French writer #ÉmileZola was entranced by this #ClaudeMonet painting. He wrote that the woman's dress was "dotted with sequins of light like drops of water". You can stand before this painting at our exhibition #InventingImpressionism http://bit.ly/1OqTITa

Alto ejemplo de la exquisita sensibilidad de los impresionistas. Luces y sombras que conmueven.

This painting by Italian #renaissance painter #CosimoTura is thought to be one of a series of pictures of the Muses for a 'studiolo' or study at the Este castle of Belfiore near Ferrara. Today, you can see this vibrant work in Room 55: http://bit.ly/1HpNihS

I have quite a few souvenirs from my visits to the gallery over the years. One of my favourites is the tea towel from the Late Rembrandt exhibition because it featured the Art Gallery of Ontario's Lady with a Lap Dog.

Seurat's 'Bathers at Asnières' was painted before he invented his famous pointillist technique, but he did later rework parts of this picture using dots of colour. For example, dots of orange and blue were added to the boy's hat. Find out more: http://bit.ly/1H8gfPf
