History, Beautiful and Otherwise
I am fascinated with art history, and history in general. Sordid truths and hidden agendas; the realities of love and the atrocities of war. The historical figures we love and hate will be prominently featured, and I will also be discussing the artists who depict them.

I've just started, obviously, but soon you will be able to use the tags to search by time period, historical figure, artist, artistic era, country, or theme.

Painting above is A Glass of Wine with Cesare Borgia, John Collier 1893

The Purified Souls in Purgatory, a page from Très Riches Heures (c. 1412)

Très Riches Heures is arguably the best known example of manuscript illumination that survives to this day. Also known as the Book of Hours, the illuminated manuscript was created in France for the Duke Jean de Berry by the Limbourg brothers and many other assisting artists and finished around 1485.
