(at the Metropolitan Museum of Art)
It never occured to me how photogenic medieval Christendom might have been. I like the color and the expression, the rouge and lipstick, and the abstract decorative patterns on the costume. As religious icons, they are doll-like and strangely animate. For some reason, they don’t scare the hell out of me. I think it’s the cheerful redness that first caught my attention to this group of figures at the Met. If you scroll down the page, I like the visual conversation they create with Higgs Boson.
