The expectation that Antichrist would appear as a man in the Last Days to deceive and persecute Christians before the Last Judgement is not biblical, since only contemporary opponents of Christianity are labelled ‘antichrists’ in the Bible (1 and 2 John). Later exegetes, however, interpreted many enemies of God’s people from biblical and apocryphal texts, Early Christian history, and the apocalyptic visions of Daniel and Revelation as prefiguring or symbolizing a tyrannical future Antichrist. Illustrated ...

Chilean, 20th – 21st century, male.

Born 1949, in Santiago.

Painter. Figure compositions.

Gonzalo Cienfuegos Browne studied art at the Catholic University of Chile, the Escuela Nacional de Pintura y Escultura La Esmeralda in Mexico City and the University of Architecture and Art in Chile. He was given a teaching post at the school of fine arts of the Catholic University of Santiago de Chile. It would be tempting to describe Cienfuegos Browne's work as naive, were it not quite apparent that this is a studied naivety, as is also the case with Botero. His painting shows a deliberate awkwardness, a very careful clumsiness with rich, harmonious colours which are, however, deliberately tempered and golden. Gerrit Henry has described the scenes Cienfuegos paints as 'psychodramas'. Everything in them is enigmatic: the figures, their different postures, the place the scene is set in and the external setting. Characters look often look out at the viewer with no expression. Women are often nude without apparent reason, their bodies plump and iridescent. His interiors show these expressionless faces, postures of silent expectation and a few unusual objects while on the outside the roughly geometric buildings confirm a reference to Chirico....

British fashion designer, active also in France. Half renegade, half romantic, as a designer for Christian Dior, Galliano deftly captured Dior’s essence, creating excessively elegant garments for the modern, youthful woman unafraid of breaking fashion rules (see fig.). Known for his extravagant catwalk shows, over-the-top couture collections and knack for blending street- and high fashion, Galliano’s outrageous adaptations of iconic Dior silhouettes, master tailoring skills and penchant for theatrics, combined with a keen business sense, have earned him the distinction of being one of the most influential designers of his generation....
