Old school - when it was done manually - anyone care to share some old work?

Re: any artists that make images like lichtensteins brushstrokes
"Bored with the very practice of wielding a brush and deeply dissatisfied with painting as the only means to "make" something, he not only decided to stop being a painter in the conventional sense but set his mind to work on the whole problem of the artist's engagement with the real world. Rejecting established approaches to art as well as the contemporary modes of the Cubists and Furturists, and suspicious of the very concept of "reality" which his colleagues still attempted to explore (in however radical a way), he began to construct his own alternative version of reality: a mythic, pseudoscientific system which brought the tools of chance, humor, and ironic indifference into play."
Anne d"Harnoncourt and Walter Hopps, 1969

Ah, the joy of good old-fashioned reenactionary architecturism.

You do know that Rubens' first commissioned work was three paintings for the Helena chapel of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, don't you? Extra points if you also know Santa Croce in Gerusalemme was dedicated 20 March (probably) 327 AD. Think of the whole place as a reenactment of things that once happened in Jerusalem at the first full moon after the vernal equinox.
