Izabella of Portugal
The portrait of Isabella of Portugal, Duchess of Burgundy by Rogier van der Weyden, the early Netherlandish painter, was chosen by me as I was mesmerized by the power of her personality. The artist used modest palette, but that emphasized the inner strength of the third wife of Duke Philip the Good.
L’inconnue de la Seine
It was cold and windy in Krondstat (port city near Saint Petersburg, Russia). I met her on the window of an abandoned shipyard. She was calm and mysterious. She has many stories with intriguing details. One version of her death is drowning in Seine of Paris, the other one tells about bohemian life, artists and opium. We don’t know for sure. The only fact is that she is enigmatically attractive. I continue invention of the new collage stories about her.
