Well, I've shown you so many beautiful things from our Paris adventure, I thought I would add a few of the more macabre, darker images I noticed while in the City of Light. This more sinister side does not always mean there is less beauty here. Often, this means just the opposite. The artists rendered many powerful and bizarre images in quite beautiful ways.
This first batch if from Versailles, the apex of Beauty in that city. Yet in all this beauty, there is often an odd little detail that makes you sort of wonder what was going on.
I could be wrong.
Is there anything touching about this father? I'm thinking this child needs to be placed in Protective Services, sooner rather than later!
Anyone have any better ideas?
I really like the shades on either side of the lower painting. They've got to be ghosts. I'm gonna be disappointed if the chief curator of Versailles comes on this blog and leaves a snarky comment that they are not ghosts but simply faded images that have not yet been restored to their original color.
The prisoner's expression is priceless.
