Something for the weekend, Sir? Well, that well might be a selection of the best by Sir Edward Poynter (1836-1919). Sometimes referred to as "The Poor Man's Leighton", he was prone to lapse into the "chocolate box" style and, like Alma-Tadema, was susceptible to the charge of blatant titillation but some of his work is worth a gander (Hyperion thought so too when re-packaging Vernon Handley's Bantock recordings)...

If Edward Poynter got your blood-pressure up and caused an attack of the vapours, here's something a little different - the "genre painter" par excellence William Powell Frith (1819-1909), best known for his trilogy of vast social canvas included below*. The depiction of the Private View at the Royal Academy (which took place the day before the annual exhibition opened to the public) includes Leighton (centre with back turned), Oscar Wilde (with his note-book in from of the boy in green) and Millais (extreme right in the top hat)...

Let's start the week with one of the finest - John Everett Millais (1829-1896). One-time pioneering Pre-Raphaelite, later a pillar of the Establishment and criticised for "selling-out" to commercialism. He headed the Royal Academy as successor to Leighton in 1896, but died after only a couple of months in his new post...

I just thought that perhaps it might be nice to have something to look at of a night other than Coronation Street or the eternally-depressing news-headlines...

I agree with cilgwyn. These paintings are so atmospheric, especially Ophelia. And they are somehow so evocative of their era.

While I am still in thrall to the news headlines (albeint on the web, rather than on the television) I haven't watched Coronation Street since Ena Sharples left...

Well, I suppose it's time for some Alma-Tad aka the Dutch-born Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912)...

Thank you, John. Another wonderful collection. Alma-Tadema's use of light is breathtaking. I have to look at the pictures for quite a long while, otherwise I tend to be left just with a feeling of amazment at the technnical tour de force which each represents but with an under-appreciation of the beauties that result. These picures really are exquisite. The man was certainly a genius.

You got that right! I see this on Wikipedia:

In 1960, the Newman Gallery firstly tried to sell, then give away (without success) one of his most celebrated works, The Finding of Moses (1904). The initial purchaser had paid 5,250 for it on its completion, and subsequent sales were for 861 in 1935, 265 in 1942, and it was "bought in" at 252 in 1960 (having failed to meet its reserve), but when the same picture was auctioned at Christies in New York in May 1995, it sold for 1.75 million. On 4 November 2010 it was sold for $35,922,500 to an undisclosed bidder at Sotheby's New York, a new record both for an Alma-Tadema work and for a Victorian painting. On 5 May 2011 his The Meeting of Antony and Cleopatra: 41 BC was sold at the same auction house for $29.2 million.

Phew! Seems it'a all a question of timing.  ;)

Today it's John Anster Fitzgerald (1832-1906), the Victorian fairy painter (a genre all by itself) par excellence: working mainly in waterolour, his painstaking pictures took such a long time to complete that they are often difficult to date...

Similar in interests to Fitzgerald, if a tad more unstable, was Richard Dadd (1817-1886): probably suffering from paranoid-schizophrenia he murdered his father in 1843 and spent the last forty-three years of his life in the Bethlehem ("Bedlam") and Broadmoor hospitals, where he was encouraged to paint...

I suppose the most well known "fairy painter. The sad,lurid story obviously creates interest! I think there has been the odd radio & tv program about him? Looking at the fairy painting here,I don't think he was the best one?! But they have a certain intensity about them. To my knowledge,The Fairy Feller's Masterstroke,is the most famous and reproduced,of all? If fairies really,did exist,I think they'd look like the ones in that painting?

Thank you. Burne-Jones's stuff looks pretty good to me. All right, I can see just from the pictures you have shown us that he does tend to repeat certain tropes but all artists, in whichever medium, tend to have 'fingerprints' that identify them. Think of Vivaldi concertos, for example. Put a brush in the hand of the critic and see if he can do any better than Mr Burne-Jones...

What a fascinating and beautiful set of pictures. I wonder if there is the influence of William Blake in there somewhere? Although otherwise, the style comes across as very individual to my very non-specialist eyes.

I was trying to recall where I had heard the name Samuel Palmer before and then I remembered that one of his paintings had inspired an orchestral piece of the same name - "The Valley of Vision" by Philip Sawyers.

Yes, there's definitely inspiration from Blake in Palmer's work...
