The Poet and the Source Another Quality Print from Martin2001 Type of print: Photogravure - Original antique print Year of printing: 1892 Artist - Engraver - Publisher: Thirion - n/a - George Barrie. Condition: Excellent - Very good - Good - Fair Size of print in inches: 9.5 x 14; 1 inch = 2,54 cm. Type of paper: Thick - Heavier - Medium heavy - Thin Reverse side: Blank - With text or pictures Notes: --- Description: From the original critique: The graceful "POET AND SOURCE" is by EUGENE THIRION, who generally finds his inspiration in Biblical or mythological subjects. At the Exposition he was represented by one or two of each and a portrait; his "Moses exposed on the Nile" is in the Luxembourg. He has also essayed once, but with much less success, the inevitable "Joan of Arc and her Voices." He has been medalled four times, including once at the International Exposition of 1878, has executed, among other important commissions, two large decorative panels for the Minister of War, and was a pupil of Picot, Cabanel and Fromentin. The summary statements of these honorable and successful careers read as though the art of painting, the gathering of honors, medals and commissions, were for the first comers, but the twenty failures that go with each success do not appear in the record, and the starving and despairing painters do not generally figure at all in Universal Expositions. Even when they do, as Bonvin, their ribbon of Chevalier of the Legion of Honor covers their want of “the necessaries of life.” --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
