Thursday, July 30, 2015

Last installment from this visit to the San Antonio Museum of Art. So happy to see the 'Diego Rivera in San Antonio' exhibit, which included his 'The Bricklayer' from 1904, done when he was just 18:

'Saint Isidore the Farmer' by Joaquin Castanon, 1866 with him interestingly not dressed as the 12th c. Madrid farmer (according to tradition, he spent so much more time with the church than his fields that G-d sent an archangel to help with his plowing), rather here he's depicted in 19th c. Bolivian dress:
