“Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before–more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle.”― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations (Source: Goodreads)
Stuff I found.
- If you weren’t already afraid of heights (and I’ll hereby Iet you know I am and I was), maybe you’ll become it now.
- The point is, Vermeer did not himself paint over the painting in the painting (they knew because there was a thin layer of dust between the paint layers), so in my book it is, in fact, a restoration.
- On the other hand, it can be interesting to know what hides in the layers underneath, even though you didn’t actually scrape off the paint on top of it.
