9:30am From my Journal: “Today we are going to see E’s home as it might have been in the 17th century. The renderings this page are of her home . . . sacked of all her families belongings . . . now a museum. The building is a huge disappointment. . . an ugly blockish pale brown unadorned building. In we go.”
“Arrive without traveling; See all without looking;
Do all without doing.” George Harrison
From my Journal: “From the museum @ the Palazzo. NO Watercolors allowed! [Pencil then colored sitting outside during lunch.] Damask w/ floral and foliated pattern brocade with gold thread. Lace from the edges of the sleeve. Loose fabric bustle. Mantua [left] loosely draped, displays rich silk to best advantage. Coat-like construction, held by sash. Skirt over lace petticoats. BANNED from the court of Louis XIV!”
“Day dress [right] is wool with stripes embroidered in silver gilt thread.”
[After] “Drew the back of the palace after our tour. I wonder if Moore ever saw it, because of he did he’d have to see the barn-like shapes of these two wings ends. They are the most interesting parts of the building. . . The language barrier kept me from getting answers about boarded up windows. To a late lunch.”
