Is it Spring Yet?

Spring (1890) by Thomas Wilmer Dewing, American Art Museum
It has felt a little bit like spring in D.C. this week and it's hard not to get excited about it. Sure there are a few weeks of winter left, but in the Mid-Atlantic it's hard to ever know what will happen with the weather.  Usually we go straight from winter to the hot and humid days of summer.  For now, I'm going to let myself be a little excited (and hopeful) about the possibility of spring.

Many artists depicted their own hope in paintings of spring.  To find paintings of spring in collections around the country, search the Art Inventories.
