Romantic

with 6 comments

Maybe it’s just the expression on Alex’s face and all of the hands, but this photo on the BBC Web site’s report on the Arsenal v. Chelsea match reminds me of a 19th century Romantic painting. I’m scraping O-level art history from a distance nook in my brain, but maybe a Géricault or a Delacroix..?

  1. For my money, it looks a lot like this Caravaggio
    here.

  4. Nice work Adam and Mark. You can tell by my lack of knowledge of Caravaggio that I didn’t do that period at school; we were all about the Neo-Classicists and Romanticists.

  6. Up Lincoln way, it felt like we spent a whole year looking the meaning of “The Death of Marat.”
