Cats in Culture

A look at the cultural importance of cats to humans down through the millennia, examining what, exactly, the portrayal of cats says about us rather than vice versa. Released for International Cat Day 2021.

Etched into my Mind: Gustave Doré

I take a look at one of my favourite artists, Gustav Doré, most famous for his etchings (mostly wood, sometimes metal) but who was also a remarkable painter and illustrator.

I go through a few of my favourite pieces, mainly from La Comedia Divina, The Divine Comedy, by Dante Alighieri, Paradise Lost, by John Milton and Doré’s etchings for the Bible.
