Fragments of Desire: The Treasures of the Victoria & Albert Museum (UK) and the Clark Art Institute (USA)   

Works of art are the end product of a series of decisions made by artists and designers who plan, draw, and shape materials with their imaginations. These works may express ideas and emotions or the circumstances of an artist’s personal life or contemporary society. The Victoria & Albert Museum in London is the world’s largest museum of applied and decorative arts – a vast treasure-house of stunning wonders gathered in the days of the British Empire that spans 5,000 years of creative thought. The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, founded in 1955, is renowned for its masterpieces of French 19th-century art – particularly the Impressionist and Barbizon painters – as well as more than 200 works by Britain’s foremost 18th- and 19th-century painters, including Turner, Gainsborough, and Constable. These two museums are uniquely different in their approach to presenting the rewards of creative thought, yet both introduce audiences to the beautiful exaltations of the human spirit.
