This week I strongly considered our theme “dance” as movement in nature—wind through trees, light on water, mating rituals—before choosing one of my Italian Miniature Paintings to share.
Visual Sources for my Salomé:
- Detail of Salomé’s dance, Herod’s Banquet, mosaic of XIV century Basilica di San Marco, Battistero, Venezia, Italia;
- Birds, Basilica di San Francesco, Assisi, Italia;
- “Venice, 1931,” vintage photographic test print (un provino) from Porta Portese flea market, Roma, Italia.
