Perceval's Trance


Previous | Home | Next

Oil, March 2009.

A vista in book cover format. It illustrates the scene from Arthurian legend, where Perceval,
after his arduous quest for the Grail, sees a dead bird and drops of blood on the snow.
He is sent into a reverie remembering his long-lost love Blanchefleur, and her white skin and red lips.
He is so entranced that he is unaware of the knights of Camelot who have come along.
Kay, offended by being ignored, charges at him, but still Perceval is unresponsive.
