A trip to Pasadena is not complete without a trip to the Huntington. It's a really lovely property. A house and galleries with lots of Georgian art, among other eras, and acres of beautiful gardens to explore. Plenty of pictures ahead...
|Whenever I walk through old homes, I love to take in |
the little details, like these louvered shutters,
tucked out of sight, in their little cabinets. So clever!
|The Huntington has so many friendly faces - well, |
famous paintings we've all seen a million times!
|I always love this painting of Lady Hamilton. |
What a hat!
|Such a lovely redingote!|
|And Mrs. Richard Cosway...|
|… with a miniature. Perhaps one of his?|
|The Huntington has many, many portrait miniatures.|
Some of them going back to the 1600's.
|I do believe this is Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire.|
|These next two ladies have excellent stomachers.|
|I love, love, love this outfit! |
This is definitely on my to do list!
The painting is of Penelope Lee Acton,
by George Romney (1791).
|And Miss Sarah Siddons as the Tragic Muse, |
by Sir Joshua Reynolds.
|I just love her shoes!|
|The sun was blazing! There was no escaping the glare…|
Beautiful day, though.
|… a little something pretty for your table…|
|What a great kerchief and hat. |
I love the ribbons on her hat.
|And some Sevres.|
|This looks like a fun party :)|
|I like the sleeve treatment.|
|The sun was shining away in the Japanese garden.|
|Foo dog wishes you a happy tuesday!|
