..... OR Mermaids & Sailors .... They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me.
..... I also enjoy all things related to the "Seven Seas", which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few.
..... So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

Poster by Leo Putz advertising the ‘Moderne Galerie / Modern Gallery’, ca. 1909.
Description: The poster depicts a beautiful mermaid holding a large oyster filled with pearls which became the trademark of the ‘Moderne Gallerie’. The gallery was among the first to exhibit the work of Van Gogh, the French Impressionists and the group ‘Blauer Reiter’.
One of the silent era’s most spectacular action blockbusters, this film also boasts an experimental early two-strip Technicolor process, making it one of the few color silent films. Douglas Fairbanks stars as a nobleman and sole survivor of a ship seized and blown up by pirates, killing everyone on board, including Fairbanks’ father.
Fairbanks vows revenge and subsequently joins the pirate crew, walking a fine line by seeming to aid the pirates while actually protecting potential victims and plotting the pirates’ ultimate downfall.
