Romantic Painting - The Dahesh Museum

A gem case filled with diamonds, rubies, and pearls beyond price.

From the great little (relatively new) Dahesh Museum in New York. Highly recommended for anyone fond of the Musee D'Orsay in Paris, or of 19th century Academic art in general.

Here are some samples [Note: Because of the image technology, otherwise worthwhile, it's not possible to show the images directly with the usual img tag. Sorry.]

Breton - Study for The Snack, 1885

Bazzani - A Pompeian Interior, 1882 and,

Alma Tadema - Joseph, Overseer of Pharoah's Granaries, 1874
