Masterworks in situ

I would go for...

1. Lam Gods (Van Eyck, St.Baafs, Ghent)

2. Descent from the Cross (Rubens, Cathedral Antwerp)
...although, to be honest, the latter originally hung in another church, which...

Note on spelling: Huygens includes the old style "uy", which in modern Dutch becomes "ui". It's one of the double vowel sounds which are typical for Dutch. (cfr. the "eu" in Breughel.)

To jean113: pronunciation

Not sure if I completely agree with that remark, Jean. Of course the works are what matter most, but on the other hand I do feel it's a matter of respect to at least try to pronounce someone's name...

Yes, the occasion is the 450th anniversary of his death. But it 's just an alibi, really...
The biggest exhibition of Brueghel was in Vienna. Unfortunately, we didn't get there.

To jhm: lang

Hopelijk kan je toch zo lang mogelijk hier blijven, John. Ook in je eigen streek kan je ongetwijfeld mooie foto's nemen, en via TE kan je ook via foto's van anderen meereizen. Hou je goed, he!

yes!

"The Sorrow of War" is one of the masterpieces of world literature, if you ask me. Not always an easy read, as the writer also plays on ancient Vietnamese legends and myths.

Bao Ninh is still...

Smile To emka: more Bruegel

1. SINT-ANNA-PEDE CHURCH
Well, I did some shots of the Sint-Anna-Pede church, but didn't really find any of them good enough to be posted here. You can see a picture of the church by clicking on the...

Smile To alvaraalto: meepraten

Inderaad & helaas.

Maar belangrijker: die "Feast of Fools" is echt wel een aanrader voor je, Rob. Je kan dat mooi combineren met "De Blik van Bruegel", een mooie kunstwandeling vlakbij. Twee...

Smile To emka: what's worse?

Interesting comment. Makes me think what is worse:
- me forgetting my camera when visiting Trier or
- you managing to see only one side of the Porta Negra?

Well, nobody's perfect. ;)

Thanks for your bold reaction here, Craig, for having the balls to react like this!
I am kind of proud of the level of ugliness I reached here.
It's all done accidentally on purpose.

1. About the theatre photo: I'm not sure which pic you might mean. I went looking, but didn't really find anything similar. It's classic Art Deco, so it does look kind of familiar.

2. About being...

Bedankt voor je reactie, Lars. In Europa zijn ook wij kerkbezoekers, maar dan voor de kunst, de architectuur en de geschiedenis. In Amerika moet je daarvoor niet in de kerken zijn. Ik geloof niet dat...

As a keen photographer of people, I believe less and less in that distinction. ;-)

Post To worldcitizen: modern San Gennaro

You are right. This street artist uses contemporary models (usually friends of his) to stand in as models for historical figures. That's what I like about his work.

Thanks for your reaction and even more thanks for the WS, Gert. I see your point. It's not the first time other photographers point this out. I seem to want it darker than most.
