Lately I seem to have been posting mostly women as subjects in art as well as a predominance of women painters, so today I thought I'd do the opposite. Just to keep things lively.
Men in Art. Not one artist, but several. Not one specific school of painting but many. I think these paintings prove (if it needed proving) that in art, men can be just as ornamental as women.
Frederick Gustavus Burnaby by J.J.J. Tissot (1836 - 1902)
I think I like Lord Ribblesdale the best! He's very distinguished. Have you read Strapless? It's about John Singer Sargent's Madame X.ReplyDelete
Lauren: I like that one too though he is very forbidding. My favorite first last and always will be the Burnaby portrait by Tissot.ReplyDelete
Though there's something about all these paintings that I like very much.
Madame X is a wonderful portrait. Without or without the strap. :)
There's also Paul Cezanne, who seemed to have painted many self-portraits.ReplyDelete
My favorites are Gaugain, Modigliani and Cezanne, having grown up with a mother who loved French impressionists and those who followed.
Our house was lined with their paintings and a few others.
Kathy: I absolutely adore when artists do self-portraits. It really gives you a link into their thinking and their own vision of themselves.ReplyDelete
Tissot is one of my favorite artists, and his Man in Railroad Car looks uncannily like my husband!ReplyDelete
Tissot is a favorite of mine as well, Cathy. LOVE his work.ReplyDelete
Man in A Railroad Car has so many wonderful details in it. Maybe you need to get a copy of this to hang in your house? :)
Nah... I got the real thing, even if he isn't ticklish!ReplyDelete
Lucky you, Cathy. :)ReplyDelete
