A gorgeous and ominous painting from Spanish master Francesco Hayez entitled "Meditation." Painted in 1851, this painting employs a virtuosic handle on lighting, using soft highlights and rounded shadows to emphasize the symbols in the woman's lap. The painting presents a cognitive dissonance between the high and the low, faith and transgression.
