BBC Arts & Crafts

From BBC's website, I found this enjoyable page on how to decorate in the Arts & Crafts style.

Waterhouse documentary

Thanks again to a post on Art Magick for this info. There is a new 50-minute Waterhouse documentary online! It's sublime to watch for anyone who enjoys the work of this brilliant artist. I was elated the whole time I was watching.

Note: The beginning of the film isn't in English, but the rest is.

Rossetti's Wombat

Thanks to a post on the ArtMagick forums for this tip. There's a new book out on the subject of Rossetti's pet wombat. I love the idea of a book that approaches the Brotherhood from such a quirky angle! Hopefully I can obtain this book somehow.

Bert Barelds' Waterhouse Photography

A huge thank you to Bert who informed me of the artist who did the photography in the Waterhouse exhibition video a few entries down. Apparently he has an exhibition in Groningen. There's also a website showing several of his Waterhouse art photographs, but sadly I have a hard time navigating it entirely, since it's in another language.

I so wish I lived close enough to see more of his photographs (and selfishly, wish I could have participated in his project!!)

A Beauty or a Beast of a New Year?

Yeah, it's a pun :)

Happy New Year, TBN readers! Today I thought I'd share with you a book I've recently read and adored. It's a picture book of Beauty and the Beast illustrated by Angela Barrett. Several reviews of her work use the words "Pre-Raphaelite inspired", and I loved how very moody and beautiful every artwork was in the book, but I felt this image especially reminded me of the PRB:

The image of Beauty's two sisters warming their feet by the fire looks very much inspired by Rossetti's sketches of his dear wife, Lizzie Siddal. Yes?

Happy New Year, one and all!
