Diego Rivera, Creation, 1922-23, Mural at Esquella National Preparatoria, Mexico City
I've been having a great time browsing this site. Every time you enter the site, a new "featured painting" captures your eye. For me today, it was this Diego Rivera mural. They have good reproductions of a lot of paintings, including many which are intriguing and less well known. I encourage you to go there, click around, and leave a comment here on this blog telling me of a painting you felt drawn too.

Angelo Bronzino, Venus Cupid Folly and Time, 1540-45
Want to know more about this wacky painting? A professor named Dr. Christopher L.C.E. Witcombe has built an incredibly thorough resource out of what must have started as a class website (there are still links to syllabi occasionally scattered throughout), but has grown into something more. It is quite a treasure trove of links. Some day, I hope my blog houses as much information.

Be ready for a laugh! And be ready to wonder at the fact that this museum really truly exists, specializing in finding and curating all the awkward, odd and ugly works they can find, and curating them with silly tongue-in-cheek captions.
So enjoy, and let me know what you find!
