Art Links For 06/11/2007
This is an interesting collection of book binding covers from 1815 to 1930
organized in categories, e.g.,
Louisa May Alcott
You're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but if I saw either of
the two books below, I'd buy them just for the cover art!
Daughters of Nijo (1904)
by Onoto Wantanna
Lulu's Library (1886)
by Louisa May Alcott
This site has a remarkable collection of memorabilia from the 1936 movie Things
to Come, which was written by H. G. Wells. I like the
Galleries best. Lot's large scans.
La Vida Futura
Things To Come
This photographer is very talented indeed. His
Shanghai Tang calendar shots really capture the style of those beautiful
old Art Deco posters from Shanghai.
Shanghai Tang Miss January (2006)
Marie-Guillemine Benoist's Beautiful Portrait
This is a fascinating and tantalizing painting by French neoclassical artist
Benoist. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be many of her
images available on the Internet. I also liked Amy Crehore's painting
The Cat's Passenger used the image from the Portrait d'une négresse (below) riding on a big
Portrait d'une négresse (1800)
Eve Overlooking The Garden
This is an interesting collection of poetry and images by Lotusgreen.
Mums by Kunisada?
I like these are pretty zany and imaginative illustrations and paintings
from the Netherlands. However,
Lucky the Cat is a little too weird even for me! ;-)
