a photographic travel journal
by JANE LEWIS
About the Book
A collection of photographs by Jane Lewis, who is better known as a painter and printmaker. Taken during a two week stay in Bologna in 2009, they are a subjective sample of the rich artistic heritage of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The images range from the beautiful to the surreal and sinister.
The contents of this book are “snapshots taken to remember in better detail the truly remarkable”.
Four places are featured - MODENA with its fantastic fairytale cathedral; RAVENNA famous for its early Byzantine art; the Romanesque carvings of FERRARA; and the elegant city of BOLOGNA with its amazing University Museum of anatomical waxworks.
Jane Lewis is a painter and printmaker, and has devoted most of her life to visual art - from childhood, through college and teaching, to practising exclusively as a freelance artist. She has worked in watercolour, etching, drawing, digital media, and constantly in oil on canvas and pastel. Her compositions are not directly inspired by dreams, but they may be a kind of waking dream. Go to: www.janelewisartist.com www.janelewis-artprints.com
