3 1/2 hours South of Kansas City, just off 71 Highway we arrived at Crystal Bridges Art Museum. It is beautiful. It is well-funded. It is worth the trip. The works of art inside and outside of the buildings would excite the best of collectors. I have included just a sample of the beautiful women, memorialized in art, scattered through the gallery.
The Goddess Prosperine by Hiram Powers ( 1840) is poised and elegant, as is the lady in the oil painting behind her.
Summertime, Mary Cassatt (1894) reminds me of summers on the lake. The ducks are just a bonus.
Female torso — I failed to identify the artist when we visited the museum, but isn’t she beautiful?
