“I did’t find these prints by reading Art Historical literature, they were barely studied and hardly written about. I found them because I ran through whole collections looking for artworks with depictions of black people. People have choices in the things they see, and therefore the history of art will always be rewritten.”

Esther Schruder, Art Historian, on researching works for the Black Is Beautiful:Rubens to Dumas exhibition

It’s very telling to me that a majority of the art I’ve posted here has been the same method-searching through piles and piles of barely-cataloged stuff until I find something to share.

I wanna talk for a minute about some delicious symbolism via red warning lights. As I discussed a bit with this anon after 9x21, the red warning light was used symbolically in this scene from King of the Damned to indicate how concerned Sam was about Dean at the time. He was seeing the signs of Dean changing, but didn’t quite know what to do about it. Now, in 10x03, Dean is completely bathed in the light. He has become his, and his brother’s, worst nightmare. We also saw shadows used frequently throughout the second half of season 9 to indicate the coming changes, and now Dean is not only being bathed completely in this red light, we have the shot of his body completely in shadow as well. Gone to the dark side, I’m so looking forward to watching him emerge from the shadows once this is all said and done.

There was also in The Purge when Sam and Dean headed down into the darkened basement. When they separated Dean was headed towards red light then too…

He indeed was! (this particular screenshot via hotn because I’m lazy)

But the best part of this is Dean wasn’t walking toward just any old red light…it was a red exit sign, and each door he tried on his way down the hall wouldn’t open. Every door was locked for him until he got to Alonso’s private room near the exit sign, which might as well have been a walk through the interior of Dean’s psyche at the time…

Was trying to get a handle on how I see fem!Cas being. I really spend way too much time on female Deanna/Castiel action…
 Oh, and PS I’m alive!

can we talk about demon dean’s voice and how fucking hot it is because he’s a demon now and there’s no weight on his shoulders and you can’t hear the gravel from forty years in hell and a decade of suffering on earth so the only thing you can hear behind his words is freedom

"Cas still obviously cares about Dean very much, because he’s basically…his primary mission is to get Dean cured of being a demon, or fixing him. But at the same time, Cas is determined not to let a demon Dean roam the Earth. So if it comes to it, Cas is willing to kill demon Dean if human Dean can’t be rescued."
