Rooms with a View


A View of Naples Through a Window, 1824


If I was in New York right now, I'd be checking out this interior inspired exhibition at the Met. It is called Rooms with a View - The Open Window in the 19th Century and all works focused on the "romantic motif of the open window". I like the hushed sparse rooms and the contemplative moments.
