Interior with Fisherwives

I spend far too much time sifting through on-line art galleries and images.  We have unprecedented access to these things as never before in history.  I recommend, for your sanity, take a little time to use these resources and exit from the world of sensational news and other half-cocked garbage spewed out by the electronic ton.

Aloïs Boudry (12 August 1851, Ypres – 27 November 1938, Antwerp) was a Belgian painter known for his portraits, still lifes, and interiors.  Click for larger image.

The Dutch (or in this case Belgian-born) masters are not a bad place to start for some relatively recent history.  Honestly, this is not a favorite of mine but I really love the interactive ladies.  Okay, I’m really in it for the packbasket.  These images, showing the way people actually lived, take me back in time.

  1. Lol! You’re funny, the first thing I zoomed in on was the pack basket to see how it was made. It’s one of the main reasons I love old paintings, the detail is so well executed you can see how things were made.
