Venus and Cupid
In a time in which women painters were not easily accepted by the larger artistic profession, Gentileschi managed to distinguish herself by examining and portraying specific female points of view in her work. She was one of the first female artist to paint historical and religious paintings during a time in which such heroic pieces were considered beyond a woman’s scope.
Many of her works are a portrayal of strong suffering women in relation to greek myths and biblical stories. Many scholars believe she developed this style because she felt a connection to these women, who like her had struggled. The feminist related themes in which she painted throughout her life is no more evident than in her painting Venus and Cupid.
Many believe this painting is a commentary on the position of women in society and specifically the art profession. It depicts the strong and beautiful Godess Venus reclining across a beautifully colored scene. It is different from many of her other works that are often viewed as violent and angry, especially toward the male gender. Artemisia used a realistic portrayal of the human state, both physical and emotional, combined with dramatic lighting within her paintings to evoke strong emotions from the viewer which was in many ways a type of therapy and rebellion for and against the things she felt abused by in 17th century society.

My favorite painter is Carravaggio. If you've never seen his paintings then I suggest heading to a library and taking a book out on this renaissance genius STAT. My intrigue with his paintings is his ability to paint with a whole lot of soul. And what gives his work soul comes from within. He was truly mad. And in this day and age, where creating for the sake of creating is so readily available I find a whole lot of soul is being forgotten. I hope to create & embrace my madness within, and hope to keep my soul intact. -
Part of my madness includes reaching beyond what is, and find what can be. Thank you to T & D for allowing me so intimately into their lives to share a piece of their world. It was magical. It's on my blog, link in bio if you want to see.
The Fountain, Villa Fortonia, Frascati, Italy
John Singer Sargent
As one of the most sought-after and prolific portraitists of international high society, American expatriate John Singer Sargent painted the cosmopolitan world to which he belonged with elegance and a bravura touch. The artist traveled frequently, and it was during these trips that he experimented most extensively with painting en plein air, or outdoors. Set in a sunlit garden in the central Italian town of Frascati, this charming double portrait depicts Sargent’s friends and fellow artists Wilfrid and Jane Emmet de Glehn. The painting is filled with light, displaying Sargent’s characteristically dazzling surface articulated with thick impasto and virtuoso brushwork. Jane described the work as a “most amusing and killingly funny picture” in a letter to her sister Lydia. She continued: “I am all in white with a white painting blouse and a pale blue veil around my hat. I look rather like a pierrot, but have a rather worried expression as every painter should who isn’t a perfect fool, says Sargent. Wilfrid is in short sleeves, very idle and good for nothing, and our heads come against the great ‘panache’ of the fountain.”

by Leonardo from the @royalcollectiontrust
During the 1480s Leonardo entered the service of Ludovico Sforza, the ruler (and later Duke) of Milan, initially to execute a bronze equestrian monument to Ludovico’s father, Francesco. To help him build a clay model for the monument - well over life size - Leonardo measured individual horses minutely and drew them in a variety of poses. Here he studies a classically proportioned horse in strict profile and frontal views, drawn in closely hatched metalpoint that captures the fall of light with great subtlety and refinement.
From the clay model, Leonardo constructed a mould and built an entire foundry to execute the casting. Built in 1494 the 75 tons of bronze assembled for the casting were requisitioned to make cannon, and the project was suspended. Five years later French forces took Milan and deposed Ludovico: Leonardo’s model for the horse was used for target practice by the French troops and destroyed. - Martin Clayton, curator and head of prints and drawings @royalcollectiontrust #theartfund #artquarterly
