"Art will remain the most astonishing activity of mankind born out of struggle between wisdom and madness, between dreams and reality in our mind."

Actually, I was hoping to have spaghetti at the Getty...but couldn't find a yeti.
So I ended up having a portabello sandwich - which was excellent. The cafe at the museum
was really top notch. One of the best museum cafes I've experienced.

Inside the museum are the Rubens and Monets but I didn't take any pictures because
I just couldn't do them the least bit of justice. Besides there's some great high rez images on
the internet.  

The grounds are peppered with stand-only statutes which I love. 
                            You can see that the museum staff really gave thought to placement.

 How do these works of art occupy space? Do they push or pull it?

A little bit of linear vertical poetry. Will the top portion collapse or float away?

        A Henry Moore - you cannot call yourself a fine museum unless you have at least one Henry.

Thanks for stopping by.
