DaVinci and the Splendor of Poland


Carmen and I went to the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco today to get away from the war news coming out of Iraq and to get a chance to view a real DaVinci, his famous Woman with an Ermine, which is on loan from the Czartorski Museum in Krakow. There were also a number of very fine paintings, including some very nice views of Warsaw painted by Bernardo Bellotto which astounded both Carmen and I with their fine detail. It was a splendid display of Polish art, and well worth attending.
