Painted with acrylics on wood, this painting is a tribute to the song that, according to Rolling Stone magazine, ranks number 137 among the 500 greatest songs of all time. For me, it's a masterpiece enclosed in another masterpiece, the "Revolver" album. This song, in a mournful tone and with string arrangements, tells the story of Eleanor Rigby, a woman who collects the grains of rice after weddings and who lives the lives of others, watching them from her window.
This great theme also introduces another fascinating character, Father "McKenzie", who writes sermons that no one will listen to. Although Paul McCartney denied it, in the 80's someone discovered in Saint Peter's cemetery (where Paul and John were several times, since it is located in their native Liverpool), a family tombstone where a certain Eleanor Rigby lies.
