I do the NGI in binges.

At the lunch time lecture three weeks ago, they spoke about The Peasant Wedding . The speaker siad that the painting used to be part of their school programme until they got it cleaned. Before it was cleaned, the painting had paint added later by somebody else. The later pain modified the couple kissing, thrid from the left. With the additional paint, yer man's hand had been on her leg. When they realised it was not part of the oroginal they removed the paint, to reveal that his hand was up her skirt. A

I was in the NGI today for the lunch time lecture on The Cottage Girl by Gainsborough.

Also a "now" thing: I love the exhibition of watercolours by Willam Evans of Eton.

Not a bad idea. We should look at the schedule of events and pick one to go to.

Good pics Borstal. For me, I'm always in awe of the sheer size of the marriage of Strongbow and Aoife painting. Away for restoration

I've exhibited in that show twice. As for favourite paintings, I love the work of Ronnie Hughes.

The opening of the Sixth Seal

I love that, I've never seen it before. Exactly the type of thing I love on my wall.

I'm not at all religious but I've always loved the idea of this christ being depicted as above the world.
You can never go wrong with a bit of Kandinsky imo. Brightens the day

Sir Francis Danby's The Opening of the Sixth Seal
I always thought that was in Amsterdam for some reason, but i see it is in Ireland. I must have visited it close to the time i went to Holland once, because i have gone back to look for it at least a couple of times i have gone back there for a long weekend.
Good to know i can visit is here.
