About this artwork
This artwork is part of the gallery Silk Painting.

Acrylic, Other ~ Fabric

My silk painting, Guardian, is an expression of the two beautiful neoclassical sculptures by Antonio Canova, created for the tomb for Pope Clement XIV at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome titled, The Sleeping Lion, and The Genius of Death. Canova, sometimes called 'the supreme minister of beauty, is known for his most famous works which include Cupid and Psyche (1786-93, Louvre, Paris), and The Three Graces (1813-16, Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg).

My silk painting, Guardian, is an expression of the two beautiful neoclassical sculptures by Antonio Canova, created for the tomb for Pope Clement XIV at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome titled, The Sleeping Lion, and The Genius of Death. Canova, sometimes called 'the supreme minister of beauty, is known for his most famous works which include Cupid and Psyche (1786-93, Louvre, Paris), and The Three Graces (1813-16, Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg).
Some believe the Angel or Genius of Death is always near, and we are like sleeping lions, going about our lives as if we are immortal, never to die and never to pay a consequence for our offenses. Unconscious of the possibility of an afterlife, never knowing the time nor day of our death.
This painting is exhibited and for sale at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut during their exhibit titled, Myths, Fairy Tales and Fantasies. The exhibit 0pens November 16, with a Reception 6:30-9pm. The exhibit closes January 13, 2019.
Acrylic on silk, art tissue and black Gutta
