More Water Lilies
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.
