"A Few Old Master Paintings"
8:49am

Having finished Renoir's Painting Gallery and Mary Cassatt's Painting Gallery, I went poking around in old photo archives to see what I'd forgotten about. There's so many photos of lovely pieces from various ages. But I began to focus on old master's works, while listening to Handel's Messiah Oratorio on the radio. Handel would likely have seen works by these artists.
