Hellooo everybody! Just a quick post that might be of interest to local Museworthy readers. I’ve been hearing really good things about two exhibitions currently on display at two of our major museums. The first is a show at the Guggenheim called “Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany, 1918 – 1936”. An instructor at FIT raved about it and strongly encouraged me to check it out. I haven’t yet but I definitely will soon, especially since I have some free days over the next couple of weeks.
The next one is at the Met and it’s called “Man, Myth, and Sensual Pleasures: Jan Gossart’s Renaissance”. Now I don’t know anything about this Flemish painter Gossart, but any art exhibit with the phrase “sensual pleasures” in the title sounds good to me 😉
The last word of mouth involves my own mouth. Yes, I’m off to the dentist in a little while for my first of two appointments. Waaah! I didn’t even attempt to find a dentist-related work of art to include in this post. Instead I have Pierre Bonnard’s Nude With Black Stockings, from 1900. The way I figure it is if I show up at the dentist’s office like this, he will be kind and gentle with me. Good strategy, right? Hey, I have black thigh-high stockings so why not? 😆
