Painting by Kerouac & Angeli Surfaces in Italy

Yesterday’s NYTimes included an article by Elisabetta Povoletto about a painting made by Jack Kerouac and Italian artist Franco Angeli in 1966 when Kerouac was visiting Italy. Titled “The Deposition,” the subject of the artwork is the removal of Jesus from the cross upon which he was crucified. Kerouac was an active painter who often created religious images. The painting will be exhibited at the Museum of the Imperial Forums in Rome, along with photographs by Angeli. Read the full article here, and get the NYT if you want more.
