of Joseph Roulin: 2 million

6. Garçon à la pipe: 9.4 million

Garçon à la Pipe (Boy with a Pipe) is a painting by Pablo Picasso. It was painted in 1905 when Picasso was 24 years old, during his Rose Period, soon after he settled in the Montmartre section of Paris, France. The oil on canvas painting depicts a Parisian boy holding a pipe in his left hand and wearing a garland or wreath of flowers. Le Bateau-Lavoir in Montmartre is where Picasso was living when he painted the picture. Some of the local people made a living in the entertainment industry, such as being clowns or acrobats. Picasso used many local people in his pictures, but much is unknown about the boy in the picture.

4. Portrait of Dr. Gachet: 8.4 million

Portrait of Dr. Gachet is one of the most revered paintings by Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh of Dr. Paul Gachet, who took care of him in his last months. In 1990, it fetched a record price of .5 million ( million, plus a 10 percent buyer’s commission).  There are two authentic versions of the portrait, both painted in June 1890 in Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris. Both show Doctor Gachet sitting at a table and leaning his head onto his right arm, but they are easily differentiated.

3. Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I: 4.2 million

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I is a painting by Gustav Klimt completed in 1907. According to press reports it was sold for US5 million to Ronald Lauder for his Neue Galerie in New York City in June 2006, which made it at that time the most expensive painting ever sold. It has been on display at the gallery since July 2006. Klimt took three years to complete the painting. It measures 138 x 138 cm and is made of oil and gold on canvas, showing elaborate and complex ornamentation as seen in the Jugendstil style. Klimt was a member of the Vienna Secession, a group of artists that broke away from the traditional way of painting. The picture was painted in Vienna and commissioned by Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer. As a wealthy industrialist who had made his fortune in the sugar industry, he sponsored the arts and favored and supported Gustav Klimt.

2. Woman III: 7.9 million

Woman III is a painting by abstract expressionist painter Willem de Kooning.

1. No. 5, 1948: 0.6 million

No. 5, 1948 is a painting by Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956), an American painter known for his contributions to the abstract expressionist movement. The painting was done on an 8′ x 4′ sheet of fiberboard, with thick amounts of brown and yellow paint drizzled on top of it, forming a nest-like appearance. It was originally owned by Samuel Irving Newhouse and displayed at the Museum of Modern Art before being sold to David Geffen and then allegedly to David Martinez in 2006 (though the supposed sale of this painting to Martinez has been denied by his attorneys).

Naples, FL (PRWEB) April 28, 2006

Andrew Wyeth finally breaks his silence – talking at length about his famous Helga paintings in an exclusive interview with Thomas Hoving, art scholar and former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The interview is being published in a new monograph, “Wyeth on Helga,” available now from the Naples Museum of Art.

Since they were first shown at Washington’s National Gallery of Art two decades ago, “The Helga Pictures” have been the subject of considerable interest, debate and gossip. But Wyeth himself has never talked at length on the subject – with one exception. In 2002, Wyeth sat down with Thomas Hoving and discussed the origins and evolution of the Helga series. In the spring of 2006, Hoving agreed to allow the Naples Museum of Art to publish this interview for the first time, as a companion to the exhibition “Andrew Wyeth & Family.”

Secretly created over a 15-year period, the 240 works that make up “The Helga Pictures” provide an intimate, unprecedented look at a major American artist exploring a single subject, Wyeth’s Pennsylvania neighbor Helga Testorf.

In this candid interview, Wyeth reveals how he met Helga, how the series – and his relationship with Helga – grew and the fact that he never intended to show these works publicly. “My intention was to keep ‘em hidden away until I died,” he says. “Then they could be revealed.”

“Wyeth on Helga” is an important addition to the literature on Andrew Wyeth and to the literature on American art.
