The Dead Artists Gallery presents “Tabula Rasa”

Tabula Rasa

Oil on Canvas, “Tabula Rasa”

Charming Unsigned Nineteenth Century Italian Philosophical representation of the First of the Four Stages of Man’s Life:”The Blank Slate”. At the Beginning, Man has a choice to decide what will be written in the Book of His Works.

Tabula rasa is a Latin phrase often translated as “blank slate” in English and originates from the Roman “tabula” used for notes, which was blanked by heating the wax and then smoothing it. This roughly equates to the English term “blank slate” (or, more literally, “erased slate”) which refers to the emptiness of a slate sheet previous to it being written on with chalk. Both may be refreshed repeatedly, by melting the wax or by erasing the chalk.
