Today we were able to view Girl With a Pearl Earring by Vermeer at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. We were unable to take pictures, and this is the best we could do. The painting was a lot smaller than I envisioned it, but it is absolutely beautiful to behold.
Two years ago we did a big study on Paul Revere during our Heroes Quest year, and it was a nice surprise to see some of his works at the museum. Paul Revere was not only a brave minuteman, but he also was an accomplished silversmith. I have no idea what this piece is, and it is not listed that I can recall.
This is a tankard. I suppose this is the equivalent to today's super size.
