Speaking of 3-D: After reading this article in the Huffington Post last week about the 74th anniversary of the battle that inspired Picasso's dramatic anti-war statement, Guernica, I stumbled on the following video, "A 3D Exploration of Picasso's Guernica." Unlike Herzog's film, you don't need special glasses to view this one.
Inspired by the royal wedding last week, I went to the Art Authority app (click here to read my review) on my iPad and typed in "wedding." The results led me to The Wedding Dance by Flemish painter Pieter Brueghel the Elder, painted in 1567. I doubt the Royals in Buckingham Palace were having any more fun than these lusty peasants in the great outdoors. And check out those codpieces!
