April 24, 2016: Post day 11, Look Here!

April hi,

isn’t this painting fascinating? You think these eyes are capable of reading your thoughts. It’s Odilon Redon, the French symbolist painter who is at the cover of this cute little book at the British Museum.

Yes, I have become an absolute fan of the B.M., and decided to buy it for my god-son, since there are no words, just beautiful pictures of works of art, both sculptures and paintings. Different periods in time and cultures are represented, in a very imaginative way.

So it’s ok that Alexandre, my godson doesn’t speak a word in English. He can still look. I just hope he won’t throw it against his younger brother because it is a bit heavy though.

What is more, this gave me ideas for an art exhibition 🙂
