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.

    Great art drawing attention and putting man in his place. Yet, here we are, rocketed into that other world shortly after being limited to floating on wooden boats on vast seas of our own. Beware of the pride and arrogance that man may hold before his creator.

    What is man that You should consider him?

    He was a master of light and very modern for 1865.
