Dante Gabriel Rossetti | Lovesight / Visione d'Amore


Lovesight

When do I see thee most, beloved one?
When in the light the spirits of mine eyes
Before thy face, their altar, solemnize
The worship of that Love through thee made known?
Or when in the dusk hours (we two alone)
Close-kissed and eloquent of still replies
Thy twilight-hidden glimmering visage lies,
And my soul only sees thy soul its own?

Dante Gabriel Rossetti | Love Enthroned / Amore sul Trono


Love Enthroned

I marked all kindred Powers the heart finds fair:-
Truth, with awed lips; and Hope, with eyes upcast;
And Fame, whose loud wings fan the ashen Past
To signal-fires, Oblivion's flight to scare;
And Youth, with still some single golden hair
Unto his shoulder clinging, since the last
Embrace wherein two sweet arms held him fast;

Dante Gabriel Rossetti | Love's Testament / Testamento d'amore


Love's Testament

O thou who at Love's hour ecstatically
Unto my heart dost evermore present,
Clothed with his fire, thy heart his testament;
Whom I have neared and felt thy breath to be
The inmost incense of his sanctuary;
Who without speech hast owned him, and, intent
Upon his will, thy life with mine hast blent,
And murmured, “I am thine, thou'rt one with me!”

Adam de Coster | A young woman holding a distaff before a lit candle


Vhis painting is emblematic of the refined and dramatic nocturnes that form the small catalogue of works by Adam de Coster. Benedict Nicolson was the first scholar to isolate a corpus of works by this Flemish candlelight painter in a series of publications.
He based this group around Lucas Vorsterman’s engraving after a lost work by de Coster, which depicted tric-trac players and a musician illuminated by two burning candles on a table.

Unpublished until its sale in 1992 when Professor Leonard J. Slatkes identified the work as by Adam de Coster, the present work remains one of the most significant additions in recent decades to the artist’s catalogue.

Georg Anton Rasmussen | Seascape painter


Georg Anton Rasmussen (1842-1914) was Norwegian artist, known for land-and seascape paintings.
Georg Anton Rasmussen was born in Stavanger in 1842, but studied with the German painter Oswald Achenbach (1827-1905)** in Düsseldorf.
Consequently, several of G.A. Rasmussen’s German subjects originate in the Düsseldorf area, but there are also themes from Berlin to where he moved in 1899.
His landscapes were extremely popular, as G.A. Rasmussen’s eye for colour was more powerful and personal than was normally the case in the Germany of the age.
