Auto-Generated Transcript

i were going to cover probably our most eminent on
painter lorenza goes by the name lorenzo monochrome lords the monk
that order
before we i begin i want to mention least two sources
this is the best day on the along
it is a doctoral dissertation
by marvin lies over i think i have the date right materials and on princeton university press it's about the size of bar sacramento free but only half as thick and the color is the color yellow on
instead of the colors are the colors that lawrence environments t-shirt is to mix together it's missing
it's so you want to keep your eye peeled for this it was evidently in the room line saying in one of the drawers and it's gone now and hopefully still can't seem to fancy car but it's to hunt on buying from once keep an eye peeled for them this is an excellent
source all intel luciano pelosi is probably the foremost the other ones i know i bought i have the be photocopied article maybe ten talents and down
pelosi has probably been the most the the one who treats
lorenzo with authority in me and he is the author of the text which goes to this particular number seventy three of this italian series of milan are nice the code all the astors
cover and on it's it's a wonderful little bit that's another copy with from there was ah
and done me
did you see that come out and they have the whole cell lines this stacked on the floor
anyway so the robert has this if you want to save this
at some point i was mentioning a josh providing of this made book from the library it's not fair so i still miss it's want to keep your eye peeled for for that book on women's more than two hundred dollar volume it's important that we find and maybe you'll find it in a jar some sometimes
okay on
lorenzo was a hoax contemporary and at one point worked collaborator with a the the artist from jericho now st and gm vehicle and with we do not know the exact
your d a your peripheral the renzo that they generally say about thirteen seventy there is there is an important
a german scholar of earlier times of lorenzo come in hot got all now who says known as much earlier but all the other ones all the other critique critics laughed at him because he was only doing that so it could prove his theory about a certain painting and so they think it's about
that's visible from the day it can possibly me as latest thirteen seventy five eisenberg says but if you say thirty and seventy eight it's consonants because they don't have the exact date so who's going on
and we think he was on and sienna they don't even know where it was born but they're pretty nice sure from certain indications that it was seeing
and he was brought as a baby are to florence by his father giovanni
and i mentioned i put the district of florida that he was when he grew up in send me kelly is darwin sometimes you'll see these don't me because for come on to this history this is an important district we had a number of eminent on come on his parish
suddenly came in these dawn
in fact i'm think we're going to run into another one yet in the series of lectures and that the artist is from the same parish in florence
his name got into among the car and i put that on there also isn't his is peter of job his father's job peter job and his religion and was born and so are the reason i put the doctors because many of his paintings were painted by peter of john not be
for it wasn't long but why he wasn't luck and we'll get to of afterwards but lorenzo monaco piero di giovanni the same partners same person
we do know that a ph or or piano became a monk of santa maria de yonge usually you will see this anarchic in our history books and now is beautiful
books on the manuscript illuminations one august was probably the most famous of our models there is outside of the command
it mentioned as they'll just say yonge the angels know that and when this when you see that the referred to this famous monsters aren't the money you gave the arch in florence
ah he entered their and thirteen nine time
this they have that date in the animals of the of the house
ah this particular monastery had been founded in year twelve ninety five
as a primitive age
modeled upon the software animal itself has come out to me
it was founded by a rich poet named widow and so
this is this is a different way to get it so either that or the other ones to an interest to years old
also known as raton name
the red zone
and he was a member of the order of the gout n t which was a militant order of the blessed virgin mary get that we sort of like a super fraternity club
locally and for us they call them the couple of the machines became law because with more the the the florentines thought they were fat lazy and pacifists all all three things you shouldn't be in florence fourteenth century and fifteenth century
so they made fun of them also keep their called capon because they liked to dress him bright flowing robes and
i guess most people were laughing at the basic
ah but the house was set up and its lifestyle is also said are modeled upon our life out of the socket error will the command itself this lasted this is also terrific the until the your fourteen seventy at which time this hermitage became as
so reason i'm pointing the it's because you see that when lorenzo's there it's still hermitage and it has a lot stricter cloistered rules one not that would have had a two generations down and because of that his he his life was affected by that fact
as we'll see
don't lorenzo was professed on december tenth thirteen ninety one remember now
whenever we're talking about know vicious and professions and all of that
in these early centuries it can all happen in a year's time we're not talking about three years and junior headroom and this and that apostasy in one day all can all happened very quickly
usually the not the innovation is a year or longer but that's it then you make profession the professions for life and and you are you are a month for life
