Back to School Windows

Our "Classic" back to school windows go out to Charles and Evelyn, and my friend's/ classmate's parents, and all parents who against their better judgement allowed us to pursue degrees in Liberal Arts with majors in Art History, Studio Art, Classics, Latin, Greek, Philosophy, English Literature, etc.  While traditionally not the first step on a path to financial riches, it has led many on a route to becoming great teachers, artists, writers..... not to mention dinner party guests.
The initial inspiration for the windows was the set of four Neoclassical chairs.  We continued the Classical theme with some Greek architecture and olive branches using traditional ancient Greek vase painting colors.  Fresh lemons, not Greek, but a nice hit of color!  Set of four Neoclassical chairs c. 1960  SOLD
