    Flight of Night, Paul Manship, 1916, bronze, Smithsonian American Art Museum.

    From label:
    Paul Manship often used a flying figure to symbolize the passage of time. The woman in Flight of Night is probably Artemis, Greek goddess of the hunt and moon, who was chased from the sky every morning by her twin brother, Apollo.

    Daphne Todd OBE (born 27 March 1947) is an English artist who was the first female President of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters from 1994–2000 and who won the BP Portrait Award 2010 with a painting of her 100-year-old mother's corpse.

    She studied at the Slade 1964-71. In 1983 she won 2nd prize in what is now the BP Portrait Award, and in 1984 a "special commendation". She was elected a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 1985. She became a Freeman of the City of London in 1997 and received an Hon. Doctorate of Arts from De Montfort University in 1998.

    In 1985 she won the Hunting Art Prize for oil painting with her picture "Four Spanish Chairs".

    I think she is rather wonderful.

    Ecce H0mo (Behold the Man), Elías García Martínez, 1930, fresco, Sanctuary of Mercy church, Borja, Spain.

    In 2012, Cecilia Giménez, an amateur art restorer, attempted the restoration of a fresco (see left image), but disastrously botched the job (see right). Ironically, Giménez‘s failure became so well known, it has led to something for a tourism boom for the small town of Borja.