so he professed in thirteen and ninety one and he received all four of the minor orders during that same month
after his profession
and he was never ordained a priest who did receive the diaconate nine months later on september twenty first thirteen ninety two this i'm throwing out these days to see old days we have on names are these things we don't know if that like the birth and death will get to that we don't even know the death
he was ordained a deacon that he was never ordained a priest in other words he was not to become as they said at that time wood monarchos the mesa
so in other words he he wasn't going to be an ass mock mass priest
you know and at that time whilst monasteries most priests were precisely that i mean their priesthood was just that
celebrating the eucharist not the went into any be outside
pastoral work so it it said sort of tongue-in-cheek grew more and i them mess
he had some artistic training we know before it came into the monster
and because he entered they're already with some notoriety and his fame once he got in there and started producing from the monastery spread rapidly
events and coworkers even in those early years of the mid thirteen nineties started coming to him
and working with him so he was forced to move outside the polling poster so already in the
lake thirteen nineties we have lorenzo monaco now louis remember you still come out of me even though it that's the close and a better user last time was he was kidding me says what are going to here five days if people who really aren't come all these after all only coming
he had to be it had to leave the hermitage because it's still strict question so the question itself for the monastery itself bought him a house across the street where he set up his workshop because he already had a number of students and young artists' work and under him and they set up a mass production workshop while they all do
did at that time all the great artists had their mass production or setups and this one was very prolific of a workshop is we'll see
ah so he had basically a house in the garden across the street from the rgb
he lived outside the monastery that probably from the late thirteen nine years we don't have the exact date when you've got and that's probably because he did it gradually anyway so it's not in the annals of the of the monastery
a luciano pelosi however dates it to for this fellow fourteen or two but most people think that's probably a little bit too late
he had the proper dispensation to do this we have evidence of that we don't have the exact date
hope he remained a monk and this is very odd for that time he remained a monk of yanji but did not live in the cloister
and he remained a member and when he died he was buried in the chapter room back and back in the monster chatroom had a number of thumb since monks and well our power law and gun
for ah sylvester the day brother whom they elected abbot of the house
are both buried together in in the chapter the moslem turks go to the canal very well the angeles
ah and so at once he moved out at the monastery now he did a lot of things in the monastery and during that time there they're assigned or attributed to your hands islamic once he left to the cloister and sell his art starts coming out attributed to pierre pierre
rated giovanni and events answer my so it's follow you just want bible names out there and i'm sure there was some reason for certain pieces going under pure logic digiovanni but i can prove that that makes sense to me those burdens chief
our tradition holds that he he died fairly young he died at the age of fifty five and that he ruined his stomach
he died stomach problems and the monks evident they had been telling him three years stop spending hours bent over your panels of jessup they they the monks and salsa do the and self attributed his death to all those long hours or
the drying just so that he inhaled and me over which he was bent
during those years whether you've done that philippines or not we're not sure we know that he died at the age of fifty five but they product with the year down
and that's why we can give a certain to either
either day however read here now than he died on this has become things because the same day as we don't know we had hoped that adcenter that yesterday may seventeen
i was remember that can smell recognition
at bombing died
there is one of one reference to was they actually being twenty four
most people think know the seventy and just by sheer number they went out
ah his art in general them
the bed they are the began to be cultivated at the hermitage in florence are in his as early as be here thirteen twenty two as the first evidence we have of them starting to develop in the monastery so a center of the arts for florence
we know that various academies were begun and that later free instruction was given to the youth of our florence during the fifteenth century at their college which they had developed in conjunction with the car all of this
belly archy that's going on in the monastery the future pope leo the tenth by away very important to ah
commodities history the one who a friend of the justinian me who about the coronation to begin ah he is the pope to whom are paulo justinian he wrote his famously bad loose for church reform which we just got in an italian translation them anyway this pope leo to ten
well as a young boy studied at the college and it could they could aid your now
florence in our place
and during that time letters and sciences flourished not just not not just the arts sciences as well
in in this great school and great monastery far as the arts or concerns specifically those that we have mentioned of of having little workshops of these particular parts all and the same monastery in the cloister work painting
miniature his paintings
the weeding of tapestries and they haven't tapestry
drawing metal work and embroidery room
