Justice by moonlight.

Divine Vengeance and Justice move swiftly to catch a fleeing criminal. Made as a study for a monumental painting for a criminal courtroom in the Palace of Justice in Paris, this dramatic scene certainly conveys the inspiration of Roman Poet Horace.

"Retribution rarely fails to pursue the evil man."

Justice and Divine Vengeance Pursuing Crime, about 1805 - 1806, Pierre-Paul Prud”hon. J. Paul Getty Museum.

Rain is the natural element for romanticism. A dripping fir is a hundred times more sexy than a sunburnt palm tree, and more primal and contemplative, too. A steady, wind-driven rain composes music for the psyche. It not only nurtures and renews, it consecrates and sanctifies. It whispers in secret languages about the primordial essence of things.
