So I just got back from my evening art course. We were etching, so we needed lots of newspapers to keep things clean, one of them had a painting on it that I liked so I tore it out and took it home. I had seen it before but I didn't know it's nor the painters name. Luckily I found this and it said so on the page.
Portrait of a young girl
I wanted to show you more than just one painting so I figured I could put some more medieval works up. I really like their atmosphere. They never look like a normal human being, but are kind of realistic at the same time.
Mary of Burgundy
It was of course a time in which women couldn't do what they wanted and they always seem to look a little said on paintings. But I don't think it's all sadness, they also give this powerful vibe, as if under their suppression they are secretly the ones in control. I can't help but feel an entire story when I'm looking at any of these paintings.
Elenora of Toledo
This last one reminded me of an owl. Don't you see a resemblance? I'm not sure if it's disrespectful to compare Queen Elizabeth to an owl, but I can't help it.