the transcription of manuscripts and a room for the illumination of and all of this going on in question
ah much artistic output is alluded to over the over the years and we have certain financial records which which proved that there was a lot going on for instance we have we have the bill of sale for a huge amounts of cobalt lawrence
which is going out of what existence but he was telling me that last song there were running out of clip on the world cobalt gives us this beautiful dark deep blue and painting the radar covariance but i'll have to try and find the okay
they had huge amounts of the i mean it like it had to be had become by donkey train or something and we have the bill of sale from the venetian merchants who got it off from abroad and then transported to this monstrous they'd have enough blue paint for their illuminations
as as is staggering songs their pending to attribute it to get a lot of paint that they were bringing in the pigments one
the artistic schools of sienna and job tool was heard on had already flourished in italy and deeply influenced the work of download and wealthiest from sienna anyway even if you left us a baby is probably some kinship there to be too
to be disposed to be influenced by
by the gothic by the the johto gothic as it's sometimes call
but and he was especially influence by on today no also known as a new oh this is another name for it but sometimes you just see an annual gotten it's the same today or and normal got me
his his prime influence
and how the scholar geraghty refers to lorenzo monaco is the bridge between job toe and di lorenzo be or a sort of grafting of the two together if you put guardian georgia together
you get loaded
i suppose it but that's really saying is what you have in odense his job till
with some influence of gun
couple of wanting the other way around since since job earlier and so profoundly along with simone martini so profoundly influenced well least two centuries of painting in italy especially with the triptychs and panel just panel
the that a one techniques and style
monaco in the beginning carries on this traditional form you find a job talk them martini and so if you can think of museums where you seen this this trip to be standing triptychs sort of leave and have a gothic feel to them or the other sort of
his early work as a lot like this lot like junk
but again wedded to the florentine new style it just come across with garden and then others as as it gets old in fact neurons and monarch was going to influence others use launch himself to to move away from georgia yeah a sort of bridgework interference
from santa
so although he is credited with the direct re-discovery of the what they call the job to esque art as rediscovering their before like rebirthing johto for the world his arm on he really was a bridge person between florence and seeing if you think it is
it's that way in that general ah that's what he's doing he's just at that time in history when you when we're going to pass into something new and he really facilitates that happening in the art room
ah they say that even visa a is colored solutions so as a colorist r lawrence or monaco it's a major rich person for this century not just in techniques and just moving away from the traditional form graduate
but even in the use of color and pigmentation ah he probably surprised and scandalized many people have his day just be because he was using such bright colors and they weren't used to them
his most famous student is someone i've never heard of
francesco ferretti francis from floor
has anyone heard of him have you is your service
anyway i did a lot of find work after the death of florence
and have at least a short lived in
yet in general of the artists lorenza monaco shows have a very strong church or ecclesiastical our bases in which he portrays a religious ideal are but then with his richness of detail is coloration in the way ornament ornaments
the paintings it's a very much his own workmanship it's it's own star and a monocle because
obviously to everyone other events in monaco
ah he was a very very accomplished miniaturist also now look to we're going to talk about the various miniaturist schools these monks retaining little teeny illumination to in in miniature paintings around a letter in acquire books and and various manuscripts
when we talk about that tomorrow but both ends are also had a whole flock as miniaturist working under him and he was only because he was accomplished himself before he moved out of the question is probably doing
as much if not more miniature paintings and he was a panel work at that time
his art also has a very serious devotional quality there's a strong piety and that's a very simple pie it's not it's not too it doesn't make you because it's a fact that it's just very a very refined quiet devotional approach or feet
thing you get from front yard
and so there's a certain elegance of regular to sentimentality that you get with with lorenzo moment of that term is a little more acceptable to people from various persuasions so they can find that the words at waterproof that type of religious sentiment tell you that almost anybody can access
to her
we find with you
ah that's not always the case of course in the history of high
oh again
a number of the scholars also it is illumination is the bees his work as a miniaturist point to his coloration how he paints with such vibrant colors and hues that just weren't hadn't been used before that's where he stands out
also serving the nation as a colorist eisenberg rights of him light and color persist as vehicles have a very private and rapturous spiritual
that was the recent light and color persist as vehicles have a very private and wrap choose spirituality and i think that's a good word to use without in raptures not in the sense of which the fellow to be on the famous sculpture trees
