Thruth behind Serusier’s Painting


Paul Serusier, Portrait of Paul Ranson (1890)


  Previously I posted about a personal issue under the same image and I mentioned that I’d write about that interesting painting. So there it goes…

  Ranson’s costume is depicted by #Serusier which represents their #occult belief and gatherings in Ranson’s #atelier, called #Temple. The circles on the necklace thing represent #zodiac signs and the green shining stone #emeraldtablet which were believed the secret wisdom of universe is carried on it.
Based on ancient Hermetic, they believed in power of magic, universal wisdom of secrets and unifying body and soul which alchemy was the key for.
