A Little Modern Art from the Met

The Modern Art section of the Met was quite enjoyable.  Somehow, after all of the older landscapes and portraits, the more modern stuff was very refreshing.  Not to say that I don’t enjoy the older stuff, but there was something minty and wonderful about this part of the collection.

I especially love “The Innocent Eye Test” by Mark Tansey, on the left.

“Kouros” by Isamu Noguchi, 1944-1945, struck me as very playful. And it slyly references the Ancient Greeks, so clearly there is much to love!

“Bohemia Lies by the Sea” (oder “Böhmen liegt am Meer”) by Anselm Kiefer, 1996 was somberly beautiful.

“13/3” by Sol LeWitt, 1981 reminded me a bit of the Wexner Center for the Arts, located on the OSU campus.

My husband was particularly taken with “Attic” by Willem de Kooning, 1949.

“The Banquet of the Starved” by James Ensor, 1915, was a fascinating nightmare vision.
