Fumée d’Ambre Gris

Fumée d’Ambre Gris – Smoke of Ambergris by John Singer Sargent, 1880.
 Clark Institute in Williamstown, MA.

Enchanting study in whites.
I saw this while adventuring around the museums of western Massachusetts and I could not look away.

Also in western Mass. and very good:
the Williams College Museum of Art.

At the Worcester Art Museum I saw the Antioch mosaics that we studied in my Medieval Art in the Mediterranean class.

This is Ctesiphon, a personification of home. Late Roman.
Bonus: very close to the museum is a Swedish bakery, Crown Bakery and Cafe. During Lent they have semlor, my absolute favorite!
