El Greco & Velasquez Budapest Fine Arts Museum

Oddly enough, the showcase at the Budapest Fine Arts museum, next to Heroes' Square, is the spanish art gallery . . . with 7 El Grecos and assorted other artists. So we belined there. I was speed walking past the ones I wasn't impressed with, and suddenly came up short . . . This large picture of the sorrowful woman caught my eye, and it was being reverenced by some guy sitting on a bench in front of it. Sure enough, this was, these were, the El Grecos... this in particular was Mary Magdalene . . . awesome . . . the Velasquez transfixed me too, the faces  . . .
