    Always appreciate your posts. Blessings for the new year.

  2. So glad you’re back! What stillness and concentrated moments those two Renaissance paintings convey. And the color and patterning in the icon direct my eyes right to what’s going in the center. These images are very healing, good for the soul.

    So good to have you back, Maureen!

    Since Maureen won’t toot her own horn, it’s left to me. She has a very fine review in the Weekly Standard of what sounds like a very bad book, Alex Danchev’s Cezanne: A Life.


    British novelist Julian Barnes weighs in on the same in the TLS. He likes the book a bit more, but comes to the same conclusion as to the book’s overblow claims. Worth reading.


    Also, this lauditory review of a new Titian biography by Sheila Harper was a enough to get me to buy the book (but I haven’t received it yet, much less read it).