the kids a be definitely hit britain remaining there may be act in that they didn't see it in that church from with all the be on all the lights in this letter with a little theatre decision somebody puts in the coin of the lights go on math practise is going to
yeah and it's a wonderful piece of art tubes it's not that kind of rapture that lorenzo and lorenzo the rapture is a very refined
and deep but quiet bachelorette and economic under that's why i think he holds
such a on
a marvelous attraction to pick two people will see his arm
much like frangelico the same things could be said for angelica although for angelica doesn't seem to be quite as much coverage as he tends to use what would we call to this that was passed like hostel's
it's quieter that way color
mean that az is another italian critic i used my notes said that lorenzo's figures had a had a little more austerity about them and majestic
there's something more austere about now i radicals angelica i think of us to and that's one word i would use so here we have an art critic sign of answers his last year
in his honored eisenberg degrees he calls this the the austerity of lot of lorenzo and elegant austerity
quarter of his design in general that is lorenzo's design would be more direct and resolute than angelica and for the hundred
and he used a much more variety in his paintings which which which sets him off if you look closely at ending if you look immediately and and this has happened to me and i say oh a better to lorenzo and i look at it from germany
if i would take time before saying who it's gotta be a lorenzo and look more the ornamentation a little
secondary stuff going on here that's how one can tell easily and the ransom apart from our function the fearsome ways
ah it's the small detail work in the marginal areas of others pangs that that has some
grasp a lot of critics over centuries if you have issues red green and sport i think they don't like nino video virgin mansions when he does this little paragraph or two on on the ones who he's talking about the the shadows in the towers and end there that little expressions on the t little figures looking out windows and stuff and lauren
source pan existence but he's talking that kind of detail that won't be as prominent something like on cheque whereas the general feeling of opinion may very well said isn't his little details where they differ again mrs from lawn from highs and the art of lorenzo
monaco could best flourish in these margins
for within the scope of de l'arc in chemical stop what he's talking about when you have these like triptychs down on the bottom panel the horizontal they usually have a whole little story going on those figures and life story of st and then you have a or the virgin sitting in a throng and two saints on the side and then a bar you have a whole other store
with angels and god the father and what not going on about so the pinnacles up here the prevent that is that horizontal storyline me
where am i now for within the scope of president not empirical he could exploit a style that was most expressive on an intimate scale and if you look at these little things that they're wonderful wonderful things going on a little teeny teeny configuration doing amazing things
by expanding is simple line you're a doesn't count so his colors to the grandiose size of the coronation of the verge
issue when he was commissioned to do these panels but he defied the inclinations of his spirit vision
so he had fun with it these things that people people would say i commission you to i'm will pay so at such a such to the monastery is your paint the coronation of the virgin mary and st lawrence on one side and so the are change
you'll gabriel on the other and if you could pay my modern space guys that type of thing where he would have fun above in the girl he'd do what they want the media of great from let the other parts of the paintings so let's talk a little bit more in particular about his art just how
how he developed than what he was commissioned to do his first major work once he had become a monk was a panel when we're talking about panels were talking about slabs of wood covered with jess off and then painted overdraft
so what of you remember nicholas his types enough to like that one but i mean he would take a slab of wood and just do it and then pay on top and that's what we're talking about with pounds
he was permission for the chapel they are being gay or card mean you know relevance around reddit for it is probably near florence of influence especially the beginning his career
we know that this was commission and painted and thirteen ninety nine we don't know what it was and it's missing not the majority of lorenzo's work has gone to private collections or was destroyed last but there's quite a bit around and we'll get to that too later on but i mean there's just less
output by as by his workshop
in fourteen or for i'm just going to talk about major works in for because all during this he's doing illumination is a miniature the monastery and teaching inside and more outside once he moves out and make thirty nine days in informal for he did panels for the church of santa monica money and know
whoa and this is famous tourist reference to come on these history in in florence and fact we have one of the we hadn't we have two hours or so yeah i've been there too it's great they are one of them if you've noticed when it was no books on the miniatures that we
have of from foreign so the coral the miniatures that we just got for the library one of them is for neon and family in more there were books but this church was closely align with us throughout our history
in the years fourteen or six and fourteen ten he did a number of panels for the olivette benedictines of san bartolomeo so st bartholomew's zone my oliver group he did have a famous triptych of the madonna with angels
you're certain themes turn paintings that are going to become
i'm kind of is
