Happiness as Anarchy #364: Art museums

I do love wandering around art museums and soaking up centuries of artistic endeavour. While Covid19 has made this impossible for the time being, the wonderful result is the many virtual tours of the world’s biggest galleries. I just popped into the Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid and wandered around its pink hallways and rooms looking at religious icons, 17th century portraits, avant-garde paintings and post-impressionist works. Then I realised that the Garden of Earthly Delights, Bosch’s masterpiece, is in the Prado, so ducked over there to have a look. I think I’ll have a coffee with Heironymus in the morning before I start work – a little inspiration to get me through the rather grey tasks on my list.
