Welcome

Welcome to this blog, which is primarily devoted to art: short analyses or reflections on works which will include a range of genres and periods from German Expressionism, Symbolism, Pre-Raphaelites, Post-Modernism, Fauvism, Saatchi artists, Romanticism, Medieval, Classical, Austrian art, Dutch Golden Age, and whatever else. Some movements I know better than others and I am using this blog to further explore individual works and movements.

Again, that’s a lot of mail. Back in the day, women were used to sell or show anything, cigarettes, cars, washing machines… despite feminists’ opposition to this, there is an undeniable glamour to the advertisements of the past.

Great shot by Stanley Kubrick early in his career for Look Magazine. Kubrick was a photographer before a film maker and his amazing visual sense for framing each scene is evident in his early shoots.
