Hamden Public Library has a great collection of beautiful art books. Five of those beautiful art books are now on display in our large display case in front of the stairs:
Daily Life in Art by Beatrice Fontanel, The History of Gardens in Painting by Nils Buettner, The Flemish Primitives by Dirk De Vos, Women Artists by Margaret Barlow, and The Society Portrait: from David to Warhol by Gabriel Badea-Paeun.
It was Picasso who said: "Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life."
"Paintings from the Reign of Victoria: The Royal Holloway Collection, London" are now on display at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, until July 26, 2009. The Hartford Courant published an article about this exhibit. The museum is free and open to the public. Go visit and enjoy!
