Temple of Delight. 30" X 40". Oil on Linen.
detail from Temple of Delight.
Ay, in the very temple of Delight
Veiled Melancholy has her sovran shrine,
Though seen of none save him whose strenuous tongue
Can burst Joy’s grape against his palate fine;
His soul shall taste the sadness of her might,
And be among her cloudy trophies hung.
-Final Stanza of Ode on Melancholy by John Keats
