Definitely an image worth a little hot-linking. :) I wonder if there are good prints of it available anywhere?
Says it all!Christine
It just wouldn't seem the same if the Lamb was lying on a couch and the angels were drinking half-caf double latte mocha-mocha with a sprinkling of nutmeg.I've got a question that's always bugged me. Perhaps someone could answer it. If style doesn't matter, then how come folks make such a big deal out of changing it? That question makes my head hurt.
Article about it here ==> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghent_Altarpiece (w/pictures showing the entire altarpiece)Prints here ==> http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Copy-of-the-Adoration-of-the-Mystic-Lamb-from-the-Ghent-Altarpiece-Lower-Half-of-Central-Panel-Posters_i1734087_.htmRe "Anonymous"'s question ... yeah, I've wondered that too. I believe "it doesn't matter" is weasel-term that has different meanings depending on who is speaking and who is listening ...
Museum-quality prints are available here:http://tinyurl.com/cc69nrArt.com also has a fair Cranach collection.
