"The ethereal payoff is indeed redolent of a mix of Masters – the vivid hues of Titian, the straining bodies of Rubens, the sun-dappling chiaroscuro of Caravaggio, but also the loose brushstrokes and fluid movement of Delacroix; hints, too, of the Tiepolo-esque heavenly ascents adorning many an 18th-century Venetian chapel." - The Independent
(Ethereal means delicate and light ina way that seems not of this world. Redolent means that it reminds you of something. Chiaroscuro in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark. Tiepolo is the surname of a famous Italian painter)
