unfortunately for some artist it is easy to be forgotten
this is Herbert James Draper
born in London, he was in art school since little and even won a scholarship that took him to visit Paris and Rome. he won several medals and was popular for a period of time. he was mostly inspired by mythology in which he created wonderful work of art. late in his life he focused in portraits. his technique makes it possible to see the brightness of the paining from both a distance and in artificial lighting. he is considered one of the best classicist in the end of the Victorian era although he has not been studied much. two words come to mind when i see his work, delicacy and life.
*all work is property of the artist *
