Treasures from the Norton Simon travel to New York

The Norton Simon is one of my favorite museums in Los Angeles, or for that matter anywhere in the world. Beautiful architecture, housing collections of European and Asian art. In particular I rank Francisco de Zurbaran’s Still Life with Lemons, Oranges and a Rose (below) among the most remarkable paintings I have ever had the privilege of admiring.

Well, along with other treasures from the Norton Simon, it is now on display in New York thanks to an exhibition organized by The Frick Collection. Rubens, Murillo and Bassano, among others, are also part of the show. And keep in mind this is only a tiny part of the collections of the Norton Simon.

Until May 10, 2009.

    The Norton Simon is a fabulous museum. The Degas bronze dancers are simply gorgeous.
    It would be Los Angeles’ D’Orsay.

    Hello Catherine! Congrats on your book! Although the sentiment is a bit belated it is very heartfelt!
    I love the Norton Simon! I think it’s wonderful that we all share our works of art! I have had the privilege of seeing many amazing paintings because they were on loan to a museum closer to me! I now really want to see Zurbaran’s Still Life in person now. I suppose I’ll have to wait a bit! Great post. I can’t wait to sit down with some tea and catch up on all of your posts that I have missed :)
    Best wishes,
    Judith~
