    Aun no tengo la imaginación como para poder comprender al autor de pintar tanta perfección en el todo.
    He visitado muchos museos en Madrid , Ámsterdam, Roma, Londres y otros países, pero nunca he quedado tan deslumbrado de lo que veo en esta pagina, quizás sea porque tengo la posibilidad de verlo en mi casa tranquilo y no rodeado de personas desesperadas que se pasan por delante cuando se esta detenido por un momento tratando de ver “LO QUE ESTA COLGADO DE LA PARED”, por momentos no se disfrutar….Gracias por haberlos conocido.

    • Thank you. I hope I have properly understood your message. I have a similar experience. Visiting museums is necessary but sometimes dissappointing: closed or crowded rooms, barriers which make a close view impossible. Anyway, few people can visit so many museums and most of the paintings which are in private collections cannot be seen.
