Maira Kalman at Monticello

We've admired Thomas Jefferson's bed alcove at Monticello both here and here. And so has Maira Kalman...

Her recent visit to Monticello is depicted in her blog, And the Pursuit of Happiness, in the New York Times. Here we see, through her eyes, some of the interiors of Jefferson's home. We love the piece's accompanying text, so be sure to visit.

Here is Kalman in her own home, her apartment in Greenwich Village:
