Many, many moons ago, I lived in the Big Apple. When I was young, but old enough to go places by myself, I would frequent the Museums that are scattered around the city. My favorite museum was one on the East side containing the Frick Collection. I assume that this was the name of the person who collected the art that was displayed.
Whenever I would go to this Museum, I would purchase a postcard of a favored piece of artwork. Here are a few .....
Mother and Children by Renoir
In the Garden by George de Forest Brush
Officer and Laughing Girl by Jan Vermeer
Young Woman with a Water Jug by Vermeer
Lady Milnes by George Romney
Countess of Warwick and Her Children by Romney
and two of my favorites
In the Meadow by Renoir
Lady Hamilton as "Nature" by George Romney
It was always such a pleasure to go into this gallery and look at these beautiful portraits.
And then there was this one.
I had the opportunity to actually see the Mona Lisa when it was on tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Unfortunately in my youth, I taped these postcards into an album, which has left the residue of the tape on the 25+ post cards. But I still treasure them as sweet memories of my time visiting these amazing museums and galleries.
I am joining Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday.
