Arrow Who Loves Art

I read this forum 2 or 3 times a day for all the valuable information, but was thinking (always dangerous), that it might be nice to have a thread that is pleasing to the senses.

We could post some of our favourite images. I love Pre-Raphaelite art for instance, and will post this genre.

We could also post some Youtube music.

A positive way to promote healing and relaxation. I started this on my Breast Cancer Forum and everyone really loves it.

Please join me.

I'll start........enjoy!



This will be a sticky thread so we won't have to go searching for it.

Thanks for this uplifting thread! I've always love the Pre-Raphaelites; the paintings are always infused with such light. Here's one of my favorite painters- not to be confused with Monet

The Crystal Ball - John William Waterhouse




Art detective work has uncovered the hidden secret of a 350,000 painting after it was "doctored" in the early 1950s. "The Crystal Ball" by John William Waterhouse RA (1849-1917) shows a young model in a red dress gazing into the ball, apparently weaving a spell with the aid of a book and a skull.

John W. Waterhouse. Ophelia, 1910




This is the last of three paintings on Ophelia; it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1910. John Christian remarks that the painting is stylistically interesting in that "the picture shows how Waterhouse combined Pre-Raphaelite subject matter with a bold impressionistic technique. Most English artists who adopted this method, notably the so-called Newlyn School, rejected the literary themes of the Pre-Raphaelites to paint scenes from modern life. Waterhouse, who knew many of the Newlyn artists, was unusual in attempting to bridge the gulf between the Pre-Raphaelite and realist traditions that divided British art from the 1880's on" (191).

Striking too is how Waterhouse departs from the tradition elaborated over the decades; the girlish Ophelia dressed in a simple gown of virginal white is replaced with a voluptuous, mature young woman in a tailored blue and crimson gown with elegant gold embroidery. Two children in contemporary clothing look undiscerningly from the bridge, unaware that Ophelia presses on towards her fate.

Talking I love art!

I have always loved art. There is something therapeutic about looking at art and engaging in art. I have been working with glass art for the past 3 yrs. It has been the most exciting venture I have had. Here is my latest sculpture. It is about 2 inches tall. It is the first in a series of my funky flower sculptures.

Libra,
Looks beautiful! How long does it take to create some thing like that?
I took a jewelery making class a few years ago, spent at least 5hr to make a bangle! It was so nice to create something that looks beautiful.

Great thread, thanks for starting BlueD!' I love those pictures you posted,
