snufkin and moomintroll in the valley
Happy 100th Birthday Tove Jansson (1914-2001), a talented writer and artist and the creator of the Moomins.
I made a transparent Snufkin for your blog
The Red Cape (1902). Alphonse Maria Mucha (Czech, 1860-1939). Oil on canvas.
Mucha insisted always that, rather than adhering to any fashionable stylistic form, his paintings came purely from within and Czech art. He declared that art existed only to communicate a spiritual message, and nothing more; hence his frustration at the fame he gained through commercial art, when he wanted always to concentrate on more lofty projects that would ennoble art and his birthplace.
Ballerinas. Doris Zinkeisen (Scottish, 1898-1991). Oil on canvas.
Zinkeisen’s realist style made her popular as a portraitist and she became a well-known society painter. The subject matter of her paintings, society portraiture, equestrian portraiture and scenes from the parks, and in this case a theatre, of London and Paris reflect the lifestyle of the upper class at the time.
