The British Museum Ė Art in UK
The British Museum can boast to having legendary artifacts housed in an architecturally unique building. Iíll discuss some of the highlights of the collection and my favorites.

The Circus Theme in Art - Toulouse Lautrec
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec showed signs of having mental disorders in 1899 possibly due to alcoholism. Sent to a nursing home in Neuilly, he made drawings of entertainers of the circus, instead of the bars and brothels. Iíll discuss his famous posters as well as his fascinating circus drawings.

The Female Body in Art
I discuss artists who have taken a more classical approach to the female body. Namely, Giorgione, Titian, Ingres, and Manet.

The Guennol Lioness Statue Has Record Sale
A 5000 year old Mesopotamian stone lioness measuring a mere 3 1/4 inches high brings record sales for any type of sculpture.

The Isms or Movements in the History of Art
In relation to art, Mannerism in the 16th century led to later Isms of the 19th and 20th centuries. I will also discuss the art history timeline.

The Kiss in Art Ė Whatís in a Name ?
'The Kiss' has been a popular subject in art since the Romanticism of the late 1800s. It may just be a sign of affection in art or 'the kiss' may take on a different meaning and title. Iíll discuss the controversy surrounding this social gesture.

The Louvre Ė Paris Museum
The Louvre is what most museums aspire to be: the best of the best. Iíll share my joys and discoveries.

The Mona Lisa
The 'Mona Lisa' by Leonardo da Vinci is an enigmatic painting raising questions as to the identity of the sitter, why Napoleonís obsession and inspiring a song and movie in modern times. What really lies behind that mysterious Mona Lisa smile?

The Mystery of Da Vinci's Last Supper
Dan Brownís "Da Vinci Code" brought to light the idea that Mary Magdalene might be Jesusí wife, by His right side at the Last Supper. If so, where is the apostle John? Some possible answers revealed.

The Real Meaning in the 'Creation of Adam'
In my interpretation of Michelangeloís fresco on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, what did Godís finger bring to Adam? Was it life or intelligence? Iíll introduce a third theory.
