Paintings by Matthew W. Cornell

Matthew W. Cornell was born in 1964, Fairfield, California and went to college in Long Beach, accounting for his interest in the water, but he has extensively traveled the United States by road. His photorealistic paintings capture the specific architecture and landscapes of small towns. Each scene seems frozen in the moment the artist witnessed it, as Cornell paints time-specific elements such as snow or the sunlight of the magic hour into his work. His paintings of ocean waves are more focused in scale, yet they depict each crest and ripple of the water in the same hyperrealist photographic detail as his landscapes.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home - run with us.

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.
