"In previous eras, artistic production was colored by the subtext that human beings, as children of God, have divine origins and that our existence is not transitory, but eternal. This belief provided a deep assurance of the intrinsic significance and value of human life. This is why Sandro Botticelli could paint his ethereal goddesses, revealing a reality only hinted at in the world, as the Black Plague ravaged Europe." - Juliette Aristides, Classical Painting Atelier
Welcome to my Great Art Adventure - to my attempts at capturing glimpses of truth, beauty and the significance of human life that Juliette writes about so eloquently.
