Sarcophagus

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

The Gardner Museum conservators have been cleaning the ancient sarcophagus in the courtyard, so it’s turned for better access, and we get to see it from another angle. It’s beautiful.

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

The Davis Museum at Wellesley College has a gorgeous collection in a building spacious building where you can see between the various levels of galleries. They’re having an incredible exhibit of works by Carlo Dolci, a late Baroque painter whose work I know from his painting of David and Goliath at the MFA.

Nydia, the Blind Flower Girl of Pompeii

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

In the past few days, we visited three museums that we’d never been to before, and we were pleasantly surprised to find that two of the three museums both have a copy of one of our favorite sculptures at the MFA! Turns out, there are a lot of copies of this sculpture and it was delightful to run in to two of them, two days in a row, in two different cities.

Just for fun, here’s a list of all of the versions of Randolph Rogers’ Nydia, the Blind Girl of Pompeii that I’ve seen so far:
