OUR LADY OF SORROWS (AFTER JAN GOSSAERT)
Oil on canvas
60" x 60" unframed
The subject matter in this painting is again death, this time a green toned version of small piece of Jan Gossaert, the German Renaissance painter, only here the size is notoriously larger. A decorative black pattern covers part of the image, adding to a decadent, orientalist feeling. A single diagonal band of white drip work represents moonlight.
