This painter is my second favorite. Edmund Blair Leighton, he was born later than Vermeer and i think in the later 1800 century art was developed differently than centuries before so i don't really compare.
Edmund was born in 1853 and died in 1922. Edmund Leighton was an English painter who did many types of art work, for instance the knight age, Roman periods, and the English society. These are just some of his many works. My favorite of all is "Signing the Register" and the following...

"Signing the Register"
"Stitching the standard"

"The Gladiator's Wife" (1884)

What do you think???


  1. I really like them. The first two are my favorites. I have never herd of him before.

  2. I just saw some of his work on line.
