When it was raining interminably last weekend, I spent an afternoon enjoying the Ringling Museum of Art, one of Sarasota's true treasures. These pieces, painted by Peter Paul Rubens in 1625, are on display in the museum's first gallery. Talk about an entrance! With the two people (a teenager and an adult) standing in the lower left hand corner, you can get some perspective on the sheer size of the paintings. The museum was built by circus magnate John Ringling in 1931 to house his extensive art collection. I'm told what's on a display is just a fraction of what the museum owns.
