Image of the Day

"Buffalo; Galloping," by Eadweard Muybridge, 1887 – featured in the buffalo room of The Great American Hall of Wonders, a new exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.

From Edward Rothstein's review in the New York Times: "The United States was a realm of vast spaces and enormous resources. And the show suggests that those resources were used with more enthusiasm than wisdom." Read more, and see more images, here.

The Great American Hall of Wonders is up through Jan. 8 – info here.