his mark in the in the art of this day and his his workshop are just going to put him on like by the hundreds and madonna with angels is one of the madonna of humility and we'll talk about that and move there is another one and the cut out process that we normally think of changes
you cut across you think franciscan because the famous ones are francis can have painted cut across this one on his workshop the renaissance workshop to number of secretary of defense so there's another one of his signatures and artistic output of that day this trip to
that he did for the all of that and that is a madonna with the angels enunciation various states all around it into a triptych says arm is now at the uffizi it's one of his paintings que fue
and i'm
at this during the same time he was doing a number of panels for other churches and other monasteries and other groups notably
our church in english st james over the are no above the river st james above the river arno he did a number of panels for that he painted number of panels for the profusion just outside florence and famous cartoon charterhouse he painted for them
and for the arab the come out me not but not in
not the same cycling and move up the one in florence
at this time as a number of houses kemal these houses in florence four five six
most of them small small houses but that's for throughout our history except sort of very few big houses for centuries are one of our signatures and small small communities everywhere from romulus time onwards
also a famous crucifix one of these famous cut out crucifixes that he did for the
man to come out the the commodities hermitage called of foreign it's missing they don't know where it is from as they think you know with a lot of this in the art the largest famous things that are missing are just in private collections are not spoken just treasured by someone who looks up at once
meanwhile a notion that they have no one else does also saint michael of pisa
ah this is a commodity as house pizza pizza we had a number of houses and piece of us
it's a big come on the city in our in our history until this oppressions
in fact just just as a side note at one point in our history we had so many houses that a general chapter decided to set up nine different
like provinces and are a bunch of the houses would be would choose one house as its center for studies information that's another young monk store in peace that they had terminals that says something right go that they are two major houses and piece of that function as
formation and as a starting point at one point
nothing to do for the right
ah in the years fourteen twelve and fourteen thirteen we know that he did a number of miniatures for the antifungals of these l all the weapons again they're always hiring him his people from san bartolomeo they loved his work
and the commissioned him again to do these miniatures and a large panel for
his own monastery was commissioned at the same times when he's working on artisanal part of the time then going across him the huge panel this panel is the famous coronation most visionary it's one of his most famous pieces if not the most fitness
no and here we only have our little segue with a little details from it
which is to get i was precisely in looking for i was hoping to find eisenberg before class because then i can show the coronation so and in large you
a work just work is considered by ardent critics to be one of his best if not the best it is a gothic triptych again
our form with ornamentation and gold work and saints all over the place and benedict and romulus in it and there's a whole i've been addicted keep going on to which often happens is see if you look down at the predominance of these paintings you can see all kinds of little monastic stories going on
classic be going into water and it doesn't matter what the major the same as he'll he'll produce monastic view tools he wants to have fun
the the piece also has three tabernacles on it so often the top of the triptychs the tavern in all the work and entities i guess in those tabernacles he has the holy trinity and the annunciation going on
and then be nobody has the major now three as epiphany mystery going on and various scenes from the life of been at it all through the freedom and so proud pack to get the communion of saints and the theology or history theology going on in this one painting
ah the history of this particular piece is interesting remember it was painted for d'angelo the itself it's or monastery and it was removed from the anchovy towards the end of the fifteen pounds who the end of the sixteenth century in order to make room for another painting by person
name alone whose alone
i've never heard of book i was appalled when i read that they would do those bureau crispy the all kinds of things can go into that sort of thing but they sent it to one of their little their little of dependencies a nappy a coat and san pietro a charity or near chair down
it just this little small house that was joined to his house to florence and the or fortune fourteen and we have hundreds of over our history of little house is going in and out of existence and joining up we come out a fading and whatnot were being suppressed and this a listen to all these little houses
and it was forgotten there and put in storage they didn't even show it and it was considered lost for centuries they've finally found it and eighteen thirty by one
it was an amazing klein was done it was found by one of the famous that i mentioned him already wants million az the famous film lorenzo monaco our critics are students are burdens or monarch and eighteen thirty he founded and from then on it's plenty of the profits will fit together
and as not left sure
that's still there in conservation
he also did it this time another famous panel for the church of san e g
and this is ours is commodities
that's another dependency of of niyamgiri he did a major or back excuse me back into a major panel which we became very fence there and that also adds up your feet see gallery in florence isn't this
