Museum of Fine Arts with Nat: Part Two

As promised, here is part two of my visit to the MFA (Museum of Fine Arts) with Nat!  All the photos you're going to see today are of artwork from 20th Century Artists.  Most of these photos are from (part of) the MFA's "Making Modern" exhibit.

That painted frame!!!  OMG!  That painted frame!  Do I sound excited?

I usually hate the way that museums frame art.  They often remove the artist's original frame and put it in something that just feels wrong.  A painted frame simply solves that problem.  The frame is part of the artwork.  Although, I'd argue that the frame is part of the artwork whether it's painted or not....

I don't know about you, but I love having all of these quotes from the artists by their work.  It's wonderful to have the opportunity to "hear" their thoughts a bit.

I loved the Pollock & Picasso exhibit.  It was small -- just one room.  But really interesting.  There was a video (you can see a photo of it) that was running side-by-side tape of Pollock and Picasso painting.  I definitely stood there for a while.  

Hope you enjoyed this peek at another part of the MFA.  Tomorrow I'm going to be sharing a totally different third section of our MFA adventure!

Thanks for stopping by!
