Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

I liked the Prince one and the Voldemort one best. Some of these coincidences are weird.

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

Hello all,
Thought I'd mention in connection with this a picture I have seen by Joseph Wright of Derby. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the photo but it involved a jar, a bird, some children and a man with a grey beard. Hmm...
If anyone else could have a look and make sure I wasn't dreaming...

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

Thank you for using modern tools and Harry Potter to broaden everyone's horizons. Education comes in all forms.

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

I found some very interesting stuff by Joseph Wright of Derby. Go to Art Resource (www.artres.com), click on "advanced search," and type the artist's name in the Artist field, then click "Search." If it asks you to choose a name from a pull-down list, do so and click Search again. There were something like 21 pictures by JW of D, including the bird experiment one, and a sorcerer looking for the stone of wisdom, etc. Pretty cool. Thanks!

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

I enjoyed this editorial, but I look at art differently. I'm actually an art student, just about to get my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. For me art came before Harry Potter, but I can't help but think about the moving paintings in the HP world. And the statues Dumbledore brought to life. For me it's more interesting to look at a piece of art and think what if it could move, what if it could talk? What would it do and say?

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

I'm an art student and Harry Potter fan simultaneously. It's cool to see those two worlds colliding. That was brilliant, Robbie. Thank you for sharing.

We should keep this thread going. People can post images of artwork, and say talk about how it could relate to the HP books. JKR does borrow a lot from mythology and history. That's a strong link to the art world.

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

While you're visiting Art Resource, do a search for "alchemy." There are some really cool pictures that come up under that subject.

Edit: now that I know what I'm doing, I'll even give you some links to save you the trouble:
One - Two - Three - Four - Five - Six - Seven - Eight (a photo of a reconstructed alchemist's laboratory) - Nine - Ten - Eleven - Twelve - Thirteen - Fourteen - Plus some magical things by Joseph Wright of Derby makes Fifteen - Sixteen - and Seventeen for a Galleon's worth!

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

How about Odilon Redon's "Green Death"? (1905). It looks like Nagini with Voldemort's body for a head.

P.S. Great choice for Snape and his mother.

P.P.S. And here is a classic 15th century tapestry (detail) with a unicorn. For more examples (and full view) see this page.

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

That was a really good idea, to find artwork that relates to Harry Potter. Its such a great way to bring people into a subject they might not otherwise be interested in. I know the editorials here have sent me in all sorts of directions, looking up stuff I never would have thought about otherwise. Thanks for linking each piece - what a lot of hard work! I especially liked the classical sculptures myself - the griffin was amazing!

Re: Harry Potter and the Magic of Art

More magical creatures: a kappa - a minotaur - a werewolf - some winged horses - a phoenix - a chimera - an elf.

Would anyone be willing to go through the 400-odd Art Resource pictures related to the search term "dragon"? It would be interesting to know how many different breeds are represented....

PS I'm bookmarking this thread. I agree, it would be cool to continue this...

PPS Here is a unicorn. And another. Here's one leaving Noah's ark.

Here is a picture of Rufus Scrimgeour and one of Fenrir and some other Werewolfs.
