about

The album's tracks are musical interpretations of destroyed, lost, or not yet found stolen paintings.

The chosen paintings allowed a compositional adventure that ranged from Renaissance early music style to Baroque secular and sacred music elements to more abstract ambient soundscapes.

Salvador Dali's The Art of Cinema (1944), a painting that was part of the cycle The Seven Lively Arts, was destroyed in a fire.

Raphael's Portrait of a Young Man (c. 1513) was stolen by the Nazis, and it has been missing since Word War II.

Carl Friedrich Schinkel's Cathedral Towering Over a Town (c. 1813) was destroyed by fire, but some copies of the painting still exist.

Leonardo da Vinci's fresco, The Battle of Anghiari (1505), has a fascinating history. After decades of search, recent evidence suggests it is under later frescoes in the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence. Charcoal studies and sketches survive, also engravings and a copy by Rubens give us an idea of what the fresco must have looked like.

Rembrandt van Rijn's only seascape, the Storm on the Sea of Galilee (1633), was stolen in 1990 and not yet retrieved.

Caspar David Friedrich's atmospheric Cloister Cemetery in the Snow (1818) disappeared in 1945.

Johannes Vermeer's The Concert (1664), which depicts a man and two women performing music, was stolen in 1990.

Pablo Picasso's Collotype entitled The Painter (1963) was lost in a plane crash in 1998.

Cover art is based on an engraving that depicts Leonardo da Vinci?s 16th century fresco, The Battle of Anghiari.
