The Mise En Green blog by Arden Sherman showcases vintage photography from a time when museum galleries were littered with plants.

Part-nostalgic and part-informative, this photo series leaves one peering into the past at a time when greenery was just as much a part of installations as the art pieces themselves. With this collected imagery of retro galleries, one can long for a time when there was more life in the hallowed halls of museums.

Mise En Green is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based curator, exhibition producer and writer Arden Sherman. His keen eye for collecting these vintage photographs make for blog filled with a tasteful minimalism that emotes with its simple beauty. Alas, Mise En Green provides context by contrasting with modern gallery aesthetic codes making for a refreshing throwback that is visually pleasing.
