“Autumn” 1896 ✒️ • • Originally made for a calendar - it was rejected for being too erotically charged. This could be the inspiration for @realalphonsemucha Autumn pieces which share composition elements as it was published in France #aubreybeardsley #alphonsemucha #artnouveau #victorian #britishart #victorianart #inkdrawing #victoriana #beardsley #frenchart

Swaying Dancer (Dancer in Green) by Edgar Degas from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid, Spain. Thank you to everyone who responded to my instagram story on starting ballet as a teen. I will be starting classes at school in a month 🤗😲 I’m excited and nervous and hoping I’ll one day get to wear a fluffy tutu like the ones in a Degas painting ❤️ / / / / #degas #arthistory #ballet #ballettutu #tutu #dress #dresshistory #degasdancer #degasdancers #green #victorian #victorianfashion #vintage #green #greenpainting #art #beauty #dance #balletcostume #balletcostumes #fashionhistory #dresshistory #france #french #frenchart #19thcentury #19thcenturyart #victorianart #impressionist #impressionistart #artmuseum

William Agnew, MP, art dealer and Liberal politician. At the time of this painting he had recently been elected as MP for South East Lancashire. Along with his brother Thomas he helped to establish @agnewsgallery (founded in Manchester by their father in 1817) as a leading international firm. Opening in London in 1860, Agnew’s soon became one of Mayfair’s leading galleries. Since then Agnew’s has held a pre-eminent position in the Art world. Apart from encouraging his friend Henry Tate to found the Tate Gallery, Agnew was also instrumental in promoting contemporary British art in the late 19th century.  Working with a veritable who’s who of the Victorian art scene including Frederic Lord Leighton, Edward Landseer, William Holman Hunt, John Millais, George Frederic Watts, and Alma-Tadema. #williampowellfrith  #privateview  #theprivateviewattheroyalacademy   #royalacademy  #martinbeisly   #victorians  #victorianart  #victorianpainting  #victorianartists  #19thcentury  #arthistory  #londonart  #masterpiece  #panorama  #stjames #fredericlordleighton  #leighton #lordleighton  #Landseer  #holmanhunt  #WilliamHolmanHunt  #JohnMillais#Watts  #GFWatts  #almatadema #lawrencealmatadema  #britishart #britishartist www.martinbeislyfineart.com

Edward Poynter (1863 - 1919) - Zenobia Captive / Poynter was the son of the architect Ambrose Poynter. He was born in Paris, though his parents returned to Britain soon after. He was educated at Brighton College and Ipswich School, but left school early for reasons of ill health, spending winters in Madeira and Rome. In 1853 he met Frederick Leighton in Rome, who made a great impression on the 17-year-old Poynter. On his return to London he studied at Leigh's Academy in Newman Street and the Royal Academy Schools, before going to Paris to study in the studio of the classicist painter Charles Gleyre where James McNeill Whistler and George du Maurier were fellow-students. In 1866 Poynter married the famous beauty Agnes MacDonald, daughter of the Rev G B MacDonald of Wolverhampton, and they had three children. Her sister Georgiana married the artist Edward Burne-Jones; her sister Alice was the mother of writer Rudyard Kipling; and her sister Louisa was the mother of three-times Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Stanley Baldwin. #siredwardjohnpoynter #poynter #edwardjohnpoynter #poynter #johnpoynter #academicart #academicpainter #art #arthistory #classicalart #fineart #arteducation #victorian #preraphaelite #impressionism #britishimpresionist #britishartist #portrait #victorianart

