visiting the Victorian Radicals exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum

Last Friday, we took a day trip to Seattle.  The main focus of the trip for me was to tour the Victorian Radicals exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum.

As usual, we got to Seattle on public transportation: bus, ferry, and train




We started off the day with a cup of coffee at a cafe on the 40th floor.






From there, I headed over to the Seattle Art Museum for the Victorian Radicals exhibition. I really enjoyed this show.   I took photos of some of my favorites:




Rossetti produced three variations on this composition. The one above, the Birmingham version, was begun the year before he died and thus left incomplete.



Musica by Kate Elizabeth Bunce ca. 1895-97, oil on canvas

quoted from the exhibition card: “Kate Elizabeth Bunce was an English painter and poet associated with the Arts and Crafts movement in Birmingham. “

paragliding

Our second bicycle-camping trip of the season was to our favorite Fort Ebey State Park on Whidbey Island.






Along with the beautiful landscape and ocean views, we had the added pleasure of watching the paragliding.
