    On The Sands

    This is a portrait done in the 1920s by a English artist, Harold Harvey, in the Cornish town of St Ives, which was much favoured by the European Impressionists.When I was 15 I spent the first week of my summer holiday in St Ives with my friend Sophie and her family. We went...

    Not The Usual David Story

    So, there is a certain work carved of Carrara marble by a man in his late-20s, just over 500 years ago.  It has been visited by tens of millions and studied by hundreds of millions.  Many reading this story have seen and studied it, so I won't go into the details.  This is a...

    La Belle Sans Merci

    I have always loved this painting by Sir Frank Dicksee ....May be it is the way the knight is looking up at his lady transfixed on her .. or the way her red hair is sheilding the side of her face , making her even more mysterious ... I think the colors also , and the dreamy...

    Praxiteles, My Eyes

    I'll never set eyes upon her. No one will.  A riot that led to the burning of most of Constantinople almost 1,500 years ago consumed her fully.  She was already almost 900 years old at that time, and a marvel that drew adventurers and lovers of beauty from all over the...

    Xipe Totec

    On a rainy summer day spent at Chicago's Art Institute eight years ago, I happened across this painted ceramic object created by an artist's hands between the years 1450 and 1500.  Looking through the thick glass case, where he stood all by himself, I knew instantly who he was...

    A Girl With A Broom

    Although not in motion, “A Girl with a Broom” is at once both solidly planted and emerging from the darkness toward the viewer. There is a gentle innocence in her face, but also the hardness of a childhood at labor and without time for demonstrations of affection or other...

    Art that speaks to me tends to have been produced before 1930.  There are exceptions, and I have an EP friend to thank for opening my eyes.  "The Floor" is a 2006 work by pop surrealist Judith Schaechter working in glass.  In many of her works, the central figures are in a...

    I have never managed to find out who painted this. All I know is that he (she?) was from the Romantic movement, possibly French. I often think this is what Mary and Jesus would have looked like (that's right people, Jesus was born in Palestine... so he and his family looked...
