Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.
- Sir Joshua Reynolds
We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.

Eye Candy for Today: Winter View by Charles Leickert

Posted by Charley Parker at 5:37 pm


If you’re on the east coast of the U.S. it’s a little warm today. Cool off with “Winter View” by 19th century Dutch artist Charles Leickert.

From this past exhibit at Rijksmuseum.

    Leickert, a dialect name, taken from the village Liedekerke, North West of Brussels.
    “Liekercke” (Lie(de) = little hill. Kercke = church. Church on the hill, dated as early as 1092. Charles Leickert was orphaned.
    Thanks again, Charley.
