А вот другой любимейший художник, из другого полушария - представитель т.н. "Кельтского возрождения".

John Duncan
[Scottish Symbolist Painter, 1866-1945]
He was born in Dundee, Scotland, the son of a cattle dealer. He was a great experimenter with techniques and much of his work is in tempera. His subject-matter was rooted in the Celtic Revival and the Pre-Raphaelite tradition, but he also painted 'straight' landscapes. Many regarded him as a mystic, and he confessed to hearing 'fairy music' while he painted.

(По преданию святой Колумба (521 - 597), почувствовав приближение смерти, cтал обходить знакомых по всей стране, прощаясь с ними. На дороге к нему подошла белая лошадь и заплакала).
