“Triumph of Death” – 1974

Click on image for an enlargement.

While the “Triumph of Death” theme has been a title used by artists through the centuries, no interpretation was ever anything like Hirshman’s 1974 piece – a Sergeant Pepper-like backdrop of the famous, replacing the Beatles with the Grim Reaper in the foreground. This image (unfortunately of low resolution), includes a Who’s Who game of identification in a pyramidic cornucopia of the well-known and not-so-well known. Even the Reaper himself embodies the image of Orson Welles in Shakespearean guise.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page
    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
    or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.

    I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
