I finally found the photographer who took (the top) picture that I’ve seen on Tumblr so much. I wanted to know where my dream garden existed IRL, so I checked it out. Jonathan Levitt is based in Maine, so maybe that dreamy photo was taken there? Plus- more great shots by him. swoon.

Charles Wilson Peale painted Staircase Group in 1795, showing two of his sons climbing a spiral staircase.
My favorite part of this piece is probably the unexpected character who plays the lead in its most famous (if possibly apocryphal) associated story: as the Philadelphia Museum of Art relates, “Rembrandt Peale, another son, recalled that his father’s friend George Washington, misled by Peale’s artifice, tipped his hat and greeted the two young men as he walked by.”
A close second, though, is the wonderful way in which Peale has shaded Titian’s knee, so that it seems to extend ever so slightly past the door frame into the light.
Even for his signature, Peale chooses not to break the illusion, putting a card on the step next to his son’s shoe to bear his name instead.
