"If one sits on the head of the Great Buddha and looks across the green valley, framed by the arch of the grotto and dotted with fort-like manors that are almost tiny villages, he has a view and a sensation of rare beauty."—Maynard Owen Williams
The rest of the museum collection includes pieces from the permanent collection of the Pennsylvania Impressionists and New Hope school, a small but lively chapter in the history of art.
We looked at art all afternoon. But it was nice to leave early knowing it would still be there the next time we go and that we don’t have to fly 3000 miles to see it again.
We drove back through New Hope and Lambertville enjoying the lovely afternoon and its blue skies.
Later that night, I saw a few leaves falling from the trees. Summer is about over. We talked about the food on our journey around Italy, the truffles, the lovely pastas every night, the galleries, so much art, memories that hopefully we’ll all be sharing 51 year from now.
