Gustave Moreau, Study from the Triumph of Alexander

Gustave Moreau has always been one of the artists I most admire. His drawings that are etched over watercolor create the most beautiful ethereal filigree. Here is a drawing done separate from the painting as a whole. The ornamentalism is one of his superior talents.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
