more from the rom

The best sculptures I have ever seen were relatively modern, Rodin's work in Musee d'Orsay. Nothing I have seen since comes close. In terms of older sculpture, however, this particular ROM gallery is a real treasure house! This work for instance, in my opinion, is even more amazing than Venus de Milo in the Louvre. The truth is I was not impressed when I saw Venus. Maybe tomorrow I will dig back in the archives and post the picture I took of Venus de Milo some time ago and then you can decide for yourself which work you prefer.
