This summer when the Beav and I went down to Concord, we took a day to go see the renovated space for the Harvard art museums. The expansion is quite beautiful and we had a nice day wandering through the collections. Since I’d like to show something here to remind me of which trip this was, here are three works that stuck out for me that day.
The Drunken Silenus was a large-scale painting of large-scale bodies of the type we never get to see.
This Ammi Phillips portrait is gruesome and gorgeous.
And for personal, traumatic (read: foolish) reasons, I will forever be drawn to paintings of Gloucester, Mass.
