Well Hung (A Gallery/Museum Update) | Anglo Spainophiles

British appreciation and love of España are on display at the National Galleries of Scotland in the show "Spain: Goya to Picasso."  The exhibition explores the work of 19th and early 20th c. British artists like Sir David Wilkie, David Roberts, John Phillip and Arthur Melville who let Spain play a role as muse and collectors who used Spanish artists as a great excuse to spend money.  Up until Oct. 11.

That is one of my favorite paintings ever, I blogged about it a while back.
So great that someone else loves it as well.
