Combine your summer travels with museum stops. We certainly do!

August 3rd through November 25, The Biggs Museum in Dover, Delaware presents “John James Audubon and his Influence Today.” We have a great selection of the Havell elephant folio, octavo Audubon animals.

A terrific show “Modern Times: American Art 1910 – 1950 runs through September 3rd at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Also at the PMA now through August 22, “Brazen Folly: British Satirical Prints 1780’s – 1820’s.” We have English and French caricatures including Rowlandson, Cruickshank and SEM.

If you are in the Adirondacks, visit The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake to see their collection of arts and crafts of the region. Our collection of sporting prints are perfect for lakeside home interiors.

If in Virginia, detour to The Chrysler Museum, Norfolk’s show “Piranesi’s Prisons. ” We have many of his large scale architectural works.

Lucky enough to be travelling to London? Take in art from Down Under too with “The Florilegium: The Royal Botanical Gardens Sydney” showing at Kew Gardens.

Best wishes for a summer of art and traveling!
