Spring is finally here, again. I went to the Tokyo National Museum last Saturday to look at Leornado Da Vinci's The Annunciation. The digital image shown in the link does no justice at all to the real painting I saw with my own eyes. What a masterpiece, a genius work of art, the crème de la crème. Every single inch of the 98x 217cm painting tells you something about the moment and the spirit of the moment. Every single detail was painted to perfection. I should be there to see it once more before the exhibition ends. I wonder if modern artists today are able to paint something like that.
