Found this rather creative montage of close-ups of some of the famous female portraits in art history and thought I'll share them here. You can find the list of all the paintings and painters on the montage here, but may I suggest a rather more stimulating exercise of identifying them on your own ?
collecting colours over a cup of coffee...
If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

PS- For my musical taste ( which is not the best informed in classical music) I find Bach can be slightly jarry esp. if it's very early in the day. So, I suggest a warm and soothing cup of green tea as you watch.
