Restoration of Le Brun's Versailles Ceiling Paintings

I recently joined this online newspaper called Historical Fiction. Basically it's a community of history enthusiasts and writers who post stories and articles they have found. There are quite a few interesting reads and my pile of articles to be read is growing at a steady pace! Here's one about the restoration of the ceiling paintings at Versailles. I am jealous of restorers, I am pretty sure if I ever got that close to a painting I'd be bumrushed by a security guard! They get to touch these works and be part of their history. Imagine!

The MET's Christmas Tree

Happy Friday!
I know it's been a while. I came across this article about the MET's Christmas tree and I thought I would repost the article here. The photos are beautiful and the use of Baroque figurines is thrilling! Wish I could see it in person.

I love Hyperallergic! They always have insightful and fun articles about the art world, some of which I try to repost here.

Enjoy the article and I hope everyone has a restful and enjoyable holiday!!
