The view through the oculus is a detail from Francesco d'Antonio's Christ Healing a Lunatic and Judas Receiving Thirty Pieces of Silver (c.1425) in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The title comes from a letter Jane Austen wrote to her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh ('What should I do with your strong, manly, spirited Sketches, full of variety and Glow?').
