 Sandra Rauch, "SpaceWomen" after Petrus Christus, 2000 

The artist Sandra Rauch series "SpaceWomen" is conceived from portraits of Renaissance women using a photomechanical style she created. The works are on canvas using painting, photography and printing techniques. Each is a little over 27 inches wide and 3 feet high.

  1. Hello Gaye, Whenever I see this lofty and patronizing portrait, I think of Shelley's famous description of Ozymandias, "...whose frown/ And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command/ Tell that its sculptor well those passions read/ Which yet survive..."


  2. Gaye these are truly stunning and I love the size she creates them in, very unique!
