The Flipside with Robert R. Van Ryzin

Back From the Exhibit
February 21, 2008

I'm back from my trip to Minneapolis and the opening of the Anders Zorn (see prior posting for details) at the Swedish American Institute.

It was fun, and I was able to snap shots that will come in handy in the future. Among Zorn's subjects, which ranged from common folk to U.S. presidents, was Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

Saint-Gaudens designed the gold $10s and $20s that circulated in the United States in the early part of the 20th century. Shown here is detail from one of Zorn's etchings of Saint-Gaudens that is currently on exhibit.
