Rapheal Kirchner

Another blast of beauty from Paris in the early 1900’s. The colours Raphael Kirchner chose are so soft and dreamlike, his images of feminine beauty almost take you to another time and place. They certainly remind me of my childhood even though I have no memory of seeing his images then. Perhaps it’s the element of innocence present in all of them. Enjoy!

Beautiful variety as well.


And my favourite. How lovely are these? He’s famous for his postcard style illustration. Little pocket size wonders!


I think he could easily be my favourite artist at the moment. Whimsical yet detailed and classy. Love.
