With more than 4,000 works of art on display, the newly-renovated Yale University Art Gallery is a true blessing! Even more so, given that it’s a mere 10 minutes from my house. It’s where I found myself on Sunday, with my sister and nephew. We spent most of our time in the Modern and Contemporary Art collection, which offered up colorful eye-candy for the wee one…and for us!
We saw curious glances…
Portrait of a Young Woman, Amedeo Modigliani
and playful colors.
Girl in White Chemise, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
We wandered past dreamscapes…
The Toppling/Somersault, Joan Miró
The Forest, Paul Delvaux
and grand expressions of something else.
This Expedition, Beloved and Despised, Continues Regardless, Lari Pittman
Including and not limited to the kitchen sink!
Sink of Spells, David Ireland; Grand Hotel de l’Etoile, Joseph Cornell; Papillons, Max Ernst.
