El Greco, Portrait of a Cardinal, Probably Cardinal Don Fernando Niño de Guevara (ca. 1600). Oil on canvas, 170.8 x 108 cm. Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
So its Friday night and I am finally back in San Francisco after a rather long and arduous day of traveling, but I am writing now to apologize for my lack of posting in the latter half of this week. I was once again in New York staying with a friend, this time for job interviews, and once again the wireless at the apartment where I stay was down. As I ran around the city going to interview (nerve-wracking!) and apartment hunting (terrifying!) I just did not have the energy to lug my computer around to coffee shops to post. I will make it up to you in the coming week though! 5 full-blown, single artwork posts are on the way. Ranging from Ancient to Renaissance to Modern to Contemporary, I really hope everyone finds something they like!
I am also running low on the list that readers gave me a few weeks ago when I issued an open call for suggestions so if you have any... please let me know! I live only to please you :)
All my best,
Including image of one of favorite works of art I saw in New York. I can't seem to stay away from the Old Masters in the Metropolitan... and who can blame me? Have glasses ever looked so dashing on anyone? Especially a Cardinal? I think not.
