Welcome to the Gallery of Art Earthmann. I have not yet had the time to transpose very many of my numerous works of art and slide photography into the digital format. Therefore, I have elected, for the time being, to simply share with you some of my favorite works from art history. Enjoy!

 
  (Simply click on image to enlarge it!)  
  Peter Paul Rubens Heinrich Berann M.C. Escher  
 

Peter Paul Rubens painted the above work. He was very famous in his country of Flanders, present day Belgium The King appointed him Secretary of State, and Rubens succeeded in negotiating a treaty with the King of Spain by puting the King and his family in a huge mural. This postponed Spain attacking Flanders for several years.

 

Crucifixion by Rubens

Heinrich Berann painted the work below of Yosemite National Park in California for the National Park Service. He is regarded as the world's most famous alpine panorama painters and his works have appeared in National Geographic Magazine several times. His panoramas of the European alps are well-known throughout Europe and can be seen on posters at train stations and in numerous tourist guide brochures, like the one above of the Eiger, Monk, Youngfrau massif above Interlaken, Austria.

 

Yosemite by Berann

During World War 2 Professor Berann was under strict orders not to sign any of his works, as the Germans didn't want the allies to know about his military cartographic talent. He instead devised an elaborate baroque design for his "initial" which was adequately difficult to forge.

I had the opportunity of visiting him at his home and studio in Innsbruck, Austria in 1995. He generously gave me several tips on how I could improve my own panorama paintings. He even gave me a free copy of the main 200 page book with numerous color reproductions that covers his prolific life. He was obliged to get it published in Japan with Japanese copy, because he couldn't get enough financial respect from any European country.

M.C. Escher's "Waterfall" is the above lithograph. He is undoubtedly one of the most clever and intellectual artists in world history. Notive how the water appears to be flowing downward in the "W" channel, yet it ends up being above the starting point, wherein the water... falls!

 

 
Sphere by Escher
Above, the "Descent from the Cross" by Rubens, shows why he was famous for paintings of both the profane and the sacred.
Above, critics regard this lithograph as Escher's masterpiece as far as eloquent and sublime modeling is concerned. This is also a self-portrait of Escher.
Last Supper by Rubens


Northern Cascades by Berann
Reptiles by Escher
Above, The Last Supper by Rubens. Above, the northern Cascades in North America by Berann.
Above, lizards crawl out of the space of two dimensions... into that of three... although really only remaining in two! Very clever lithographs indeed!
Below, the Andromeda galaxy is 2.9 million light years from our own Milky Way galaxy. It is very similar in design to ours, and it is also the nearest galaxy.

Above is a Hubble telescope photograph of my favorite nebula, the Hourglass Nebula.

Does this prove that God has a sublime sense of humor... or does the Los Angeles zoo prove it more?
