More Art

Art is subjective. A good way to explore it is by jumping into the pool, looking at a large collection and seeing what resonates with you personally. You're often surprised to like both a contemporary photograph and a 400-year old painting. You do you.

Here's art that spoke to me at the CMA on Sunday.

John Singer Sargent, "Carmella Bertagna" (1880)

Frank Stella, "La vecchia dell'orto" (1986)

Lucas Foglia, "Amanda After A Birthday Party, Jackson, Wyoming" (2010)

Richard Anuszkiewicz, "Dual Red" (1979)

Alison Saar, "Nocturne Navigator" (1998)

Erika Stone, "Lower Eastside Facade" (1947)


  1. What a huge variety! I find the second-to-last piece - the Brutalist sculpture - the most appealing to me.

  2. Interesting pieces Ally. I like the 'Amanda after a Birthday Party' one a lot.

  3. Thank you for sharing these! I really like "La vecchia dell'orto" and "Amanda after a Birthday Party".