the epiphany i think i think it's this one we saw the
i think this was originally and this little dependency and upset egidio and it became to me this is the most famous epiphany of dementia and with your feet
because i guess because i've seen in some
and it's it's an amazing i would love to see a quality predicated solely kid so we can i have a friend at our house version
new hampshire
yeah she says
yeah that's why happens you know
but i don't think it's as or as new from santa giulia with into that doesn't give the original place where it was done pt like firefly
well i'm from my family
you remember a dungeon or was restored at the time and that if always the case with these so many things are missing year
ah when we went there the robert and i ninety three the coronation was missing he was being worked on that we've got to see the other ones we got to serious
when we went down but try to find slide for this and they didn't have
you are still recovering from of he asked the other is still places tarped often
nuff said on that there's still alone
ah in the use fourteen twenty and twenty one twenty true he did a number of frescoes you decided to get into fresco were so he did frescoes and also he does other panels and miniatures paintings all along the way during this time also
but he for he did a panel and festivals for this one chapel in the church of son that the dining car and and fittings soon as any been there
and but when i went there i didn't know i didn't see that job because i didn't know is their next
but these have recently been restored this whole chapels been risk is worth they've recently within the last decade or so on they've worked on frescoes
unless i'm in mixing them with something that's back pressure
he also did the the fresco paintings are portraits of doctor or the gary and petrarch so petrarch adopting which are in that chapel and that's why it's famous because of those two portrait why
but he also did the other fresco work there and the of pain if you happen to go here
ah artists the art critics liked to look at that this chapel as a major turning point for him
with greater expression in his technique and this movement and variety of figures that he's using unique and in this work from treat for previous work
a lot of his miniatures at which still we still know all our can be found in a library and the laurentian library effect warms more answer laurentian library in milan are in florence have you been there
you are these new books are two great extent the photos we have of works are from that village
library where can you find holdings his holdings but in the united states and this be good to know off your in on over the years of you're in a city like if you're stuck in
a brooklyn are you can go to brooklyn museum and see a woman's of
ah the metropolitan museum of art and your has blown into the san diego art museum has a major madonna the sore for madonna this again this one away carrier carrier for bookstore that a schmuck madonna humility problem but other humility there's one of the
at san diego and when i was down there for the
the last term no two times ago for the formation directors workshop i went specifically on our free day a free afternoon to the museum and they had roped off it said the upper gallery is
is closed off or just for one day we beg your pardon
we're doing some vacuum in your tank and i and i said why did you make me pay the whole shebang
is one of our painters can i just took taught them to go with me i will touch anything and dung it
like i was talking to a stone wall you know
anywhere no compassion ones so i still have seen the next person vs san diego should probably see see it on behalf of community and given slider which you can if they have one but for robert and because at some point we might hope to have carved smooth conditions the summons
art pieces the national gallery in washington has lorenzo the nelson atkins museum in kansas city does the have to their and i have seen them as i've seen those pieces that's where i got mixed up with you rather than the engine running goose chase in boston i was
listening to museums or
oh and toning certain mister i was very you had the directed museum on my blog
he was and they kept insisting they had another once a and the have to look it up the computers and everything that we kept saying one of our monks the seen this piece i'm sarah
ah the toledo museum of art house will zone
ah the brooklyn as i said yale university has another things a special mulches so if you ever at yale or princeton is either one of those ivy league cases their libraries have a number in their galleries and number of issues done by either load and so
there's this three ways lorenzo's art comes to us but to monaco lorenzo and workshop and then just the workshop of neurons and they look like words or monocles there's just as his students and underlings and that's just adversely excuse me i'm signed the workshop
of is political
the norton simon museum and pasadena seeing them as a lovely predominant in there by the way you ever had the chance to an impassable it's a wonderful seem to go just for walk through it's like
underground i mean half of it is underground and it's meant the almost caverns and than the other side is very very lights and it's just like a night dayton it's wonderful place to go to cleveland detroit who harvard also have all the stuff at harvard seems to be permanently on both sides have ever seen
there are also things and private collections that we know about the new york city and scars to longer
probably much else that i don't know there are two museums that have questioned the bowl probably not the runs in one piece is one as ball to one at the walters art gallery and the other one is a princeton university made this think that those are not really the answer all
favorite subjects for his paintings basically we're the diamond ability or team to the sad virgin mary's i mean she looks sad
