I love the invented atmosphere and the seemingly casual application of paint, particularly in the Rococo flourishes.

In the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Use “Fullscreen” link under the image.

  1. Hey… wait a minute!
    Did you post this in response of that Russian meteor yesterday?

    1. Must be, winter sky, big glowing object…

      Best headline I’ve seen for the meteor is “Meteors are nature’s way of saying ‘How’s that space program coming along?’”

  2. Pleased you didn’t pick Arcimboldo’s Winter (1563), Charley.

    1. Thanks, Aelle. Maybe for a future post, though (grin).

      For the benefit of other readers, here is Arcimbolod’s Winter, and my post on Guiseppe Arcimboldo.
