Metsu at the National Gallery

If you're on facebook, do drop by the National Gallery. They're running an interesting competition. They have a Metsu exhibition coming up,

(Dutch/Flemish 16th/17th century interiors are a favourite of mine. Vermeer especially but Metsu will do at a pinch.)

and they have a beautiful, evocative, mysterious pair of paintings, a man writing a letter and a woman reading a letter. They ask you to imagine what either letter says.

You can also do it on Twitter @NGIreland but that's kinda hard. An interesting challenge though.

There's prizes and it's free to enter.

an exclusive chance to win invites to the exhibition's opening night on Friday 3rd September (wine + cheese + Metsu = a winning combination!!)

Thanks for posting this one, I would never have come across it. Maybe its obvious on the facebook page but I don't see anywhere to post my genius letter...
