I leave it too long ...

I leave it too long between visits to the Fitzwilliam. But since the really excellent new café started up, I've been going rather more often. Take a book, read over a coffee, then take a break to look at just a few pictures (that is surely much the best way to "do" a gallery). I was very struck again today by The Holy Family by the seemingly rather unregarded Sassoferrato. I just wish I was clearer in my mind about how an unbeliever should regard religious art, without double-think or sentimentality.
