Jon Crispin's Notebook

The Clark

Posted in Art, Jon Crispin, museums, painters, Uncategorized by joncrispin on 04/04/2016


Cris and I drove to Williamstown yesterday to meet up with Peggy Ross and her husband Peter.  The Clark is always the draw, and every time I go something new grabs me.  These Renoirs are quite nice.


I have always liked this Sargent on the right (“A Street in Venice”).

Naked Women Sculpture

Cris really likes these figures. I can’t remember the artist.

I spent a lot of time sitting in front of the Turner that I mentioned in a previous post.

    The Clark is wonderful! I went for the first time last year to see the Van Gogh exhibit. Then went back recently to see the rest of the museum. It is wonderful to discover and rediscover. And what great surroundings.

    Nice post, Jon. I would love to see that museum, and so nice they allow photography. The little figures are by Degas, and when I checked your link to look at the Clark, I see they have one of the Little Dancer statues.

      Thanks Ted. It is such an amazing museum. Thanks for identifying the figures as Degas. Appreciate your comment. Best, Jon
