A new 18th century tv series is coming soon to Swedish tv, Anno 1790. Apparently it’s a crime series set in the 1790s, though from the trailers it seems to be set at least 20 years earlier.
I just found this via Isis’ Wardrobe.
Before the Automobile is an absolutely amazing costuming blog by a Finnish girl with some of the best 18th century costumes I’ve seen. She also makes beautiful 19th century costumes.
My favourite post is one about making her own 18th century shoes, something I have been planning for some time. Maybe now I’ll finally get around to making a pair!
The Tischbein family was a German family of painters of who the most well known appear to be Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder, Johann Friedrich August Tischbein and Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein.

I haven’t managed to figure it out myself and therefore will show all the Tischbein paintings I have found in this post, but will only state the artists of the ones I’m fairly sure of. If you can shed any light on the subject (perhaps you know in which museums some of these are kept?), do tell!
