Arty Tuesday: AIC – Palm House by Blechen

I was struck by the vines and climbing plants in this huge panel. Since I live in the subtropics, I’m very accustomed to seeing plants try to take over, but in this case it’s so indulgent and beautiful.

The Interior of the Palm House on the Pfaueninsel Near Potsdam by Carl Blechen (1834)

October’s art was brought to you by my visit to the Art Institute of Chicago last month.
