These photos, videos, and audio presentations from the collection were enormously helpful to me. The historical background and the various schools and styles made the pieces much more meaningful. When I see these and other pieces at the museum, I'll be able to put them in context and to appreciate them more fully. These video and audio tools are really wonderful—to be able to zoom right next to the iridescent Roman glass, for instance, was magnificent!! It was so abstract, so brilliant, so finely textured, like looking at a magnified butterfly wing. Thank you so much!
