Lovers and Valentines in Art
Love and Lovers In Art
Whether ancient or new, art has a way of capturing feelings and emotion, and lovers are a favorite topic over time for sure. This hub is an article that is really more of a photo gallery. You will see a collection of several pieces of different art from varying artists over history. What a wonderful topic, and it comes near one of our most beloved holidays. That being, Valentine's Day.
I hope this does a number of different things, like expose you to new artists that you maybe didn't hear of before. Or perhaps stir something inside of you or inspire perhaps. Regardless, I hope you enjoy these images as much as I have.
Make sure to see all the images of art in this hub by either clicking on each thumbnail, or by watching the slide show. The slide show is more enjoyable I think. One of the things that stood out to me while viewing these pieces of art, was that while I liked them all for one reason or another, I really liked when the picture tells a story. I also enjoyed seeing the "lovers" in the art, as one very small part of the larger picture or story. I can't imagine how much time and effort went into all these pieces. I think it a great thing we look at and remember the old great artists of the past.
These images can be great to share near Valentine's Day, or any time of the year. I love art, and this subject is by no means the least of all subject matter that could be covered in art!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and view this gallery of images. I hope you were inspired or touched somehow.

Thank you for your comment and thoughts on this art selection, and votes. That one from Van Gogh was new to me also, and I was so happy to have found it. There seems to be so much art out there that I hope to see more of in the same way. Thanks again.

I love the selection of paintings you put into this hub. Some are really scenic, affectionate, and a few are downright erotic. I've never seen that particular painting of Van Gogh, no wonder this is your favorite because it's really a gorgeous painting. Up and awesome and beautiful.
