The Entry Hall from the Third Floor



This is a view of the entry hall to the Wadsworth Atheneum, showing a mural by Sol Lewitt.  The mural and entry renovations were funded by Helen and Harry Gray.   Mr. Gray was the CEO of Hartford-based United Technologies for many years.

This post is linked to Monday Murals.

That is very striking. Love that mural, too. For some reason this reminds me just a tad of the d'Orsay in Paris.

What a cheerful entry with a wild and swirly decorated wall.

I wish there was a Paris-Hartford-Seattle flight with layover at the museum...

Beautiful entrance befitting a fine gallery. I wouldn't have expected that modern mural but I like it very much. It ads color and drama.

I remember that you have shown us some of Lewitt's work before - this one looks great.

It was good to catch up with your posts of the last 3 weeks. Julie and i were away in Papua New Guinea and Australia, in part to see the total solar eclipse. We had very limited and expensive internet access, so I fell behind in keeping up with my favorite photo blogs.

Hands up - I was fooled. I look at the Sunday shot first and thought you were photographing the ceiling. It is a wall. Fabulous to see this photograph next showing the whole picture.
