Pinboard for Love

Heart-shaped valentines card, c. 1850-1899, from Metropolitan Museum of Art

Are you as overwhelmed with Valentine’s inspiration as I am? I can’t turn on the TV without being bombarded with diamond commercials. And the internet is overflowing with heart-shaped DIYs. I’m a bit over it all.

But the historian in me is really loving the Met’s love-themed pinterest board filled with artistic works. It’s a look at love and romance within the Met’s fantastic and diverse collection. Much more my speed.
