This week I had the most amazing trip to Sarasota, Florida. The initial purpose of this trip was to attend a workshop with Charles Reid, a famous watercolour master. It was very interesting, and I will write a separate post about this workshop sometime.

A very extensive collection representing the major European art movements from Renaissance until the 20th century, located in a spectacular palatial building with a beautiful park with magical banyan trees and classic sculptures, overlooking the sea.
some paintings by Marcel Duchamp, famous as the father of conceptual art. Here are some highlights of my visit ( these are mainly portraits as this is my favourite genre):
