Finding da Vinci and Kandinsky in Nicaragua
During our visit to Leon, a town in northern Nicaragua, these two doors caught my eye – although for different reasons.
Door #1 is ornate and classic. It reminds me a bit of this da Vinci painting, Ginevra de’ Benci, at the National Gallery of Art in DC.
Door #2 is a splatter of accidental colors and stencils. It reminds me of this Kandinsky painting, which is more improvisation than accident. It’s called Improvisation 26 Rowing 1912.
Don’t you wonder what’s behind the doors?
