What do you do with an afternoon in New York. Location Time Square. Cool Spring weather. Arrangements to meet friends for dinner and a show. Which leaves about 4 hours maximum to ‘DO’ something significant and memorable. I looked at the map and walked up to the Museum of Modern Art, or MoMA as the locals fondly call it.
I explored the works exhibited on the various levels, each more overwhelming than the next. One could spent days there to do real justice to the paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography and films on offer.
Some of the highlights were Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Salvador Dali’s Illuminated Pleasures and Frida Kahlo’s Fulang-Chang and I. (Included below). There was also Henri Rousseau’s Sleeping Gypsy, Degas, Picasso, Klimt, Monet, Matisse’s Dance and Andy Warhol’s Elvis and Marilyn among other greats which I lingered in front of, truly humbled by the surrealness of the moment and opportunity.
