I no longer get daily posts from them, BUT today I lucked out to get the post (way up top) about Anna Alma-Tadema. Wow. I was mesmerized. Spellbound. It looked like a high-resolution photograph. I still can’t believe it is a painting. Wow.

I had to share it with you. And I am.

Quite the lady. A suffragette as well.

Appears that her father, a knighted ‘Sir’, was quite famous too.

Enjoy.

She reminded me of her … from November.

Cracked me up. NOTHING, at all, at all wrong with it. Actually very, very clever. I tip my hat to her.

You get it, right? Love the folds. Wow. Love where her head is positioned.

No. No. It is NOT a matter of getting your mind off the gutter. She wanted to see how many would get it.

Very, very old and sacred symbology. Font of Life. Where all life starts (bar modern ‘test tube’, IVF, babies).

You do KNOW that church, cathedral and abbey doorways have portrayed this since time immemorial. You did KNOW that, right? See classic picture below.

I had not encountered this lady before BUT I will rectify that soon.

Just observe and marvel.

You do get the symbology … right? Intentional. Was meant to take YOU back to where you came from. Very clever. Very obvious.

Click to ENLARGE. You can see the group name, viz. “Female Artists in History”. This was the picture they used to publicize her.

Today’s treat was the picture shown in the 2nd image above. I was blown away. What detail. Looks like a photograph. So realistic. What talent. What patience. What dedication.

That she was female and British was a bonus.

I shared the Facebook post on my Facebook timeline and I was amazed by the folks that reacted and responded. She definitely gets attention and admiration.

Enjoy.

Her father, James Hayllar, was also a famous painter. Here is one of his paintings.

Consequently, I am rewarded each day with quite a few examples of art that I have never seen before. I always try to stop and study. Invariably, alas, I am short of time to research the artists as much as I would like.

The Kate Bunce painting, at top, however, stopped me in my tracks. Struck a chord. I found the color, the detail and composition very pleasing. It could have been the work of a Renaissance great! Then I saw she was British. So, I made a note of her name. I then went back tonight to look her up.

I wanted to share her with you. Yes, she is not unique but she sure has a je ne sais quoi touch.
