More Water Lilies

 

#15 sm

Yesterday I went to the Museum of Modern Art to see the Matisse Cut-Out show–no photos allowed, but it was so crowded it would have been nearly impossible anyway–and then I wandered into the Monet room afterwards.  The room in the old Modern was better, I remember an airiness about it, and I think it was larger.  But the water lilies…as always, amazing.

The autumn one reminded me of one of the Monet/haiku pages from my Sketchbook Project.  I also came home and did a rather busy collage, inspired by the feeling of Monet’s painting.  “Interesting”, but not sure what I think about it.

The full wall blue water lilies is so large I couldn’t fit it all into one photo…

I took lots of photos in the museum, and I own books with reproductions of lots of the Matisse cut-outs in the exhibit, so I’ll be revisiting what I saw yesterday in the coming weeks.

    I loved that old water lily room. The new MOMA doesn’t really do it for me any more. Your work is lovely, though.

    Yes it’s too enclosed. And I’m unhappy they took down the Folk Art Museum too. It’s too bad because they have a great collection and some good shows (though to be frank a lot of trendy garbage too). Wonder what the new Whitney downtown will be like?
