ARTISTS


Artists see the world
differently from you and I
Viewing the invisible /
layering it between sheets
of our everyday reality

No wonder so many of them
go mad
living as they must / each
being the single thread
in a tapestry whose
entire scheme is laid bare
in the midst of a
million other threads who
can never hope to
begin to comprehend it

That in itself
is absolute madness!

five times removed.





 
Toulouse-Lautrec, the French Painter, was born in 1864
in the town of Albi, in Southern France. He was the heir
of Comte Alphonse-Charles de Toulouse, and the last
in the line of a very long, aristocratic famil. He lived a
childhood filled with every known pleasure.and privledge.
But he was a very sickly child and had to remain home
most of the time. At ten he spent most of his time drawing
and painting. While still a boy, he broke both of his legs,
and they never healed properly, which resulted in his being
a dwarf. His height as an adult was only four and a half feet
tall. Because of this he was never really accepted by his
family's social circle. Searching for a place to live, where
his physical difference wouldn't be cause for stares and
embarassment, he decided to live in the Montmartre
section of Paris, the center of the bohemian life that he
loved to depict in his art. In Montmartre he was quite
popular with the local women, and prostitutes, both
of whom enjoyed posing for his famous nude paintings,
and providing him with other services as well. His
favorite pictures to paint were of the Paris dance halls,
night clubs, cabarets, circuses, and life in the brothels,
where he spent so much of his time, drinking to excess
and partying late into the night. Too much of this
lifestyle can prove detrimental to one's health and did
so in Toulouse's case. He became an alcoholic, and
contracted syphilis which many believe was the cause
of his early death. In 1899 he suffered a complete
breakdown, both mental and physical, and was confined
to a sanatarium. He later returned to his mothers home,
but never recovered his health, and died there in 1901,
at the young age of only 36 years.

James Kenneth Ralston was born in Choteau,
Montana in 1896. Even as an old man in his 90's,
he still wore his cowboy hat, string tie, the cowboy
items he had worn throughout his life, and which
he felt at home in. His was a pioneer family,
travelling by ox team from Missouri to Colorado
then on to Idaho, before finally settling in and in
the Montana Territory. Growing up on the open
plain, J.K. was among cowboys and their ways
since childhood. He loved everything about living
life on the open range, and wanted to capture it
all in his sketches and paintings. J.K. was
sketching pictures before he even attended
elementary school. He loved to draw buffalo,
and Indians on horseback. As a teen he herded
horses, and later worked for cattle companies.
He attended the Chicago Art Institute, then WWI
happened and he joined the Army. He was assigned
to the 8th Division Infantry and served in France.
After the war he returned home to his beloved
rugged Montana range. When he was able to he
returned to the Chicago Art Institute where
he remained for two years. Then he was off to his
last Cattle drive. He left for California where he
worked as a commercial artist, but when he father
became ill in 1930, he returned home to help out.
In the 1930's he became well known in Montana
for his massive mural in the Billings, MT airport
that showed 1913's first successful plane flight
there and for his mural, "After the Battle," which
depicts the aftermath of the Battle of the Little
Bighorn. His painting, "Into the Unknown," shows
dozens of Indians with members of the Lewis and
Clark Expedition along with their canoes, household
items and a pole-and-hide shelter as Ralston
depicted the corps leaving a Shoshone village at the
Beaverhead River to head over the Divide. Ralston
also portrays the pioneer spirit of all those who
settled the West, showing them alongside their oxen
as covered wagons are pulled across the prairies.
He is especially known for his acute attention to
detail. His paintings tell the story of how America's
West was settled. He also told of the Western
experience through his poetry in a book of poetry
titled; "Rhymes of a Cowboy" . And in his later
years he, with the help of his friend, John Popovich,
wrote his life story and published it in a book titled;
"The Voice of the Curlew". He is considered to
be one of "The Three R's" at the top of Western
art, along with William Remington and Charles
M. Russell. In 1978 J.K. was elected to the Hall of
Fame of Great Westerners at Oklahoma City's
National Cowboy Hall of Fame.
