Thank god for my Museumcard. Given the frequently gloomy, dreary weather here, there isn’t much to do on the weekends except stuff indoors. Thankfully, there are a good number of museums to keep it interesting.
Barely a soul in sight – we got in just like that.
Was surprised to find works by Van Gogh, Picasso, Cezanne, etc in the displays. Only then did I realize Impressionism fell under modern art.
This happens to be a Picasso which I’m sure is worth millions upon millions. If I was into painting and used my left hand, it would definitely look like that. I have to give him props for being ahead of his time with that smiley face he painted on the top left. I’m sure that’s his way of saying ‘GOTCHA!’.
Look at all the pretty colors! To this day I don’t understand why Jackson Pollock is as popular as he is – this looks like absolute crap to me.
This was pretty, much like a design for a shower curtain. This was by Henri Matisse.
And this is where my problem with modern and postmodern art reaches its peak, referring of course to the ‘weird ones’, stuff I could not wrap my head around like this display with two trash cans and four lava lamps. Is there a hidden cosmic meaning to this?
A bunch of tin and plastic containers stacked on the floor.
Someone’s outdoor garden replicated. Intriguing.
