From time to time I post about art from Daniel Mitusi, the talented Catholic artist who has worked under the inspiration of the Medieval period as well as Japanese prints. He gets proper inculturation.
You may recall that his little daughter has spent quite a bit of time in the hospital. You know what that means.
Here are a couple more pieces which he sent recently.
The first is a treatment of a psalm. HERE
I was especially amused by the rabbits, which multiply along the decorative margin.
The second is an ink drawing of the dream of Joseph when the angel reveals Herod’s plot and tells the Holy Family to flee to Egypt. The image of what the angel wants is depicted on the raised fan. Very cool.
Marvelous. And there is a reference to the cherry tree. HERE
His site is HERE. Please visit.
Speaking of the cherry tree, recently when I was in Washington DC, I saw the exhibit of images of Mary. They had a well-known Barocci on loan from the Vatican Museum of the Rest on the Flight into Egypt. Joseph, with a beautiful smile, hands the diminutive Lord a branch with cherries.
