Saturday at Hillwood
I spent the morning visiting Hillwood, the estate of the late Majorie Meriwether Post. I've wanted to go for sometime as I am fascinated by all things Russian and Hillwood has a marvelous Russian collection. The museum is really a tribute to a great lady more than it is an art museum. They don't do a very good job of telling you who the artists were or the subject of the portrait. But I enjoy looking at art the way private collectors see it, as part of their home, rather than the way I usually see it, in a museum. I hope to go back soon and check out the elaborate gardens that she created.
