ESOTERIC MINUTIA



“The artist’s sense of terribilita creates this deleicate poesia. The sfumato in the faces of the figures in the backgrounds found in the right and left panels of this polyptech allow us to dentify it a Neoplatonism. Its atmospheric perstective further enhances this belief. The contrapposto renderings of each of the subjects and the definitively spiritual aspects of the work suggest to us an artist with Italo-Byzantine roots.”

The curator droned on and on infusing us with his esoteric minutia of each and every work.

“Do you know what he’s talking about?” Emily asked Andrew.

I think he’s pointing up that this particular Botticelli won’t fit in our backpacks.”
