Monet to Picasso Exhibit
Here are some of my favorites pieces at the Monet to Picasso exhibit at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. Worth going to? Yes, definitely, yes. Especially if you have never seen a Van Gogh or a Monet in person. The colors are so alive and the paint almost jumps off the canvas at you. You'll see why these artists are considered masters AND you'll see how art progressed and transitioned from realistic portraits to enhanced "impressions" of light on everyday scenes to surreal dreamscapes and abstracted forms. Plus, lets be honest, are any of us ever going to "flee to the Cleve" and see these amazing pieces in their place of habitual residence? But hurry! The exhibit is only here till Sept. 21. . .
