While passing through Glens Falls, New York I found two gems: the cave that inspired Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales, and the impressive Hyde Collection, a locally built art gallery of prominence. The collection includes a Rembrandt which is, in my opinion, one of the best paintings of Jesus ever. Sadly it is currently on loan to the Louvre. He also looks like he’d fit right in at a dead show. This wall of books is from the old Hyde house where the collection is displayed. Interestingly, the shelf contains a first edition of “The Last of the Mohicans.”
