OK, so I missed the whole “October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month” to share this little gem of a painting with you. In mid-October I delivered my recently sold sculpture
“Against the Dying of the Light” to a collector in North Carolina. On my way home from this trip, I stopped in Atlanta to see the Titian and Dalí exhibits, as well as the permanent collection of The High Museum of Art. What a wonderful way to spend five hours!
Boob aficionados might remember that I wrote about the painting of the martyr “Sant’Agata” in Florence, Italy. Today, I share with you another artist’s version of the same saint. Italian painter Giovanni Busi Cariani created “Portrait of a Young Woman as Saint Agatha” in the years 1516 – 1517. I love the red wall color used for this entire exhibit!
Here is a better image on the site of her true home: the National Galleries of Scotland
Ouch! Just a friendly reminder to take care of all of your body parts before someone/thing else does.
And now, since I am having a busy week, I want to post this event invitation:
