Vanhat maalaukset ja vanhat valokuvatkin ihmisistä näyttävät jostain syystä erilaisilta kuin ihmiset tänä päivänä. Tässä luodaan melko onnistuneita ”porttauksia” vanhoista kuvista nykypäivään.

Elizabeth of York is a very common follower suggestion, but working on her made me realize why I don’t do more medieval portraits 🙂 It’s very flat and was really difficult to work from – it’s so hard to add depth and dimension where there isn’t any. Contrary to the popular belief that she was a blonde, Elizabeth was likely strawberry blonde or redheaded according to contemporary sources and the tiny peek of her hair we have in this portrait. This of course doesn’t preclude her being a blonde, but from the little info we have, artistic decisions were made! It’s unclear how old she is in the original portrait – I decided to depict her in her mid to late thirties, not long before her death. . Elizabeth was the wife of King Henry VII and the mother to the future King Henry VIII. Their union began the “Tudor” period as we know it. She married Henry in 1486 after his victory at the Battle of Bosworth Field against the other claimant to the throne, Richard III, which marked the end of the Wars of the Roses. The War of the Roses was one of the most tumultuous periods of English history, involving two main warring factions, the Yorkists and the Lancastrians. Both sides were vying for the throne and both sides had legitimate claims. The marriage of Elizabeth of York and Henry VII (of Lancaster), marked a political union that worked as intended – to show that the war was over, and that the two sides had joined. Obviously there is much more nuance to the events, but that is the cliff-notes version. The White Princess is a great show to watch (not necessarily historically accurate, but very entertaining) if you’re interested in learning more about this period of history. .

As many of you tudor-history lovers know, it was so exciting when we finally got confirmation on a portrait of Mary Boleyn. This portrait I’ve used here on the left is actually a copy of that portrait – the confirmed portrait is owned by the crown (and I don’t want a cease and desist from the Queen!), so I’ve used the copy from the public domain. Mary Boleyn was known as the beauty of the Boleyn family. She previously had an affair with Henry VIII before her younger sister Anne married him. There was surprisingly little available about her hair color – I always thought she was blonde (I’m sure from the popular Scarlett Johansson portrayal in The Other Boleyn Girl). However, the only source describing her hair color was that it was “lighter than her sisters”, which was said to be a deep shade of auburn. I also had some fun adding a few beauty marks/freckles, which I think adds to some realism in the modern day. As always, I “balanced” the proportions of the face, correcting for some of the known stylizations in portraiture from this era, like the tiny lips. . Prints of this work are available!

One of the most famous thinkers of all time, Aristotle (384-322 BC) contributed significantly to human knowledge. His reach touches logic, biology, ethics, aesthetics, and more. We don’t have any contemporary descriptions of his coloring, but luckily we have several surviving busts of his looks – of course this means estimating the hair and eye color, which is unknown. This work is in the Uffizi gallery, and is a Roman copy of the Greek original. Aristotle was taught by none other than Plato, and he spent 20 years as a student and later as a teacher at Plato’s Academy. Of his approximately 200 works only 31 survive. It is theorized that the surviving writings, because of their jumbled and dense structure, were meant to be lecture notes for his teaching rather than finished works. His writings were lost for many years after his death, and only after 300 years (in 30 BC) did Andronicus of Rhodes group and edit Aristotle’s works. Aristotle remains one of the most influential thinkers of all time, and contributed greatly to history. Check out my Tik Tok @royaltynow for the transformation timelapse! .

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827, shown here at age 49 in 1820) doesn’t need much of an introduction. A famous composer and pianist, his music is some of the most performed classical music in the world. His work spans both the classical period and the romantic periods of classical music. Moving to Vienna at the age of 21 and gained a reputation as a virtuoso. Scholars generally divide Beethoven’s work into three periods: Early, Middle, and Late. The Early period can be seen as him honing his craft, and the Middle period shows individual deviation from the Classical styles of Mozart. During the Late period (which lasts until his death in 1827), his deafness increases, but it is widely accepted as his most innovative time. Written in his last years, his late string quartets of 1825–26 are amongst his final achievements. After some months of bedridden illness he died in 1827. Beethoven's works remain mainstays of the classical music repertoire. Check out the transformation video on my Tik tok – @RoyaltyNow . Prints of this work are available in my Etsy shop!

Catherine de’ Medici is one that I get so many requests for, and she’s finally here! I have to say I really love this one – there is something so elegant and intellectual about her face. . Catherine (1519 – 1589), was an Italian noblewoman from the famous and powerful Medici family. She was Queen of France from 1547 until 1559, alongside King Henry II until his death in 1559. Catherine and Henry had three sons – Francis, Charles, and Henry – and she watched them all become King in succession to one another. The three sons reigned in an age of almost constant civil and religious war in France. The problems facing the monarchy were complex and daunting, but Catherine was able to keep the monarchy and the state institutions functioning even at a minimum level. Intelligent but ruthless, she resorted to hard-line policies that included excessive persecutions and violence, leading the people of France to become extremely disillusioned with the monarchy. She is known for doing anything for her family and for the Valois line to remain on the throne. This is demonstrated by the amusing tidbit that Catherine had a group of elite female spies called the “Flying Squadron” who did her bidding. Without Catherine, it is unlikely that her sons would have remained in power. According to Mark Strage, one of her biographers, Catherine was the most powerful woman in 16th-century Europe. .

The theme of this week seems to be revisiting my old work and creating better versions. I know this one has been a fan favorite for some time, and since I knew it would be a popular print item, I actually had to redo it completely because the original is actually too small to be of print quality! So this is Caesar, revisited, with more accurate & realistic features. I’m really proud of this revisitation. . Please check out the Royalty Now Etsy shop (direct link in bio), or send me a message if you are interested in a print of Caesar. There will be bookmarks of him coming soon as well. UK buyers – please message me if you are interested in a print but Etsy shipping is too expensive. I can send you a print much more inexpensively using regular USPS First Class mail, but it won’t have tracking on it. Also feel free to message me if you are interested in a print of a subject that is not listed yet, or have a custom request. I am just now getting this going so I am very open. .

Nämä ovat erittäin hienoja ja voisivat jopa olla hyödyksi historian opetuksessa, kun olisi kenties helpompi pohtia minkälaista historiallisten henkilöiden elämä on ollut – Ja siten muistaa tarinat (ja vuosiluvut) paremmin.
