Cult of Beauty: The Victorian Avant-Garde 1860–1900

While the family was in town, we went to the Legion of Honor to see the Cult of Beauty exhibition. Although I appreciated the design aestheticism of the furnishings, my favorite part was the James Abbott McNeil Whistler (JAMW) paintings/etchings. He really strikes a cord with me.

Harmony in Grey and Green (1872-74)

Symphony in White No. 1  (1862)

Nocturne: Blue and Gold (1872)



About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
