Of Art and other Curiosities




Truth lies just beneath the surface by “Sarmati”

In Slavic mythology, the rusalki were fish-women, who lived at the bottom of rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the bank and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerize them, then leading them away to the river floor to their deaths.

When I saw the notification that you were following, it felt like a unicorn had passed through my line of sight! Your art is incredible and I'm super jealous of your talent and the amount of free time you have to make art! :D

 punjabchild - aw, thanks! I honestly thought I followed you a long time ago, since I keep seeing your posts on my dash! :D

Thank you so much for your kind words! I actually don’t have the time to make art, I just ignore my studies and work. (Kids, don’t do this at home.)

Posters for the Palais Garnier’s Bal Masques, 1892-1900. 

The posters were designed by Jules Chéret (possibly with the exception of that last one, it looks different in style). Jules Chéret is called “Master of Belle Époque poster art”, and as well as for the Palais Garnier he also designed for Moulin Rouge and Folies Bergère, French restaurants, products and exhibitions. 

The above posters are from 1892, 1893, 1894, 1896, 1897, 1898 (?), 1899 (?) and 1900. Anyone seen the eventual poster for 1895?
