I used to browse a blog full of graphs and charts (Jesse’s Café Américain), but on the periphery were old posters and advertisements of a bygone era. I think this added something to the website. It brought some humanity - we are humans, after all.. and depending on our tastes, can appreciate such things.
I’m showing a couple of paintings I’ve found visually pleasing, again from the Romanticism category.
Hans Gude, Fra Hardanger, 1847.
George Fennel Robson, Grasmere, 1830.
Thomas Cole, The Picnic, 1846.
Bierstadt, Looking Up the Yosemite Valley, 1863.
