Art And Beauty

Woman in the Window (Wife of a Treasurer). Vasily Tropinin, 1841

Let's take a beauty break and look at some treasures that have noting to do with products, #hashtags, commercial interests, promotions, or social media. Just art, beauty, and a fantasy:

Portrait of Agnes Macdonald Poynter by Sir Edward John Poynter (1866)

Cleopatra, John William Waterhouse, 1887

Frederico de Madrazo y Kuntz - Amalia de Llano y Dotres, Countess of Vilches, 1853

Lotte - Christian Schad, 1927


  1. I love this post! Really enjoyable. Did you notice that "The Woman in the Window" looks like you? So pretty.

  2. Looking at these has been an extremely welcome late afternoon break. Thank you!

  3. Love Cleopatra! she's thinking hard about something-!!!

  4. I agree with Natalie about the first painting! lol I do like Cleopatra and the Countess of Vilches seems like quite the sweet young woman, despite having such a title as Countess.

  5. John William Waterhouse was a magnificent painter. I love all of his works. This was lovely. Thank you!

  6. These are absolutely lovely. Thanks for posting these. You find beautiful images for your posts!
