''The Look of Love'

Winterthur Museum (Route 52, five miles south of Route 1) presents "The Look Of Love: Eye Miniatures from the Skier collection" through Jan. 5. Sometimes called lover's-eye jewelry, the history of these watercolors intricately dabbed on tiny pieces of ivory dates back to the late 18th century. According to lore, the trend began with a forbidden love affair between the young Prince of Wales and Maria Fitzherbert in 1784. The Prince secretly proposed marriage with a piece of jewelry containing a small portrait of his own eye and won her heart. Today it is believed only 1,000 pieces still exist, and this collection is considered to be the largest in the world. The intimate portraits are set into elaborately jeweled brooches, rings, lockets, pendants, small boxes, toothpick cases, and other tiny tokens of affection. Museum admission $18 for adults, $16 for students and seniors, $5 for ages 2 to 11. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Call 800-448-3883 or visitwinterthur.org.
