CD cover

This looks like a detail from an 18th century painting, probably French or Italian. Can anyone tell me who the painter is?

Kahlil Gibran

Top: Mother Earth

There's an exhibition of Gibran's paintings at the State Library of NSW, Sydney, until the 20th of February. It's well worth a visit. There are some oils in the exhibition but most works are drawings with washes, a medium of which he was a master. Gibran was a truly deep soul in the spirit of Blake and Michelangelo.

Luis De Morales, c. 1520-1586, Virgin and Child.

Something about the graceful stylisation of anatomy in this work reminds me of William Blake - especially the hands.

I like the abstract qualities of the architectural elements.
