Painting of the Day: The Ghauts at Benares, by William Hodges. 1787.
The way he's handled Joseph's feet is interesting.
Painting of the Day: The Shipwreck, by Joseph Vernet. 1759.
Today is the feast day of St. Joseph of Leonessa, so here's a picture of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen and Saint Joseph of Leonessa, by Giova....
I'm not sure what's going on here. Fidelis appears to be teaching a cherub how to roll a drunk, while Joseph is praying fervently that they don't get caught. Of course, I could be misinterpreting things. Nice painting, though.
