High Museum of Art

The Louvre and the Masterpiece is an exhibit that is being featured at the High Museum of Art in Atlana. The exhibit began in Oct. 2008 and features over ninety-one masterpieces. Included in this priceless display are sculptures, decorative arts, drawings and Paintings. One of the pieces that I find most intriguing is called Card Sharp with the Ace of Diamonds. This exquisite 17th century oil painting depicts a card game in progress in which one of players is pulling a hidden Ace of Diamonds from behind his back. It is hard to believe that card games were popular so long ago; I bet the players would have really enjoyed playing with plastic cards. Don’t miss out; take time to see these amazing works of art before Sept 13.
