The Hunchback of Notre Dame



The Hunchback of Notre Dame (original French title, Notre-Dame de Paris) is an 1831 French novel written by Victor Hugo. It is set in 1482 in Paris, in and around the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. The book tells the story of a poor Gypsy girl (La Esmeralda) and a misshapen bell-ringer (Quasimodo) who are both victimized by a corrupt priest (Claude Frollo). The book is largely a work of social criticism

This is a lovely understated painting of Charles Laughton as Quasimodo. He seems to be in a reflective mood, hiding in the shadows of the cathedral of Notre Dame.
Knowing what a Huge Lon Chaney, Sr. fan you are, Jim, I am surprised you went with Laughton's portrayal. But it works.
How relevant the story of THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME seems today with the Priest abuse scandals that have recently rocked the Catholic church.

what a gem. i think the key to this painting is it's simplicity. i love the way you've directed the focus to the face and hands with the added touches of detail. certainly this piece is a reflection of your own tourtured soul. judging by the quality of your artwork, i'd guess that you truly are a sensitive and caring human. pleeeeese keep posting these wonderful works of art, sweet spirit.

Xanax (Alprazolam) is used to treat anxiety disorders and panic attacks. Alprazolam is in a class of medications called benzodiazepines. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Unlike other benzodiazepines which must be taken several times a day, Xanax is a once-daily formula, helping you all day long.
