The Rembrandt exhibition at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts is


Any of you readers near Boston before January 18, you really should go.

This morning myself, Judy, and missdimple T'ed to the MFA. Despite living several years in Boston, I never went to the MFA, a failing I now regret.

We spent many hours being overwhelmed with 5 large rooms of paintings, etchings, and scetches, focusing on his self portraits, biblical storytelling, portraits, nudes, and landscapes, visiting and revisiting each over the beginning, middle, and end of his career.

Judy had to leave for work, so missdimple and I decompressed in the cafe and the giftshop (and and fine giftshop it was, despite being not very accessable, what with MsDimple having to wheel around in a chair).

missdimple having to wheel around in a chair?!

You people treat me like a mushroom, I swear it.

OTOH, Rembrandt is Wicked Cool, I agree. Especially since they've removed the 1.2E7 layers of shellac from his better paintings, and they don't look so dark.

MissDimple's back is so nasty these days that she can't tolerate walking around a museum for hours on end. When I hurt my toe last year and had no choice but to acquire a wheelchair at the MOS, I realized that museuming doesn't have to be a body torture device. It is, however, a mind torture device since most people either treat you like you are two years old or they don't see you AT ALL!!! Everytime I have used one, someone has tripped over me. I mean, come on, BIG HUGE CHAIR HERE!
