Seasons Greetings 2017

Season's Greetings 
to all those who follow 'Making A Mark'
on my blog and/or on Facebook.

Your 'likes', 'follows' and comments are always very much valued wherever you leave them

Wishing you and yours a happy day today and all the very best for the New Year.

Adoration of the Kings (1598) by Jan Brueghel the Elder (1568-1625)
National Gallery, London
This is one of those paintings which is yet another perspective on a very old story and comes complete with wonderful draughtsmanship and painting and a wealth of detail.

PS You can see the original photo on my Facebook Page with a couple of other great paintings of winter.

Thank you to the National Gallery and all other galleries which allow us to photograph paintings.


I'm now having a little break and will be back in the New Year.

This painting is a triumph in composition. I'll have to come back and study it further when I have more time. Merry Christmas, Katherine! You are a marvel with all your fact finding, interesting topics...the list goes one. And I know that I can read your blog and trust everything I read. Kudos!
