Hopkinson Smith's

recording of Pierre Attaingnant: Preludes, Chasons and Dances is music that will enrich and rejuvenate you.

Anthony Bailey

There's a marvelous book by Anthony Bailey titled Vermeer. A View of Delft. It's an oustanding window into the life and times of this masterful Dutch artist.

Jonathan Harr . . .

I know I've scaled back postings - I've been terribly busy between leading students to Italy and getting geared up for this semester. Last week, however, life stopped as I read a fabulous book by Jonathan Harr entitled "The Lost Painting", a true life mystery about the discovery and restoration of Michelangelo Merisi di Carravaggio's painting "The Taking of Christ". Don't look for too many postings any time soon - too busy these days!
