I spend far too much time sifting through on-line art galleries and images. We have unprecedented access to these things as never before in history. I recommend, for your sanity, take a little time to use these resources and exit from the world of sensational news and other half-cocked garbage spewed out by the electronic ton.
The Dutch (or in this case Belgian-born) masters are not a bad place to start for some relatively recent history. Honestly, this is not a favorite of mine but I really love the interactive ladies. Okay, I’m really in it for the packbasket. These images, showing the way people actually lived, take me back in time.
