It's Almost Christmas!

Fra Fillipo Lippi, Nativity.  c. 1469.

I like that artist's name. Sounds like a Star Wars guy.

Merry X-mas, buddy!

We do too. We like to say "I saw Far Fillipo Lippi at La Calaca Comelona," a Mexican restaurant down the way.

Happy Christmas Dr. Ken!

I love the European architecture in such paintings. It became most obvious for me that the artists painted what they knew when I was travelling in Germany and saw historical works in Auld Pincoteque (German spelling is not my forté) where the "Holy Land" architecture was identical to that which I had just been touring.
