Christina's World

by JenTay »

I read somewhere you can see the hill where that beautiful painting was done as well as the studio of the painter and his home (blanking on his name). Does anyone know where that is? Also, where can I find the best lobster roll in Maine?

You could get a LOT of argument about the best lobster roll (including some who claim it's at the Red Hook Lobster Pound in Brooklyn!) but a highly-recommended (by my wife) version is at the Lobster Shack on the beach at Two Lights Rd in Cape Elizabeth, south of Portland.

As for Christina's World, the house is the Olson house, Christina's home, in Cushing, Maine, and is open to the public. Didn't know until just now that although Christina Olson often modeled for Wyeth, Wyeth's wife was the model for the torso in this picture!
