TT #26: goddess & fantasy art

Lady of Shalott by Waterhouse

Thirteen favourite goddess & fantasy artists

I love art in all its aspects. For this TT I listed (in no particular order) 13 of my favourite artists, especially in the field of goddess and fantasy art. Some do more than that, but that's how I got to know them. I give examples, but all the websites are worth exploring!


Links to other Thursday Thirteens!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

    My all time favorites are the works of Froud. This one in particular:
    And Boreas by John William Waterhouse. (

    Interesting. I couldn't come up with one fantasy artist let alone 13. Thanks for the early morning enlightenment. Have a great day.

  7. Oh, these are wonderful! I particularly liked Sabrina the Ink Witch, Jessica Galbreth, Paulina Stuckey-Cassidy, and Howard David Johnson--all for different reasons.

    Thanks so much for introducing me to such lovely artwork.

  8. Very interesting list! I especially like John William Waterhouse's Lady of Shalott. I always show that one to my students when we study Tennyson's poem.

  9. What a wonderful TT - thanks a lot for sharing =) I love all the pictures...

    My TT is up, too. Please stop by @ Coffee2go - Thanks =)

  10. Fabulous list of Goddess & Fantasy Art authors. I know some of them, but not I'll check em out!

    Happy WW one day late! :-)

  11. John William Waterhouse is one of my favourites. I have so many of his posters around my house it's crazy. The Lady lives above my bed. :)

  12. I am sooooo gonna come back and enjoy this properly when I have time. I love all this stuff.

  13. Tink - what a gorgeous picture. I love fantasy art. have a clanader in my kitchen from a friend w/ beautiful fantasy pictures. Sometimes makes me wish to be a fariy in another realm...

    Excitement. Suspense. Passion

  14. Oh I love these, and I love the image you posted, of Waterhouse...and his painting I believe of Ophelia. I used to have some of his posters and I still love him. Have you ever seen some of these paintings in person?

    You and I both posted about art today, what a coincidence...although we have taken notice of very different art movements. In America in the 1950's there were a group of painters who reacted to the Romantic period of art...such as some of the artists, particularily Waterhouse...and did not representational paintings and sculpture.

    Interesting though, because they couldn't have done what they wanted unless they were in fact embracing and reacting to these kinds of art pieces...

    Waterhouse and the Romantics were quite revolutonary in their times. They rejected the uptight habits they saw in Victorian sociaty...looking for a traditional and conservative anti-industrial kind of thought and existence...really not that different from the painters I have posted about, but very different ways to make the images.

    Hope you have a chance to drop by! And be warned it's a terribly long post, but if you liek art, you might enjoy what I wrote and quoted.

    Cheers have a beautiful weekend Tink!!!

  15. Wow, I have never heard of those names. It was pretty interesting.

  16. Thanks for your visit & comment at our TT: Purrchance To Dream

    We like Brian Froud's work a lot, and Waterhouse, too!
    Happy TT!
    Morgen & the kitties
