    In , he joined the Society of Dublin Painters and exhibited with them the following year. He won a Taylor Art Prize at the RDS in and in , he exhibited at the New York World’s Fair. Today is the 70th anniversary of the birth of Father George William Rutler, a priest of the Archdiocese of New York and the pastor of Hell’s Kitchen (how he must love that title). In addition.

    In his slim new book The Philosopher, The Priest, and The Painter, Steven Nadler does not specifically set out to rescue Descartes from ridicule. But by situating him firmly in his time and place.   To compare Nadler’s book itself to a painting, this is a triptych: Descartes is flanked by the painter Hals and the priest Abraham Bloemaert. The unknown priest from Haarlem is the connection between the philosopher and the painter.
