A favorite trip of mine was when we visited MoMA. This museum includes many types of drawings and paintings that I love. For instance, I saw a well known piece from one of my favorite artists, Andrew Wyeth. This painting is called "Christina's World."
With some research I read that Christina, whose full name is Christina Olsen, was a neighbor of Andrew Wyeth's and she had polio which left her lower body paralyzed.
I believe that a majority of my peers in my class enjoyed the Museum of Modern Art due to the collection's variety and quantity. Not only did I find various pieces of art that I was familiar with and obsessed over but, I found new artists and their work.
I found an etching entiteld "Large Head." It was created by Lucian Freud in 1993. The subject matter of this image is precisely the same as the title. A picture of a large man's head takes up most of the center of the composition. The first thing I notice with this painting is a large head but one that seems to have "too much on top" as in the head does not look proportioned correctly (basically it looks like a defective egg.)
So far I love being able to experience new York's greatest Museums. I feel so fortuante to see different kinds of art whether it's paintings, etchings, or three dimensional. It is exciting and rewarding to see the masterpieces that I spend hours looking at in books and then get the chance to see the work in full size (and touching distance.)
