A Fortnight (or so) Of Visionary Artists
|Detail from the Stigmatisation of St Francis. Tiepolo (March 5)|
Tiepolo, a vivid conjuror of imaginary worlds, painted ceilings. So did Michelangelo. It was the fashion in those days, of course, to paint visions of heaven…
What follows are works by artists born between March 5 and 21 that seem to sit together well. “Coincidentally” there are quite a few watercolours by this group of painters born under the wateriest sign of all, Pisces.
One wouldn’t want to get to carried away with drawing parallels between artists born under the same sun sign… but there is a mood here. I’ll leave you just to look and ponder.
