|Lovers in a Sleigh Alfred von Wierusz Kowalski|
Ah, how lovely. There is something eminently classy about rosy-cheeked fondling in the back of a sleigh. Well, it looks more comfy than a Ford Fiesta and a damn-sight more warm. Also it has the added bonus of travelling, which means the horse will get you where you are going while you canoodle in the back. You really can't do that in a Ford Fiesta. I imagine she's say 'Is that a Toblerone in your pocket, or are you just pleased to see me..?' I'm in two minds whether or not I'd prefer it to be a Toblerone. Oh dear me, I must be getting old. Mind you, you also should never underestimate my love of Toblerone. Okay, so what I want for Christmas is a gentleman who is pleased to see me and has brought me a Toblerone. Gosh, that would be lovely...
Today's pressie is not Toblerone, but something for your walls. Due to the wonders of the internet and the work of various museums and art galleries, it's now possible to get vast quantities of paintings as high quality prints these days. Partly due to the photography that was done for the PCF catalogues, museums are able to offer wonderful paintings from their collections to hang in yours. Mr Walker loves the Russell-Cotes page (which he watches over) and is always telling me what is selling well and what's new. You too can have the most famous left boob in Pre-Raphaelite art hanging on your wall. Classy.
Most museums have their own Art on Demand sites, located off their home pages but for the sake of family loyalty, the Russell-Cotes one is located here : http://www.russellcotesartshop.co.uk/index.cfm
Can I suggest a print of Maria Virgo by May Cooksey? Very proper for this time of year.
Buy the beautiful Maria Virgo here.
See you tomorrow!
