I'm in New York all this week, and taking the opportunity to do a few things I don't usually have time for when I'm only up for a night or two. I can't remember if this was my third or fourth visit to The Cloisters, but at any rate I love being able to pretend I'm back in Europe for a few hours. It was gloriously warm and sunny out, entirely too spring-like for late November.
The Bonnefont Cloister and herb garden.
These ladies have always been my favorites of the collection. They're early 16th-century reliquary busts; here's a better photo.
One of many spooky characters carved in the capitals of the Cuxa Cloister.
