There is Lorraine and there is Alsatia.

Elsa▀ und Lothringen.

Callot and Lorrain are both from the french speaking part of Lorraine.

I am from the german speaking part.

Lorraine (region) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thank you for the info, Lorraine sounds an interesting place - there's something very special about borderlands. There were such regions in and near Poland before WW2, sadly their uniqueness was completely destroyed.
You say Nietsche liked Lorraine? Poor Lorraine.;)

The weird vibe of Callot somehow reminded me of this Polish Jewish artist from the Ukrainian schtetl of Drohobycz (one of those borderlands).

Bruno Schulz (1892 -1942)

He was first of all an amazing writer (poetic prose eg. Street of Crocodiles, Cinnamon Shops) but his obsessive drawings are pretty unique. The folk in his hometown must have been really open minded to make him teacher of art at the local gimnazjum.:D

An SS-man shot Schultz in the street.

My favourite British artists were Victorian and Edwardian artists who did lovely pictures of boating on the Thames, mostly appearing in the Illustrated London News or other papers. one is Arthur Garratt, I have a lovely big print of his picture of boats in Molesey Lock. some of the others I can't identify, I can't decipher the signatures on their pictures.

If you find something to post Louise I'll appreciate it. Some of those retro prints and watercolours are great to look at.

There seems very little of his work online, no landscapes at least. I found this nice portrait:

I wonder if this is pastel. The English were always exquiste with this awfully difficult medium. Hardly any Polish artists could work in pastel, Wyspiański (my avatar) was one.

that's a nice portrait. I did find a copy of the Molesey lock picture, but I don't know how to put pictures on here. I might ask no.2 son when he gets in, he knows about this sort of thing, maybe he can help me get them on. Another picture I am very fond of is Thames Swans by Thomas Brooks, another Victorian artist.

Thank you for Bruno Schulz, Antonia.

I know just what you mean, I used to struggle with it for months. :)

In fact it's quite simple:

1. Find the picture
2. Click with the right mouse button and you'll see "information about the picture"
3. Click on this and you'll come up with the address - copy it
4. Paste the address into the "Insert Image" icon over your message box

At least that's how it works for me. Sorry for the lame explanations, I'm not sure how to put it in English.

PS. Lucky you to have the boy still at home. :sad2:

About borderlands, you have the marvellous Marek Krajewski.

I hear he has many fans. I haven't read him, but perhaps I should - I love his idea of moving between Breslau/Wrocław and Lwˇw/Lviv. It's great he delves into the German past of Wrocław, I'm not surprised it fascinates him. I'd love some Ukrainian writer to delve into the Polish past of Lviv...

If anyone can contribute I'm awfully interested. Especially in artists who are known in their countries, but perhaps not internationally.

I'd be particularly happy to hear about painters/sculptors/photographers/craftsmen etc. from:
Bulgaria
Romania
Greece
Croatia
Turkey
Serbia
Bosnia
Russia
Australia
Austria
USA
Portugal
Germany
Bohemia
Slovakia
Ireland
Sweden
Lithuania
Latvia
Estonia
Scotland...

everywhere, really. If I didn't name France, Spain, Germany, Italy or England it's only because prominent artists from these countries have generally received wide recognition. On the other hand, as Isleifson's post showed there are fascinating artists in those places whose name or work I've never come across.

Also, it would be great to see artists from Asia, Middle East or Africa...
