And the blogging is silly.  I can’t help myself, and I laughed with glee when it was revealed to me that Frederic Edwin Church, that OH so important central figure in the Hudson River school of painters….sanded back this fine antique acquisition because he found the dress ‘too white’!!   Gasp’s all round, but makes perfect sense to me and I feel he did indeed improve it – but there I give myself away as a decorator I suppose don’t I?   Reckless disregard for the fine arts.  Well Elsie (Mendle – is there any other?) would have approved, I’ve no doubt what-so-ever!
