The Goldfinch, a Painting

by carel fabritius has made its second comeback due to a novel , The Goldfinch by Donna-Tartt/

The first comeback was the restoration of this sublime painting.

The artist, Carel Fabritius, died in an explosion with most of his work. [Of all Rembrandt's pupils, Fabritius was the only one to develop his own artistic style.]

seeing a close-up on TV made me want to see it.
i do have Goldfinches here at my very door...

more birds HERE and HERE
