(Above: Herzog directing in 2005) Granted, “Renaissance man” is an overused term, but it’s true here. Herzog can do almost anything.

But of course, White […]

Claude-Joseph Vernet — “The Tivoli Cascades Between 1740 and 1748” (French, 1748). It’s tough to beat Vernet. A good and dramatic artist.

“Isle of the Dead” by Arnold Böcklin (1827-1901).(There were five versions of this painting, each one slightly different. This is the third, and arguably best, version, from 1883; this version was apparently owned by Adolf Hitler; one version was destroyed by war).
