Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Thayendanegea (Joseph Brant) is the title of this 1776 portrait by British artist George Romney, done while the Mohawk chief was visiting Britain.
Antonio Canova sculpted Dancer, dating to 1818-22. It is my favourite sculpture in the Gallery.
That is remarkably thin fabric considering it's made of marble.
Sculptures are so amazing. I think I like them better than paintings----well at the moment, yes.MB
Beautiful sculpture and photos. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day! Wishing you a great new week!
It must have been quite the experience for Joseph Brant to cross the ocean and visit Britain.
...two different art subjects.
Amazes me how sculptors can do all of that draping.
Lovely sculpture which gives the nudity (evident in every way) an effective apology with well draped thin fabric. Thus the prudish among us will be offended and then find forgiveness while they blush!
@Linda: it was quite a feat.@MB: this one especially.@Eileen: thank you.@David: it would have.@Tom: that they are.@Janey: me too.@Barbara: true!
That's interesting, Joseph Brant. What we've done to First Nations.
You have captured the dancer in all her beauty!
History is so awesome ~ great displays and photos ~ XoLiving moment by moment,A ShutterBug Explores,aka (A Creative Harbor)
The dancer is graceful!
The Canova sculpture is beautiful!
The dancer is absolutely gorgeous.
I can see why Dancer would be a favorite. I love it and appreciate seeing it from so many different angles. :-)
The dancer is still adorable.
I love the Dancer too!
@Jennifer: indeed.@Magiceye: thanks.@Carol: thank you.@Italiafinlandia: very much so.@Sharon: definitely.@Bill: I agree.@DJan: thanks!@Jan: indeed.@RedPat: good!
I love the portret, such a beautiful painting.
That certainly is one form fitting gown. I see why onlookers applauded her.
She looks quite life like.
It looks like a wonderful gallery. We have nothing like that.
One of the benefits of living in a national capital.
Such a beautiful sculpture!
Very much so.
What elegant draping. I so admire how they do that.
It was so well done.
WOW, that sculpture is spectacular!
