About 10 days I saw an article about an art exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It was a show on Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese, with paintings brought from collections all over the world. I thought it would be great to go, but sort of tucked it away in my mind. I revisited the idea last Sunday and saw that today was the last day for the show. I really wanted to see the show, but am trying to be frugal and not make impetuous purchases, including travel, which is my favorite impetuous purchase. With the help of Priceline and MegaBus, I was able to arrange my art excursion very economically and on Saturday morning I was off to Boston.
The weather cooperated and it was a beautiful weekend. I did some sightseeing, book browsing, garden sitting and spent all of today at the Museum. The exhibit was glorious. It was arranged thematically and it was a thrill to see "Supper at Emmaus" as done by all three artists. I am still thinking about Titian's version. Glorious! I am a great fan of Veronese and came to have a deeper appreciation of Titian and Tintoretto. Also spent time looking at the American paintings and furniture.
The person who came closest to guessing my destination was Neabear. They were all good guesses. I love just about anywhere in New England -- definitely due for a trip to Maine -- and overdue for Atlantic City. There is a small, but useful souvenir for Neabear. Please leave me your email and I will be delighted to send your winning prize. I liked it so much I got one for myself, too.
Unless I decide to do something wild next week, my next trip is to another favorite place and I can't wait. No guessing this time. I am off in ten more days for the St. Lawrence to see two of my favorite people. Hoo Hah!
