Spring – At Long Last?

After trudging through the ice and slush on Saturday, we dropped by the Met, and found Spring in the form of a Byzantine tapestry from Panopolis,

then to melancholy, with a beautiful ink drawing by Charles de La Traverse

and back to joy with a litho by Edvard Munch. A complete story, across centuries and cultures, encapsulated within a space of a few feet!.

To top it off, the “Ink” show is really superb, and gave me a new perspectiveve on Chinese modern art. As a bonus on Sunday, I saw a robin, one of the harbingers of the impending arrival of spring.
