"Ballerina". By ~ Herbert James Draper ~ 1854 - 1920.

Herbert James Draper

Herbert James Draper - best known for his dramatic and romantic paintings of sweeping mythological and literary subjects. He was a painter of beautiful, romantic subjects and considered a latter pre-raphaelite style artist. His work displays a keen sense of drama and color, with subjects or entire art works depicted in a singular, closely related color . Although almost reaching a point of being monochromatic, Draper's color style is clearly defined and brings about a dream like feeling. The painting Lament for Icarus is a primary example of Draper's color use.
