Internet Weekly Report - Art And Culture


IWR Art Links For 12/17/2007

Edwin Longsden Long [Bio 1829-1891]
Edwin Longsden Long was a very talented British Orientalist painter.  His female figures are very lovely and his attention to detail is quite astounding.  I think his The Pharaoh's Daughter finding Moses is one of the best Old Testament biblical paintings that I have ever seen.


The Eastern Favorite


Love's Labor Lost
[ ]

Tetsuya Ishida [Bio 1973-2005]
Tetsuya Ishida's surrealist paintings reveal the troubled artist within trapped a cold merciless modern mechanical world.  It is thought that he committed suicide by jumping under a train.  How sad.


Self Portrait In The Classroom
[ ]

Ai Shinohara
Ai Shinohara's surrealist paintings are also a bit on the weird side, but she is a very talented painter and illustrator, indeed.

Xiaoqing Ding (via Blort)

What Do You Care

Hugo Boettinger (via Little Hokum Rag)
Hugo Boettinger is a Czech impressionist painter in the tradition of Renoir.


Jugend (1918)


Drei Badende Mädchen am Bach (1910)
[ ]

On the Wings of a Big Orange Fish
This is an interesting set of images by Lotusgreen with people riding on orange fish.  There are two images I believe by Yoshitoshi and the image below by Suzuki Harunobu has got to be one of the most famous Ukiyo-e images of all time.


Mitate no Kinko by Suzuki Harunobu (18th Century)

Claude Verlinde (via Femme)
Claude Verlinde is a much less depressing surrealist (than those above) in the hybrid style of Paul Delvaux and Hieronymus Bosch.  I love his female figures.


Aphrodite

Hasegawa Yosuke (via PCL)
These are fun.


Lincoln As Dixie Cup
