Witches

witches02.jpg

Scene of Witchcraft (1510) by Hans Baldung Grien. Earlier this year Pam Grossman declared 2013 to be the Year of the Witch, so in honour of that (and the season) here’s a handful of sorceresses through the ages. Most can be found in higher quality at the Google Art Project but a couple are from […]

Der Orchideengarten illustrated

orchid_01.jpg

Halloween approaches and as a precursor it’s a great pleasure to be able to post a selection of interior illustrations from Der Orchideengarten, courtesy of Will at A Journey Round My Skull. Der Orchideengarten was a German magazine of weird fiction which ran for 51 issues from 1919 to 1921 and whose existence today is […]

The Metamorphoses of Don José

velasquez1.jpg

Las Meninas (1656) by Diego Velázquez. The sight of one of Picasso’s many versions of Las Meninas (The Maids of Honour) by Velázquez earlier this week prompts this post. An endlessly fascinating painting whose influence runs through three hundred years of art history. That influence isn’t so surprising if you consider this as a painter’s […]

Alexandre Alexeieff and Claire Parker

trial.jpg

Before the Law from The Trial (1962). I’d wanted to write something about this pair of animators last year but at the time there was none of their work available for online viewing. This situation has now been remedied thanks to the ubiquitous YouTube. This is Kafka-related once again since most people have seen Alexeieff/Parker’s […]

Fantastic art from Pan Books

larkin_fantastic.jpg

Fantastic Art (1973). Cover: Earth by Arcimboldo. I’d thought of writing something about this book series even before I started this weblog since there’s very little information to be found about it online. I can’t compete with the serious Penguin-heads—and I’m not much of a dedicated book collector anyway—but I do have a decent collection […]
