World Class Art Trail In NY
Museums and art galleries exist everywhere, in all cities, but very few can rival the level of world class art experience that New York art scene has to offer.
Say you have a day and you want to get immersed into the world class art?
You are in the right place because in this post I will describe an art trail in Manhattan, to see the unparalleled variety of world class art, including the 3 of the 5 most important works of the 20h century. *
1. Guggenheim Museum *
The museum has a collection of Kandinsky, Picasso and others.
As of Jan 2019 there is a retrospective of Hilma Af Klint, a painter
who could have been credited a creator of Abstract Art style, had she
not been so arrogant.
2. Neue Galerie - to see the famous "Woman in Gold" by Gustav Klimt. See a movie "Woman in Gold" beforehand to appreciate one of a dramatic stories of the 20th centiry.
3. Met Museum - lots of staff to see, but some of my favourites are Caravaggio - "The
Musicians", 1597, and the "Denial of Saint Peter", 1610.
4. MOMA - to see 2 of the 5 most important works of the 20th Century.
A. Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" 1907 (#2
of the top 5
works of the 20th century) is considered to be a revolutionary work
that signaled the development of Cubism, and a radical departure from the traditional realistic painting.
B. Matisse's "Red Studio" 1911 (#5
of the top 5) is considered the first work that abandoned perspective and abstracted the reality into the flat surface and areas of pure color, which inspired American artist Mark Rothko to develop his famous large scale Meditation works.
5. Whitney Museum - as of January 2019 a retrospective of Andy Warhol is on display in several floors, and it
includes the #3
of the top 5 paintings of the 20th century - the portrait of Merilyn Monroe.
You can take in 1 day or 3.
