Mond – Moon

by mistersoto

Probably one of the most rewarding things about blogging, amongst reading lots of great posts and discovering new blogs, is that of the discoveries that come along of new art or writing to post on, its been quite an experience to stumble upon the art of Hans Thoma, 1839 – 1924, born in Bernau in the Black Forest, looking through his paintings on wikicommons media makes you want to pack up your bags and head off to explore them. Here is his picture Mond – Moon, from a series of his on the planets, there are so many great pictures in his gallery on wikicommons that it’s difficult to choose one to post on. His sequence of paintings of the months are spectacular, maybe a post forthcoming.
