Edwin Longsden Long [Bio
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
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'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's surrealist paintings are also a bit on the weird side, but she is
talented painter and illustrator, indeed.

Hugo Boettinger is a Czech impressionist painter in the tradition of Renoir.
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 is a much less depressing surrealist (than those above) in the hybrid style of Paul Delvaux and Hieronymus Bosch. I love his female figures.
These are fun.
