Oh my gosh, Nick. what would we do without Kunstler and Troianai. They both bring military history alive!
Starry, starry night
paint your palette blue and gray...
Excellent fave, Rebbeca!
Ah Phyllis! B of Venus is a fave here. All the others are awesome, too. Another artist am enthralled with, whose engravings were painted too, is Hogarth:) Yep, I asked alright lol.
They can go on and on can't they, deecoleworld. I like the Romantic period too. Believe it was Delacroix who painted the one here, Liberty Leading the People. You brought up some artists i'm not all that familiar with, thank you! O Blake a fave, too.
The painting above is a Delacroix painting. The artists you can google them, most of them are French artists. :)
I remember corresponding with you on the Pendergrast library once in a story you wrote, effer. Writing down those paintings' names now, thank you. How cool to hear you saw the M Lisa. Bet Mona followed you around with her eyes!
So many paintings of John the Baptist, many of them superlative works of art. Winslow Homer, a great American painter. And the Birth of Venus is a fave here, too, Seafarer Mama! This going to be really tough choosing a best -whew!
A.P.......Busting in here to ask you to keep your eyes open for the next "Sunshine Times." I thought of you in particular when I tweeted a great article with several B&W photos.."After the War" (WWII). I know you will appreciate them!
Both awesome painters. With the extra spice of different eras. Excellent faves , raymondphilippe. Delacroix was a superstar of the 19th century.
Seurat, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte—1884 featured at the The Chicago institute of Art.. one of my favorites.. not really a war painting but one that encompasses the soul i believe..
Yikes, deleted my first reply to you, VJ Zombie, sorry. Be checking that Seurat painting out for sure, thanks.
