David & Goliath battle it out at the Louvre

The Louvre is breathtaking inside and out. The Mona Lisa was anti-climactic (for me) and honestly women back then should have smiled more. The ‘David & Goliath’, a two sided painting by Daniele da Volterra that sits in the middle of the the Italian wing of the Louvre has to be one of my favorite. The intensity of the duel is captured in a super vivid two sided painting. It’s almost as if the painter was attempting 3D in the 1500’s.
