David Teniers, 1651, depicts the private collection of the archduke Leopold Wilhelm.
This is a great difference from the few functions of art in middle age of the post below. Art has started to talk about itself.

So very interesting and true! What a fasinating collection. I would never see these types of things or really take the time to reflect if it wasn't for this blog. For that I thank you.XXXXX

Just Be Real,
I don't know why but dogs are often show in pictures like this.

Interesting that dogs are in pictuers. Maybe because they are known to be "mans best friend?"
