Bring the Chazen to your home with this gorgeous reproduction print of Children Dancing on the Strand by George William (“A.E.”) Russell!
George William Russell (called AE) was active in Irish practical politics, forming agrarian cooperative societies and writing and editing publications to modernize agriculture in Ireland. At the same time, he was drawn to mystical organizations such as the Theosophists. AE was also well known as a poet, and his poetry corresponds to the misty-mystical quality of such paintings as Children Dancing on the Strand with its sketch-like, quick brushstrokes, and unfinished quality of landscape. What was important in the painting for AE was the quality of light, the glimpse of another dimension of reality with the ethereal, floating children in the moonlight.
