The Art & Architecture of Church Buildings
Churches reflect the art and architecture of the era in which they were built. I'll discuss the house church as well as one of the world's most famous cathedrals.

Pegasus the Winged Horse in Art
Pegasus (in Latin) or Pegasos (in Greek) was a beautiful winged horse that could fly. Its image was reproduced on ancient coins and vessels along with their gods. I'll discuss which art and why.

Matisse – Modern Artist & Colorist Extraordinaire
The ‘mighty’ Matisse was admired and threatened by Picasso. Matisse’s use of the color red is legendary, but little may be known of his family carrying on his legacy.

Henri Rousseau - Modern Artist
A ‘painter’s painter’ whose work inspired fellow artists Picasso, Léger, and Kandinsky. I will discuss Rousseau’s style of ‘magical realism’.

Witch Art in Renaissance Europe
An interest in sorcery and witchcraft in the late 15th and early 16th century developed from Homer’s Odyssey about Circe, the Greek goddess of magic. I'll discuss the works by two German artists with the first name, Albrecht.

The Circus Theme in Art - Toulouse Lautrec
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec showed signs of having mental disorders in 1899 possibly due to alcoholism. Sent to a nursing home in Neuilly, he made drawings of entertainers of the circus, instead of the bars and brothels. I’ll discuss his famous posters as well as his fascinating circus drawings.

Artists Who Paint Themselves & Profession in Art
Throughout the history of art, artists such as Michelangelo and Velázquez have painted themselves into their paintings. Is it possible others painted using symbols of their profession? I'll explain who, what and why?

If Man Had Wings to Fly – Interpretations in Art
There are scientific reasons (along with a dose of common sense) as to why a man cannot just attach a set of wings and fly like a bird. But in mythology, the Bible and in the minds of some artists, angels (and mortals) do have wings and can fly. I’ll discuss why.

Delvoye’s ‘Pig Farm’ – Art or Animal Cruelty ?
Wim Delvoye should not be given the title of ‘artist’ unless you believe it is humane to tattoo an animal (a pig in this instance) in order to sell its decorated hide for profit. I, for one, will call it what it is.

Sale of Munch’s 'The Scream' Breaks Records
In May 2012 the only version of this iconic painting in a private collection went on Sotheby’s auction block with results above estimates.
