What are those fabulous hats called that are tall and pointy? I love the head gear from this era.
Both lovely, but I epsecially love the top image. It is exquisite! The lighting, the detail, the muted but rich colors..all perfect :-)
Those are called henins. Spectacular but probably not too practical:)
Ro, he also has one portrait of a woman in profile with peacock feathers:)
Wow...the lighting in the first shot makes it look quite photorealistic...I had to look twice to make sure it wasn't a gorgeously styled photo!In which case, we would both have to steal their headgear ;)
His style is so varied between these two paintings, but both rather PRB influenced.Yes, to stealing the headpieces.
These are just beautiful. Thanks for posting them!
so beautiful, i had not come across him before. the bottom painting is breathtaking, i love it. thank you!
Margaret & Ruthie. I wasn't familiar with this artist either and found the bottom image in a book on Celtic Mythology. Glad you enjoyed them as much as I did the discovery:)
Thank you for sharing these, I'm not familiar with this artist either.
Hi Cat, and welcome. This artist was a very pleasant surprise for me too.
They top one looks so real. I love it!
Beautiful. I especially love the first two nunsand their exquisite gowns.
These are both beautiful paintings, I'm another who hasn't come across his work before. You can see the PRB influence especially in the second one but I think the first is my favourite, there is something very tranquil about it, I feel I could sit and just look at it for a long time.
