Notes on Owen Lattimore:

When I look at the search phrases that people type into the search engines to find my site the name Owen Lattimore is usually in the top 5. Owen Lattimore is still controversial long after he and Senator Joe McCarthy are dead. Frankly the more I research the more I am convinced that Owen Lattimore was a Red Chinese agent.

Van Eyck's The Arnolfini Marriage:

One of the most popular pages in my notes is Van Eyck's The Arnolfini Marriage. When I can get good images I have been adding classical paintings with rugs in them to my notes. Jan Van Eyck was using a projected image from which to trace his work. That being the case then there is a high probability that this was a virtually exact rendering of a contemporary carpet on the floor.
