“The sun, at one moment surrounded with scarlet flame, at another aureoled in yellow and deep purple, seemed to be in an exceedingly swift and whirling movement, at times appearing to be loosened from the sky and to be approaching the earth, strongly radiating heat.”
— Dr. Domingos Pinto Coelho, noted lawyer from Lisbon and chairman of the Bar Association (1917)

A Visual Chronicle of Parish Life: Day 2
published 25 February 2014 by Gwyneth Holston

ODAY’S PAINTING is by Jose Gallegos y Arnosa. He was a Spanish painter who particularly excelled at representing the flash of sumptuous fabric against dark interiors.

I particularly like his painting, “The Choirboys” because it captures the matter-of-fact obliviousness that young altarboys frequently display. Also, I love the brushwork he used in depicting the banner and inlay work along the top of the painting. Click on the image to view it larger.
