October 24 2004 Art Appreciation Newsletter


I recently visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. I always enjoy viewing the seemingly limitless amount of sculpture. The American Wing has some impressive Augustus Saint Gaudens pieces, namely "Amor Caritas" and "Diana." The original Diana whom stood atop Madison Square Garden, now reside at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The European Sculpture Court is a lovely place to sit, relax, have a bite to eat, and ponder Rodin's "Burghers of Calais." The highlight of my trip was the Cantor Roof Garden. It is open when weather permits, until the end of October. What a great place to take in the skyline of NY and Central Park. They usually display sculpture from the museum's collection. This year they chose Andy Goldsworthy, an English artist, to create a sculpture installation for the roof garden. "Stone Houses" were 2 enormous houses made from split rails from New England white cedar. Within the houses were granite stones, ranging in weight from 1 1/2 tons to 2 ounces, stacked one on top of the other. You could get up close and peer into the houses to see the rock pyramids. I was lucky enough to be in NY on a beautiful, sunny fall day to see this wonderful exhibit. Buy Posters Here From AllPosters.com
