20 Historic Black and White Photos Colorized

One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color. All of them are highly skilled digital artists that use a combination of historical reference material and a natural eye for colour. When we see old photos in black and white, we sometimes forget that life back then was experienced in the same vibrant colours that surround us today.

This gallery of talented artists helps us remember that :) Below you will find a collection of some of the highest rated colorized images to date on r/ColorizedHistory.

Jeho život ovlivnila tragická smrt přítele George Dyera, který se otrávil v 70. letech.

Svůj původ odvozoval od rodiny filozofa Francise Bacona. V roce 1998 o něm John Maybury natočil životopisný film nazvaný Láska prokletá (Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon).

Pat Pattison's Lyric Pages

Kid stuff. Songwriters are the ones who really suffer, because whether or not we're happily married, we are eternally condemned to keep searching for the perfect match every time we join a word to a note. Sometimes we find it, sometimes we don't. And even when a match is perfect, we know we'll be back on the streets one syllable/note later, eyes open, determined, hopeful. Perhaps this chapter will offer some succor to the tormented songwriter. Words and notes start with something in common: both belong to dynamic communities of stressed and unstressed members.

Look at a bar of 4/4 time. "Bridegroom" would fit the bar perfectly: both syllables are stressed but the first syllable is stronger: A perfect match.

Not that a poor match breaks any mythical rules; it just sounds unnatural. Simon Christen Photography.

Don McCullin

His career, which began in 1959, has specialised in examining the underside of society, and his photographs have depicted the unemployed, downtrodden and the impoverished. Biography[edit] Early life[edit] McCullin grew up in Finsbury Park, North London but he was evacuated to a farm in Somerset during The Blitz.[1] He is dyslexic[2][3] but he displayed a talent for drawing at the Secondary Modern School he attended. He won a scholarship to Hammersmith School of Arts and Crafts,[3] but left school at the age of 15 without qualifications for a catering job on the railways following the death of his father.[2][3] He was then called up for National Service in the Royal Air Force.

Romanian Antheneum, Bucharest, Romania Mariinsky Theatre, Saint Petersburg, Russia. Eugène Delacroix. In contrast to the Neoclassical perfectionism of his chief rival Ingres, Delacroix took for his inspiration the art of Rubens and painters of the Venetian Renaissance, with an attendant emphasis on colour and movement rather than clarity of outline and carefully modelled form.

Eugène Delacroix

Dramatic and romantic content characterized the central themes of his maturity, and led him not to the classical models of Greek and Roman art, but to travel in North Africa, in search of the exotic.[2] Friend and spiritual heir to Théodore Géricault, Delacroix was also inspired by Lord Byron, with whom he shared a strong identification with the "forces of the sublime", of nature in often violent action.[3] However, Delacroix was given to neither sentimentality nor bombast, and his Romanticism was that of an individualist.
