So many details ! I wonder how much time the needed for paintings like that ! I’m always interested in the clothes they were wearing so many years ago. All made by hand !
That’s the beauty of art from the past. It shows you (often in detail) the tastes and designs of a time long gone. It has been said that Giovanni Paolo Paniini (https://sundayeveningartgallery.com/2020/05/30/giovanni-paolo-panini/) painted both current and mythical landscapes of ancient Rome, and is great to see images of something that actually existed at the moment he painted, rather than a modernist’s guess.
So much work has gone into creating these paintings 🙂
To know that that’s how King Henry VIII really looked like — even if enhanced, it’s amazing. Isn’t it?
