Enta Habibi, Egon Schiele, John Singer Sargent, et al

This morning (it is a holiday in Madrid) I have been playing around with images and sound and made this test video. It includes some of my favorite paintings by Egon Schiele, John Singer Sargent and others (many of which you will recognize from this Grave Error). For the background music I put one of my favorite songs, “Enta Habibi” by the Yuri Honing Trio from their album Orient Express. Because of the song’s obvious Arabic flavor (I am not sure if it is Fairuz singing), of course, there are more repetitions of Sargent’s paintings than of the others.
