Pisanello, Saint George and the Princess of Trebizond (detail)


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    A work in brown, black, and white-no blue (skies), or red. Saint George is looking to heaven, the princess over a part of the original, and not just looking out of the picture, and the horse looking right at us, but (do I have this right?) with a look of sadness.
    When you give me material like this, I have to see what it is about, so I had to look up Trebizond (it actually had a princess!), etc. The arts can motivate one to expand one’s knowledge of the past.
