No Unnecessary Gatherings


The work of Spanish artist José Manuel Ballester – familiar old canvases with the humans removed – newly apposite in the current climate. 

(Above (from top): Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” (1498); Sandro Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” (c.1486); Francisco Goya’s “The Third of May 1808” (1814); Jan Vermeer’s “The Allegory of Painting” (1668); Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica” (1937);  Diego Velázquez’s “Las Meninas” (1656)  and Théodore Géricault’s “The Raft of Medusa” (1819)

    But if I was to pick one
