In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Alexandra's Blogging Again -- or Still

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

Alexandra, of the blog Out of Lascaux, was one of the earliest of the art-history bloggers, perhaps even the first. She put up a lot of fully-felt, informative, and wonderfully clear cultureblogpostings. But by the time blogging really took off, Alexandra seemed to have grown tired of blogging. Until tonight I hadn't checked in with Out of Lascaux for a long time. But I just discovered that Alexandra is in fact back to to putting up first-rate postings with a lot of first-class reproductions. Here are two about Mary Magdalen as a subject in art. If you haven't visited Out of Lascaux yet, please do.

I said a while back that La Tour was one of my favorites. The Magdalen is one reason.

Why, thank you! The Magdalen was always one of my favorite subjects in Baroque art. I have been trying to get back to more art blogging, but with so many good art bloggers out there nowadays (and a lack of time on my part), it's hard to come up with original posts. I've just been leaving it to you guys, since you do such a good job.
