Ruggiero Rescuing Angelica by Gustave Doré


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.

    Ooh! I wrote a poem about this guy. I LOVE his work. It’s strange and kinda scary too.

  2. This looks very similar to various paintings of Perseus rescuing Andromeda from Cetus. I wonder if this legend borrowed from that Greek myth.

  3. Love Dore, I love the thematic connection between your recent posts…I take it witches are on the agenda
