Treasures from the Nationalmuseum of Sweden: The Collections of Count Tessin

I visited the Morgan Library in May for this lovely exhibit titled "Treasures from the Nationalmuseum of Sweden: The Collections of Count Tessin". It ran from February 3 to May 14, 2017. I really love viewing this type of paintings, they are just so lovely. I hope the more I show you at this lovely little museum will be sure you make a visit next time in NYC! 

With these paintings, the frames are just as ornate as the work itself 

Just so beautiful  

This one was my most favorite. Since I am friends with a milliner, I had to send her a photo of it. Such an elegant painting.  

The architecture of the Morgan is just astounding. I love this ceiling work.  

Another close up of that painting. Just lovely in every way!  

Dining at The Morgan is a good choice as well. They serve afternoon tea here, but on this day I went for the Morgan burger and fries. If you are going to go off your diet, this would be worth it!  

Another gorgeous shot of the ceiling.
