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 C. -- Romney ivory)
This is a monstrous collection of 18th century icons. I've got loads of batches that I haven't gotten around to posting, due to being busy, and this is only one of them. There are more 18th century paintings than you can shake a stick at, from so many different artists that it was quite a feat to keep track of them all! Where I couldn't discover the name of the artist/painting, I've put "unknown" next to as much information as I have.

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

beauty is a remnant of perfection in a fallen world )
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. :-)

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

''...allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.'' )
olde_fashioned: (art -- pink)
34 icons: 22 of the artwork of Elizabeth Vigee Le Brun and 12 of some Vintage Italian lady coasters of mine. I think these are Vintage, but sadly the ones for March and December have been lost. :-( As for the Vigee Le Brun icons, I just couldn't get enough of her artwork! Some of the costumes depicted are vasilate between late-Georgian and Regency. I love her choice of colors!

Please credit and comment, right-click to see the name of the painting, and don't steal or hotlink. Enjoy!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder )
olde_fashioned: (freedom -- horse)
Another batch of icons, and this time I have indulged my inner equestrienne. ;-) Most of these are horse-related, but I've thrown in a few random paintings of lovely ladies in pretty dresses. :-P

{~} 1-22 are photographs of horses, mostly Bob Langrish and horses-photos.org stock (hey, a pun!)
{~} 23-32 are from paintings by George Stubbs; right-click to see the names of the paintings.
{~} 33-43 are of various women in art, including some by Waterhouse, Edmund Blair Leighton, Lord Frederick Leighton, Vigee Le Brun, and Van Dyck. Again, right-click to see the URL's and names.

~ Comment/credit if taking (and please tell me which number you're using, since I've been experimenting with my styles and I'd like to know what you like)
~ No altering/stealing/hotlinking
~ Enjoy!


The rest are here! )
