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.
This isn’t the first time I have posed a group at this window in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. And it’s probably not the last. Sometimes photographers find good places and they photograph them over and over.
I’ve returned to the Minneapolis Institute of Art. And I’ve taken another photo of Frank, by Chuck Close.
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?
This is a room at the Minneapolis Institute of Art that features the design work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The chairs at this dining table don’t look all that comfortable. But they are certainly stylish. I’m guessing that high-heeled shoes share the same quality.
I took my Photo/Media students to the Twin Cities last week and one of the stops was the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. While they were wandering on their own, I wandered, too.
This glass display case has been part of the Design collection for many years and I have photographed the beautiful glass before. But I’ve never posted anything to this blog.
As you can see, I used a large aperture (f4) to blur the background. The dark purple jar stands out because of the color but the blur does even more to emphasize this specimen. What I like about the display case that the glass is sitting in is that everything else is pure white. It’s as if the glassware is floating in space.
Today’s offering is another art museum interior – this time a shot of some of the work of the “crackpot” leaders of the Modern Art movement as seen at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. I happen to like the crackpots.
