I have a framed print of this painting, which I purchased at Oslo, Norway’s National Museum in 1995. P and I had it framed when we lived in CA in 1999. It has hung in my bedroom ever since.

When I purchased this, I felt like the girl in the window; just starting out in my life, staring out at the world.

In the last few years, I look at this painting and still love it so much, yet I feel that the girl has escaped from the window and is out in the world, living.

When I visited the museum page just now, it turns out they are building a new museum, and it will open next year, in 2020.
