One of my goals for this year was to sort out my photos on the computer. So far, not so good! However, I am finally trying to share some more of the photos that I took at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2014 and today I have some more treasures for you to look at.
There were so many incredible paintings and sculptures. The sculpture is called Liberty and I think the painting is of George Washington - but I am prepared to stand corrected if I am wrong, please let me know!
In my last post about the MFA I confused some of you because of the cropping of my photos. You might think that the painting is quite small or that the statue is very large because I have cropped the pictures closely. If you look below though you will see that isn't the case.
That painting goes from floor to ceiling in a massive room!!! The statue is quite small really. It was incredible to see such a massive and beautiful painting that was so large.
There are many room "sets" at the museum and this is one of them. I adore this door. If ever I build a house - of the right style! - I would love a door like this. The hearts are particularly charming I think. I have never seen sidelights like these before with a heart motif in them.
This room was very lavish with detailed wallpaper, lots of patterns and intricate details. What I really liked most of all though was the wine cooler. For two large bottles at a time! That would make for a good party wouldn't it!
I hope you enjoyed seeing some more of these treasures today!
