New artists, new art

New to me, I mean to say. And very welcome discoveries they are!

Estes Park Colorado, by Albert Bierstadt (Click twice to enlarge.)

I know this artist and his fabulous vistas, but I’d never seen this one.

 

Jungfrau Switzerland, by Alexandre Calame (Click twice to enlarge.)

 

Lake of the Four Cantons, by Alexandre Calame

I love the way the sun strikes the mountains while the trees in the foreground remain in shadow.

The Bachelor, by Rose O’Neill

I would have entitled it The Bachelor Beset (or Bewitched or Besieged). What a felicitous discovery is Rose O’Neill, who, among other things, created the Kewpies (derived from ‘Cupid’).

Worshipping Freddie, by Rose O’Neill

Inevitably, this illustration put me in mind of delightful visits to The Art Institute of Chicago with Welles, Etta, and their game-for-anything Mom.

 

Sale at Bendel’s, by Florine Stettheimer

Marvelous! Henri Bendel has been a fixture on Fifth Avenue for as long as I can remember. And Florine Stettheimer is yet another fascinating discovery.

New Mexico Afternoon by Carlos Vierra

 

Northern New Mexico in Winter, Carlos Vierra

 

Santa Fe by Carlos Vierra

Carlos Vierra’s art reveals the glorious color in (supposedly) monochromatic New Mexico.

Yes, the sky really is that blue, nearly every day. Sigh…

 

Along the Rio Grande, by Walter Ufer

 

Navajo Women Waiting, by Barbara Latham (Click to enlarge.)

    Its 3:33am and I am spending time relishing the music and art you have shared with your readers. A time of peaceful delight and deep reflection. Thank you for all the work that goes into your Books to the Ceiling Roberta.
