Train of thought from the Cellar.
This one gets me.
La Negazione di Pietro, Caravaggio
I saw one in a gallery for sale at 10 000 pounds twenty odd years ago
It was a huge 12’ by 8’ canvas of two tiny figures on a beach at low tide with gulls wheeling around and landing on the wet sand
I would have sold my soul for that picture
It sold to a private buyer
Do etchings count? Miss Janie and I were blown away by the Rembrandt exhibition in Ottawa at the moment, more so than the paintings. The etchings are unbelievably tiny, much small than the picture I took. I can see more details in my photo than my eye was able to absorb at the time.
I think that everything/anything counts if it has an effect on you, Janie
Ta, Carinthia. Sorry it’s crooked. Not Rembrandt’s fault, nor our National Gallery’s.
Actually, I’m a sucker for aspiring church interiors, on the whole.
New to me, and wonderful. Thank you.
The quality of the light is fabulous, Fishy
