Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Prints by Belgian artist Octavia Campotosto, daughter of painter Henry Campotosto, subject of yesterday’s post. Not finding much else about Octavia in terms of biographical detail except that she visited Italy and showed her pictures from 1871 to 1874 at the Royal Academy, flourishing from 1871 to 1892.
Many thanks to Jonathan Bohman, @BohmanArt on Twitter, who saw my post of yesterday and told me about the first image and the artist. Only finding the two prints, the other being in the British Museum.
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.
