The Cloisters


Annunciation Tryptic, by Robert Campin, in 1432

Today dawned cold, sunny and windy. The wind had rattled Dan’s front metal gate through the night. We changed up our morning coffee routine by breakfasting at Routine. Their side salad had the most delicious cilantro vinaigrette dressing. We spent our afternoon at the Cloisters, which is at the north end of Manhattan. Part of the Met and as its name implies, it has a religious air about it. It’s architecture is as pleasing to view as its collection is and of course it houses the original of Bubs and Harry’s Annunciation Tryptic, by Robert Campin, in 1432, which is pictured above. Dinner with Ashlan and Allen later tonight.
