The Wright Tour Pt. 9: The Huntington
My final post on this amazing tour courtesy of the Wright Trust takes us to the Huntington Library in San Marino (next door to Pasadena).
I had visited the gardens and galleries once briefly back in 1995 and was very happy to have another opportunity to see them.
Poor Medusa; always losing her head.
This bronze sculpture of Diana the Huntress has always been a fave:
Our tour was focused on the American Gallery, aka the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries:
Always a sucker for Art Deco styling:
The way the light was coming into this gallery almost seemed like something out of Star Trek.
Beam me up, Scotty!
A favorite painting:
The reason we were here was an exhibit including quite a few Arts & Crafts pieces. How about this dining room table. LOVE IT!
When our toured ended, I wandered over to the main house which also serves as a gallery.
The two paintings that draw the crowds in this gallery are "Pinkie" by Thomas Lawrence…
and "Blue Boy" by Thomas Gainsborough.
And then I was ready to go home. I missed Willis.
