Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Getting out and about with British painter Charles Sims (1873-1928). The son of a costume manufacturer, Sims studied art in Britain and then at the Académie Julian in Paris. After losing his son in the first world war, he switched to abstract apocalyptic backdrops. The images in the post are all from before that time when his backgrounds were mostly sunlit and cheery.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
