Cool Art

Want a great spot to escape the August heat? Head on over to San Marino to The Huntington Library and Art Collections. Last week I ducked out of the 100 degree blast and into the cool, comforting European Art gallery. (Gainsborough portraits! French marquetry pieces! Really icy air conditioning!!!)

Figurative art lovers, be sure to check out the latest exhibit of 16th and 17th century drawings: Royals, Courtiers, and Confidants: Early English Portrait Drawings on display until October 29th.

I love that entire European wing. Beautiful shot, Laurie. Makes me want to move in!

Talk about opulent! I can just see men with silk knickers and powdered wigs, walking about as ladies with piled high hair and empire waist dresses meander about.
