Another artist I have had an eye out for for years is Edward Poynter (1836-1919), and I managed to find some interesting images I thought I would share with you all. One is a wonderful finished painting and the other is a study the demonstrates how thoroughly artists like Poynter understood anatomy and used that knowledge to make their paintings. No doubt David Hockney fans would claim that this proves that Poynter had an X-ray machine.
Annie Swynnerton (1844-1933) is an artist I have always found interesting, but I rarely found examples of her work and the images were rarely of good quality. Fortunately, I managed to find a couple of good examples and I thought I would share them with you all. Enjoy!
I did some digging for interesting turn of the century (and a little after) artists and came up with a few nice tidbits to share. The Blashfield Angel with The Flaming Sword is a little reminiscient of VonStuck’s painting with the same theme. I have been looking for more Elihu Vedder works for a while and one of them was among my finds…
Here’s a wonderful example of Chasseriau’s work…
Chasseriau’s Andromeda painting was subject to a lot of damage and required a lot of digital restoration (by me) to achieve the kind of image quality below. Want to see how bad it started out?
On the GoodArt list someone commented that some of the figures looked a little like Tamada de Lempicka. I also see some similarities to some William Paxton paintings as well, for example:
I got some very positive comments about my last batch, so here are a few more Chasseriau paintings:
