what this blog is for

This blog is an offshoot of my Livejournal Strange Tears community. The subject will be art and literature of the 19th century, or at least the period from Waterloo to the outbreak of the Great War (1815-1914).

More specifically the focus will be on movements such as the Pre-Raphaelites, the Symbolists and the Decadents. I'll also be posting about the later Romantics and the academic painters of the 19th century. Various manifestations of the gothic will undoubtedly get a mention.

You won't find any posts dealing with the Impressionists or any art movement that worshipped the false god of realism.
