Writing a paper, studying for an exam, listening to Eurotrash, consuming Red Bull.
I leave you with a detail from The Descent from the Cross, by Flemish artist Rogier van der Weyden. This piece is in the Museo del Prado in Madrid- seeing it at the time I didn’t understand how gorgeous this painting is. Even though I’m an atheist, I can appreciate the emotion, and the haptic feelings here in this piece.
Also, look at that blue! Egads! For being painted in 1435, this work sure blows my mind.
Ciao, I’m off to write about Miriam Schapiro and feminist art!
