    Merowig got a reaction from The Old Man in Any Art Fans Out There?   
    Hi
    first thank you for identifying the pictures here
    https://millennium-thisiswhoweare.net/guide/episodes/articles/211/23/anticipating-a-change-examining-peter-watts-collection-of-artwork/
     
    There is a second page from the Book of Hours hanging over the fire which is obscured by a vase. I am pretty sure that that page hanging there is April https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Les_Très_Riches_Heures_du_duc_de_Berry_avril.jpg
    As you can see the building vaguely on the right and in one shot vaguely the man in the blue garment.
    The choice of April could be interpreted in a way as there are theories out there that Jesus was born in April and Peter is stating that the day Jesus was born is unknown.
    From the Article:
    Then Peter stands in front of the fireplace for a while, and he probably gazes at Nativity when he says "Imagine that: Christ wasn't even born on this day, maybe not even 1,997 years ago. So no one knows for sure when the millennium really begins and ends. Or how much time is left."
    A possibility is that Peter is gazing on both pictures - the Nativity painting  and on the April Calendar painting.
     

    Was anyone able to identify so far the yellow (wheat?) field painting:
     
    And the painting when Frank is entering Peter's study room?
     
    Thanks

    Thanks - Millennium was one of my favorite series during my time as a teenager. 
    I tried to search the picture via TinEye as well but  no result showed up - possibly as well because of the quality and the angle in the end.
    Many paintings are without a copyright - so I am not sure of its origin.
    Tried as well to find below picture at the entry of Peters study room - but also with no results.

    Thank you for Jack O' Lantern/Battery/790 Days" !!!

    There is an image of an inverted cross in 19:19 as well when Matthew Prine falls on the stairs after the fight with Frank. It is likely used to cast doubt (as in Anamesis I suspect) over the true alignment of the week's subject - good or evil.

    This plays an important role in practically all S2 episodes:
    B+TE - Is the Poloroid Stalker evil? He knew the Group were evil and there is a strong case for saying he never intended to kill Frank or Catherine but wanted to die after telling Frank to beware the Group.

    Beware of the Dog: Is the Old Man evil? He seems in league with the vicious hounds but then is revealed as something else.

    S+AS: Patient Zero is a pitiful case, a man who like other transients has been experimented on and abused... until we discover he is really the villain of the piece, perpetrating these terrible acts.

    Monster: Danielle Barbakow, an innocent young girl... who happens to be a demon in disguise.



    I could on but I won't. You get the idea. Present me with pretty much any S2 episode and I'll show you villains who become heroes and heroes who become villains.

    Snow Files of the Week: "Jack O' Lantern/Battery/790 Days" from "MillenniuM", episode "The Curse of Frank Black" (1997).
    What would Halloween be without "The Curse of Frank Black"? A very popular episode amongst fans of "MillenniuM", it features everything you could hope for on this night: Strange happenings, Demons, black cats, witches, ghosts and an overall dark and tense atmosphere. Mark brings the moody episode to a higher level with his dark and spooky music. At the end of the episode, Mark even incorporates a piece of classical music into his score, the "Sarabande" by Georg Friedrich Händel.
    The music was released on the first volume of "MillenniuM" music by La-La Land Records in 2008. This edition sold out and was re-released, limited to 1.000 copies.
    Happy Halloween!

    Fourth, just how huge is your tv screen exactly? I mean, how could anyone see clearly enough what's in that triptych? Anyway, I thought your question was really interesting, and when I did some browsing on the net I found this excellent site called Web Gallery of Art, http://www.wga.hu

    Searching there I found a possible answer to your question but I'm not at all sure that this is the right one. The painting could be the Merode Altarpiece by Master of Flemalle, painted in 1427. The original is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

    Now, an answer to the question you specifically did not ask; the paintings over the fireplace. The nativity scene there seems to be painted by Lorenzo Lotto in 1523, and the original one is in your National Gallery of Art, Washington.

    The smaller ones above the fireplace could be two illuminations of a book called Les tres riches heures du Duc de Berry by the Limbourg Brothers.

    There's a great search engine on that site I mentioned, so see for yourself and tell me what you think.

    Call me obsessed, but I love focusing on the details of the set every now and then. IMO, it's harmless fun!

    Love,
