Artworks of the Masters

Last week we went to Salt Lake to the Museum of Fine Arts to see their Monet to Picasso exhibit. The works were amazing and I would encourage everyone to go see it before it leaves in September.

I knew that I would like the exhibit, but I had no idea how much Rocky would enjoy all the colorful paintings. Her eyes would get huge and she would stare at them intensely. She was very well-behaved and caught the attention of many of the museum's guests. I was stopped by people speaking French, Spanish and another language that I didn't recognize. Who would think that anyone would stop and stare at a baby when surrounded by art from the modern European masters? I guess babies all take on their own form and style, and they are 'limited edition' because they only stay small for a short period of time.

This was Rocky's favorite picture. Portrait of a Woman by Amedeo Modigliani



My mom really liked The Red Kercheif: Portrait of Mrs. Monet (La Capeline Rouge Portrait De Madame Monet) by Claude Monet.Jill was a big fan of Vincent Van Gogh's The Poplars at Saint-Remh (Les peupliers Sur La Colline).
Brandon and I found our favorites too, but they didn't have the pictures for me to steal from the museum's website. If you want to see them you will have to go for yourself. It's $15 and worth every penny.
Just because you're lucky I'll let you look at my greatest piece of art for free.
