Introducing Lego Lynette Jensen with her collection of historical antique prints 👋🏼
.
Lynette Jensen is an independent scholar and philanthropist who donates collections of antique prints, photographs, and sketches on ancient world themes to universities and other institutions. She specializes in using the visual image as primary historical evidence.
.
Since new medication substantially restored her health in 2014, she has worked to show her gratitude to the disciplines of Ancient History, Classics, Philosophy, and Art, that sustained her spirit through the years of illness. Lynette’s donation of William Hogarth’s “Analysis of Beauty” engraving led to the recognition of the identity of the Nicholson Hermes at @sydney_uni’s Nicholson Museum. A Roman history course based on another donation is planned for early 2018 at @macquarieuni. Other donations are at @oxford_uni, @artgalleryofsa, and the @britishschoolatrome.
.
Lynette is inspired by some of the world’s greatest collector-philanthropists like Sir William Hamilton, whose collection formed the basis on the @britishmuseum antiquities collection, Arthur Ross who worked with universities to share his significant print collection now at @yale, and J. Paul Getty who had a strong commitment to excellent and education, and a drive to share his collection with the world.
.
Lego Lynette Jensen says: “An understanding of ancient history, philosophy, and art gave me a way to put things into perspective when I was ill for many years. Now, I plan to leave no stone unturned to repay my gratitude to the cultural institutions who represent those disciplines. I like to provide a different perspective to the study of ancient history by using visual images as primary evidence. My collection aims to provide universities and other institutions with material to enrich their collections, and to inspire new ideas and ways of seeing.”

“May our philosophies keep pace with our technologies. May our compassion keep pace with our powers. And may love, not fear, be the engine of change.” ~ Dan Brown.

As a lover of symbology, puzzles, mystery, history and art, Dan Brown’s books are right up my street. Looking forward to finishing this tonight for the big reveal!!🤓

Fear of failure is very common. Don't let that stop you from archieving your goals.
