William Clarke Wontner (1857-1930)

Some weeks ago I was surfing through the Internet, when I found some images of Wontner´s paitings. I didn´t know him, but I´m happy I found him. Wontner was an English Academical Classical painter with a touch of Romanticism and an eye to the Orient. His women are really elegant and feminine, almost ephemeral. The Orient theme gives a dreamy sensation. Enjoy the view 😀

Alcune settimane fa stavo girovagando in interner, quando mi sono imbattuta in alcune immagini di quadi di Wotner. Non lo conoscevo, ma sono felice di averlo trovato. Wontner era inglese ed un pittore accademico classico, con un tocco di stile romantico e un occhio all´oriente. Le sue donne sono davvero eleganti e femminili, quasi efimere. E il tema orientale crea un´atmosfera sognante. Buona visione 😀
