I like your choice of pictures- if I have more time, I will read all of your posts.Did you ever post about Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema? His art to paint is especially beautiful!Greetings , cornelia
Thank you Z. there are a few pictures of his on my Vic. Paintings blog but he is not classed as a Pre Raph artist.
I'm searching around for a particular painting / drawing, Hermes . . . but I can't remember who it was by and it may not be here but on your children's illustration blog.Anyway . . . as I scroll through . . . (this isn't about to be a serious comment, I'm afraid) . . . on the radio, the other day, I heard a new word a 'millihelen'. The idea is that if Helen of Troy was sufficiently beautiful to launch a thousand ships, a 'millihelen' is a measurement of sufficient beauty to launch a hundred.Lucy
Hi Lucy,can't help you with the first bit without a few more clues but according to Wikitionary:http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/millihelenthat phrase (which I've never heard before) dates back to at least 1983.
