Thanks, Jean! They are pretty good-looking subjects...both the art and the people!

Oh! Terrific pictures Beth. Works of art to rival those on the MOMA walls!

oh those lovely Brancusi pieces, and I love the shot of the three men in black with black or white hair in front of the b/w images

Beth, I kept thinking about these and seeing them, overnight. They are so lovely: the light, the colours, the composition and juxtapositions. Art galleries are a gift to the photographer, of coure. I remarked on this myself recently: http://tastingrhubarb.blogspot.com/2010/11/alice-neel-reprised.html - not a gift everyone notices or can take up, though.

I haven't been here for a while, and I am reminded that I should visit regularly. What evocative photographs and sensitive drawings (in a previous post). I won't miss any more.

What a rich experience NYC offers. I haven't been there for several years, except for quickly passing through on the way to a cruise.
What about MOMA? I really don't like the building. If I knew then what I know now I would have spent all my museum going time there at the Met. But I do understand from what I read in the NYT that MOMA has improved of late.

Thank you, Natalie (I don't agree, but thank you for the compliment!)

FireBird, yes. The Brancusi pieces are really beautiful --and photogenic. Those three men are near and dear to me, and I was amused by their black-and-whiteness too!

Anne, thank you so much for visiting, whenever you do! I appreciate it, and appreciate your comments. None of us can keep up with as many blogs as we'd like.

Well, Hattie, I really like MOMA and I like the building pretty well too. My problem is that it costs so much to get in! The Met, by contrast, always has great exhibitions and is by donation. We would have gone there this time instead, except that our friend had a corporate pass to MOMA that allowed entrance for five people. And the exhibition of work by women photographers was well worth the trip.

I guess I'm being unfair. I always compare any museum I go to to the Louvre, which is, of course, incomparable.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
