Lithophane is an etched or molded artwork in very thin translucent porcelain that can be seen clearly only when back lit with a light source. It is a design or scene in intaglio that appears “en grisaille” (in gray) tones. A lithophane presents a three-dimensional image – completely different from two-dimensional engravings and daguerreotypes that are “flat”. The images change characteristics depending on the light source behind them. Window lithophane panel scenes change throughout the day depending on the amount of sunlight. The varying lightsource is what makes lithophanes more interesting to the viewer than two-dimensional pictures. The word “lithophane” derives from Greek “litho”, which is from “lithos” which means stone or rock, and “phainein” meaning “to cause to appear” or “to cause to appear suddenly”. From this is derived a meaning for lithophane of “light in stone” or to “appear in stone” as the three-dimensional image appears suddenly when lit with a back light source.

George Stubbs (1724-1806) From humble origins as the son of a leather dresser, George Stubbs became one of the most sought after equestrian artists of his era. George Stubbs painted the famous study of ‘Whistlejacket’ that heads this article. Her painting ‘Entanglement’ features the beliefs of the artist with its baroque composition mingled aided by the erotic appearance of bodies enjoying the antics of love and dance. The aluring quality of the work is noticeable in the undulating figures that are, concurrently, real and imaginary. The activity of the lovers gives way to the perspective of their performance in a marriage that is mutually cerebral and personal. Their dance turns into a dance of 4 physiques rather than simply a pas-de-deux. Surrounding these figures, Chromy has created a womb-like setting which encompasses these forms in a textural life of light and shadow. Frank, Peter.

Aside from their value, the artist’s work is also highly prized in terms of kudos, must have, obscenity value. Perhaps quite indicative is both the stolen Geisha print and the attitude displayed by the previous owner of another work that’s mysteriously gone missing, the painting of his beloved doctor in Arles, dr Paul Ferdinand Gachet. The Japanese Ryoei Saito, an industrialist, boasted -shortly before his business went bust- that he was going to have the picture cremated with him when he died. The entire arts world was in shock and outrage, but Saito soon said he’d been joking. Let’s hope he has been, because there’s still no clue as to what happened to the painting after the man, who paid a total of USD82.5 million for it at Christies in New York in 1990, died.

In galleries of modern art, however, the proportion of works treating Christian subjects is much smaller. After centuries of artists actively soliciting the patronage of the church, religion and art are no longer such natural bedfellows. Indeed, in the wake of modernism, it sometimes feels as though art and religion are now strangers to one another, or even downright hostile. When visiting a contemporary gallery or art fair, I rarely expect to see works that treat religious subjects,” says Sliwka. Landau, Ellen G.
