these are the timesdirty beloved


Googling Samuel Palmer led to a few interesting things, the trove of Blake images at The Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge, especially.
Also at the Fitzwilliam:
William Nicholson's The Girl With a Tattered Glove
Blake's Circumcision of Christ (detail):

and his Judgment of Solomon (detail):

The Palmer search also Art42day led to Jacek Malczewski, whose work has some of that Blakean holy madness.

At the Fitzwilliam clicking on the link that reads:
"If the image does not load click this link for a non-Java display"
will lead to a more reasonable image; Nicholson's girl and the compassion and clarity with which she's painted are the better for that.


And so it begins.
Artdaily doesn't link in to anything, but they have squibs about art they like, and today's was an image by Samuel Palmer at the National Gallery of Canada in an exhibition called British Drawings from the National Gallery of Canada. But try to find Palmer's images there.
Or at the Victoria and Albert.

"At last, a way to end squabbles over which TV channel to watch — without buying a second set. Sharp Corp. has developed a liquid-crystal display that shows totally different images to people viewing the screen from the left and the right.
One person can be surfing the Internet, using the display as a PC screen, while another watches a downloaded movie or TV broadcast. It also works for watching two TV channels: One person can watch baseball while another watches a soap opera."

"...bears on his person traces of habitual..."

In morality and talent, this Raimbaud [sic], aged between 15 and 16, was and is a monster. He can construct poems like no one else, but his works are completely incomprehensible and repulsive...
