Are you ready for some artwork?! Today I have more photos from The Louvre -- starting with a pastel exhibit that I really enjoyed, moving through some religious art, checking out the Mona Lisa madness, and then portraits, pottery, more portraits, some Impressionist work, and a framing exhibit. I love framing. It's fascinating!
Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
So how many monkeys did you see? There are a surprising number of them in paintings. I became so curious about monkeys as pets after this visit, that I did a little googling. I thought this article was interesting. I hope you find it interesting too.
I think we often look at art as an aesthetic experience, but in many ways it's an historical document. I don't always gravitate towards some of these styles of art from an aesthetic point-of-view but I love them as a window into a time long gone. Paintings tell stories. I'm eager to listen.
Thanks for stopping by!
