Tolkien Artists, The Bros. Hildebrandt: World of Men and Elves Can't Post

Yay! Breaking in new boards with the Hildebrandts!!!!

Cool

+++++++++++

This post contrasts their depictions of the cultures of Men and Elves as well as their structures and dwellings.

First, the world of Men:

"The Road to Minas Tirith" (July 1976)

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...andt/road2tirith.jpg

"The Pillars of the King" (April 1978)

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...debrandt/pillars.jpg

"Saruman at Orthanc" (September 1976) (Since it was originally a Númenórean structure)

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...debrandt/orthanc.jpg

"The Golden Hall of Rohan" (August 1978)

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...ebrandt/goldhall.jpg

Helm's Deep (July 1977)

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...brandt/helmsdeep.jpg


And now the world of Elves:

"Rivendell" (March 1977)

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...brandt/rivendell.jpg

"I designed Rivendell to be the most ideal place for me to live. A house like this in the middle of natue is my dream. Sort of a Walt Disney-take on Frank Lloyd Wright."
--Tim Hildebrandt

This is a 2002 painting of the Hall of Fire (the couple posing as Aragorn and Arwen commissioned the work and posed for it, so he doesn't have a Father Guido Sarducci 70s 'stache!)



"Lothlórien" (May 1977)

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...randt/lothlorien.jpg

"Even though Lothlorien is the highest manifestation of peace and beauty, I always thought the finished shape of the trees looked like an atomic explosion."
--Tim Hildebrandt

And of course, Galadriel herself with her ring

http://img-fan.theonering.net/...brandt/galadriel.jpg

Last one later today or tomorrow, and maybe I will figure out how to do thumbnails here!
