Pinacoteca di Brera by Julie Hogg



Pinacoteca di Brera


Façades of baroque or fresco-soaked plaster

hue chroma value systematically

requiring attention we are masters of

reticulated backgrounds plumes and a cape

Canaletto dresses selvedged with canal

wavelets and britches anklet fine rapine-like

features candour pure profoundness of cheekbones

illumine honed numinous disciplined

we’re sublimed your pleasure is mine fervidly

calm and futuristically ever so

revolutionary we’ll walk on dark

earth haughty andirons neoclassically


capricci sitters all Bacardi and Sekt

barely touching hands at the back of our work
