    this is a fantastic example of writing around a painting as opposed to writing about a painting. in the same way seblad writes around a landscape.
    i'ts one way of doing things and it has it's uses but it's also indicative of an inability to see whats in front of your nose

    Ruskin is good at looking at what is in front of him, indeed that forms the basis of his aesthetic, although the language can get very dense

    http://www.gutenberg.org/files/29907...-h/29907-h.htm

    A good one to read is Martin Gayford's book about sitting for a portrait painted by Lucien Freud

    The_Annunciation,_with_Saint_Emidius_-_Carlo_Crivelli_-_National_Gallery.jpg

    this painting has a gherkin in it.

    something about the modelling of the faces in the choir reminded me of
    Picasso-Garçon-à-la-Pipe-1905.jpg
    for example. or even
    pablo-picasso-bust-of-a-man-1908-oil-on-canvas-1367976238_org.jpg
    although the specific portrait i have in mind i cant find. i like the spectral cows.

    I make EVERYTHING about PL these days but reading PL I've constantly had Michelangelo's sistine ceiling in my mind.

    Reading one of my gigantic Michelangelo books last night I was staggered as ever by his genius. Even if he'd only painted the Sistine ceiling - but he was also the greatest sculptor in history. And he HATED painting!
