    Talk about your scenes from Sense and Sensuality.

    Enter the Neo-Classical-Pre-Raphaelite-Bougoise-Realists. . . I mean the art history loving folk who can draw and paint the figure really well.

    I am always blown away by this kind of painting. Seeing it brings back the smell of turpentine and charcoal dust and the heightened visual acuteness that comes from timed poses.

    Great find, Enchanter!

    Three cheers for Alma-Tadema and Bougereau!

    WOW ...this is inspiration indeed. Thanks for posting this link. All those artists are awesome and my personal favorite is Victor Wang...I never knew about him before today.
    Im guessing these are traditional paintings , not digital...but what say you?

    Thanks so much for the link! It truly is inspirational--makes me want to have a go at the figure, though after looking at all these fine pieces Im not sure Im up to it.

    I came across a site that might be worth a look:

    http://www.artrenewal.org/index.asp

    It has sort of a snobby feel to it, but there are many examples of fine 19th-century art. The figure studies of Bougereau (sp?) are interesting. If I remember correctly, it also has several examples of one of my favorite, probably minor, English landscape artists, Grimshaw. Definitely not for the progressive who is faint of heart.

    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Two different art movements tongue-in-cheek united by hyphens to group the artists who are heroic among the crowd that follows and perhaps aspires to this look.

    Neo-Classical and Pre-Raphaelite. Two realistic story telling art movements that are into historic mythology, fantasy and some real life stuff too. Brilliant artists though when it comes to realism to help people visualize.

    In short: Thanks for the links, chum. They're pretty groovy.
