From the editor…
I am delighted to present the Autumn/Winter 2021 issue of Anthology, as always created for readers who like to explore the wonders of the world and experience and understand new places, cultures and perspectives.
Our cover features Mexican artist and feminist icon Frida Kahlo at work in her studio, beautifully portrayed by Argentinian graphic artist and illustrator, Max Dalton.
The 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, author of The Divine Comedy, widely regarded as one of the greatest works of world literature, was undoubtedly an important cultural event in 2021. We mark this occasion by introducing rarely seen drawings of The Divine Comedy by sixteenth-century artist Federico Zuccari, which are housed at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
Closer to home, the Crawford Gallery in Cork is currently exhibiting fifty of the finest etchings and drypoints by Dutch Baroque painter and printmaker, Rembrandt van Rijn.
Our interiors feature presents the concept of biophilia, which suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. The feature offers useful tips for easy and accessible ways to start introducing elements of biophilic design into our everyday lives.
Last but not least, we focus on dogs, for centuries hailed as humans’ best friends, offering companionship, loyalty and unconditional love.
I sincerely hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to sharing more adventures and stories in the future.
