Americans in Florence


Americans in Florence: Sargent and the American Impressionists is an exhibition at the Florence Palazzo Strozzi that looks to be amazingly good.

Fortunately, someone let me know about this before it ended.
Unfortunately, it closes in a few days (15 July, 2012).

Fortunately, those in reach can still see the show.
Unfortunately, I’m not one of them.

Fortunately, there is a website for the rest of us with some information and images.
Unfortunately, they are not large or great in number (see links in right column).

Fortunately, there are nice 360° panoramas of the galleries (use fullscreen option).
Unfortunately, you can only zoom in on a few of the works.

Fortunately, there is a catalog of the exhibition available as an iBook.
Unfortunately, you can only view it on an iOS device.

Fortunately, I have written previously about a number of the artists in the show, and my posts list resources for images.
Unfortunately, they are not all recent or up to date, but you can use Google to search from there.

Fortunately, I’m done with the fortunately/unfortunately stuff!

[Thanks to Donald C. O'Shea for the suggestion and information]