Poirson family history says Sargent painted this portrait of Madame Paul Poirson (neé Seymourina Cuthberson), along with another one of her daughter, in lieu of payment for the studio space he rented from Paul Poirson. ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ The portrait was painted at roughly the same time as Sargent's famous 'Madame X', and makes an interesting comparison. Both women's portraits give a sense of cool aloofness, while using completely different strategies to convey this. Seymourina's portrait is done in soft pinks and blues, which frost the image, rather than making it warm and welcoming. She looks directly at the viewer, but her hands, held slightly awkwardly in front of her, form a boundary that holds us a distance. The lines of her bracelets and velvet choker also act as visual barriers. While Seymourina's complementary pastels turn her into an ice queen, Madame X's contrasting black and white achieve the same effect, and her face, turned away in profile, holds her apart from her audience. ⁣⠀ ⁣.⁣⁣⠀ John Singer Sargent, Madame Paul Poirson, 1885, Detroit Institute of Arts⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ #sargent #johnsingersargent #art #victorianart #arthistory #victorianstyle #madameX #victorianfashion #victorianhistory #19thcenturyart #1880sart #1880s #1880sstyle #1880sfashion #fashionhistory #historicalfashion #costumehistory #costumehistorian #victorian #victoriandress #victoriancostume #1880sdress #history #fashionhistoryblogger #historyblogger #thedreamstress

Gertrude Vernon (1864-1932) married Sir Andrew Agnew, 9th Baronet of Lochnaw Castle, in 1889. A few years later, during 1892, he commissioned John Singer Sargent to paint her portrait. The success of the painting endowed Lady Agnew with additional notability and prestige and launched her as a society beauty. ⁣ Lady Agnew is pictured in a three-quarter length pose, dressed in a white gown with a silk mauve sash as an accessory round her waist. The wall behind her is draped with Chinese silk of a blue colour. She looks directly and appraisingly, her expression capturing the impression she is participating in an "intimate conversation" with those observing the painting.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ Lady Agnew of Lochna, John Singer Sargent, 1892.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #historicaldress #portrait #19thcentury #19thcenturyfashion #dresshistory #costumehistory #historicalcostume #historyoffashion #historicalfashion #mrmortimerswife #victoriancostume #victorian #victorianportrait #victoriandress #johnsingersargent #ladyagnew #beauty #victorianbeauty #artlover #art #victorianportrait #artlover #victorianart #historyblogger #fashionhistoryblogger

George Cruikshank was a Victorian anti-alcohol campaigner (perhaps understandable given his own father collapsed and died after drinking a yard of ale). His etchings entitled The Drunkard's Children are a cautionary tale. Here a girl 'homeless, friendless, deserted, destitute and gin mad' leaps into the Thames. 'Gin mad', well we've all been there. Curiously, on his death the temperate Cruikshank was discovered to have a large surfeit of wine in his possession. #cruikshank #victoriana #victorianart #drunkardschildren #19thcentury #thetemperancemovement
One of a kind Victorian gothic style portrait of a woman drawn onto a painted wooden plaque (3.25" by 5").

‘Beauty and the Beast’ (1865) Arthur Hughes. This is the scene where Beauty has been granted a week to go home to her family. The beast has sent a magical trunk of rich gowns with her, but she chooses the simplest of them to wear. #englishartist #preraphaelites #preraphaeliteart #arthurhughes #victorianart #beautyandthebeast #fairytaleart #ilovefairytales #fairytales #authorsofinstagram #fairytaleauthor #ninaclareauthor
Sir Henry Thompson, 1st Baronet was a surgeon, specialising in diseases of the urinary system. He became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1850 and was promoted full surgeon at University College Hospital in 1862. In 1863 his reputation was considerably enhanced by being called upon to treat King Leopold I of Belgium. In 1866 Thompson was appointed professor of clinical surgery at University College and was knighted the following year. He was the archetypal Victorian polymath, publishing widely not only textbooks on urology, but books and articles on subjects that interested him. He published two best-selling novels on medical themes, studied painting with Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, illustrated his own textbooks and exhibited at the Royal Academy for a number of years. Thompson followed the Aesthetic fashion for collecting blue-and-white Nankin porcelain and illustrated, a catalogue of his collection. In 1872 Thompson founded the celebrated ‘Octaves’, dinners comprising eight simple dishes, beginning at eight o'clock and for eight guests. Renowned for their cuisine and conversation, they were attended by royalty, colleagues, men from the arts, literature, the professions and politics and celebrated foreign visitors. #williampowellfrith  #privateview  #theprivateviewattheroyalacademy   #royalacademy  #martinbeisly   #victorians  #victorianart  #victorianpainting  #victorianartists  #19thcentury  #arthistory  #londonart  #masterpiece  #panorama
Last chance to vote for us for The Tile Association ‘Best Domestic Project 2018’ for this project we did back in December in Barry, South Wales As a small company we would really appreciate all the support we can get! You can vote for us by following the link in our profile. Voting closes tomorrow Thank you all Matt and Kevin One of our most challenging restorations yet, this stunning original @cdjackfield floor was hidden under carpet, underlay, lino, and the thickest layer of bitumen we've ever come across! We also had to solve structural issues at the foot of the stairs and make repairs throughout. But what a transformation! A fantastic original feature to welcome you home. #victorian #victorianhouse #victorianstyle #victorianarchitecture #victorianterrace #victorianrenovation #victoriandecor #victorianhouses #victorianhomes #victorianhome #victorianart #victoriandesign #victorians #craftsmanship #craftsmen #craftsmanstyle #mastercraftsmanship #qualitycraftsmanship #handcraftsmanship #tiles #tiling #encaustic #encaustictiles #encaustictile #original #originalfeatures

