olde_fashioned: (18th C. -- Romney white)
This is a MASSIVE dump of icons posted in honour of two very special friends (you know who you are!) who both happen to share a love of the 18th century; I hope no one minds "sharing" a gift, as I am posting them publicly for the enjoyment of all my other readers! ;-D

I do apologize for the lack of my usual extensive noting of the artist and painting in my art posts, but to be frank, the vast majority of these I found without any names attached to them; therefore, I am in complete ignorance. Deciding it would be better to post them as unknowns than to never use them, I've thrown them in random order along with some other paintings whose artist and subject name (and, sometimes a date) I have endeavored to preserve in the file name (right-click>>copy image location, or right-click>>save image as).

The tags will give you an idea of some of the artists you can expect to see. ;-)

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion. )
olde_fashioned: (18th century -- Copley blue sleeves)
Almost four dozen icons of one of my favourite subjects: 18th Century art and fashions. There are a large amount of John Singleton Copley icons, Allan Ramsay, with Gustave Jean Jacquet, a 19th century artist whose style is so similar that I decided to go ahead and include him, especially since his subjects seem to be clad in 18th century-esque garments. ;-)

Where possible, I've preserved the titles of the paintings in the URLs, except for Ramsay. Minimal again this time, because I felt it suited the portraits better. They're so lovely, they don't need any textures.

All our tears have reached the sea // part of you will live in me // way down deep inside my heart )
olde_fashioned: (Ingres -- white gown and lavender)
More icontest entries (mostly Regency, but some Medieval, too) of various Jane Austen adaptations, with some paintings by Ingres, Vigee LeBrun, Copley, Gainsborough, and a ton of other Regency images for various [livejournal.com profile] regency_stills contests. :-)

olde_fashioned: (18th century -- Copley blue sleeves)
Almost three dozen icons of one of my favourite subjects: 18th Century art and fashions! 8-D Most of these are by Thomas Gainsborough, but there are a few John Singleton Copley icons, as well two wallpapers.

I've preserved the titles of the paintings at the bottom and have numbered them to correspond with their sucessive icons. ;-) Mostly minimal this time around, because I felt it suited the portraits better. They're so lovely, they don't need any textures.

And yes I made one of Blue Boy. ;-P

She said there is no reason, and the truth is plain to see... )
