Tour by Drs Kees Kaldenbach, a professional Art History scholar with excellent teaching skills. Specialist in Fine art and Design, Architecture and History. VIP entry. Entry best at from 9 or 10AM.

Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency.  I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours. The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‘Professor’ and offer full transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons.

Titian, Sacred and Profane love. What an enormous effort for a man to choose the right type of partner.

 

The art works in this Borghese Gallery were collected,  by one of the really great scoundrels of that age, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V. Tough-minded, Borghese stole and extorted whatever he could not legally buy right away.

Scipione Borghese was a major patron of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and the sculptures are displayed here in the spaces for which they were originally intended. Note the 3D effects!

Borghese also avidly collected works by Caravaggio.

 

Please note, I will be your private Professore, and fly in from Amsterdam, Holland especially for you. Best entry time at 9 AM. Timed tickets must be bought!
