Rockstar Paintings

Every gallery seems to have its “Rockstar” paintings. In this case, it is “The Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh at MOMA.

As stunning as it is this is not the image to go and enjoy at the Museum.
All you can hope for is to shuffle up the queue until it is your 30 seconds of wonder before you get moved along.

  1. This is an interesting commentary on how people view and learn about art. As you say, not necessarily the most enoyable way to view art! Did I blink and miss No 2 ???

  2. I know what you mean. But in this case, though it is a most striking painting, more than 30 seconds would do my head in.

  3. Thank you for your art series. Enjoyed them!

  4. Ian, this captures my frustration at art galleries. I just want quiet time to contemplate and lose myself in the images BUT alas … great series.
