Beautiful Things

This is what I was originally looking for: a small selection of images from Berlin's Sculpture Museum. There are many more, but it's late and I'm tired. Feast your eyes on these for now.

Nach Jean-Antoine Houdon, Versailles 1741-1828 Paris. The Given Kiss, The Received Kiss. Bronze.

Adrian de Fries, Den Haag 1556-1626 Prague. The Rape of Sabine 1621, Prague.

Mino de Fiesole, Poppi 1429-1484 Florence. Portrait of Niccolo Strozzi 1454 (reproduction, the original is on loan to the National Gallery London)

PS Should I make these images higher resolution? I've been saving them at 400x300 because it's convenient: the originals are 4000x3000. How much detail do yall want in yer photos?
