Night of the Iguana is a famed Movie and Tennessee Williams play where a group of people travel to Mexico. Backstage is where Richard Burton met ElizabethTaylor though in this film Ava Gardner starred. It won awards though the characterization is distant typical of that era's films and stories early 60's focusing on abandonment disillusion and aimlessness the angst and boredom were parts of the Beat Generation this group of people reflect the conservatism of Hoover's USA and what in fact was hidden underneath a veneer of respectability during a time where an unseen FBI and Conservative media focused on the Cold War creating a nervous paranoia amongst people with the government investigating artists resulting in self harmful behavior patterns and a randomness in the arts aimlessness in the beat generation.

Santa Margarita is known as a shepherdess and is another patron saint of farm animals. She survived being swallowed by a dragon aaarrgh
Plate 1: Artist Zurbarán painted a fantastic picture of Santa Margarita even though Spanish she is depicted pale they painted in dark studios and that was a fashion plus the pigment used was lead. The woman addresses the viewer with a questioning gaze looking to make a family judging by her accessories. Zurbaran painted a swathe of maidens at his puebla Seville presenting them as saints which he must have found hugely enjoyable and celebrates their independence and strength. A depth passion and stillness to his works with a faint touch of humor. He paints an awesome still life. You are able to see the dragon bottom left hand corner well not here.
