Jan van Eyck - Lucca Madonna

>>
Painted less than six years before Van Gogh developed that powerfully expressive Post-Impressionist style we recognise as quintessentially his own, In the Dunes may display little outward sign of this signature aspect. It nonetheless reveals most presciently nearly everything we have come to know about this man’s famously turbulent and impassioned nature.

“I came home from the dunes behind Loosduinen, soaking wet because I spent three hours in the rain at a spot where everything was Ruisdael, Daubigny or Jules Dupré. I came back with a study of crooked windswept trees, and a second of a farm after the rain.”

Abbott Fuller Graves - Ye Olde Time Drugge Shop

This work was commissioned in the late 19th century by Frederick Stearns, the owner of one of the country's largest drug manufacturers, who wanted a painting of an American pharmacy as it was when his company was founded in 1855. Using an old store in his hometown of Kennebunkport, Maine and local people as models, in Ye Old Time Drugge Shop, Abbott Fuller Graves (1859 - 1936) captures the simplicity of old-fashioned small town life while also recognising the idiosyncrasies of the individuals posing.

René Magritte - Poetic World II (The) (Le monde poétique II) [1937]

René Magritte employed the faculty of sight, and as its agent the eye, to denote the presence of human consciousness as a knowledgeable awareness of the world. Here he has depicted the human eyeball, with its connecting optical nerve, disembodied from its owner’s skull, as if it were the monstrous, all-seeing brain of some serpentine creature. This roving eye becomes a metaphor for our mind in the world as we navigate the mysteries of existence, in Magritte’s imagery, the curtains of illusion, the sharp pyramidal spires of life’s painful difficulties, ominously set before a rent and tattered sky.

Fr𝗮nçois-Hippolyte Debon - A Recit𝗮l in the Artist’s Studio

François-Hippolyte Debon (Paris, December 2, 1807 - February 29, 1872) was a French painter. He studied under Antoine-Jean Gros and Abel de Pujol, and exhibited at the Paris Salon, where he won several medals, including a third class one in 1844 and two second class ones in 1835 and 1868.

Hello guys, I know this isn't a source thread, but I was looking for one painting for many years. I hope you would help me.

Description:
The painting was dynamic, depicting a rider on a black horse holding a woman in a white dress. The rider was a knight in black armor, and red glowing eyes could be seen beneath his close helmet. The background was chaotically black and red. The image in almost one hundred percent came from the Romantic era. The author was probably an English, possible Anglo-Saxon painting.

Luisa Max-Ehrlerová - Telegram [1894]

At the end of the 19th century, it was still quite rare to see the artwork of female painters at exhibitions in Prague. Acquiring an official education was the main problem of women as well as pursuing their career afterwards. Louisa Ehrlerová lived in Prague from 1864; later she married the painter Heinrich Max which made her the sister-in-law of the famous painter Gabriel Max. She was affected by the art of the brothers; the same figures are found in her paintings: female saints, Madonnas, and women in tense life situations as visible in Telegram purchased at the exhibition of Krasoumná jednota (Fine Arts Union) in the Rudolfinum in 1895.

Théodore Gérard - The Returnee [1884]

Théodore Gérard (1829 - 1895) was known for his subtle narrated genre depictions with beautifully observed details in the figures. Through atmospheric mimics, eloquent gestures and clever groupings, the artist manages to combine many-figure scenes such as the painting offered here into a self-contained picture narrative. A bustling collection of people follows their daily routine in a narrow gap while a returnee probably a drunkard, who is led home by a gendarme, his family welcomed with open arms. The surrounding people encounter the return of the prodigal son in various ways, from indignant to disparaging.

Michiel van Musscher - The Artist in His Studio [1670]

Michiel van Musscher (Rotterdam, 1645 - Amsterdam, 1705) was the leading painter of portraits and genre scenes in Amsterdam in the late-seventeenth century. The confidence he gained from this success is reflected in the self-portraits he painted, seven of which are known today, each employing a different formula and stemming from a different moment of his career.

>The Course of Empire is a series of five paintings created by Thomas Cole in the years 1833–36. It is notable in part for reflecting popular American sentiments of the times, when many saw pastoralism as the ideal phase of human civilization, fearing that empire would lead to gluttony and inevitable decay.

Choose one.

It mostly works, but somehow it can get rid of some detail, like this time I had to sacrifice cloud for removing crackles, maybe I could do even that properly but I'm happy that there are still some bricks on that wall. There was pretty decend jpeg artifacts so it's harder.

If it's just the faded color it's easier.

>perseus
fun fact:
A Greek folk etymology connected the name of the Persian (Pars) people, whom they called the Persai. The native name, however, has always had an -a- in Persian. Herodotus[2] recounts this story, devising a foreign son, Perses, from whom the Persians took the name.

Gerrit van Honthorst - Smiling Girl, a Courtesan, Holding an Obscene Image [1625]

At first glance this image appears to be a simple picture of a smiling young girl. It is in fact a prostitute’s portrait. Contemporary accounts record the display of painted likenesses of young women to advertise their availability. The medallion inscription, “Who can tell my backside from behind,” confirms the erotic nature of this image. The brilliant highlights that contrast against the dark background and the careful shading to create three-dimensionality were popular stylistic elements that the artist developed in Rome in the early 17th century.

Gerrit van Honthorst - Woman Playing the Guitar [1624]

Gerrit van Honthorst was born in Utrecht on November 4, 1590. Honthorst, the son of a painter of tapestry cartoons, was first trained by Abraham Bloemaert in Utrecht and later went to Rome. Influenced strongly by the work of Caravaggio, Honthorst soon became much in demand in Rome. He was patronised by the Marchese Vincenzo Giustiniani and by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, who was later also the patron of the sculptor Bernini. On his return to Utrecht, in 1620, Honthorst came to play a leading role in the civic life of the town, being dean of the painters' guild on four occasions between 1625 and 1629. In 1628 he spent six busy and profitable months in England at the invitation of Charles I. After his return to Utrecht he remained an internationally admired figure. His later works, especially those painted for the Court of Denmark and for the Stadholder in Holland, were dryly classicist. Honthorst died, still successful, in Utrecht in 1656.
