When I first visited Portsmouth Cathedral, I saw the wonderful tondo by Andrea Della Robbia. This small artwork evokes Motherhood, divinity, and fruit, combining the earthly with the divine.
In the chilly grey winter days of February, how nice to dream a while of the sun and sea of the south Italy coast.
Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, and me. Printmaking, fakes and fine art.
…which brings me back to thinking about the Divine Comedy of Dante. In Dante’s time, like our own, there were corrupt politicians and greedy bankers too. But he had a solution for this – to send them into the bowels of hell.
