The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily lives off our souls. ~ Pablo Picasso
So after coming stateside I spent a really wonderful day hanging out with my brother’s family in Brooklyn. My little 3 year-old nephew has every construction site, including the color of any excavator involved memorized. It’s really cute, he also has an extreme fascination with one particular crane. My other nephew I fully believe thinks I’m a moron. Anytime I joke or are sarcastic he very directly and very seriously explains to me the situation. He’s quite smart and incredibly sweet and I hope someday he starts to think I’m smarter.
From there I jumped over to Manhattan for a couple of days, to see friends and have dinner in Bryant Park as well as spend a day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, home of my favorite painting, Van Gogh’s, Starry Night.
For tonight’s post, simply just a collection of some of my favorite pieces from the museum. I honestly have a love/hate relationship with modern art. Love some, Jackson Pollack’s work, really love some Picasso and not so impressed with some of the standards like Monet. And I absolutely consider some of the famous square paintings, and the blank canvases as a total farce. But to each their own I guess. Here are the pieces I liked, enjoy and have a happy day. ~ Rev Kane
