My normal pilgrimage to theHigh Museum of Art was also very satisfying. I took in a still life exhibition and a very interesting exhibition of art and artifacts from the Vienna Imperial Collection.
A funny little side note there are three paintings in this exhibition depicting Jupiter (or Zeus if you like) seducing women in different disguises. This made for an interesting museum experience as I looked at the painting of Jupiter and Danaē simultaneously with a group of young students on tour of the exhibit. As they studied the painting of the god appearing to seduce Danaē as a "shower of gold" snickers and suppressed laughter moved through the crowd. I imagined what Titian, who painted the beautiful canvas, would have thought. I imagined him being pleased.
