Ernst Ludwig Kirchner - Artistin (Marzella)
I'm not a big fan of Expressionist painter Kirchner, but I really like this painting of his child model and muse Lina Franziska Fehrmann.  Here are more images of Lina.

Beatus Escorial
These colorful and fascinating Picassoesque images are from the 10th century Illuminated manuscript - Escorial Beatus, which is a commentary by Beatus of Libana on the Apocalypse.


Worship of the Animal and the Dragon (Apocalypse XIII)


The fifth Angel sounds trumpet (Apocalypse IX)

Codex Manesse
The beautiful 14th century illuminated manuscript the Codex Manesse was "the single most comprehensive source for the texts of love songs in Middle High German, representing 140 poets, several of whom were famous rulers. The term for these poets, Minnesnger, combines the words for "romantic love" and "singer", reflecting the content of the poetry, which adapted the Provenal troubadour tradition to German".  Below are two of my favorite images.
