Miss Gioia

Sunday, March 8, 2009


I spent a few hours at the Louvre yesterday. I didn't want to stay too long and overwhelm myself, so I only did parts of two wings - mostly the paintings and sculpture. In general, I prefer Dutch and German works to the more effusive Italian and French paintings. That said, this little French cherub was one of my favorites of the day.

I spent a long time trying to find a famous Vermeer which supposedly lurks in the museum's massive corridors. But I was sadly unsuccessful. I did, however, have a nice time in the Napoleonic apartments. So rococo. So fun.
