A Week of Kindness Illustration (Woman with Book and Dragon) — Max Ernst

    Am grumbling…wish you sometimes included a little writing about the posts you put up. I’m horribly dim with art and frankly, Wiki doesn’t help. Why is this kindness? Why does the lady keep a dragon in her bedroom? Please help me understand…

      Sorry…okay, so Max Ernst’s A Week of Kindness — Une semaine de bonté — is a surrealist collage “graphic novel” — I wrote about it a little here http://biblioklept.org/2009/03/25/une-semaine-de-bonte/

      I’m not sure what any of it means. I suppose in this image we could make something of the traditional Romantic theme of woman + dragon. Or something with the cross. I dunno.

    Laughing! So basically, you can interpret it anyway you want and not look like an idiot. I’m imagining she’s saying, ‘Christ. Did I really slug that much gin last night?’

    Your turn…
