ECCE HOMO


The amazing technical dexterity of the pre-raphelites has always amazed me — and, because several of them leaned towards agnosticism and even athesism, so has their choice of biblical subject matter. Their religious paintings can therefore have had only one raison d’etre: to generate the millions of pounds they so often did —  no mean feat for living artists in the late nineteenth century.

Anyway, all that aside, I thought I’d have a crack at a religious portrait. And here it is — probably subliminally influenced by Johannes Grunewald’s paingings — and available at a peppercorn price.
