Port Scene with the Embarkation of St Ursula (1641)
Claude Lorrain

what is this?

What else but an annoying little text-post to tell all of my wonderful, (and very) few followers that I’ll be posting here again, after a long and inexplicable wait. I hope the amount of time that I left this blog alone was lengthy enough to fully enjoy chaconne. I know, I know. It just wasn’t. You haven’t missed much—I’m still eighteen and still vaguely clueless about the classical/romantic/baroque pieces I post here, but just as before, I’m going to post them anyway. As always, clicking whatever I post will lead you to the site where I found it, but the painter/author/instrumentalist will always be credited in text in the post itself. A note of thanks to all those people who’ve haven’t clicked that unfollow button out of either laziness, forgetfulness, or loyalty. You are my ppl.

Onward to the good stuff then!
