"Corot and the Modern Art" Exhibition



I visited the "Corot and the Modern Art" yesterday at the Palazzo della Granguardia.

Oh my goodness. I've not been here in a while and look what I've missed! I've scrolled down and there are just too many wonderful photographs to even begin to speak about . I'll stick to the gorgeous stairs and the wonderful shots. I must bookmark this blog so I won't miss any more!
