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.

In the Corner of the Villa

In the Corner of the Villa, Sir Edward Poynter

seems a lot like an Alma-Tadema though the tint of the painting isn't the same

also, for K, note that Poynter was also an uncle to Rudyard Kipling (I have been reading about the MacDonald sisters)

That explains the pre-Raphaelite connection, doesn't it? I mean, your remark about it resembling more of an Alma-Tadema.
