Artist of The Week! Part 1

More at

Hello again!

So begins a new series of posts I will be doing! I will share a different artist of the week! I will keep it pretty simple and share some selected works, starting with…

Pierre-Paul Prud’hon


Pierre Paul Prud'hon.
Justice and Divine Vengeance pursuing Crime

Pierre-Paul Prud’hon is known as a draftsman and painter, whose style bridged Neoclassicism and Romanticism (I’m a huge fan of both of these styles!). He was influenced by the works of Correggio and Leonardo da Vinci (who is one of my favorite artists ever!) after spending time in Italy during his younger years. Here are a few examples of his work, enjoy!

The soul breaking the bonds that attach to the land

I especially love this piece The soul breaking the bonds that attach to the land. The use of light here and the overall dreaminess of the work is just gorgeous in my opinion.
