  1. As intricate as the peacock painting is, it’s hard for me to think people killed and ate them.

    Once agin paintings provide a snapshot in history.

  2. REMBRANDT is the Best! (Well, one of the best at least.) The Rembrandt work that I have seen in person, is Titled: Portrait of an Old Man , 1632. It is an amazing work, and located at one of my favorite art museums, the Fogg Art Museum, on the Harvard University Campus.
