The Unknown History of an Antique

...is a alluring. I've always loved old things and old places and that magical je ne sais quoi moment when you first make eye contact with it. After the 'wow' moment and the 'is it worth something' hype fades into the 'I wonder who else it belonged to' and you find yourself just smiling...you know you're in love. And now for the fun part: Research. Ughh. Yep, good old sweet computer time. And that is how I found out this painting once was exhibited at the Louvre in 1930. Cool.
