"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
Thank you for continuing this lovely and informative blog. It cheers me immensely when I open to a "new" painting...I look forward to it every time. Thank you! Laurel
Fascinating painting! Thank you for posting it.
Ruth Mellinkoff's book "The Devil at Issenheim" helps explain the peculiar looking critters and symbolism. The panel here is of the angels celebrating Christ's birth, with the green angel, archangel, being Lucifer. Look carefully at the facial expression, peacock crest on his head, small bits of rot on fingers fretting the instrument. That's a great book, by the way, well researched and written with plenty of high quality reproductions.
