The Newport Art Museum has a delightful collection of small watercolor sketches by William Trost Richards on exhibit titled “From Pennsylvania to Paradise”.  He often sent these cards to friends while on his travels.  We were amazed at the photo realism and miniature size of each piece, while also capturing the charm of the natural undeveloped Narragansett landscape.
