Starting where I left off yesterday, the French artist Elizabeth Vigee Le Brun painted Countess Anna Ivanova Tolstoya in 1796 during her exile following the French Revolution.
The Tomb Of General Brock, Near Queenston, Lake Ontario, Upper Canada is the title of this painting by Thomas Cole, depicting the memorial of the War of 1812 hero who fell at the Battle of Queenston Heights facing an American invasion. It dates to 1830.
Here we have a couple of views up and down a side gallery.
In here was this rather morbid work. Salome And The Head Of John The Baptist depicts the New Testament wife of King Herod seeming amused by the severed head. It was done between 1895-98.
Here we have a couple of different works from the same artist, Gustave Dore. Souvenir Of Loch Lomond was painted in 1875.
This bronze sculpture is titled Fate And Love. Dating to 1877, it depicts two immortals of Greek mythology, Atropos of the three Fates and Eros, the god of love.
For today I finish with another view of Canova's Dancer.
