Picasso Perfection at the Phillips Collection

Leave a comment

The Phillips Collection remains one of my favorite art museums.  The incredible level of curation at the new Picasso exhibit shows why.  Great combinations in addition to world class art.  Top notch.

For those who know their picasso, this is early stuff, basically 1901-1904 (including the blue period).

We went to the show as a last birthday present of the 38th year.  Thanks Romey. What an excellent present, art with the ones you love.

PICASSO

 

 

NOT PICASSO

 

 

My favorite painting at the Phillips.

In a new spot.

After art, we were hoping to have brunch at the Bistrot Du Coin, but once again the google hours were wrong.  Fortunately, there was La Tomate to fill in admirably.  We had lots of cacio et pepe.  Ahhhh.

The Indiana University Art Musem

Smack dab in the heart of campus, the IU Art Museum occupies a beautiful building designed by I.M.Pei (whose initials spell out imp, for what it’s worth).  The collection is well curated and presents a blend of historical artifacts in one space and an art collection in others.

Visit if you can.

START

A special exhibit of Dürer prints was on display in the 3rd floor gallery.  This was one of those many life coincidences as Eli and I had been discussing his art the night before somewhat spontaneously.  The world is small.

Ancient art was also available if the 1500s were too recent.

The contemporary collection includes mostly minor works, but has a nice blend of artifacts.

LOL

Off the cliff, chased by Native Americans!

 

Which results in an erection?! OK then.

The Hakone Outdoor Museum is Fantastic

An outdoor sculpture garden in the mountains of Japan. What more could you want?

Submitted mostly without comment. Skip the Picasso. Go for the Moore.
