book pic

Dear Docents,
I'd like to recommend a fascinating book that fits perfectly with our Line
exhibit; it's called "The Judgment of Paris," by Ross King (he also wrote
"Brunelleschi's Dome" for those of you interested in architecture) and the
subtitle says it all-The Revolutionary Decade that Gave the World
Impressionism. I'm also going to cut and paste in a list of the exhibition
works according to sections-it's a kind of map I made to help me get the
whole scope of the show in my head. It may or may not be helpful. (and I
just found out you can't send attachments to a blog!) Finally, I wish you
all the best and hope to get back to see some of the great upcoming shows.
If you're coming to Bellingham, drop me a line at this email...Barbara
