Sometimes I like to just wander past the art at the AGO and let it talk to me, sometimes call me to stop, other times just wave me by. A very quiet conversation with the walls. But one stop I feel I must always make is to see the small study of knees by Michelangelo in a room shared by Ruben’s studies from his Rome visit as a student. I know it is not a major work but there is something that speaks quietly from those lines. I love to listen to them.
In the rooms prior to the Michelangelo and Rubens are the magnificent carvings in ivory and wood. I love to pause there and wonder at the knowledge and control of those craftsmen.

The idea of Wunderkammer has always intrigued me. Here is mine if only for an interim.
