Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ for this week is ‘Exhibit’. I’m a bit tardy with my contribution, as my mind is on our forthcoming trip to South Africa in early October.
I’ve chosen this exhibit which I saw at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. The original bronze sculpture lies in the Cimitero Evangelico degli Allori on the outskirts of Florence. Elizabeth Boott Duveneck 1846-1888 was the beloved wife of the American painter Frank Duvenek.
I think this is one of the most peaceful funerary monuments that I’ve ever seen and obviously was created with so much love. Her calm facial features, the beautiful folds of her covering and the palm branch draped across her body, I found very moving. A lovely ‘Exhibit’.
