Landscape Paintings by Renato Muccillo

Renato Muccillo is a Professional Artist and Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.  

Renato landscapes are often compared to those of Dutch masters and 19th-century English artists. This traditional approach acts to highlight and compliment the artist’s subject matter as Muccillo’s subject matter reminds us how frequently today’s landscape is affected and appropriated by man and industry. Mesmerized at first by the luxurious colors and near miraculous use of light, on closer inspection, the viewer notices the culvert, the pilings, the log booms, or the distant plume of smoke stacks. Even the farms that serve as subject matter for his paintings leave the viewer wondering if they are viable or abandoned as there is no sign of human life only the marks left behind by man and machine.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
