Lovely Bones

After becoming reaquainted with Jan Mankes (Keulse Pot met Reigersneb en Judaspenning, above), we've become a bit obsessed with his palatte, composition and rendering style. The bird skull, a common motif in his still lifes, is such a beautiful element that we searched out a bit more skeletal imagery. Here are a few of our favorites:

Jan Mankes, Reigersneb en Boekje

Mankes, Stilleven (buffelschedel)

Mankel, Witte Muizen op Perkementenboek

Mankel, Stilleven mit Schedel op Boek

Karsh, Georgia O' Keeffe

Alberto Giacommetti, Head-Skull

Daniel Spoerri, Nicky Langhase
