MoMA New York

Of course, I was bound to do a post on MoMA New York πŸ˜‰ The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is an art museum in Midtown Manhattan in
New York City (on 53rd Street) between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. It has been important in developing and collecting modernist art, and is often identified as the most influential museum of modern art in the world. The museum’s collection offers an overview of modern and contemporary art, including works of architecture and design, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, prints, illustrated books and artist’s books, film, and electronic media. The collection houses important and familiar works as The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, The Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau, The Dream (1910), by Henri Rousseau, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Pablo Picasso, Campbell’s Soup Cans by Andy Warhol, Painting (1946) by Francis Bacon and Water Lilies triptych by Claude Monet (among others). I didn’t go all out photographing the paintings, as I already enjoyed the museum thoroughly just sitting there in front of the works. But I hope these will give you somewhat of an idea of the museum’s collection.

  • Those paintings are amazing!

    • THEAVANTGUARDIAN

      They are, aren’t they? I wish I could have a Monet hanging up my walls πŸ˜‰

  • Q

    Mooie impressie, hoewel ik die kindertekening tweede onder de vlag weiger te erkennen als kunst. Pollock kan ik nog begrijpen ivm het ritme dat erin zit maar goed zo heeft ieder zijn favorieten.

    Wie heeft trouwens dat polka valse stuk gemaakt? En doet moma niet aan Rothko of heb je die overgeslagen? Herken zijn stijl niet in ieder geval.

    • THEAVANTGUARDIAN

      Gino Severini πŸ˜‰ Er zit inderdaad niets bij van Rothko!

  • ik vond het al mega jammer dat ik hier niet geweest ben toen ik in NY was, maar naar deze foto’s wil ik hier toch echt zeker een keer heen..
    i like what a see

    • THEAVANTGUARDIAN

      Doen!

  • That place is such a must to visit! If I ever visit NTY, I will visit the Moma. Great pics πŸ™‚

    • THEAVANTGUARDIAN

      You have to! Thanks! πŸ™‚

      πŸ˜€

  • Very interesting place!

    • THEAVANTGUARDIAN

      It is!

  • Oh wat gaaf! Ik ben echt fan van hedendaagse kunst. Als ik ooit weer in New York ben wil ik ook zeker een bezoekje brengen aan het MoMA.

    • THEAVANTGUARDIAN
