Notan Design Comic Book Art Italy

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

Is it just me or does this mosaic stone design in Siena’s Duomo look very contemporary?  The use of the Notan design (mostly two-tone of light and dark) reminds me very much of comic book art, especially this last image I share with you.  Portraying emotion with the simplest, but clever, design of light and shadow shapes:  I could believe this was art of today if I saw it spray-painted onto a public wall.  What do you think?

If you find yourself in Tuscany before 26 October 2013, I hope you will go see the temporary unveiling of the highly decorative stone floor of the Duomo (Cathedral) in Siena.
More of the Divina Bellezza or “Divine Beauty”exhibition and the Duomo in Siena in the next post.
