The living room is dominated by a wonderful painting by Helen Frankenthaler– and it’s called Lush Spring… and the colors are just so wonderful… the greens just pop out, notes Mrs. Cheney. Moving to the library she describes a carved ship made by French prisoners during the Napoleonic period and it’s carved from animal bone. I think that prisoner condition in that era were pretty awful and people did this incredibly intricate work in order to earn just a little bit of money and they would then sell the ship so they could maybe buy a little extra food.
