THIS WEEK AT THE ART MUSEUM

A SUMMER MEMORY AT  THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM OF ART

 

A beautiful woman delights the eye: a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one the soul.

Unbelievably, the incomparable On the Heights by American painter Charles Courtney Curran (1861-1942) is currently not on view, at least according to the Brooklyn Museum of Art’s website. Originally from Ohio, Curran studied and worked in art capitals such as Paris and New York; he also regularly spent summers in Cragsmoor, an artist’s colony in the Hudson River Valley.

U.S. writer Minna Antrim (1861-1950) was best known for her quotes and children’s books.
