Renaissance Art

Renaissance Moment at Norton Simon

Last week I visited the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena to look at the Renaissance art in their permanent collection. It’s nice to know that you don’t have to fly all the way to Florence, Italy to see work that was painted by Renaissance masters. They have a lovely collection and these are just a few of my favorites.
