    The Coming Storm by George Inness, 1879, oil on canvas, 27 1/4 x 41 3/4. Are you as bored of pretty outdoor painting scenes as I am?

  • A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

    The Power of Portrait Painting In a lot of ways the art world can be a little like a trend-crazed teenybopper.

  • Will You Please Put Some Clothes On?

    Portrait of Queen Elizabeth I by Nicholas Hilliard (attributed), 1585. I can only imagine the excitement and thrill of sitting for any one of the great portrait painters in history such as Bronzino, Velazquez, and Sargent.
