Portrait of a Woman by Marja van den Hurk

Art code: 823 236 Copy the art code

Marja van den Hurk Profile picture Around 1638 the Italian painter Guido Reni (1575 - 1642) made this portrait.
It's probably a portrait of Artemisia (350 BC), a Carian princess, the sister and wife (!) of Mausolus.

The story goes that the dish, dissolved in liquid, contained ashes of Artemisia's deceased Mausolus, whom she loved dearly.
By drinking his ashes, Artemisia wanted to turn herself into a living tomb.
Whether this really happened, we will never know. But we can safely rule out the possibility that she ate bubble gum to go with it...

Art with a wink ;-)

This artwork is offered by Marja van den Hurk

The stylists at Art Heroes call my art style ‘Art with a Wink’. And I couldn't agree more. Life is serious enough as it is, don't you think? ;-)

I mainly make surrealist artworks and collages, because in those artstyles I can so wonderfully unleash my creativity and unbridled imagination! But I also enjoy gratefully taking advantage of the fact that museums all over the world make their paintings available digitally and then unleash my own creative touch on them.

Besides artworks of art with a generous or a small dose of humour, I also enjoy making more serious works of art. In my shop you can see that my artwork is very diverse, I simply cannot choose, I like many styles and subjects just too much.

In my shop you can also find some of my photographs (my other great hobby). The ‘disadvantage’ of photography is that I am dependent on what appears in front of my lens, as I cannot photograph things that are not there. With my digital paintings, I can go any way I want, wich I really enjoy. My photography is currently at a low level, but I definitely intend to pick up this fine hobby again.

Hopefully you'll find something that appeals to you in my shop. In any case, know that I made everything with a lot of love, attention, respect and pleasure!
