This is one of my favorite paintings in the hallway. The colors are so vivid, it is almost like you are there among the people of Milan. This painting was on my list of “must haves” for a while. As anyone that has visited my blog knows…I love Italy, and all things Italian. I love the architecture of the church. This is sometimes called the birthday cake because of all the spires on the building. This is the third largest church in the world. The first stone for the building was laid down in 1386, but it was not completed until January 6th 1965 when the last gate was inaugurated.
When looking close at the painting one becomes immersed in the hustle and bustle that is going on in the painting. The clear blue sky. Imagine all that can be accomplished on a day like this. Flowers blooming in the pots, and flowers even hanging in pots. The corridors are defiantly a place to be free of the sun for a moment or catch up with some friends. The striped umbrella looks inviting, have an espresso with your favorite book or meeting a group of friends. In the evening there are beautiful lamp post that light the way to a destination either in your dreams or in Milan. This painting takes me there every time a view it.
