Fine Art Tuesday


Christ with Martha and Mary
Henryk Hektor Siemiradzki born 1843 in what is now the Ukraine to Polish parents. Died in 1902.

Sword Dance. This is a massive painting, 47" tall by 87" wide.

Siemiradzki's works often leave the viewer thinking "I wish I lived in a world like that". His blues tend to be highly saturated and the light suffused yet luminescent.

By the Fountain

Following the Gods

Rope Dancer


  1. max parrish comes to mind as I view these.

    Very nice!

  2. I was thinking along Mark's line. I really like those diffused, gauzy "better worlds".
