The above are my recent images
of detail from Anselm Kiefer’s “Midgard” (1982-85).

Detail from Seacoast at Trouville (Claude Monet; 1881)
Detail from Summer Night’s Dream (The Voice) (Edward Munch; 1893)
Detail from Ravine (Vincent Van Gogh; 1889)
I Dreamed I Could Fly (Jonathan Borofsky; 2000) put me in mind of the ceremony in the cheesy but frightening sci-fi flick Logan’s Run.
Detail from Jackson Pollock’s Mural (1943)
An Olmec mask
Detail from Double Portrait (Max Beckmann; 1946)
All of the above are images I took during a recent visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
