a certain delicacy of intent

From my archives. 6" x 9" = 15.2 x 22.9 cm. Background is 19th century ledger paper—the thing itself, not a reproduction. (If you look in the upper left and tip your head to the right, you'll see where the bookkeeper has written "ditto, ditto...") Snake by Albertus Seba. Women are angels from a late 13th century altarpiece by Giovanni Cimabue.


  1. I would buy this if it were a postcard. Simply elegant.

  2. The Albertus Seba snake is beautiful in color and I love the composition.
