Jan van Eyck has been one of the more prominent early Netherlandish painters during his time. He has had many famous works, however one of his more interesting and questionable pieces is The Arnolfini Portrait. There is much to be desired in this painting by the great van Eyck. Van Eyck has been a master painter most of his career, but in this painting he is able to show how his excellent painting skills can bring this painting to life. The Arnolfini Portrait, which measures 82 × 59.5 cm (32.3 × 23.4 in) is an oil painting on oak panel dated 1434.
In 1909, Emerson Hough’s work, 54-40 or Fight was also illustrated by Keller. Both paintings are based upon a romantic theme, set up in different settings. Keller always painted from using live models, as he did with Hough’s and Emerson’s novel illustrations. Arthur Keller was a very talented artist; he painted using live models, and worked well with charcoal, acrylics, oils, pastels, watercolor and pencil. Keller was able to bring a realistic look to his paintings, using shadows, patterns, details, and shading.
The most remarkable and well-known poetry of Paradise Lost was written by the author of John Milton and the illustrations of Paradise Lost were illustrated by the artist named William Blake. During the Romantic Era, William Blake was considered an influential figure in the history of the painters.

Therefore, one of the great painters of the Romantic Era, William Blake, inspired many of the great poets with his unique water color paintings, such as Paradise Lost by John Milton.
Vincent Van Gogh was born in 1853. He would grow to be one of the greatest artists of his era. Van Gogh utilized a variety of colors on the spectrum, giving his paintings life. He often used the art style of impressionists in that his paintings are depicted as he sees fit, and not how they are naturally viewed (Cliff). His paintings consisted of complex brush strokes that would vary in the amounts of paint used.
They also wore fishnet stockings for their legs but also used it as a real fabric for other parts of the body creating tee-shirts for men, tops for women which were worn with dark underwear. Goth fashion used conventional but also unconventional fabrics like velvet, leather, vinyl, nylon, lace, pvc, rubber and latex. Concerning the shoes, most Goths wore heavy shoes with big platforms, women could wear high heel shoes which could been thin like stilettos or heavier like the rangers’ style or Dr. Martens’ shoes.

Although violent, the miniature presents the moment of apprehension, the moment before the impact of the sword and the resulting death through which one leaves the mortal realm for the divine.

Millet settled down in Barbizon in 1849. has often been described as the initiator of the Impressionist movement, and indeed he did develop many of the ideas that we saw in the movement as it developed. It could be said that Lowry painted landscape in an Impressionist fashion as well, as his pictures are painted in such a way as to make the viewer aware of the message behind the picture rather than the actual picture which has been depicted using brushstrokes from a man of incredible painting skill. A painting by has been included with this essay, along with a reproduction of one of Lowry's pictures.
Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863), a famous romantic artist, expressed individualism through his moving paintings, such as Liberty Leading the People. His use of expressive brushstrokes, and exotic colors help to accurately depict the context of the paintings and allow his viewers to experience a strong aesthetically pleasing experience. Realist artists, in the second half of the 19th century, were inspired by what was in front of them, the beauty of the objective world. Gustave Courbet (1819-1877), the legendary realist artist conveyed individualism through many of his paintings. Courbet was an individualist himself.
I also believe the first painting had a lot of emotion showed in the Lady of Shallot’s face and you could almost feel the pain and confusion she was going through at the time. Another thing that I found interesting while researching this painting was not only did Waterhouse paint three paintings titled the Lady of Shallot, there were many other artists that titled their painting The Lady of Shallot, one example would be William Holman Hunt painting that was finished in 1905. I found it amazing that one story can make such an impact in the art world during the Enlightenment period.
