Connecticut: The Wadsworth Atheneum 14 years ago

I suppose these might almost be considered historic photos especially since the major renovation of the galleries was unveiled in August 2015. In spite of that or maybe because of it, I decided to print these never before published photos I took on a visit in the fall of 2001. I hope you enjoy them and that they peek your curiosity enough to want to go and see how much the museum has changed. 

The photos of course only reflect my own interest and are not intended to portray the entire museum. As the photos indicate, on this visit I was more fascinated with the decorative arts than paintings.


  1. Lovely photos! I'm not familiar with this museum, but looks like it has some wonderful stuff

  2. The Wadsworth Atheneum is supposed to be the oldest public art museum in the United States and is worth a visit for sure.
