Taking Pleasure in Beauty
New Englanders surround themselves with art for a variety of reasons: because they take pleasure in beauty, because displaying art links them to a cultured and wealthy elite, because particular items reflect something about their own history.
Historic New England’s collections are rich in the paintings, prints, and sculpture with which people in the region have lived for centuries.
