hieronymus bosch - tabletop of the seven sense
 
This painting was intended to be displayed lying flat. With its banderoles containing biblical inscriptions and the four circular scenes set into a dark background in the corners, the format recalls designs of stained glass windows. It has been pointed out that the four scenes in the corners show the Last Four Things:

  • Death
  • Last Judgement
  • Hell
  • Heaven


  • In the center is the Resurrected Christ and the Seven Deadly Sins are graphically shown around him in the shape of a mirror. The tabletop was presumably used by its owner as an object of contemplation and reflection upon human - and personal - sinfullness. The seven sins are:

  • Ira (Anger)--> a woman restrains her angry, drunken husband
  • Superbia (Pride)--> a woman admires herself in a mirror held by a devil disguised as a servant
  • Luxuria (Lust)--> a young man & woman flirt, as they eat & drink while a jester entertains
  • Accidia (Sloth)--> a man dozes in front of a fire while a nun reminds him of his religious duty
  • Gula (Gluttony)--> a fat man and his fat child eat while a thin man drinks
  • Avarcia (Avarice)--> shows a corrupt judge taking a bribe
  • Invida (Envy)--> a bourgeois looks longingly at a wealthy aristocrat, envying his lifestyle
  •

    Thos epaintings are remeniscent of Safavid era works, whcih were inspired by earlier Sassanid works which had some sort of connection to China.

    Yes, thats the one and now I know why it's familiar. Had to study techniques and subject handling for Art History, way back when.  Gericault was one of the artists I chose.  Thanx for the reply, that would have bothered me all dayTongue

     Zagros, if you can, see if you can find some links that show Safavid and sassanid work and [this evening as I have tasks assigned by "superintendent" LOL] I'll post some Art nouveau and also work by Maxfield Parish. If your interested that is, it should be interesting to do a comparison. Farshchian's use of color is more typical of safavid, but general mood is reminiscent of Art Nou.  Which could have been inspired by Sassanid, Who knows?

    Painting by Riza 'Abbasi, Isfahan, 1630. From the end of the 16th century, the human figure becomes more important in paintings and the subjects and treatment are sensuous. Drawings and paintings have a calligraphic quality.

    I guess that on the first picture Erci the pilots of flying carpets are preparing to take off. On the second picture the airport staff on the control tower is taking care for their safety in the air and shouting which direction should they fly to avoid colision with other carpets. Its a famous pictures series called "Air Arabia".

    There's something really primal about this painting, which I like. Unfortunately I'm unaware of the artist's name, but I think it is titled Baucis and Philemon turning into a tree.

    My fiancée tells me she's been dreaming herself as Proserpina, with me taking some of her pomegranate, so I thought this painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti called Proserpine would be a good painting to place on this page.

    Love this picture, which I found earlier while on Facebook. Along with this great picture were these words: "If we all could see the world through the eyes of a child we would see the magic in everything." Mmmmmm, I close my eyes and I imagine baby dragons. Smile

    Inside of me now there's this bit of me wanting that magic.

    OK, this picture is by an artist called Gale Franey, and it is called, Friends and Acquaintances.

    All the paintings seem to be nude girls, really Toltec? Personally, of the ones I have posted, which just happen to contain aspects of nudity, my belief is that the artists painted them that way. Smile

    Nice pieces, Toltec. Love Lowry, and Britain at play, and Our Town, are of the type of his that I favour. Dynamic, but also capturing an essence of the lives of the workers, and maybe at times showing bits and pieces of the lighter side. Was your choice of Munch's The Scream a commentary on the lives and conditions of the people on Lowry's paintings?
