|OF COURSE somebody has to clean all these statues...|
|I asked the young lady if I could take her picture....|
|She uses delicate camel hair brushes to dust the statues and frames...it takes a very light touch...|
So, as I was thinking those random thoughts -- I turned and saw this painting...
Hey -- we live in Iowa. A picture of a cow's ass isn't all that surprising...But I must admit, it didn't strike me as a masterpiece....
|I mean -- who are we kidding -- if you've seen one cow butt -- you've seen them all -- right??|
|But, much to my surprise, this wasn't a painting by a local Iowa artist. THIS is a painting by Rosa Bonheur, one of the most important women artists of the 19th Century....she was FRENCH...I'm telling you....Emperor's New Clothes...|
I am so ignorant about so many things. Here's a Wikipedia link to : Rosa Bonheur,
