Looking DESPERATELY for the name on a painting...it's at the philadelphia museum of art. PLEASE HELP!?
So, I saw this painting when I was at the Philadelphia Museum of Art last April. I came home and tried to search the title, but didn't find anything. Last time I was at the Museum, I was there for the modern art section, but ran around looking for this painting before they closed and never found it.
It's called Daydreams or Daydreamer or something like that. It has two women in white dresses sitting under a tree, one of them old, one young. The young one is plucking flower petals off of a flower that's sitting in her lap. It's a 19th century painting, I think.
Any ideas, anyone?
It's called Day Dreams, by Sir George Clausen. Painted in 1883, oil on canvas. You can find pictures of it via google images, but good luck having it show up on the Philadelphia Museum page. I've never seen such a messed up search function that returns all sorts of things except what you're looking for. Anyway. Hope that helps!
What are some examples of modern visual artworks that are critical of the art industry?
I am looking for pieces produced 1900-present and have qualities which can be interpreted as self-critical, art-market critical, museum-critical – in essence, pieces that are critical of the art industry at large.
Unfortunately none that i know of but if there are some id like to see them.
Is it okay to not like modern art?
I just went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art a few days ago. I positively loved all of the paintings from the famous artists of the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. They were so beautiful and you could tell that the artists put a lot of effort and life in to their paintings as well as in the painting's message. Well, after wards I looked at the modern art and really didn't like it. I understand that each piece conveyed a message and all that, but for the most part, they were missing the beauty of the previous paintings. One painting there, no joke, was actually a single yellow dot of paint in the center of a blank canvas. That's just being lazy.
Yes, of course, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having your own opinion about things. I don't really think modern art is really all that creative or amazing at all. I mean, A YELLOW DOT! There is nothing cool about that. (sorry modern artist who did that!)
First date at an art museum?
I want to do something with a guy that i like. I thought about going to the museum of modern art cause it looks interesting.
But i want to make sure he has fun.
What can i do to make this trip fun not boring?
Not every guy/girl enjoys a date at the museum, but if you do there's no reason not to go. It's a good way to find out if you both have similar interests and if he likes you enough to do something that you like even though it's not his favorite thing. Just let him know beforehand that after the museum he can pick where to go next (assuming that's ok with you). And bring a digital camera! It's more fun when you can take pictures of each other doing fun things together and swap them by phone or email later.
