Dinosaur geology: Sedimentary sequence at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico
Triassic Chinle Formation (red, foreground); Jurassic Entrada Formation (red/white cliffs); Jurassic Morrison Formation (slopes); Cretaceous Dakota Sandstone (upper cliffs). Aside for having been the residence of the artist Georgia O'Keeffe, Ghost Ranch, near Abiquiu, New Mexico, is also famous for the discovery of a mass mortality site of the dinosaur "Coelophysis". An expedition of the American Museum of Natural History led by Edwin Colbert found the site in 1947. Coelophysis was a small carnivorous dinosaur of the late Triassic.

Allegory of Fortune Featured Painting Image

Allegory of Fortune

Allegory of Fortune. Lippi, Lorenzo 1606-1665. The depiction of a human figure personifying an abstract concept such as youth or beauty is called an allegory. The young woman in this painting is an allegory of fortune and the monkey, who appears to be selecting playing cards, symbolises chance. The association of fortune with man?s ability to shape his destiny by swift, decisive action was a popular concept during the Renaissance. It derived from the classical idea of fortune being an unpredictable force which must be seized to ensure success. Born in Florence, Lippi was a pupil of Matteo Rosselli from whom he learnt the fine, searching drawing skills of the Florentine workshop tradition. During the 1630s Lippi drew increasingly from nature, a skill described by his biographer Balducci as ?his pure imitation of reality?. Lippi also developed a restrained, classical style that abandoned the richly patterned fabrics and elaborate jewellery favoured by other Seventeenth century Florentine painters
