    On a rainy summer day spent at Chicago's Art Institute eight years ago, I happened across this painted ceramic object created by an artist's hands between the years 1450 and 1500.  Looking through the thick glass case, where he stood all by himself, I knew instantly who he was...

    Floored

    Art that speaks to me tends to have been produced before 1930.  There are exceptions, and I have an EP friend to thank for opening my eyes.  "The Floor" is a 2006 work by pop surrealist Judith Schaechter working in glass.  In many of her works, the central figures are in a...

    A Girl With A Broom

    Although not in motion, “A Girl with a Broom” is at once both solidly planted and emerging from the darkness toward the viewer. There is a gentle innocence in her face, but also the hardness of a childhood at labor and without time for demonstrations of affection or other...

    Leonardo's Most Famous Painting

    It's termed the "first modern painting", one of only four women Leonardo daVinci ever painted, and is considered by art historians his greatest. Yet most know little about "Lady with Ermine."The 16-year old mistress of the Duke of Milan seems to be caught in a pose that haunts...

    Mother And Child

    I have never managed to find out who painted this. All I know is that he (she?) was from the Romantic movement, possibly French. I often think this is what Mary and Jesus would have looked like (that's right people, Jesus was born in Palestine... so he and his family looked...

    Praxiteles, My Eyes

    I'll never set eyes upon her. No one will.  A riot that led to the burning of most of Constantinople almost 1,500 years ago consumed her fully.  She was already almost 900 years old at that time, and a marvel that drew adventurers and lovers of beauty from all over the...
