GALLERY OF SELECTIVE ARTWORK

Index to Paintings by some of my favourite artists
(click on each artist's name to see more...)

Although this site is called Enchanted Serenity of Period Films, I've recently gathered a few of the paintings that have caught my eye. I've been delighted to find more creations by the same artist when I had previously only known one or two pieces of their artwork. For instance, one of my favourite paintings has been Empress Eugenie Surrounded by Her Ladies in Waiting. Once I discovered the painting's title, I was thrilled to discover the story behind Franz Xavier Winterhalter and many of his other paintings as one of the regal court's favoured artists (including of Queen Victoria). Other artists that impressed me with their style and setting include Edmund Blair Leighton, Sir Frank Dicksee and John William Waterhouse.

More paintings by the "painter of princes" who was in constant demand
by the courts of Britain, Spain,Belgium, Russia, Mexico, the German courts, and France.

  2. Thanks Maria! I've had such fun finding these paintings - noticing one or two on other websites and then finding out more about that artist. Collecting them in my "imaginary" gallery is a lot cheaper than collecting them in reality! :)

  4. Just discovered your "Gallery of Selective Artwork" - Interesting how many I recognize from various book covers...Some are my absolute favourites! (I've added those to my Photobucket - hope that's ok)

    As you said - certainly cheaper to collect them on a website than to actually have them in possession....thanks for sharing!!

  5. BCSandra, isn't it neat how more and more of these classic paintings are being used with novels these days? I love recognizing them as well and don't mind at all if you've added them to your 'virtual' gallery!
