Each year we watch the Disney version of the legend of sleepy hollow. We have it on dvd and now it on Disney plus.
An appropriate choice for the day. Spot on, Lori! AAOOOOOOOOOO!🎃👻🕸🍄
Thank you for these Saturday art lessons that are endlessly intriguing! This hearkens back to ‘60’s high school English classes. What fun!
So my email feed truncated the subject of your post – said
“The Headless Horseman Purs…”
I thought hmm now she is into purses? And the theme of this one sure is odd. How is she going to pull this off?
Lol! Sounds like a good idea though!
I read “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” each year before Halloween and enjoy it more each time! Thank you for such a great scary painting!
Thank you for the Halloween history recap.
Hi Lori, thanks for your weekend art/history lessons. Being Australian I had not heard of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow until the TV series came out a few years ago. I was fascinated by that show and the American History lessons within, so reading your post and seeing the painting I had to read the info about it! Thank you for a fun and interesting Halloween post 😀
I haven’t seen the series. I’ll have to look it up! Thanks for tour tip!
As another Australian, I am so grateful that you shared an old American story with the world. It is evocative of tales from the old country – the UK where I grew up. These stories with a moral,capture our imagination and unite us in fear and laughter all at the same time. Thank-you for the painting, the story and the timing of your wonderful post. You take so much time and care in investigating and curating stories, art and ‘life’ for all of us to enjoy. What a treasure you are. Or should I hesitate to say ‘Saint” of the blogs.
My son was there today in Sleepy Hallow!
thank you so much for sharing all these artworks each monday, it’s a true pleasure
no only the picture, but different links to its painter, history and understanding
