Artist Notes
© 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved The year: 1568 The place: The Isle of Man A sparsely-outfitted monk's cell contains little in the way of furniture or possessions.Most notable are the cross in front of the slit-fort window and the worn fresco on the wall next to the entryway. A partially visible, lumpy-looking straw bed and a chest are the only other concessions to basic human habitation. Even the prie-dieu is bare wood, and there are no armrests provided. There is a great amount of detail in this painting, especially in the fresco and the cross, so it's best viewed as closely as possible.
