18th Century Love

Going to the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh tomorrow to see the exhibition on the amazing Palladio!

Palladio (1508-1580) was Jefferson’s favorite architect, and as you can see, he used quite a lot of Palladio’s ideas and sketches to design Monticello, the Rotunda at the University of Virginia and Poplar Forest!
