Art, travels

Art at the Louvre

Besides the Vinci masterpieces (which, to be honest, left me a little too overwhelmed to concentrate on other artists), there is a HUGE collection of artwork that would take days to view and truly appreciate. I did not have that luxury, but I am thankful that I got the chance that I did get. 🙂

Man with a glove – Titian. The glass provides for less-than-ideal photography but the genius of the man still shines through.
Pair of hunting dogs – Bassano. Every muscular ripple is so accurately portrayed, I almost felt they could jump out of the canvas at any moment.
Christ and Mary Magdalene – Lorenzo Lotto.
Salome receiving John the Baptist’s head – Luini. She looks so pleased, barely able to hide her glee at her success in getting John executed.

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
