…from Museums in Washington D.C.
It’s time for the letter M in Jenny’s Alpabe-Thursday.
This is fire etched wood relief called The Adoration of St. Joan of Arc, 1896, J. William Fosdick. This first series of photos were taken at the National Portrait Gallery.
Sadly I didn’t take photos of all the descriptions of the art and I didn’t have my museum husband or daughter with me who read everything in museums to help me out. OYE!
This was so mysterious and sad. This is a bronze memorial of Henry Adam’s wife “Clover”. She committed suicide in 1885 by drinking chemicals used for processing photographs. Adams commissioned Augustus Saint-Gaudens to create this memorial of his wife.
A most interesting canvas…
Now I’m moving on to the National Gallery of Art…
For my finale I’m posting 2 more Masterpieces from Monet…
I’m going to be traveling out and about being a tour guide for the next few days. I’ll try to visit sometime this weekend.
We were so excited that the U.S. Women beat France on Wednesday to go to the World Cup Finals on Sunday. They will be playing Japan who beat Sweden on Wednesday. Go U.S.A.!
