|Subject: Art - my favourites|
Diana's post about the Vatican reminded me of some of the great art works I have seen and enjoyed in my travels.
A few are:
"The Adoration of the Lamb of God" by Jan and Hubert Van Eyk in St. Bavon Church in Ghent, Belgium.
The painting of Auvers-sur-Oise church by Van Gogh and Manet's Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe in the Musee d'Orsay, Paris. I was one of the first in and had Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe all to myself for a while!
The amazingly eclectic house of Sir John Soane in Holborn, London - the whole thing!
The Etruscan museum at Volterra, Italy, especially the statue "Shadow of the Night".
This one is cheating a little! In Bruges, an amazing special exhibition of Jan van Eyck's works tracing the influence of Eyck and Netherlandish artists in Europe.
