Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (also known as the Pre-Raphaelites) was a group of English painters, poets, and critics, founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The three founders were joined by William Michael Rossetti, James Collinson, Frederic George Stephens and Thomas Woolner to form the seven-member "brotherhood". The group's intention was to reform art by rejecting what it considered the mechanistic approach first adopted by Mannerist artists who succeeded Raphael and Michelangelo. Its members believed the Classical poses and elegant compositions of Raphael in particular had been a corrupting influence on the academic teaching of art, hence the name "Pre-Raphaelite".

Victorian Organ Command Desk & Steampunk Home Tour You'll recall I recently visited the Steampunk home of Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum. During that visit Bruce showed me a partially finished project that I decided really needed a story of it's own when it was completed This is the "Victorian Organ Command Desk" that Bruce commissioned. It's made from bits and pieces of Victorian detritus that Bruce had collected including the carcass of a 19th century pump organ. All of the major components are in fact authentic Victorian antiques, period reproductions, or salvaged items. You'll note the organ pipes mounted on the wall behind the console.

The Responsibility of the Artist Jacques Maritain's THIS little book is based on six lectures that I was privileged to deliver at Princeton University, under the auspices of the Council of the Humanities, in 1951. Though the requirements of the subject matter have made it necessary to bring up a number of themes already discussed in Art and Scholasticism and in Creative Intuition in Art and Poetry, my topic does not pertain to aesthetics alone; it pertains also, and mainly, to moral philosophy. What are, in the poet, the novelist, the man dedicated to any kind of creative art, the relations between the exigencies of poetry and intellectual creativity and those of moral standards, which have to do with the right use of human free will? What is the moral responsibility of the artist with respect to others, and with respect to himself?

Search: steampunk We have written about a couple of Steampunk gadgets before. These were the Steampunk Nerf Maverick Gun and a Steampunk Furnace Mouse. Both look cool and this next one is no exception. I have to admit that it’s not something I would ever wear to a party, but it is still quite cool to see.
