Hermann Hanaczek, 1873? drawing / academic nude.
From the wonderful Academic Nudes of the 19th Century blog
Again another academic nude drawing from Academic Nudes blog – no info on this one apart from it’s mid-late 19th Century.
Another academic nude, this time a painting. No info.
If I ever write a novel, this would be the perfect cover!
From Academic Nudes of the 19th Century.
An old photo of a formless ghost I reblogged is being flagged! This is madness.
Oh… and a painting of hands
-a photograph of some woods
-a Rossetti painting
-a Gericault painting of a fully clothed painter
– a picture of a living room,
-George IV riding a horse
-an illustration from Dickens’ Barnaby Rudge
-a midshipman’s uniform
I’ll add these have been flagged on this very blog:
– A fully clothed picture of a Victorian man in a top hat
– Two Holbein portraits. He only did clothed people and faces!
– A photo of Matisse drawing a naked male abstract greek statue, a Kouros. Not sexual at all.
– Two men wrestling in shorts – that was an illustration too
– A drawing of Nietzsche naked but no genitalia shown
– A life drawing of a man but again no genitalia shown
– Nicoletto da Modena etching of a Triton (again, not even a human bottom half so no genitalia)
Man on bus in a bowler, no idea of when this was taken. Victorian times?
Vincent Price rocking the Victorian look in House of Wax. Is that a real moustache? The beard looks right though.
John (A): Head of an old man.
Ahh Augustus Edwin John…he gets the press because of the Victorian shock over his hippie/bohemian ‘gypsy’ lifestyle, and his sister Gwen got kind of ignored (she was more quiet, internal, reflective). I think she was the better painter, but I like this one from Augustus.
Not sure if I posted this alternative picture of HRH Henry of Battenburg, and son-in-law of Queen Victoria – the other picture is still the wallpaper on my phone, has been for years. This is the epitomy of style to me.
