Pictures at an Exhibition

The painting nun

I have been going through vast masses of unsorted old photographs and unearthing a few old favourites. I’m not sure now whether the nun above was at the Metropolitan Museum or the National Gallery – some art historian could possibly determine this by reference to the painting she is copying.

The picture below was taken at the Louvre. I love the speaker’s body language. Could it have been anywhere but France?

Louvre, 1981
