Philadelphia Museum of Art --> November 14, 2008

The Jenks Kindergarten took a trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I did not have the pleasure of going on the trip but here are some of the highlights as told by my daughter.

They visited China and U.S.A and Philadelphia. Her favorite piece from the China collection was the “Blue Dog House” or actually known as the Dog Cage (Goulong) from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), Qianlong Period (1736-1795), 1736-95.

Another favorite from the trip was the Staircase Group (Portrait of Raphaelle Peale and Titian Ramsey Peale) which was Made in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, 1795.

Needless to say, fun was had by all and an appreciation of the museum at this age can’t be a bad thing.
