Artwork and Images - To Catch A Fancy

I wanted to start a thread where we could share artwork that catches our fancy. Favourite works of art, or things that we just stumble across as we surf. Whatever you find beautiful and want to share from the world of art

Here's one I just found that caught my eye.

I love it! I love this thread.

Oh 'cousin' I love it!

Back soon!

Ok, because I was talking about the slipper and the rose on the glitter thread I have this in mind



As a little girl I loved all the costumes in the film but the one in the scene based on this piece of art always seemed so pretty. I think I'd cry if I saw the painting in real life. . I have even considered getting a reproduction poster of it. . It's not so much the painting but the scene it brings to mind and the hopes and memory it contains. I still love peach and apricot clothes, even when they have been deeply unfashionable.

I am not allowed to embed imaged from this small but perfect exit on in the national gallery in London. When we decided to take the trip to London I wanted to see this, g has seen it twice before, but I was keen to see it too. It's just one, small room, a 'highlights' collection and glorious in its beauty. This collection of art feels like our gardens right now, all gardens flowering out of sync and, fewer skulls and rot that in much natura morte. ( which I love and am more familiar with, but ....a wonderful adventure) there is also an exhibition of the paintings painters had in their own homes. I would have loved to see that too, instead I content myself to read the reviews for now.

Very nice, Elle. Love them both! I had not thought about peach/apricot never being in fashion, but she looks so marvellously... feminine in it!

Yes, feminine, but not childlike. Fresh but not, 'baby' fresh. Romantic, but not....'sappy'. This is what this means to me. Feminine, exactly.

This is one of the numerous well known paintings in the Ashmolean in Oxford. I have never found it beautiful, but always captivating, magnetic. There are a few I visit there, and this one feels almost obligation, like a superstitious obligation.n n

Our neighbors had a weeping willow in their yard for years. I spent a lot of time under it as a child.

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

She has been through hell. So believe me when I say, fear her when she looks into the fire and smiles.

Weeping Willows are special huh? Our neighbour's to the south have one and I love it, they pollarded it this winter and I was very sad; these people have grandchildren, if nothing else their grandchildren are just the right 'tree age'

So sad 😢. Our neighbors lost theirs to a storm and had to cut what was left of it down. I was heartbroken 💔

Love this soothing waterfall of a painting. Quoting it again so we can keep looking at it.

I am also a fan of whimsy (of course ) and am particularly fond of trees and birds. They make me happy

Gain has a fondness for Flamingo art..the very classic, and the modern stunning watercolours. . There are SO many I shall not pick for him, but will ask at the weekend if he would like to respond to you arts birds. We have some dreary oils on wood of dead birds. I could probably share them here, they are rather grim though. The antithesis of frivoloty

Oddly enough, I positively adore still life paintings with game birds. Usually dead on a table with fruit I know, not very frivolous, but there is something so heart breakingly beautiful about them. And they are accessible in a way they never would be if alive. I have never thought about this before. A little weird, but.. hey. It's art. Needs no justification
