North Carolina Museum of Art, Part Two

Aren't you glad we don't dress like this anymore? Do click to enlarge and look at the incredible detail painted here. The gilded lace cuffs are works of art!

The title was Pilgrim (or something like that.)

Lotus flowers - some of my favorites.

This painting is luminous and appears to glow from within. The grapes are marvelous!

One of our three Andrew Wyeth paintings.

I don't remember the artist here, but I have always loved the faces on these boys, as they listen to their friend tell a tall tale.

The blue velvet painted here is so realistic that you would swear you could actually feel it.

Part three tomorrow.

The top one reminds me of when it was fashionable to bind one's bosom and stick one's tummy out giving a faux pregnant look. One of the first pictures I bought demonstrates it and I still have it. It wasn't in my life time I hasten to add:)

I'm thinking that dress was not meant to do housework in.

You are enticing me to start looking for a museum near me. It really used to be hard to be a woman, but then that man looks like he had to spend a lot of time dressing also.
Sure makes me appreciat my sneakers and shorts.

I am SO glad for cotton clothing and short shorts! ;-)

I can only look at that fancy dress and picture me dragging those cuffs through the ketchup.

I love Andrew Wyeth's work.

The kiddoes and I are going to go this weekend for a bit of art-gazing and then some trail walking. Here's hoping the weather holds!

Judy...I seem to be having a problem with your sute---I'm not sure why. So, I hope this comment gets posted. I read both posts about this Museum...What an interesting collection of Art....I look forward to Part 3. The Building is rather odd, isn't it? One does wonder what they were!
But, truly, as long as the Art inside is displayed Beautifully, personally, I think that is what really matters....!
