|Target with Four Faces - Jasper Johns|
Just a few works from the Museum of Modern Art.
I was particularly looking forward to seeing Van Gogh's
Starry Night. It did not disappoint!!
Also, Jasper Johns is an important artist to me -
he's considered the "father of modern encaustic."
I thought the MOMA had a Gustav Klimt - but
it was on loan or stored. I got a serendipitous tip
from a museum worker though that there was a
museum on 86th street which had several Klimts.
He's in my top ten favorite artists and I've never
seen one of his works in person as most of them are
in Austria. I was in for a huge wonderful surprise
because the beautiful Adele Bloch-Bauer lives at
The Neue Gallery.
She brought tears to my eyes and it was hard
to leave her glorious golden presence.
This picture is from a card. Photography was not allowed.
There were several other Klimts and it was so enjoyable.
