    Vintage Art

    .



    I like vintage art.

    Yesterday I bought a nice framed print of this at an estate sale for $5.








    I had never seen this print before, so I looked it up on line.

    It is by Victorian artist, Charles Burton Barber.

    The Victorian period is very interesting.
    It was sentimental but also a time of impressive social reforms, especially regarding the welfare of children.
    I think this painting expresses that sentimentality and a concern for the feelings of a little child.
    We still think of a powerful man as a born leader
    and a powerful woman as an anomaly - Margaret Atwood.

    yep picture fetched over half a million US dollars at christies 11 years ago!
    whenever I look at my glass of beer it's always half full - that's a good cue to top it up and just keep goin forward as usual - hate to see it empty!
