Children's book illustrator Gennady Spirin is one of my favorites. Here's a scene from The Sea King's Daughter



And this one is from The Lord is My Shepherd:



He's kind of a modern heir to the Flemmish! Wow.

Why do the hills have eyes? Does that symbolize something?

Any idea of what the eyes mean? I suspect it has something to do with the fact he was a Freemason, but otherwise, I can't recall any parallel in his biography.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Mass of St. Gregory, author unknown, but probably an Aztec. Rather a mosaic than a painting, but anyway.

I believe Gauguin was influenced by Redon. Or was it the other way around? I'm not sure.

Nobody does nature painting quite like the Chinese (and influenced cultures). Even when it's not as sweeping and impressive as a Neoclassical offering, it still captures that certain something that makes nature scenes either so relaxing or so inspiring.

Not sure who painted it, but it represents the Babylonian captivity. I love its expressive simplicity.

Caresses by Fernand Khnopff. I don't know why Oedipus and the Sphinx are so lovey-dovey or why they both have the same face (Khnopff's sister and frequent model, Marguerite), but hey. Symbolist painting's like that.




More Khnopff:
