Visit the Norman Rockwell Museum & Edith Wharton's home The Mount while exploring beautiful western Mass

Beautiful Berkshires

 

Monday, June 25, 2018

 

The Norman Rockwell Museum houses the largest collection of original art by America’s most beloved artist.  You will see Norman Rockwell’s original artwork and his covers from the Saturday Evening Post, as well as the exhibit “Keepers of the Flame: Parrish, Wyeth, Rockwell and the Narrative Tradition”.  Artists N. C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, and Norman Rockwell are three of the most recognized narrative picture makers of the past century. Rockwell, Wyeth, and Parrish painted heartwarming tales, grand adventures, and elaborately conceived fantasies with the same principles and techniques of their ancestral mentors, creating iconic imagery and unforgettable narratives.

 

You’ll have free time for lunch downtown, then we’ll visit The Mount, Edith Wharton’s 42–room classical revival mansion that has undergone an extensive 9.5 million dollar restoration that has brought the house and gardens back to life.  Edith Wharton is one of America’s greatest writers, author of “The Age of Innocence” & “Ethan Frome”, among others, writing over 40 books in 40 years, and she had a passion for gardening and landscape design.  She envisioned her gardens as an elegant series of outdoor rooms and created unique architectural compositions planned in concert with the house and the surrounding natural landscape.  Over three million dollars has been spent to restore her gardens to Wharton’s orginal plans.  We’ll take guided tours of both the mansion and gardens.
