Queen Semiramis Building a City
Queen Semiramis Building a City
Oil on Canvas
24" X 28"

I always loved Degas' early history painting of this same subject. In his painting, Queen Semiramis and her entourage survey the vast landscape before them intended for the new city. In my painting Queen Semiramis' followers are actually shown building the city. Degas has always been a central inspiration of mine.
