Just got the email from the MHC Alumnae Association. And what a beautiful day for it, too. ^_^

Here's the most famous artistic depiction of Mt. Holyoke--Thomas Cole's "The Oxbow":

The Oxbow - Thomas Cole - 1836

When I was a student at Mount Holyoke College, the art museum on campus had this painting on loan.

Here's a silly question. Where's the mountain?

The painting is a view *from* the mountain. So the mountain is the foreground. ^_~
