Covid Art 72: EB 1895: Ivory Tower Knowledge
If you’ve read other posts, you’ll know I inherited the Encyclopedia Britannica and it inspired me in 2012 to make a series of works. In this one, paired with an antique photo of a fortress on a river or on a Mediterranean bay, such as Aigues Morte, my favorite walled village, where history comes alive. Perhaps it was a Templar property, or another religious group embarking on the Crusades. I love the shadow it casts on the water.