Don’t normally like taking pictures at an exhibition as I feel it stops you really looking properly at the paintings. Made an exception today as the colours were so spectacular #tatebritain #tate #london #artexhibition #edwardburnejones #artsandcrafts #victorianart #preraphaelite
@bonhams1793 ・・・ Discover studies by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones including this study of a head in profile from our forthcoming 19th Century Art sale tomorrow in London. Burne-Jones drew for the sheer pleasure of drawing. The sensuousness of his handling of line in ink, pencil or chalk, and his feeling for granular or hatched texture on paper, touches us and allows us to sense the satisfaction, matched by intense concentration, which he felt in making such beautiful images. 19th Century European, Victorian An British Impressionist Art sale, February 20 2019, New Bond St, London #bonhams #bonhams1793 #bonhamslondon #bonhams19thCenturyart #19thcenturyart #britishart #victorianart #study #pencilstudy #portrait #fineart #drawing #artcollector #artcollection #artcollecting #auction #bidding
Available (DM for details): the ‘Rocks at Tintagel’ by #WilliamBlakeRichmond (1842-1921), exhibited at the New Gallery in 1900-01. #Tintagel in #Cornwall has long been intertwined with Arthurian legend, which claims #KingArthur was conceived there. The site was (and remains) a popular tourist destination, and surely attracted Richmond, who had a robust interest in both archaeology and mythology #arthurianlegend #coast #rocks #geology #cornish #19thcentury #19thcenturyart #victorianart #victorian #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #art #artoftheday #artcollector #painting #goldframe #decor #homedecor #interiordesign

Queen Victoria (1819-1901). 31" x 20.5" Photogravure from 1885. Housed in original oak frame and in exceptional condition. This was her official state portrait. This image is also in the Collection of The British Museum. Message for more info. Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom and Ireland from 1837 till her death. She was the longest serving British Monarch until her great-great granddaughter Queen Elizabeth II recently passed her. A photogravure is a process where a photograph is taken of a work of art. The negative is then transferred and etched into a copper plate which is coated with light-sensitive solution. Ink is coated onto the copper plate, which rests down in the recessed (etched) areas. Paper is then pressed down on the plate which pulls the inked design and a copy is made. . . . . . #art #arthistory #artgalleries #britishart #queenvictoria #photogravure #etching #victorianart #regal #royalty #oregonartdealer #historicartandservices #auroraoregon #fineprint #print #europeanart #longlivethequeen #crown #jewelry #lace #fan

Christ blesses the children / Artist: Hardmans / Location: St Bernard’s Convent, Slough / "People were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. But Jesus called for them and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”” (Luke 18:15-17)
