“The Archer of the Rose” by Donato Giancola. Very heroic piece, on an epic scale. Illustrators have tended to get a bad reputation as not being “true artists” as the subject of their work is “confined” by their text. I disagree. I have never read the series for which this artwork was commissioned, but it speaks to me as surely as if I knew that indomitable woman with the bow. The picture exists in itself. That’s true art.
