Romance Through the Ages

Love is in the air!

Ah yes! It’s a fresh new start to the year, things have started to settle down, and February is slowly creeping onward. The florists are prepping, the jewelers are polishing up their finest, and the chocolatiers are whipping up their best creations. Everyone is getting ready for the most lovable holiday of the year. Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us, are you ready? We are! So here’s a special love letter to you!

 

Dear Art Enthusiasts,

I’m sure most of us have had a few mixed emotions about this holiday. But, no need to get huffy! What we can tell you is that love is in the air, and Romance has been around through the ages. Whether you’re single and looking (or not), taken, or even married for years that you stopped counting; Romance will last through the ages.

 

 

For those of you singletons, don’t sweat it! One of the great things about love (that is commonly overlooked on the dreaded V-day) is you don’t have to have a significant other to appreciate this day. Everyone holds different interpretations; what’s yours? Years can pass by, and you won’t always have a date, but don’t take this as an offense. Love yourself. Respect yourself. Take a moment to remember that there’s always platonic love, and there’s nothing like love from your guardians. Take time to remember those that put in the effort to raise you, and help guide you into who you’ve become today. Valentine’s Day isn’t just about being single, or taken, it’s about respect for yourself and for others. Maybe you love your pet, your job, your hobby; whatever love you have embrace it! Celebrate it!

Let’s take a look at some interesting art from the days of yore all about romance, from our Collection. If you’re lucky, we’ll even hold your hand. But, don’t get frisky!

This cute couple shown here is a famous Impressionist Styled piece by Edouard Manet.

 

We’ve noticed many Tumblr fans would love to see Disney do an Impressionistic Movie. A fellow blogger has illustrated their interpretation below! Pretty neat right?

 

Here’s a young woman shown in elegance with a love letter and roses!

 

 

 

Sometimes you’ll see public displays of affection, love can do that to people. Like this young couple on the subway!

 

 

Or this couple from what looks like a long journey back to each other!

 

 

Here’s a couple so in love they’re dancing in the streets! Try it! Safely of course!

 

 

Robert Frost couldn’t have said it any better!

 

 

Love Always,
