This photo has some of the same enigmatic qualities as the Mona Lisa. The background is also vaguely reminiscent of that portrait, as well.
We saw the following exhibitions:
- Desiderio da Settignano. Renaissance sculptor. Amazingly beautiful statues!
- Joseph Mallord William Turner. This exhibition will be at the Met in summer 2008, so we'll get to see it twice. Amazing collection of a ton of paintings; I wish I could have taken some photos. I wish I knew how Turner made his oil paintings shimmer like watercolors.
- Edward Hopper. This was a pretty large collection of Hopper's paintings, including the famous Nighthawks.
