Styles & Periods
Purism

Feeling that Cubism had become decorative and lacking in moral order, two artists created Purism. Frenchmen Amédée Ozenfant and Le Corbusier developed the variant of Cubism that advocated a removal of expressionist influences and a return to admiration for the qualities of pure form. Mechanical imagery provided the iconography for much of their paintings. Function, volume and efficiency of form were the greatest concerns of the two artists, and still-lifes were their most commonly painted subjects. From 1920 to 1925 a journal was written to spread their theories. Despite their convictions, the style did not metabolize into a school of painting, and both artists were forced to compromise their vision, and develop into other forms of expression. Ozenfant relaxed his adherence to the tenets of Purism and contributed to color theory in England, as well as running his own art academy, first in London and then New York. Le Corbusier met with great success when he transferred his ideas into the field of design and architecture, but his work in these fields has also drawn him many critics.

This EV-R-Round Circle Cutter is an awesome product. My husband was cutting circles of cork for coasters by hand and they didn't come out really round. Enter the Circle Cutter - perfect circles. Very easy to use and well made. He loves this product!! Wish he would have purchased a long time ago!!

I wish someone had written a review for me. So I am paying it forward! I purchased every single eraser on the market and I did extensive testing!!! I have to say, I found a review too late on You Tube by Owings Art called Eraser review. I highly recommend you watch the video! Don't just take my word for it! I could have saved myself all the hassle, time and money! The Faber-Castell DUST FREE white eraser is hands down the VERY, VERY BEST eraser I have ever used! I love that it does not produce crumbles that need to be brushed away with a drafter's brush. Instead you get neat rolls. This is the best eraser for me because I draw in graphite, colored pencil and compressed charcoal. The latter two are almost impossible to erase completely with any eraser on the market. And the Faber-Castell DUST-Free eraser will not erase them completely, but it does the best job of any eraser out there. Period! I have done my own independent tests on erasers in my sketchbook! I have not found anything that erases graphite, colored pencil or compressed charcoal better. I prefer the DUST FREE on colored pencil because it is much faster than the kneaded eraser, and gives me similar results. In addition, the Faber-Castell DUST FREE erased Prismacolor's col-erase pencils completely! It does the best on Prismacolor's Premier colored pencils too. And it does the best on compressed charcoal. Note, no eraser will get completely eraser colored pencils or compressed charcoal period!!! But this eraser does completely erase the Prismacolor col-erase pencils. (FYI I removed the pink eraser that is on the bottom of the Prismacolor col-erase pencil because it SUCKS!) If you are looking for an eraser for all four mediums graphite, Prismacolor col-erase, Prismacolor Premier colored pencil and compressed charcoal the Faber-Castell DUST FREE eraser beats the pants off the completion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tested Staedler's electric eraser, FACTIS, Pink Pearl, Prismacolor Magic Rub, Prismacolor Art Gum, General's art gum, Prismacolor Kneeded, Alvin Velvet Softie, Staedtler Mars, Pentel Hi-Polymer Clic, papermate Tuff stuff! Note: I now exclusively use only three erasers. The Faber-Castell Dust-free white, Pentel click and Papermate Tuff stuff eraser. I use the later two for fine detailed erasing with my graphite drawings, but they can not erase colored pencil or compressed charcoal as well as my Faber-Castell dust-free!
