… if he had known that his portrait would end up all the way in Japan.  Courtesy of Musee Fesch, Napolean and various Italian Renaissance works (including this stunning Boticelli) are holding court in Kyoto Museum until May 24th.   By all means go and take a look.  It’s only 12 bucks, and it sure beats going all the way to Corsica.

    And dead! Apparently his death mask is on display there too, ugh. Anyway, today at JJ’s one of the customers gave us tickets. We are planning to go en masse, it’ll be Waterloo all over again!
