His work in painting, sculpture and engraving can be labeled as postmodern figuration, framed in the reaction that opposed, in the 60s and 70s, to the abstract and informalist way then predominant. Nagel approaches mostly social themes with sarcasm and irreverence, in a style that at times resembles Madrid’s New Figuration and that adopts influences from pop art (colourful and urban themes), surrealism (shocking and humorous approaches) and arte povera (use of humble materials and waste).

In Greek mythology, Selene (in ancient Greek, Σελήνη Selếnê) was an ancient moon goddess daughter of the titans Hyperion and Tea. Its equivalent in Roman mythology was the goddess Moon.
The moon goddess is invariably a leading role. If its name is Greek, it is connected with selas, “light”. Selene ended up being largely supplanted by Artemis, so that later writers described her as a daughter of Zeus or Palas. In the Homeric hymn to Hermes, with her characteristically insistent patrilinearity, she is the “brilliant Selene, daughter of Palas, son of Megamedes”.
In traditional divine genealogy, Helios, the sun, is his brother: after he finishes his journey through the sky, Selene begins his journey when night falls on earth. His sister Eos is the goddess of dawn, who also had a human lover, Cephalus. Source: Wikipedia.
