This is certainly not the first time I’ve posted a photo of Frank, by Chuck Close. One of the more interested illicit uses of one of my photos from this blog involved Frank (click here to read a tale of theft and Creative Commons copyright misdeeds).
Finally, this is not the first art gallery photo. In fact art galleries are one of my favorite places to take pictures. Why not take a few minutes to look at a few of my gallery interiors? Just click here.
And, as long as I’ve gone overboard with links in this post, here’s the one art gallery post in this blog that I like the most.
Just beyond the pottery featured in yesterday’s post I encountered this scene. Maybe it’s not at special as I think it is, but I liked how the human on the left complemented the figure on the right. It results in symmetry that would be absent with the standing woman. This was taken at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
This isn’t the first time I’ve posted Frank, by the artist Chuck Close. Frank resides in the Minneapolis Institute of Art and I’ve observed that he seems to get around since this is at least the 4th different gallery I remember seeing him in. Frank, incidentally, is a photo-realistic painting done from a photo of someone named Frank.
If you follow this blog and click on the “art museum” tag, you’ll see that I like to take shots of galleries in art museums. I especially like quiet moments like the one pictured here. It is rare to get a whole gallery (or two) to myself. Though I guess Frank is here with me, isn’t he?
