Just in case any one is traveling to NYC over the holidays, Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring (c.1665), along with fifteen other carefully chosen works by Dutch master painters, including masterpieces by Rembrandt and Halls, is on display at the Frick Museum from now until January 19, 2014. The Frick is the final venue of the American tour. The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague, the Netherlands, is undergoing extensive renovations and during this time has lent masterpieces that have not traveled in almost thirty years. For more information about the exhibit visit the website of The Frick Collection

    • You are welcome Kimberlee–I just had to share–incredible–beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!

      And agree re seeing masterpieces such as Girl with the Pearl. I think that is the whole point of these Frick exhibits; they are designed for people who would not in their life ordinarily be able to travel to see paintings such as these masterworks.

  • Nice background and information here – and you don’t have to go far to find them back in cape ann either…all the local talent plus – many have roots out of New York – John Paul Manship right there in lanesville used to do yardwork and shoveling of snow his drive way, swam in the quarry next to his property on one side and the other side also had a quarry – pond off Washington street if my memory serves me right he even had a nice Nash Rambler a big barn with all kinds of stuff in it then 60’s I remember a civil war uniform in there…fruit tree’s also.

      • Thanks Kim and him and his wife were great to us brother me and my younger one while shoveling snow call us in to warm up and hot chocolate with marshmellows. Was a beautiful place and able to look over both quarries…surrounded by the woods then also egg corn tree’s. His fruit trees were tasty also…He even painted a picture of me studio or living room but as a 10-11 year old hard to stay still, and got paid. Went to Fred Sarri’s and bought some comics and goodies mad vs mad magazine, Sgt Rock, other comics\
