  2. Marina – I love your birthday celebration posts. I did a little research behind “Christ among the Doctors and found out the Durer painted this in 5 days (Opus Quinquennial Dierum) while he was working at the Feast of the Rosary Altarpiece! Can you imagine 5 days. Unbelievable. Thank you for your wonderful posts – always a joy to stop by. Hugs and more hugs.

    • Thank you, my dearest Rebecca and thank you for sharing that information. Amazingly unbelievable!!!
      More hugs back and love. Have a beautiful Sunday! ☀️🤗

  3. I love Albrecht Dürer. I think his self portrait is the male Mona Lisa: An ex-employee who come to visit from time to time found a portfolio of prints from wood cuts by Albrecht Dürer at a garage sale and got it cheap. The people didn’t know what it prints were or their value. That was an impressive find.
