Birth Of Venus – Sandro Botticelli

Some days I just wish I could turn up to work riding a giant clam.  I think it would start the day off with some form of excitement, rather than sitting in traffic waiting to drive over a fly over which appears to have been built out of mechano.  Although turning up naked to the...

Pegasus and Muse – Ernst Fuchs

Today’s post, I unapologetically release the full force of my Greek myth geekdom. This painting has so much going on, that I really want to give you all the full breakdown of what is going on, to do the piece of work justice. Ernst Fuchs was a man of many talents, along side painting his... Continue Reading →

Orpheus and Eurydice – Frederic Leighton

Anyone who reads my blog regularly will probably know quite well now, that I am in fact a mythology geek. I love the stories of the Gods, mythical creatures and the unusual. They feed so much of what is in our culture today, be it in films, tv series, books, opera, plays, the list is... Continue Reading →

Arachne’s Punishment – Gustave Doré

Leviticus and Deuteronomy, they are funny old books aren’t they, full of things that will get you a one way ticket to eternal punishment. Some things are so inconsequential in today’s views too....like don’t eat shellfish, or don’t wear mixed textiles. Which is surprising for a book where the theme is to love thy neighbour,...

The Styx Jellyfish – Levan Songulashvili

Jellyfish are odd aren't they. Some teeny tiny like the Irukandi jellyfish, some glow in the dark and some are just outright mean like the Portuguese man o war. Jellyfish don't have brains as such, they have nerve nets, which sense environmental changes and coordinate their responses. There is a wealth of things I could... Continue Reading →

Atomic Leda – Salvador Dali

Zeus...he was a bit of a boy wasn't he? When he wasn't ruling the rest of the gods, or bringing the thunder, he was off seducing women in animal form. When I say seducing...I'm not convinced they had a lot of choice in the matter. In fairness to Zeus, he probably had a few psychological... Continue Reading →

Naiade – Roberto Ferri

Ferri, really is in my top ten artists. He hits a lot of marks for me, generally covering mythical creatures in the style of art masters, and exploring the darker side of the perception. His pictures are beautifully composed and on occasion serenely grotesque.The subject of this painting is the mythical creature the naiad. In... Continue Reading →

La Nascita Della Sirena – Roberto Ferri

If you have read any of my blogs you'll know when I was a kid I desperately wanted to be either a mermaid or a unicorn (I was a fantastical kid). Not the chinsy mermaids and unicorns which now fill the high street, but the dark and enigmatic creatures that were untameable and held wondrous... Continue Reading →

The Minotaur – George Frederic Watts

Don't you get it when your delivery of 7 virgins and 7 youths is late because UPS won't deliver to your island. All you can do is stand in your tower looking out to sea, hopeful that what ever secondary delivery company they have farmed it out to will turn up soon. Watt's captures the... Continue Reading →
