The straight up “omg hehehehethere’s a willy” of art history strikes again.
The Sunflower by Gustav Klimt, 1907.
Geoffrey Moss Pool Series | Deep End (2008) Oil on canvas. (24 x 24 inches)
Moss is a wonderful painter and illustrator. He made the illustrations for my aunt’s book ‘Benjamin’s Ring’ (Link here) about Wagner’s ‘Ring Cycle’. Gorgeous and haunting, it’s a children’s book and the type that’ll fill adults and kids with that sense of enchantment and dread.
Jessie Arms Botke The Peacock (1931)Oil and gold leaf on canvas (34 x 40 inches)
Jessie Arms Botke (1883-1971), Peacocks and Delphiniums
Love Sarah Maple.
Working on an essay and I need to reference to a painting that helps me make the point that art and architecture are inherently engendered.
I don’t have one in particular in mind, but I know something similar to what I’m thinking has got to be out there.
- 19th century
- Preferably European
- Subject: Female seated in an interior (but quite clearly her sitting room, bedroom, in a house)
- She should be looking somewhat bored or occupied with a hobby/children
Any help and I would be insanely obliged. In the meantime, I’ll keep scouring all the #art tumblrs…
