Kayama Matazo – Frozen Forest

It’s actually from the upper left corner of the left panel in “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” as seen [here](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f7/Hieronymus_Bosch_-_The_Garden_of_Earthly_Delights_-_The_Earthly_Paradise_%28Garden_of_Eden%29.jpg).

Alex Grey – Progress of the Soul: Despair

Ah, are you not familiar with Francis Bacon? You are in for a treat, my friend. Post-war anglo-irish painter who was renowned for his biomorphic abstractions and depictions of human anguish / extistential torment. A legendary bon vivant, he lived a very interesting and

Francis Bacon – Painting, 1946

The gallery label at [MoMA](http://www.moma.org/collection/object.php?object_id=79204): “Created in the immediate aftermath of World War II, *Painting* is an oblique but damning image of an anonymous public figure. Half-obscured by an umbrella, he is dressed in a dark formal suit—the unofficial uniform of British politicians of

Would it be alright if a post more from the same alley in separate posts? There were several other great pieces, though it feels weird chopping it up.

Christina’s World by Andrew Wyeth

I’ve always loved this piece – not because of the content or the artists ability but because my grandparents had a print of this piece in their house. It always reminds me of a simpler time when I was younger and would spend time

Oscar Wilde
