Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

Saw Jeremiah today and yesterday

In an exhibition about angels in the Catharijneconvent in Utrecht, where I was today, there was an etching by Chagall abut the calling of Jeremiah. He is a prophet from the Bible. It was really odd to see this picture because yesterday I have prepared, and edited material for a lesson about the tarotcard Judgement. I use this etching is an illustration for a spread about the calling of Jeremiah. It is once in the two years that this lesson comes around. It was a surprise to see it in reality today.
