Carlo Crivelli

I’m presently reading Umberto Eco’s History of Beauty and am coming across a number of artists I was not familiar with.  Here are some of the works of Carlo Crivelli:

  1. Loved Foucault’s Pendulum, was less impressed with The Name of the Rose and never even finished The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.

  2. I seem to recall trying to read The Name of the Rose but not getting very far.

    I’m enjoying the History of Beauty – I’m being introduced to lots of new works and artists, which I hope to explore.

    I’ll read a little bit about Foucault’s Pendulum and see if it might be to my liking.

  4. Crivelli is amazing – a real one-off, even by the standards of his time. The National Gallery’s website is worth a look if you want to see more of his work (they have an excellent collection of it)…
