Call me crazy but I love these works! And to continue my confession, I had the chance to go see the Robert Henri show at the San Diego Museum of Art in the gorgeous Balboa Park AND before entering the rooms with Henri's work I had to go to the Contemporary section first! I love a good abstract!
Not all these are abstracts of course. I responded to many works and many "isms".
And I should have posted a few of Henri's work. Did you know his last name was actually Cozad. As in Cozad, Nebraska! Yes, he was from Nebraska and if you get a chance to read his biography it reads like a TV drama mini series!
So quiet. ?
Bob Thompson will always be a favorite. He died too young!
And of course Joan Mitchell. She did a series of sunflowers that are wonderful.
Huh? Love it!
I should try some allegorical paintings. This is a beauty! Daphne resisting and fleeing Apollo's advances, she is saved by her father when he transforms her into a tree.
And these charming still lives by Mabel Alvarez. Saw these at the L.A.
Just fun! ?
Exquisite! from all angles. ?
