I have to write an 8-10 page paper on this painting. Tomorrow I meet with the professor, after which I will have a much better idea of what the paper is supposed to cover, and tomorrow I also plan on going to the university library and enlisting the help of the librarian in charge of art history… however, I know this is a learned group of people and thought that it was worth a shot, if a shot in the dark, to see if anyone here happened to have any ideas for where to look.
Artstor.org doesn’t have the painting, that I can tell. I can’t seem to find any articles about the painting. I can go to the Cleveland Museum of Art and look at the painting (and already have once, but will do so again) but I need more to go on and I’m kind of panicking at how little I’m finding online.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what other avenues I might explore? (I can come back tomorrow with more specifics about the paper.)
I have read some biographical data about Ribera, but would like to read more. I have read about the mythology of Adonis, but other than that I haven’t done much :X
