Back in DC

I saw something exquisite today that took my breath away....

The Veiled Nun
c. 1860, marble
National Art Gallery, DC

The Veiled Nun



Madonna and Sleeping Child
marble, c. 1500/1510
North Italian (Possible Veronese), National Art Gallery, DC

And then, I saw something that cracked me up...


Madonna and Child
oil on panel, c.1496/1499
Albrecht Durer
German (1471-1528)



Fragment Madonna and Child

Pay attention to fingers position. Yep, I am easily amused.

sadly no - or I would have hunted you down for a catch up get-together. Send me your skype address again on email and we'll get a time that works in both time zones and schedules!
