Today in Art

Can you find Saint Agnes in this Joseph-Désiré Court painting?

It's a bit like a "Where's Waldo?" isn't it?

The Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rouen restored this painting, entitled The Martyrdom of Saint Agnes in the Roman Forum, in the Year 303, under Diocletian, last year and is exhibiting it in their sculpture garden.

The painting is enormous, as you can see in this article.
