I like the seam between the exhibition of French paintings and sculptures and the main part of the Wadsworth Atheneum, but some might think it is jarring. The exhibition is in a series of decorous galleries painted a somber light blue. But, looking through the door to the galleries' entrance, we see another dazzling Sol Lewitt mural, the formal marble bust of an esteemed citizen whose name and sculptor I was not able to find, and elaborate railings. The Lewitt mural is Wall Drawing #1131, Whirls and Twirls (2004).
