From today's New York Times:

From the Washington Post
:

"Al Held, an American artist who painted large-scale abstract works… was found dead July 27, floating in a swimming pool at his villa…. The cause of death was not reported, but Italian police said he died of natural causes. He was 76."

From the Associated Press
,
filed at 4:34 PM ET July 27, 2005:

"Held once described his work this way: 'Historically, the priests and wise men believed that it was the artist's job to make images of heaven and hell believable, even though nobody had experienced these places.'

'Today,' he went on, 'scientists talk about vast worlds and universes that the senses cannot experience. The purpose of the nonobjective artist is to create these images.'"

Another view:

"Most modern men do not believe in hell because they have not been there."
— Review of Malcolm Lowry's novel Under the Volcano (1947)

the serpent's eyes shine
as he wraps around the vine
in the Garden of Allah."
