32. I have seen your Fri PM Art Challenge postings ...

... but never really looked at them as I didn't think I'm even close to the level that you or the other art aficionados here have attained. I guess I'll have to start paying attention and see if a newbie can recognize anything.

My art interest only appeared about six years ago, a few years before I retired. I went to the museums in Munich on work trips, and went to Madrid for 3 days in May of 2008 when returning from a Med cruise. Did a tour of the Sistine Chapel and St. Peters. The Acropolis and Agora in Athens also in 2008. Those are the only major sites I've been to in Europe. Paris and Amsterdam are on my list, as is St. Petersburg.

In the US I have only been to the Nat'l Gallery in DC, Dallas MoA, and Chicago. I plan to spend at least 4 days in NYC. If you do American art, I was born near the Hudson River and within sight of Olana, the Frederick E. Church estate. I took a tour of it last year. That was why I went to the Dallas MoA to see his painting "Icebergs."

Thanks for all the info. Somehow I am sure this all ties back into the discussion as to why that lawyer was carrying a concealed handgun into the theatre. It must be a deep cultural thing!
