Angel Of Hearth And Home

A painting from 1939 by Max Ernst. A disturbing premonition of Europe as it slid nauseously towards its inevitable destruction.

wow! that is a very disturbing painting! It's sort of timeless in a way because I could see a similar piece of art being presented today.

As I have said before, Ernst is a hero of mine. A painter who I have tried to learn from. He invented so much, there is so much to learn.

I agree with Steve in the thought of doing an artistic representation of OUR era!
