John William Waterhouse, The Lady of Shalott, 1892
I was going through the images I have saved on my computer, and it occurred to me that I have a lot of Victorian art. Most of the works I have saved were executed between 1870 and 1910. I also have a lot of art books (not enough!) and counted ten that are specifically Victorian or Edwardian. There is a distinct bias towards mythological and Medieval themes. So, does anyone else have a preference for a particular period of art?

Any period where people looked like people, instead of a lampstand.

4th period, 8th grade. There was this really cute girl in the class whom I had a huge crush on, and… Oh, that's not what you meant?

Just put a favourite of mine up link
but I can't really say I have a favourite period as my likes seam all over the place.

The Renaissance, in particular, Bosch and Bruegel.

Easier to identify periods (and artists) I dislike. Have a wide scope of art I like, but no one in particular.
Speaking of art, I am still on my quest for the Holy Grail of artwork, which is a black velvet painting of the dogs playing poker with Elvis, Martin Luther King Jr. and Willie Nelson.
If anyone has any leads, let me know, but I have my answers for when asked "What is your quest?"

I'm a fan of Impressionist art myself. I also like the works of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

I like the Dutch masters best.
But I do have a soft spot for Bosch.
