Cinnaminson, New Jersey
June 2, 2002
It has rooms that still exhibit the furnishings of its time, the ceilings along the stairs are covered with beautiful patterns in gold and light blue. A humongous fireplace in one of the rooms is made of white and green marble. But the most amazing thing is that the exposition of modern paintings and sculptures in the next rooms somehow is not out of place, but works here. And these paintings are really worth a look. Mostly you can see 3-dimensional objects that cast a shadow, and that shadow is a very interesting and creative image that adds to the object itself.
When you are done with the Castle, walk along the streets surrounding it, look at the old signs with the street names, houses with walls made of stone. It seems that nothing has changed here in 100 years, the illusion is very real except for the cars parked everywhere. This town attracted a lot of artists, Renoir was the most famous among them and you can visit his house when you are here.
