Picturing Mary

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

On February 1st, I went with my family to the National Museum of Women in the Arts to view the amazing exhibition, “Picturing Mary: Woman, Mother, Idea.” It is a treasure trove of work from Renaissance and Baroque artists. Go and observe the Michelangelo drawings, and the breathtaking Botticelli and Lippi paintings, among a host of other artworks and well placed sculptural pieces. The sheer beauty of the exhibit will infuse you with a new determination to be diligent with your own art form and will give you a greater admiration for what has gone before us: vision and hard work.
