Artist: William Walcot (1874-1943)

Born in Odessa to a Russo-Scottish family, William Walcot grew up in Western Europe and South Africa until the age of 17, returning to St. Petersburg where he studied at the Academy of Art under Leon Benois. He was an architect, graphic designer and engraver, becoming one of the main exponents of Art Nouveau in Moscow; in particular his Keystone Lady's Head has become one of the symbols of the modern Russian style. His pictorial production, made in oil or watercolor, includes glimpses and views of the cities he lived, often animated by figures.

Artistic technique: Pittura

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
