Every once in a while I come across an artist, new to me, whose work I greatly admire. Recently I found a painting at the blog British Paintings (they post paintings from mostly Victorian painters) that intrigued me. I've had such fun looking up his other paintings!
The artist is:
William Arthur Breakspeare
British painter, 1856 - 1914
Take a look at some of his lovely works:
A Venetian Beauty
A Toast To The Chef
If Music Be The Food Of Love
Where Are You Going To, My Pretty Maid
The Cavalier's Sword
A Musical Interlude
The Sleeping Beauty
Outside of the Rose and Crown
A Flirtation in the Rose Garden
The Reluctant Pianist
The Gardener's Daughter
A Bouquet of Flowers
And this painting is the one that drew my attention:
This is my favorite painting of Mr. Breakspeare's because it's like a scene straight out of a Jane Austen novel! It's filled with so much detail and beauty and it's a sweet scene of a courting couple.
I love William Breakspeare's style of painting and the gentle lovely scenes that he's created on canvas! Each piece is touched with delightful spirit and old-fashioned charm! The titles are also sweet and add to the enchantment of the paintings so well, sometimes with a bit of poetic idea to them.
Have you ever seen the work of William Arthur Breakspeare before?
Which of these paintings is your favorite?
Which paintings have the best titles?
Very Truly Your's,
