George Romney

George Romney is a late seventeen hundreds English portrait artist.
His work is beautifully elegant and Victorian, so I just had to make note of my favourite pieces of his.
Below, from top to bottom is, Emma Hamilton, Mrs Musters, The Seamstress, and Miss Constable.
I just love the entire concept of these paintings. They were very fashionable in their day but also they have such relevance now, especially as tentative Renaissance themes are becoming more and more embraced in the creative and artistic world.
Note that each woman in these four portraits are all wearing rather luxurious hats. My fascination with hats continues..
