"Gandalf and the Witch King"
(Lord of the Rings)
The White Rider Gandalf faces off against the Witch King and the forces of Mordor at the Gates of Gondor. This comes from a series of pictures I did in the in the late 1970's, most of which never got past the study phase. They were done in Boston and SB, but the oranges and blues in the background and yellows against violets in the white horse and foreground show the heavy Monet influence from the MFA, Boston and foreshadow the pointillistic/impressionist coloring I would develop in the years to come. The action in the figures show the influence of Delacroix and Rubens, especially "Atalanta and the Calydonian Boar" with the soldier's arm shooting up in the foreground. This has always been one of my favorites.
