Medieval Wanderings


30” X 40”
oil on canvas

This painting is an allegorical tapestry which reads left to right and light (sun) to dark (stars). On the right (the painting’s left) is the pinnacle of Jesus’ temptation, and then the tree of knowledge with an emerald serpent. Lucifer, the fallen angel, spreads his wings above the three Marys and an angel, who kneels in front of the Virgin Mary with the Christ child. Two angels kneel on her left. Below, two figures appear; one is an angel holding a flower (“Beauty’s plea” from Shakespeare’s sonnet). On the left a mounted St. George in armor rides to meet Lucifer. As the sun rises behind the heavenly city, pilgrims enter into its gate.
