Rococo Valentines

Rococo Valentines

He was known for his “delicately” colored scenes of romance, his “obsessive” style due to master François Boucher, and themes that were sensual love.

Pop-Up Garden

Norton Simon Museum

As many native New Yorkers will tell you, unless it was for a field trip, they never went to the Statue of Liberty until visiting friends dragged them there.
