Blackpaint 307


Life Drawing

You see the same poses over and over in Old Masters; Titian, for example – saw that bald Joseph from “The Flight into Egypt” at the NG  in another Titian in Venice – at the Frari, a Virgin and Child with St.Peter.

Frari (Venice)

National Gallery

Well, OK, they’re facing different ways and St.Peter’s older…. nice pictures anyway.

Same thing with Tintorettos at the Brotherhood of San Rocce, which is stuffed with Tints; the figure from Milky Way crops up, another from that one of Perseus turning his attackers to stone – Reni, is it? – and Veronese-ish horse on the left of the massive Crucifixion.  Maybe they used the same models, who had their own stock of poses, like today.

This is just an excuse to flag up some life drawings, since I can’t make it to Leonardo this week and have nothing to say else to say.

OK, that’s enough for today; back to words and abstraction tomorrow.
