My Woodblock Prints
I've recently picked a couple of woodblock prints on eBay from the Robert Mueller collection.  I only wish I could afford to be the originals, but these 70 year old prints are the next best thing.


Wife of Dembi by Utamaro


Koshigaya in Musashi Province
Series; Thirty-Six Views of Fuji by Hiroshige

Les Maîtres de l'Affiche
Masters of the poster was a monthly publication containing the reproduction of the "most beautiful illustrated posters of the major artists of the period that was published by Chaix Printing Works from 1896 to 1900.  I know I've posted turn of the century posters before from the NYPL, but this is a special published set.  Here are a couple of posters that I thought were outstanding.


Paul Berthon

William Merritt Chase [Bio 1849-1916] Wikimedia
The America impressionist painter William Merritt Chase was also a mentor of my favorite American artist Edward Hooper.  Chase was very prolific and like Van Gogh was also influenced by Japanese artwork.  Here are two images that I caught my eye today.  What's your favorite Chase painting?


Portrait of a Lady (1890)


The Model (1987-88)

Ichiyusai Hiroshige - Wikimedia, UK Site and Visipix [Bio 1797-1858]
The more I look at Hiroshige's woodblock prints the more enchanted I become.  Today while browsing through images on Wikimedia, I noticed the wonderful print below, which I had not seen or noticed before.  The beauty of this artwork has totally captivated me for moment at least.  I can see how an artist like Van Gogh was impressed by Hiroshige's colors and designs in the 19th century, because Hiroshige's images are still just as powerful today as they were 150 years ago if not even more so!


The Moon Over A Waterfall (1858)

Lo and Behold: Amy Crehore's "Literartistry" Paintings
It's good to see that Amy is keeping busy creating great artwork.  This work is for: "The 'Literartistry' show opens at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA on August 11, 2007 from 7-10 pm and continues for 3 weeks. About 50 artists will participate, each interpreting his/her favorite book, and the books themselves will be available for check-out in an upstairs library."


The Story of Lolita, Part Two (2007)

Roland Bourigeaud
A modern surrealist painter in the spirit of Paul Delvaux.


Détail de la fiancée (1968)

Carole Landis Project [Bio 1919-1948]
Everything you always wanted to know about Carole Landis...

Andrzej Malinowski
I enjoyed the painting below in particular, but I am concerned a bit that the breasts of these young beauties seem to defy gravity. ;-)  Update: according to a reader, that is the artist's daughter in the painting below, and her breasts are rendered accurately.  Also, when I was looking at his artwork again, I found Belle De Fleurs to be quite beautiful.


Fil Bleu

Wham, Bam, Thank You Spaceman?  I bet these are the kind of movies Dick Cheney and Rummy used to watch.
