A Couple of Days in Los Angeles

16 Oct

Two glorious days of art! We spent the first day in the LA County Museum of Art with a quick visit to the Brea Tar Pits. Join us for a brief tour of delights and tomorrow come with us to the Craft and Folk Museum where we met two of the artists, Clare Graham and Danny Scheible.

La Gerbe by Henri Matisse, a ‘cut out’ in ceramics.
I loved the Standing Warrior, a Mexican sculpture from BC 200-300 AD.

Isn’t this painting by Mary Cassatt beautiful? I love the tenderness in the Mother’s face and the relaxed sleepy child.

This next piece fascinated me, such detail in the wood carving – Hollywood by Robert Witt Ames. Click on the photo and delight in all the humour and the detail.

We really enjoyed seeing so many school children in the gallery. Here some of them are sketching from David Hockney’s Mullholland Drive.

After lunch at the Gallery we walked to the nearby La Brea Tar Pits where natural asphalt has seeped up from the ground for tens of thousands of years. Enlarge the photo to see the bubbles.

The outdoor sculpture garden was a haven of peace.

We finished the day with a Hollywood Cocktail and a walk back to our B&B, Cinema Suites, as the sun was setting.
