I am completely bewitched, I did not know that there are fans of History, I see that you are almost as passionate about Baroque art as I am

Thank you! Yes, I'm very interested in the 17th and 18th centuries (early 19th century too)!

Your gallery attracts me a lot
Hey, if you need more inspiration for your sketches, I keep a whole folder specifically for that purpose myself that I thought might interest you.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Thank you for sharing-- there's a lot of cool images in that!
