edwardian age


Lionel Walden (1861-1933, United States)

Landscapes and seascapes 2

Walden was an American landscape painter active in Hawaii, Cornwall, Wales and France. Particularly known for his seascapes, and depictions of Hawaii, which constitute the first noteworthy attempts by a professional artist to portray the region in painting.

John Singer Sargent was an Italian-born American painter whose portraits of the wealthy and privileged provide an enduring image of Edwardian-age society.

During his career, he created roughly 900 oil paintings and more than 2,000 watercolors, as well as countless sketches and charcoal drawings. 

Sargent enjoyed international acclaim as a portrait painter, although not without controversy and some critical reservation; an early submission to the Paris Salon, his “Portrait of Madame X”, was intended to consolidate his position as a society painter, but it resulted in scandal instead.

Biographers once portrayed him as a staid reticent individual; however recent scholarship has suggested that he was a private, complex and passionate man with a homosexual identity that shaped his art.

Sargent had a long and intense romantic friendship with Albert de Belleroche, whom he met in 1882, and who later went on to marry: a surviving drawing hints that Sargent may have used him as a model for Madame X.

And I think that Mr. Sargent  was a very handsome man with a sexy beard.

Apologies in advance if this ask sounds extreme at any level, but I'm trying to attempt the decades challenge and since you start back in 1890 you are gonna have the same clothes till about 1910 ish... what I'm asking is if you can leave like a link dump to your absolute must have Victorian/Edwardian clothing for ts4?? I'm struggling tremulously for finding clothing on top of staying interested in the challenge

No worries. :) I’m the admin on this custom content finds blog for the history challenge and since one of the stages in it is the Victorian period (industrial age according the rules) me and a few of other simmers have collected all the time appropriate custom clothes we have found on this tag. And I think you can also find good clothing in the 1920′s tag too since Edwardian age is situated between those two. I hope this helps. 


He’s the sort who can’t know anyone intimately, least of all a woman. He doesn’t know what a woman is. He wants you for a possession, something to look at, like a painting or an ivory box. Something to own and to display. He doesn’t want you to be real, and to think and to live. He doesn’t love you. But I love you. I want you to have your own thoughts and ideas and feelings, even when I hold you in my arms.” -George, A Room with a View (1985)

Very lavish fashions, I would date this about 1910.
