La Bohémienne Endormie (The Sleeping Gypsy). Henri Rousseau. 1897.


It’s been a full moon weekend so here’s some moon-themed art:

1. A beautiful mezzotint by Japanese artist Yozo Hamaguchi. I don’t know for sure what the fruit and veg are supposed to represent, but I like to see it as a lemon moon and corn clouds. What do you see?


Corn. Yozo Hamaguchi. 1959.

2. Dancing in the Moonlight by Thin Lizzy.
