"To work for his art the true artist will let his wife starve" - George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)

Fauns and Nymphs

A rare painting by the ill-fated Dutch artist Johannes Torrentius (1589 - 1644). A member of the underground religious sect, the Rosicrucians, he was jailed for twenty-two years by the Authorities. Fauns and Nymphs entered Charles l of England's collection when the artist escaped there, and bears the ruler's seal on the rear. Returning to Holland Torrentius was again arrested and died in prison.
