Beautiful Feminine Art

Post OsricPearl on Fri 9 Feb - 21:50

Post beautiful non-postmodern*, western, art with feminine themes. (Art created by Europeans and related people). It can be a modern painting in a classic, pre-modern style.

Sandra Kuck - A precious mother and child

* no photography. tasteful modern art is OK but no postmodern stuff. NO cubism or extreme abstract art.

^ That's very realistic.

I don't know much about the art world but I had the name Pre-Raphaelite in my mind and a search immediately turned up many fine paintings that fit the feminine theme. Here are three to be going on with:


Windflowers - John William Waterhouse


Lady Godiva - John Collier


The Last Sleep of Arthur in Avalon - Edward Burne-Jones

Those are very pretty.
That's exactly what I had in mind. Lovestruck

I'm Ok with more modern looks too, as long as it isn't post-modern garbage.

I really like how the dresses look. They look real! It looks almost like a picture.

I can't see the second one. But that first picture is quite lovely. Waterhouse was a very good artist.

It's annoying when that happens but I got around it, so now you can see Smile 1  I thought you'd like the first one.

those are very romantic. I like the one with the swans the best. I admire people who can draw/illustrate. It's a skill that I never quite developed, even though I did practice at it when I was younger. The best I got was cartoon style drawing, which has a niche, but it wasn't what I was looking for, obviously. Wink 1

I've noticed there are alot of good modern (as in current) who have rejected post modernism.

I have always been drawn to the paintings by Mary Cassatt, she was a very talented American female artist.

Victoria Frances does similar pictures to Ana Cruz. Not quite as good technically, I think, but I like her style which is quite dark . . .
