the Morrison Triptych.....

a shame that this artwork didn`t become the cover of An American Prayer.....they definetly should re-release it with this artwork and without the music....to honor Jim`s wish :cheers:
I think it would have been a very popular release....
What`s your thoughts?

The triptych has a feel of Ieronimo Bosch, whome Jim was fond of.
I'm not sure whether it should be used as a cover of AP though,
since Jim never finally agreed on the use of the Artwork.

it's the closest known about his wishes.
It's got to be doubtful he wanted the young photo on the back. Is there any likelyhood that the Bronson Cave photo or his own line drawings were intended for a poetry album?

from the letter to the artist, it sounds like jim had clear notion of what his painting should be. bosch's painting, represents creation in the first panel, the center panel is depicting a society engaged in excesses, the right panel is dark and is likened to hell, and represents the torments of damnation.
if you think about it, what jim described to the painter was kind of his own evolution. creation (moonlight drive), the excesses of success and then the demons that haunted him. just my thoughts on the matter...
i remember seeing the garden of earthly delights for the first time in my art history class. i was amazed that a painting done c. 1500 was so out there.
thanks again for bringing this up.
