MOMA is the abbreviation for New York’s renowned Museum of Modern Art. The collections here are some of the world’s top and finest selections both in terms of quantity and quality. Perhaps only the Musée d’Orsay of Paris can be comparable.
Most people come to New York’s MOMA for “The Starry Night” by Van Gogh. This for me is also my favorite work from Van Gogh. The melancholy and passion we see here is unforgettable.
In 1889, Van Gogh’s mental illness struck him again. After an intense argument with Gauguin, he cut off one of his ears, wrapped it in a handkerchief and gave it as a gift to a prostitute. After that, he was sent to the Saint-Paul Asylum in Saint-Rémy. He ended up staying there for 1 year and 8 days. There, he continued to offer creative work, completing some 150 oil paintings and 100 sketches. His drawings now are completely leaning toward Expressionism. In his paintings, painted strokes much like waves in the sea and balls of fire are filled with a deep sense of melancholy and his tragic illusions. The oil painting “The Starry Night” is representative of this period in his life.
Other than the best of Van Gogh, here you’ll also find the best of Picasso. This incredible work, entitled “Les Demoiselles d'Avignon” is not only indicative of a great turning point in Picasso’s personal art career, it is a revolutionary breakthrough in contemporary Western art, which has led to the rise of cubism.
JOJO’s wonderful trip
Compared to the metropolis, MOMA's style is naturally more modern and interactive, and installation art and video art are not available in the metropolis. It is home to a large collection of modern art masterpieces (within nearly 100 years) and is the first museum dedicated to the collection of modern art. In addition to painting, there are also films, photographs, and industrial designs.
When I stand in front of "Starry Night", only half a meter away from it, I can clearly see that the thick brush strokes are like reliefs on the canvas. The blue, yellow, white, and black of different levels of intensity collide with each other and softly blend together. The moment I saw the real thing, I realized that "Starry Night" lying in the paper medium is just a photo, and the real thing is the real living soul.
Van Gogh Star Trek
[The Starry Night (1889)]
Vincent van Gogh Vincent William Van Gogh (1853-1890), Dutch post-impressionist painter. He was a pioneer of expressionism and deeply influenced the art of the 20th century, especially the Fauvism and German expressionism. "Star Moonlight Night" is a famous oil painting created by Van Gogh in a mental hospital in Saint-Rmy, and is considered to be one of his masterpieces.
Monet Water Lily
[Water Lilies Water Lily (1914-26)]
Claude Monet Claude Monet (18401926) French painter
This painting is too long, It is difficult to see the details in the overall appreciation. The painting itself is composed of three drawing boards.
The size of these three paintings is so large that the viewer is not only admired from the side, but also more like being in the works. "Water Lily" was created at the end of Monet's artistic career. At this time, the painter's work has gradually appeared in the color of abstraction. The author paints water in each painting, but never shows a little pool. This is a mysterious and unpredictable world. There is no clear definition of anything. These paintings are painted with fuzzy blends of strokes to form an abstract misty color. In the darker areas of the canvas, the pool seems to be covered with a layer of shadow, showing the deep cold green of a pine forest. The bright areas reflect the color of the sky with shiny blue and green on the peacock's tail, as well as a large, radiant reflection of the sun's surface, which is smeared on the canvas with some patchy cream pigments. A cluster of floating green lotus leaves occupy most of the space in the pond, while the pink, lavender and yellow spots on the lotus leaves represent the water lily itself. These works are the crystallization of Monet's life-long exploration of light effects. They are both a visual record of Monet's own gardens and ponds, and a meditation carried by pigments.
