The trouble with admiring classic paintings

It is nigh unto impossible to find someone who might have the skills to do a furry version if them. While my present postings are all fairly explicit, I do enjoy the muted sensuality you get with some classic paintings of yore.

While I have seen one artist that captures this brushstroke detailed style, they are not open to working with cubs, which is a shame. There are so many old paintings that I think would look lovely done in a furry style (plus I would have an original work of art based off an older work).

Warning: Links below to some classic paintings I happen to like. All contain some measure of nudity though none are overtly explicit and are the types of works you would find in a museum.

My current favourite:
Eero Järnefelt's Children playing

I happen to enjoy the expression on the girls face. She seems to be having a ton of fun, The boy is there, but understated. You do not see his face, and he seems to be struggling with the wrestling. While they are nude, you see nothing overt there, just two kids having fun.

Implied Loss:

There are a few images out there, usually of a maiden with one breast bared and some sort of disarray to either her garb or her surroundings. Reading one site online, they made the suggestion that the bared breast was to show that the girl was nubile and therefor of age for the act of sex. The disarray was likely that she had had a tussle and lost her virginity. Two examples of it were given that include broken jugs, a feminine object broken - allegories to the hymen.

I wonder who commissioned the paintings. Some Don Juan who had conquered them?

I'd love to see something similar. Symbols are a strong theme in art.

The one artist who did an example of the jug has some younger girls in disarray. I wonder even further about his patron.

Mind you there are a great many paintings that capture this art style and are cute without any of the faint sensuality contained within these examples.

I understand your viewpoints here, and I actually hope to one day make things comparable to classical paintings, despite the art I do today--hopefully with a few more years of experience I'll be closer.  Those are beautiful pieces, incidentally.

shares a similar sentiment with you on the painterly look, as well--it's unfortunate that the artists who go for it on this site so far are few and far between.

Oh I do hope I didn't sound dismissive of your and others art on here. I do enjoy it quite a lot. (eyes  burgeoning save folder)

I was introduced to most of those pieces via a neat blog called children in art history, which usually posts at least once a day. The items go from modern hyper-realism to kitsch, to the formalized paintings of the 1500s.

I shall have to peer deep into bunnyfoxglove 's favourite folder and see if I can spot any gems for the fav-ing. ;)

Oh, no, not at all.  It was more of a side note since it actually is something I've wanted to pursue for a while now.  There are a couple of artists I follow on pixiv and other places who pleasingly combine a refined traditional painted style with the more simplistic manga characteristics (though they lean to the more erotic side), and I'm somewhat aiming to follow in their footsteps as a slightly nearer goal.  The artists in question can be searched on booru sites with tags "Haimura_Kiyotaka" and "Alphonse"
They aren't furry artists, and I'll admit I only became a furry artist out of necessity for this site, myself, but I have grown attached enough to enjoy drawing them greatly, and I kind of look forward to developing a more detailed style for characters with fur.

And thank you for sharing the blog; it'll be an interesting thing to browse in more depth when I get the chance.
