Yesterday, I took a spin through the Metropolitan Museum of Art…I assumed I would be in and out, but ended up staying almost all day. Regardless of the museum, my favorite exhibits are always Asian Art, European Paintings (especially Spanish) and Modern & Contemporary Art. I typically skip American, Egyptian, Greek, and African exhibits although yesterday I did browsed through and really enjoyed every minute of it – particularly the Egyptian tombs. Anyway, the Modern & Contemporary Art collection at the Met is fantastic. I could have spent my entire day just taking in this exhibit alone!
I especially loved the Bridget Riley Op Art collection…
It kind of reminded me of Villa alle Scalette
I literally couldn’t take my eye off the work by Roy Lichtenstein
Could you even image having a Lichtenstein-esque painting of a living room in your living room? I’m obsessed.
I have always admired the work of Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollack, but James Rosenquist is a new favorite of mine. I died when I saw this painting
Modern art certainly holds a special place in my heart. I like it because it looks so spectacular inside just about any room in any home. A relatively simple concept can pack a major punch. Everytime I visit a museum, I face the same dilemma… I want to buy every single peice of artwork that I can get my hands on.
Modern Art definitely isn’t for everyone. How do you feel about it?
