Gorgeous!

The Guardian of Paradise is weird -- I assumed it was modern until I looked at the date -- because it struck me as so openly gay.

But I guess the canvas closet is like the celluloid closet -- if you don't know what you're looking at, you really don't know.

Aren't all angels gay? Or is it vice versa?

I have lately become much enthused with the Symbolist painters. Click the "symbolist" tag on this post to see a couple of earlier posts.
