Recognizable Art


I thought since I had a post about some questionable art/fashion yesterday, I should have a post today that included some art that is easily recognizable as such.  This wall-sized painting called "Processing Sheep" by William Franklin Midgette fits the bill.  There is no denying this life-sized painting is a true work of art.


I hadn't been over to the South Wing of the museum in a while so it was refreshing to browse around the European and American art pieces.  And, you can tell from the second photo that I almost had the place to myself.  I'm not sure why this wing was so quiet last Friday but it was certainly a relaxing visit.

I added the painting to the left because it really struck my curiosity.  I don't remember seeing it before and I think it is quite beautiful with that handsome young man reading his book in a lovely garden.  The description card said that the artist was unknown but that for a time it was credited to Camille Pissarro.  I like it very much.

Recognise that as art but the art comes in many forms

The first wall size painting is fantastic Sharon. The layout in the second shot is very much like our art gallery, I quite like it when I have it to myself 😀

How interesting that they don't know who painted that third painting. I feel like that's pretty unusual in relatively recent museum art. I do like the painting, as well as the top one.
