Twenty of My Best Art and Image Posts

Part II of my favorites collection, posts that consist mainly of images. There is an arbitrary element here, since I decided to include only one cathedral, one Romanesque church, and so on. I wanted this post to give a sense of the range of things I like and have featured. Once it is ensconced on the right-hand margin in the favorites box I will probably rotate the posts.

Van Gogh: The Drawings, March 27, 2015. I often love drawings more than finished paintings, and I am especially fond of Van Gogh's.

Fantastic Images from the Dark Side, March 15, 2015.

Masks, February 26, 2015

Vincent Munier, December 29, 2014. Amazing wildlife photographer.

August Rodin, September 30, 2014

Lajvardina, August 16, 2014. Lovely ceramics from medieval Persia

The Nearly Forgotten Realm of Sangxingdui, August 6, 2014. Strange archaeology from China.

Strasbourg Cathedral, February 17, 2014. I had to choose one cathedral of the many I have posted; today for no particular reason I chose this one.
