Bodegones

6 August 2009

I had a nice visit to the National Gallery today with a brief sidetrip to the National Portrait Gallery.  This painting, along with its companion pomegranate piece, was one of my favorites from the Luis Melendez exhibition.

The Art of Power: Royal Armor and Portraits from Imperial Spain was also very well done, but I think I’m predisposed to like any exhibit featuring armor.  It’s the repressed warrior in me.
