Having New Eyes - Sacre-Coeur


The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. 

(The quote is by Marcel Proust, and the picture shows the Montmartre  hill in Paris with the Sacre-Coeur church)

Desemparats / Mother and Child /Maternité

I find this picture beautiful in a sad, melancholy way. It makes me think about all these refugees, with no idea of what the future might bring... 
It is made by Pablo Picasso in 1903, when he was only 22 years old, and it is called Desemparats, which means "helpless" in Catalan.   
It can be seen IRL in the in the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.
