Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I'd love to see this as a painting, the cloth and the objects in flat colours with no perspective. Perhaps that would contravene your approach, which is so much about time and meaning - perspective in the wider sense... But then again perhaps not, because your words also bring the cloth, the past, closer to us...

Thanks, Jean! I could try, though I think Matisse kind of owns the "red tablecloth" still life and interior! At least, those paintings are what I think of immediately, and they make me wonder if I could say anything for myself.
