Rest on the Flight into Egypt

(Zemlinsky Quartet 2)

Rest on the Flight into Egypt zemlinksy quartet 2 art illustration

Watercolour pencil on paper, 14.8 x 20 cm. 2020.

A traditional theme, often a fragile moment of peace in a wide and deep wilderness, especially in Northern Renaissance art. My version was also inspired by the second string quartet of Alexander Zemlinksy, which features moments of ethereal calm amid travails, with a pervasive sense of anxiety.
