"The Mercyful Knight" (116x89 cm) oil/canvas - Almeriane 2010
When I first saw the Burne-Jones´ watercolor of the "Mercyful Knight", I was very impressed! This is such a beautiful, mystical & full of feelings painting!!! It would appear it was one of the painter´s favourite artwork. No wonder...
The subject is taken from the life of the Florentine knight St John Gualberto, founder of the Valombrosan Order in 1039., who was miraculously embraced by a wooden figure of Christ while praying at a wayside shrine after forgiving the murder of his kinsman.
Here is my interpretation! This is an oil painting on canvas, 116 x 89 cm size.
"Sketch for The Blessed Damozel"(detail) - Drawing/paper - Almeriane 2010
This drawing is a sketch for "The Blessed Damozel". I took my inspiration from the amazing painting of John Byam Shaw and not the Rossetti´s one. There are 2 of the many girls surrounding the "Blessed Damozel".
Here is my new paintings collection titled "La Melodia de las 7 Torres" (Tune of 7 Towers): a tribute to the Pre-Raphaelites, artists that I admire very much and fascinate me! http://www.almeriane.es/PRF.htm
