“Study of the Victoria from the domed room –
the Rulers’ Hall – of the Berlin Zeughaus by Fritz Schaper 1880/1885”
Gouache on paper,
G Caruso, 2019
The winged Victoria, or goddess of victory, was painted by G Caruso after the 19th c sculpture by Fritz Schaper which can be found in the Berlin Zeughaus. In G’s rendition the broken arm, damaged during WWII, can be clearly seen. It is as if she has persevered despite handicap and yet her moment of victory is also fleeting, as is evidenced by the way her feet barely touch ground. Is she landing or departing?
“Wintering Rose Hips” Watercolor on paper,
Mira O’Brien, 2020
The rose hip was painted by Mira O’Brien during one of the Fall Botanical Watercolor classes. Despite the beauty of the flower, it is the fruit of the rose that contains its most powerful medicinal properties. A boost to the immune system to all who dare past the thorns. Long after the flowers have faded, the rose hips provide a flash of red all winter long.
