Art Galleries at The Huntington

The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a Southern California research and education institution. It was Spring Break, so the kiddies and I decided to check out the three art galleries of The Huntington Grounds: the Huntington Art Gallery, the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries and the Boone Gallery.

Here are some of the artwork we admired today:

The Scott Galleries displays one of the largest collections of California of American art from the colonial period through the mid- 20th century, including the works of Andy Warhol, Frank Lloyd Wright and Mary Cassatt, just to name a few.

“Blue Boy” by Thomas Gainsboroug and “Pinkie” by Thomas Lawrence are examples of the well known artwork displayed in the Huntington Art Gallery’s collections of 18th-century British art.

We visited The Huntington’s Rose Garden and Herb Garden after our gallery visits. The beauty were well worth the walk through.
