Nassau County Museum of art
We capped off our travels at this small but engaging art museum housed in the former Childs Frick mansion.
We took in a provocative exhibition of Photo Realism (left) from the Yale University collection. Tiffany's Orient, romantic and exotic watercolors from Louis Comfort Tiffany's travels, includes one that could be seen as anticipating Photo Realism.
Forty sculptures, thoughtfully sited on the 145-acre grounds, make dramatic use of the ever-changing light and natural environment. Wood Duck, 1979, painted steel, 15 x 15 x 1, by Allen Bertoldi, is seen in an overcast and in a sunny moment - with ducks swimming nearby.
