Jean-Francois Rafaelli paintings added to Geocoded Art

painting by Jean-Francois Raffaelli (1850-1924).  Raffelli's hallmark are architectural lines which are as crisp as the lettering in his signature.  The foreground figures have a slight cartoon aspect to them, but the expert shading and fading of the hillside produces a remarkable 3D realism effect.  The shimmering color of the water and the steady rise to the pinnacle of the Basilica Saint Michel together produce a ffeeling of a warp in the continuum that comes when you know what it was like for a person to stand in this place at that time.
