Classical painting

I went to the Tate Britain the other day, which is my favourite gallery in London. All of the paintings there are absolutely amazing, but I came across one that I've never really noticed before.


Francis Danby, (1793-1861) 'The wood nymph's hymn to the rising sun'

This is so beautiful! I never thought I'd like such a dark painting but all of the elements work together so beautifully. It must be the soft glow of the rising sun; the warmth of its colour and the power it has over all of the other elements of the painting. A snap-shot of a precious moment at dawn. Definately a fave <3
