axelschefflerAxel Scheffler said that Brexit makes him “sad and angry every day” as he picked up the Illustrator of the Year prize at The British Book Awards last night (14th May).

When receiving the award, Scheffler, who is German, said that while he was “grateful” to receive the prize, he did so with “a heavy heart and maybe even a slightly bitter feeling – it feels like a consolation prize, or even a farewell gift.”

This is a quick post, partly because my touchpad is being recalcitrant, to showcase View of a Harbour by Caspar David Friedrich which is new in my vintage store.

Have a lovely weekend.

Take care and keep laughing!

Portrait of the Artist’s Wife by August Macke

Portrait of the Artist’s wife Elisabeth with a Hat (Frau des Kunstlers mit Hut) 1909. August Macke (3 January 1887 – 26 September 1914) was one of the leading members of the German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider). He lived during a particularly innovative time for German art which saw the development of the main German Expressionist movements as well as the arrival of the successive avant-garde movements which were forming in the rest of Europe. Like a true artist of his time, Macke knew how to integrate into his painting the elements of the avant-garde which most interested him. [Wikimedia] 

Enjoy!

Take care and keep laughing!
