Viggo Thorvald Edvard Weie (1879-1943) was a Danish painter. His style was influenced by journeys to Italy (1907) and Paris (1912) where he came into contact with French impressionists such as Cézanne.
After returning to Denmark in 1912, he spent a period on the tiny island of Christiansø near Bornholm. He was one of the earliest participants in the Bornholm school of painters, contributing to landscapes and seascapes in a distinctive modernistic style.
The greys of his earlier work soon gave way to brighter colours in his dramatic cubist compositions combining sea, rocks and figures, several including Poseidon, with violent brushstrokes. In his later work, the strokes can hardly be seen and his paintings seem to be characterised by mystic dreams. Finally he experimented with richer, glowing colours and lighter brushwork.

George Hendrik Breitner (Rotterdam, September 12, 1857 - Amsterdam, June
5, 1923) was a Dutch painter, famous for his view of Amsterdam city
life. His work is related to that of the 'Eighties', a group of artists
with great influence on the Dutch art world during the eighties of the
nineteenth century. Painters like Isaac Israels, Willem Witsen, and
poets like Willem Kloos and Louis of Deyssel belonged to his circle.

Joseph Pennell (July 4, 1857 – April 23, 1926) was an American artist and author.
Born in Philadelphia, and first studied there, but like his compatriot and friend, James McNeill Whistler, he afterwards went to Europe and made his home in London. He produced numerous books (many of them in collaboration with his wife, Elizabeth Robins Pennell), but his chief distinction is as an original etcher and lithographer, and notably as an illustrator. Their close acquaintance with Whistler led the Pennells to undertake a biography of that artist in 1906, and, after some litigation with his executrix on the right to use his letters, the book was published in 1908.
He taught at Slade School of Art. He won a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle (1900), and 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition.

Kazimir Severinovich Malevich (23 February 1879 – 15 May 1935) was a Russian painter and art theoretician. He was a pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde, Suprematist movement.
In 1915, Malevich laid down the foundations of Suprematism when he published his manifesto, "From Cubism to Suprematism". In 1915–1916 he worked with other Suprematist artists in a peasant/artisan co-operative in Skoptsi and Verbovka village. In 1916–1917 he participated in exhibitions of the Jack of Diamonds group in Moscow together with Nathan Altman, David Burliuk, Aleksandra Ekster and others. Famous examples of his Suprematist works include Black Square (1915) and White On White (1918).
