Romantic Painting - The Dahesh Museum

[Guest Post by Jeff Perren]

Some soul-refreshing delights from the great little (relatively young) Dahesh Museum in New York. Highly recommended for anyone fond of the Musee D'Orsay in Paris, or of 19th century Academic art in general.

Here are some samples. Click on the titles to view at the Dahesh Museum website.
