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.

The Kiss in Art – What’s in a Name ?
'The Kiss' has been a popular subject in art since the Romanticism of the late 1800s. It may just be a sign of affection in art or 'the kiss' may take on a different meaning and title. I’ll discuss the controversy surrounding this social gesture.

Hudson River Valley Artists & Idealized Landscapes
Thomas Cole and his pupil Frederick E. Church painted romantic landscapes. Were these idyllic settings a truthful record of nature in the 19th century or did these artists edit their works to satisfy their buyers’ desires?

Vespucci Notes Hold Key to Identity of Mona Lisa
The most recognized painting in the world, with her enigmatic smile, Mona Lisa’s true identity may finally be revealed due to the discovery of notes written in the margin of a book in the Heidelberg University Library in Germany.

Endangered Threatened Animals Used in Art Objects
While visiting the MFA in Boston, I realized how some animals and species are now endangered or threatened due to the demand for certain materials for ornamental purposes. The exhibit displays examples of jewelry made from these ‘natural’ treasures.
