tapestry angel at the Met

Although I attended the annual Dalvero Academy Holiday gathering at the Met last night, I wasn’t able to make too many drawings of the beautiful Christmas tree as I usually do. This drawing of one of the Neopolitan Baroque Crèche angels that adorn the tree is from the archives. AKA an old sketchpad. more…

While drawing, I was inspired by the tapestries on the walls of the medieval section that flank the tree with their intricate weaves and classic stories. I am always drawn to those tapestries every time I pass through. And every time I stop to look I discover something I never saw before. It’s really something when a piece of art continues to reveal. Lives and breathes and changes. Just as miraculous as the event that is depicted under the tree! – Despina
