Fall of the Rebel Angels
Have you ever seen a work of art that just stops you in your tracks? Everybody has a favourite or two I'm sure. I love work that is intricate and full of detail, or a painting that is deep and dark, but amazing art is hard to come by. So. Here it is. Sitting inside the front door at the Crawford Gallery, Cork. An unfinished piece by Samuel Forde, 1828, his 23 years of life gone. I love the colours, the boat, the body, the absolute enormity of the canvas..UNFINISHED.
