I have something better than food to share today. Artwork from some of the European masters. We went to the opening of an exhibit at the High Museum in Atlanta last night, and I got to see some stunning pieces from the Phillips Collection. I want to share some photos taken from my phone (so they're not the best). Plus, it was opening night, and the crowds were terrible. So sometimes it was difficult to get a good angle or to zoom in to see without a head in the way! I took a gazillion photos but will only share several here. Some, you may recognize!

|Two Girls by Berthe Morisot|
Finally, I'll share what was probably my favorite in this exhibit. A very large Degas. I'm sure you're probably all familiar with this one. It was stunning. The color...the light...and they had it hung on a dark green wall which really set it off. I looked it up, and found out it's 4'3" x 3'2."

Picasso, Van Gogh, Degas, Manet, Monet, Daumier, Ingres, Chardin, Cezanne, Delacroix, Morisot, Seurat, Constable, Sisley, Monticelli, Gauguin, Matisse, Rodin (sculptures), and many other talented artists.
I so appreciate Duncan Phillips, who opened the first museum of modern art in the U.S., and who made this collection possible.
