Paintings of the Past and the Artists

by Frank Bernard Dicksee
English, 1853-1928

(Note: I am placing a painting and the photograph of the artist to show the dignity of these artists and the subjects that they admired enough to paint. I like the contrasts of the women's soft, feminine appearance, and the artists rugged, yet neat and orderly; dignified masculine demeanor.)

Has anyone noticed the contrast between the women in the paintings and the photos and paintings of the artists? These look like rugged, masculine men, and they painted what they admired in women: brightness, prettiness, femininity,and lanquid contentment.

All too true: "I am placing a painting and the photograph of the artist to show the dignity of these artists and the subjects that they admired enough to paint. I like the contrasts of the women's soft, feminine appearance, and the artists rugged, yet neat and orderly; dignified masculine demeanor."
