One more wedding related post, and then it's back to business as usual, I promise :)
Tom and I honeymooned to coastal Massachusetts. Specifically, we stayed in a castle B&B in Marblehead. The castle was built in the early 20th century as a reproduction of Erik the Red's castle. It overlooked a beautiful park and Marblehead harbor, and honestly, I can't imagine a more Pre-Raphaelite, romantic spot in the entire U.S.
The original plan was to spend a day or two around Salem, and also to go into Boston to visit the Fogg Museum, where there are several Burne-Jones artworks, and also perhaps the MFA in Boston as well as the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum. Sadly, none of that worked out. I was devastated to discover that the artwork I most wanted to see at the Fogg, Burne-Jones Depths of the Sea (my favorite artwork by him) is currently out of the public eye while the Fogg is under renovation work. I was so upset when I heard this, I had to express it in picture form:
One Pre-Raphaelite related event going on that I wish I had been able to catch while we were in Boston, however, was the Imperishable Beauty exhibit at the MFA. The exhibit features Art Nouveau jewelry, but apparently also features Rossetti's Bocca Baciata. So if you happen to be in the Boston area, you might want to check it out!
