descent from the cross

20 Sep


So taken I was with this painting by van der Wyeden in the Prado Museum in Madrid, I excused myself from the group, which was heading on to the Royal Palace, and I stayed in the museum. (My friend Celia will be impressed and surprised that I was spending extra time in an art museum.) The 40-minute walk by myself back to the hotel was a walk well spent.

    Such it is with great art and God’s knowing what we need to see and when.

    The other one is El Greco, this one is van der Wyeden (in case you want to buy a print). But yes, an amazing one!!! What a trip you are having. Thanks so much for posting these beautiful pictures and reflections for us to see back in Cincinnati!
