Hi everyone. Its another cloudy and showery Thursday here in my part of the world.
I spent my day doing a lot of art yesterday, but nothing got photographed or scanned in, so today I have a few more pieces from the Masters. These are some more photos I took at the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, which I visited on Tuesday. I'm still working my way through the Matisse photos I took, and I did visit the Botticelli exhibit too. That exhibit was smaller than the Matisse one, but both were quite crowded. Actually the museum was very busy for a Tuesday afternoon, and perhaps it was because of the special exhibits, or maybe it was the rain, but whatever the reason it was good to see so many people there.
The MFA is a fairly large museum, and my husband (who was with me) isn't really an art guy, but he was a good sport. So other than the special exhibits we visited, I didn't walk through a whole lot of the permanent collection. I did take a little stroll through some of the Impressionist exhibit particularly because I wanted to see the Van Gogh's. But here's a few of the popular artists that you've probably heard of that were in the same exhibit.
A couple of Cezanne's.
And a few Gauguin's.
They had several Degas pieces, but here is the only one I took a snapshot of.
This lady in the red coat happened to be walking about the same direction and speed as me.
And a Munch.
And lots of Monet's. I wonder with all the Monet art that is out there, what was the total number of pieces he actually created during his lifetime. Of course I look at how much I have created, and art is not my job, and I bet he made a whole lot.
So here's some Monet.
I like this Japanese inspired piece because its very different than I expect Monet to be.
And there must be water lilies.
But how can you not love Monet?
And finally today I have this Van Rysselberghe for you. I'm not really familiar with this artist, but I do the the light and the warm summery feel of this piece.
Off to an early appointment today. Hope your day is a good one.
