Venetian Art Exhbit in Boston: Titian, Tintoretto & Veronese

Donna Laski brought me this article from Newsweek, The Merchants of Venice Art, by Peter Plagens, (March 23, 2009). It tells about this wonderful exhibit of 56 old masters: "Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice" at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts through mid August. Check it out: http://www.mfa.org/venice/. This looks spectacular! Thanks DL.

New Churchill Biography

Melinda Starnes tells me that there is a new biography out on Churchill that is good. Here is the info:

Carlo D'Este. Warlord: A Life of Winston Churchill at War, 1874-1945.

Personally, I like D'Este's biographies, I am putting this on my "to read list." If you've read it, and one to give a short review of it, please feel free to post.
