Saint Jerome, the Priest

This bronze statue, by Ivan Meštrović, is located at 2343 Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C. in front of the Croatian Embassy. Ivan Meštrović donated this work to the Croatian Franciscan Fathers, who commissioned it as Saint Jerome. Saint Jerome (341 – 420 A.D.) was born on the territory of modern Croatia. The inscription reads, “Greatest doctor of the church.”

These are just a few selections from Saint Dominic’s Catholic Church located on E Street SW in Washington, DC. I’ll be posting more images of their beautiful stained glass windows over the coming days and weeks. Enjoy!

Besides the stunning display of stained glass, Saint Dominic’s contains Stations of the Cross that are truly lovely.

A Couple of Selections from the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden: Sculpture Saturday on a Sunday, September 6, 2020

Yesterday I had the extreme pleasure of visiting the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. Here are just a couple of selections from that visit. Look here in the upcoming days/weeks when I will be sharing the fruits of that visit. Besides the sculpture, I was also able to capture a few decent shots of the butterflies (no monarchs, mostly the little brown ones.) At any rate, do keep an eye on this space if you are interested in a brief, virtual tour (in digestible pieces) of the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden on the Mall in Washington, DC.
