Need a change of quaran-scene? While working from home, BMA Librarian Laura Woodard has been dreaming about one of her favorite #ArtEscapes from the Museum’s collection, a sunny landscape painting by American artist Victor Higgins.

“I can’t help but feel invited into this charming landscape by Victor Higgins. The bright, citrusy foliage against the stark white of the aspen trees speaks of a joyous and glorious morning. I make a point to visit this painting every time I roam the American galleries.”
