A small note before I get to the paintings.
We've had a few instances of people posting their own art here. The communnity info clearly states that this is against the rules. From the Info page:
"1. DO NOT POST YOUR OWN ART HERE Such posts will be deleted by the mods and members who repeatedly disregard this rule and post their own art will be banned. As lovely as your art may be, this community was created so that people could share art by established, well-known artists; artists whose work you may see in museums and galleries."
Please stick to the rules so that the community can continue to run smoothly and so that we mods don't have to ruffle our pretty little brows.
Now, on to the art of
The Execution of Lady Jane Grey
Cromwell and Charles I
Cardinal Mazarin dying.
Jeune Mere et ses Enfants
